Love conquers all: A couple held both Christian and Muslim weddings to show respect for each other’s religions

Love conquers all: A couple held both Christian and Muslim weddings to show respect for each other’s religions

  • A couple, whose belief was taken over by love, and many years of relationship, finally got married
  • They both held Islam and Catholic marriage ceremonies
  • Both fathers are known to be strict with their respective religious practices, but have agreed to compromise for the wedding of their children

Marriage is a bond where two people are bound to love each other for eternity, and religion is a belief of faith to one supernatural being they call GOD. With two people who love each other, despite having different religions, was blessed with respect on their different beliefs.

Both Christian and Muslim religions strictly follow their belief and practices that sometimes lead to misunderstanding and arguments. Some would have avoided having a relationship with those from other religions, because one must sacrifice to which belief should be followed.

Unlike this couple, whose belief was taken over by love after many years of relationship, and finally got married.

Twitter user @itsairidesu posted on twitter the story of her sister’s wedding to her long-time Muslim boyfriend. What was unusual is that they both held Islam and Catholic marriage ceremonies. The couple received so much respect that both families have decided to unite, as she also wished that the world could do the same.

Conflicts among religious denominations, especially Catholics and Muslims, have been one of the problems not only in our country, but also the whole world. Because of this conflict, many civilians have lost their loved ones and home.

Though the government is already having their blueprint to solve this conflict, until now, it hasn’t been agreed upon and, thus, have not united in peace.

The wedding of Airi’s sister gives us hope that someday both religions would learn to compromise with each other, and respect each other’s belief for the love of its people.

Like both the fathers of the couple, who are known to be strict with their respective religious practices, have agreed to compromise for the wedding of their children.

Truly, love conquers everything.

Secret to your success? It’s who you marry, science says

Secret to your success? It’s who you marry, science says

  • A new study has discovered that your success depends on who you marry.
  • Spouses can greatly affect our decisions that can either make us successful or not.

If you want to be successful, you should also consider who you’re going to marry.

That’s according to a study carried out by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. The findings of their study showed that spouses can greatly affect our decisions that can either make us successful or not.

In the study published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, researchers studies 163 married couples. Each one from the pairs was given a choice: to solve a simple puzzle or compete for a prize. Researchers recorded the couples’ interactions as they both decide which to choose.

They discovered that people with more encouraging partners were more likely to take on the challenge and compete for the prize, while those with partners who discouraged them opted to to solve the simple puzzle.

Six months following the experiment, they also found out that those who did the more challenging task reported having better psychological well-being, happiness, growth, and better relationships compared to those who solved puzzles.

“We found support for the idea that the choices people make at these specific decision points—such as pursuing a work opportunity or seeking out new friends—matter a lot for their long-term well-being,” Brooke Feeney of CMU’s Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences said..

She added: “Significant others can help you thrive through embracing life opportunities. Or they can hinder your ability to thrive by making it less likely that you’ll pursue opportunities for growth.”

With that in mind, would world’s richest person Bill Gates, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, former US President Barrack Obama, and music legend Beyonce Knowles  achieved the level of success they have now if they were married to another person.

Wives are happier with uglier husbands, study confirms

Wives are happier with uglier husbands, study confirms

  • A study has found that wives tend to be happier with uglier husbands.
  • Wives with handsome husbands were more likely to follow strict diet and constantly attempt to lose weight for an obvious reason- to look hot for their partners.

Do you ever wonder some gorgeous women end up with ugly dudes?

Science has finally confirmed what Filipino rapper Andrew E. has long concluded in his famous 90’s hit Humanap ka ng Panget– women tend to be happier with less attractive husbands.

The ugly truth about attractiveness was determined through a study carried out by researchers at the Florida State University. In the study, relationships of 113 newlywed couples in their 20’s were evaluated to determine the role of attractiveness in an individual’s overall happiness.

Respondents were asked to to answer a questionnaire about their personal desires to be fit and to diet. Moreover, each respondent was ranked on desirability based on face and body attractiveness.

Results showed that wives with handsome husbands were more likely to follow strict diet and constantly attempt to lose weight for an obvious reason- to look hot for their partners.

Just by thinking about crash diets and rigorous exercises can make one very worried and a little less happy.

Meanwhile, wives with less attractive husbands didn’t feel the need to do these things just to please their husbands. Instead, they spend most of their time enjoying life with their not-so-attractive beaus.

“The results reveal that having a physically attractive husband may have negative consequences for wives, especially if those wives are not particularly attractive,” researcher Tania Reynolds said.

“The research suggests there might be social factors playing a role in women’s disordered eating,” she added.

Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus Postpone Wedding Preparations, Clear Split Issues

  • Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth postpones their wedding
  • Liam Hemsworth gets stressed with his future with Miley Cyrus

Liam-Miley splits again?

One thing is for sure, Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth won’t be saying I Do’s anytime soon. According to reports, the power couple decided to postpone their wedding set later this year. It was also said that the decision was not mutual with Miley not approving it. Liam was said to be overwhelmed with the stress and his future with the popstar.

On the other hand, the 24-year-old actress/singer understands why Hemsworth canceled their marriage. It was for their common good but admits frustration with the hunk actor.

In a statement, leading magazine in the US said, “She desperately wants to be married. After all the effort she’s made to change her ways and fit into his more traditional family, she now feels like she needs to step back and wait again.”

Miley’s noticeable change

With the release of her latest album “Malibu”, Cyrus offered another side of her again. Demure look and conservative style of music. She then revealed that she stopped smoking marijuana. Reason behind? All for Liam, I guess?

