I said ‘no worries, I just thought you should know’,” Hayley wrote.</p> <p dir="ltr">“I’ve tried to keep things amicable with him, to be clear on what his involvement with our child will be. I’ve asked him to do all the appointments and he did come to the ultrasound.”</p> <p dir="ltr">“At the end of the day I have decided to keep the baby because I have enough love for this child with or without a biological father. I will be enough for him or her.”</p> <p dir="ltr">Hayley has also revealed why she decided to come forward and share her story: “I am speaking my truth before it gets misconstrued by the public and tabloids who don’t know the full story.”</p> <p dir="ltr">“This is my story to tell.”</p> <p dir="ltr">Farmer Will had been posting about his reality TV experience on Instagram and tagging 32-year-old paediatric nurse Jaimee.</p> <p dir="ltr">Since the finale has aired, he hasn’t shared any more posts with Jaimee.</p>

Couple blasted for “horrific” tiered meals for guests

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A couple has been slammed online for their unusual method of selecting meals for the guests at their wedding.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The wedding invitation was shared on </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.reddit.com/r/weddingshaming/comments/itnewu/bigger_cash_gift_better_dinner/" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Reddit</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> with the caption “Bigger cash gift = better dinner?”, and shows the food guests can choose - depending on how much they plan to spend on the wedding gift.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“So that we may prepare your preferred dinner, please circle your gift level and indicate a meal of choice for each person in your party,” the invitation read.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The note included four tiers: “Loving Gift”, “Silver Gift”, “Golden Gift”, and “Platinum Gift”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The “Loving Gift” includes gifts worth up to $250, with guests being served roast chicken or swordfish.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The next tier up, the “Silver Gift”, would see guests giving presents worth between $251 and $500 being served sliced steak or poached salmon.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For guests spending between $501 and $1000 on the gift, they can choose between any of the choices for the lower tiers, filet mignon, or lobster tails.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The final tier, for presents worth between $1001 and $2500 plus, allows guests to choose any of the other options or a two-pound lobster. As well, they receive a souvenir champagne goblet.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Additionally, vegetarian and kosher options are only available at the platinum level.</span></p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 373.4375px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7842676/89xd5zz0dfn51.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/b628df38a8444fe481acbc818cf80ae0" /></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Image: Reddit</span></em></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The post sparked outrage, with some calling it a “tacky” decision.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“That is horrific. My response would be zero and I will bring McDonald’s,” one person wrote.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Who doesn’t want a souvenir champagne glass from someone else’s wedding? For $2500, I can fly to Ireland, stay a week, and buy a Waterford flute …” another commented.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“This seems more like something you would encounter at a charity dinner than at a wedding.

What’s your apology language?

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Just as there are love languages, there are also different “apology languages” that reflect how we express ourselves when we’re sorry.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Understanding your apology language, and that of your partner’s, can be a positive influence on your relationship and help you both reconcile after conflict.</span></p> <p><strong>What’s an apology language?</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Conflicts occur in every relationship to some degree, and reconciling with a loved one can be a tricky task.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Simply put, your apology language describes the way you express your regret or try to make amends with others. The term was first coined by Gary Chapman in his book with co-author Jennifer Thomas, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Five Languages of Apology</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> in 2008, who also penned </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Five Love Languages</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Our apology language of choice can often be traced to our upbringing.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“As children, we all learned subtly different ways to make and receive apologies when there’s been a breach in the relationship,” said Gretta Duleba, a Seattle-based therapist.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While some of us never learned how to apologise, others learned to emphasise remorse, reparations or empathy. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Knowing your personal style can help you educate your partner, cultivate more creative solutions, and change future behaviour in a way that allows the apology to aid in genuine repair,” said Louis Laves-Webb, an Austin-based therapist.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">According to Laves-Webb, there are several common styles of apology, including the following four.</span></p> <p><strong>1. Words of ownership: talking</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Unsurprisingly, this apology style relies on using words to acknowledge your past actions and how you’ll change your behaviour in the future.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As Laves-Webb says, “Words matter.”</span></p> <p><strong>2. Words of ownership: writing</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If you get flustered during high-pressure conversations, conveying apologies in written form might be your style.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Whether that involves writing a thoughtful email or leaving a nice note for the other person, this strategy can also be useful if you feel like tensions are still high.</span></p> <p><strong>3. Acts of service</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For some people, apologising through specific actions may be the best fit. But, if you think this is your apology language it’s important to be specific in the moves you make to show your regret.</span></p> <p><strong>4. Physical service</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Do you crave hugs or physical connection after a conflict to ask for forgiveness? Then your apology language is physical touch.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Physical closeness and physically bonding as a means of apologising can be reparative, soothing, and genuine,” Laves-Webb said. “When physical closeness is combined with true ownership and sincere apologetic sentiments, it can create a unique brand of apologising that not only acknowledges the hurt but simultaneously offers positive affirmation.”</span></p> <p><strong>What to do if you and your partner’s languages differ</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Once you have determined what your apology language is, it’s important to figure out what category your partner and other important people in your life fall into, and it can be as simple as asking them!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If you find your apology languages differ, doing your best to understand the other person’s language and ensuring they know yours is the best way to move forward.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Laves-Webb also suggests ditching the rule of treating others the way you want to be treated. Instead, you should treat others the way </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">they</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> would like to be treated.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Learning your partner’s apology language and making a concerted effort to ‘speak’ in their language can bring about better communication, openness, and emotional understanding,” he said.</span></p>

