Now a days romance stories are huge. Whether outlandish or something you can see yourself involved in. So, to pick a favorite love story is very hard. There are the favorite’s that are popular today like Kellan and Kiera (Thoughless Series), Travis and Abby (Beautiful Disaster), Lake and Will (Slammed Series), Gideon and Eva (Crossfire Series) and Christian and Anna (Fifty Shades Series). There are also the classics like Mr. Darcy and Elisabeth Bennett, Heathcliff and Catherine and Gatsby and Daisy. I could go on and on with favorite fictional character’s love stories. But, I would have to say my favorite love story is one I read recently.
John and Ann Betar are the longest married couple in the United States. They have been married for 80 yrs. They weren’t actually supposed to get married. Ann fled an arranged marriage and eloped with John. They were neighbors and grew up together. They fell in love during the trips of John driving Ann to school. When I read this story I thought that in today’s day and age that kind of happy ending is rarely non-fiction. That is probably why we read these happily ever after stories. On a day where we celebrate love and love stories I am finding that the true one’s are the best and give us the greatest hope for that great love.