According to a reliable source, Miley’s parents also have a take on this issue. “Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus want Miley to settle down, and they want Liam as a son-in-law.”

Mrs. Hemsworth in the making

The reliable source also explains that Miley can wait as long as it takes just to marry Liam. “Miley doesn’t care if they’re engaged another five years. When the time is right, she thinks they’ll both just know.”

Boo! Cliffhanger. We know, we know. We’ll keep you updated!

Heartbreaking! Wife Helps Husband Find New Love Before She Dies

Heartbreaking! Wife Helps Husband Find New Love Before She Dies

Watching your wife suffer from sickness is heartbreaking, but seeing her find a new love for you hurts even more.

Clare and John Mauremootoo was just an ordinary couple living in Somerset, United Kingdom, until Clare, 39, suffered from a disease that heavily affected her motor neurons.

Death Wish

Clare’s death wish is far different from other wishes–for John to find new love so their two kids could be guided by a mother figure. She also wanted someone to look after her husband, keep him company.

During her darkest times, she was able to set aside her own feelings and asked the hospital staff at Weston Hospice to help her arrange possible dates for her husband. John, on the other hand, is hesitant to accept his wife’s wish. He is not yet ready to forget what he and Clare had. He wanted to spend more time with her dying wife.

They even had a wonderful Valentine’s Date in 2007 before Clare passed away.

Five days after their last Valentine’s together, Clare died. Thinking about his wife’s last wish, John did not immediately act on it. He thought about what his sons, Jack (10) and Ben (7) would feel.

John Meets Julie

Months after her wife’s death, John signed up for an online dating website. There, she met Julie Macfarlane, a single mother of two. In March 2008, they decided to move in together. But it took them years to tie the knot, because they wanted their kids to grow first.

And in April of 2012, they finally exchanged vows and during their wedding, John spoke about Clare and said he thinks she’s happy now. Happy that he finally fulfilled her death wish.

“During my speech, I talked about Clare’s diagnosis and the time we’d spent together, and her wish for me to find someone special. I told everyone I tought Clare would be smiling down on us. She wanted us to be happy and I think she would be, seeing how things turned out,” John said in an interview.

This Wife Called Out A Waitress For Being A Flirt, The Waitress’ Response Was Gold

This Wife Called Out A Waitress For Being A Flirt, The Waitress’ Response Was Gold

Jealousy is normal in every couple’s life, it’s good but it can get unhealthy.

Jessica Morris works as a waitress living in Centerville, Ohio. She did not expect she will be causing a buzz on the internet.

It’s one normal working day for Jessica in the restaurant she’s working at until a newlywed couple arrived to celebrate their honeymoon. As part of her job, she established a friendly relationship with the couple, helping them what to order, and provided the two with good service.

Slap Back

Wife Called Out Waitress For Being Flirt
A nasty comment was written at the bottom of the receipt

However, when she was asked to get the bill, instead of receiving a tip, she received a nasty comment. A note was written at the bottom of the receipt that says, “He’s my husband! Find your own! Good Luck”.

Jessica was dumbfounded, not knowing what to do, she wrote a letter replying to the rude woman:

“Dear bitter bride,

I would like you to know, the server that was in the section across from mine, that I kept talking to and checking on throughout the time of you sitting at my table IS MY HUSBAND. Which I found on my own, and looks better than yours. Also, I would like you to know that I’m sorry MY HUSBAND treated me to a cruise for my honeymoon and not a restaurant. As well as, MY HUSBAND would never let me feel so insecure that I would feel the need to write such a terrible note to a server and make them feel the way you have.

So bitter bride, here’s a life tip for you from me, your insecurity as a woman is heartbreaking. Have pride in yourself and your relationship with YOUR husband to where you don’t need to put another down to bring yourself up. Especially a server who lives off her tips and needs them to help her husband pay bills. Also, I hope you like the pen you stole from me, because it’s my present to you. One NEWLYWED to another.

P.S – my husband said you can sit in his section next time that way you won’t have to be so worried about your husband “flirting” with a server. Maybe you’ll see his ring a little better than you saw mine.

Signed,

Jessica

It’s unfortunate how we let jealousy consume us, letting ourselves do things that we would regret in the future. It makes us look so desperate.

Keep it classy, fam!

Did Jessica slay or nah? Let us know.

Clever Wife Gives the Most Amusing Response to Her Husband who Forgot His Wedding Ring

Clever Wife Gives the Most Amusing Response to Her Husband who Forgot His Wedding Ring

In a marriage, it is considered a violation when one of the couple forgets to wear their wedding band. Some couples even fight about it if the offender fails to give a valid reason for doing so since they both expect each other to wear the most vital symbol of their relationship.

This scenario might have happened to almost every couple and they surely know how hard it is to woo their partners after doing something offensive.

On the other hand, this wife made the initiative to give a ‘sanction’ as a disciplinary action to her husband who forgot to wear their ring.

Carla Cezar-Barriga’s Facebook post went viral because of her witty Notice to Explain email to her husband.

Along with her post, she included a screenshot of her email which contains detailed information about the wrongdoing he committed and the charges to be imposed for the first offense.

Also, she posted the apologetic response of the offender – and also her husband Ranji Barriga, who willingly gave a satisfactory explanation and accepted the sanction given to him.

The people of the internet who have read Barriga’s post found it extremely hilarious and sweet. Some of them even said that they got an idea which they can implement to their partners in the future.

Barriga said she did it instead of starting a fight, which everyone agreed to as appropriate and very innovative of her. What she had done is something couples can apply to their relationships, that instead of starting an argument, let the other party explain themselves as to which they can give ‘sanctions’ they prefer.