Bride dislocates her knee during first dance

"This is just theft": Bride's disgust over wedding act

Bride and groom shock guests with tall ask

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A bride and groom have been called out for asking their wedding guests to pay for their own food at the event.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">One disgruntled guest took to Reddit to ask if it was reasonable to refuse to pay for their own food at the upcoming wedding.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“It’s a close friend’s wedding in a few months time and everyone on the guestlist has been asked to pay $110/</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">£</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">80 (AUD $149) to cover the cost of their own meal instead of buying a wedding gift,” they wrote.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“It was worded in a way that very much made it sound like you would be taken off of the guest list if the money wasn’t sent through soon.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“If it were a small wedding and they were keeping costs low I feel like this would be more understandable, however, the bride and groom have spent thousands on their big day so it feels a little cheeky to me to expect everyone to cough up to attend their ‘special day.’</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I am not the only one to be feeling uncomfortable about this situation.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The guest went on to explain that both the bride and groom earn good money, and though it is “up to them how they want to spend” it, they feel the couple are showing a “lack of understanding about how much money their guests are already spending on attending this wedding”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Reddit users were less than impressed with the bride and groom’s decision.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“It’s unfortunate too many people have these huge weddings where they expect the guest to cover the costs. They could have had a less extravagant wedding if they couldn’t afford it,” one commented.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Something sounds off about the whole thing,” another said. “I definitely wouldn’t go - I’ve got a bad feeling about it from the list of bizarro things you’ve listed.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A third countered: “Asking guests to pay for their own meals is outrageously tacky and inappropriate, but there is absolutely nothing stopping you from politely saying, ‘I’m sorry, we cannot attend’.”</span></p>

Ben Fordham breaks down over family tragedy

<p><span>Ben Fordham had a hearty cry on 2GB on Thursday, while announcing the death of his father-in-law, Ross Spears.</span><br /><br /><span>“I wanted to share with you some personal news, and that is that my wife Jodie’s dad, Ross, passed away on Tuesday night,” the radio star revealed.</span><br /><br /><span>“Ross has been battling cancer for a number of years, it’s been really bad for a few months, and in the last few weeks he’s been in palliative care and he’s been looked after tremendously.</span><br /><br /><span>“He’s had the opportunity to say his goodbyes, we’ve all been in there to say goodbyes, including all of the grandchildren.”</span></p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7842300/new-projeben-fordhamct-1.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/4841c926cc7e44829fda2230d0187316" /><br /><br /><span>Fordham became even more emotional when recalling his wife, Channel 7 newsreader Jodie Speers, returning home on Tuesday afternoon after visiting her father.</span><br /><br /><span>“It was clear from the tears streaming down her face that he didn’t have long to go,” Fordham said.</span><br /><br /><span>“My children were amazing … my daughter, Pearl, ran up to Jodie and gave her a massive hug. My little girl, Goldie, who’s only a baby, she knew what was going on, she started saying ‘papa’ which is what they call him.”</span><br /><br /><span>Fordham described Ross as a “great bloke”, revealing his father-in-law was a structural engineer who worked on the infamous cauldron that malfunctioned at the Sydney Olympics.</span><br /><br /><span>“Ross always assured me that was not his part of the team, that was the mechanical part of the team and he reckons he knew all along that it was going to be a long shot for that thing to work,” Fordham said.</span><br /><br /><span>The 2GB host went on to say: “Ross, we love you mate, and thank you very much for being a great father in law to me.”</span><br /><br /><span>The sad news of Ross Speers’ death follows the death of Fordham's dad, John Fordham, in 2019.</span></p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7842301/new-projeben-fordhamct-2.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/35e71ba5927f449783c00208e1d1c40f" /><br /><br /><span>John died after a lengthy battle with throat cancer.</span><br /><br /><span>Speaking to Sky News last October, Fordham admitted he had learnt a lot from his father.</span><br /><br /><span>“The big lesson that I got out of dad, as far as his last few years, we were sitting down having lunch and he’d occasionally have these conversations where he’d say, ‘you don’t want to leave anything unsaid,’” Fordham said.</span><br /><br /><span>“He was always very open about how much he loved us, and how much respect he had for all of us.</span><br /><br /><span>“I said one day, ‘if you love us all that much, why don’t you fly us all to Hawaii for a holiday?’ “And he did. He flew the entire family.</span><br /><br /><span>“I look back on things like that and go, you know what, he didn’t die wondering. He took all those opportunities. He didn’t miss out on anything.”</span></p> <p><em>Images: Instagram</em></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A Queensland couple were given the chance to share one last moment together after 60 years of memories, thanks to the kind act of two paramedics.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Danny and Shirly Rowland had been living separately for almost two months, with Danny staying in their Torbanlea home on the Fraser Coast while Shirly received treatment in an aged care home.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Suffering from terminal cancer, Danny believed he would never see again or have a chance to say his final goodbyes.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“There wasn’t a day that went by that dad didn’t say, ‘gee I wish I could see mum’,” their daughter Karen Bellert told </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">7NEWS</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After complications occurred with the equipment used to treat him at home last week, Danny was taken to hospital by paramedics Samantha and Joshua.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When they learned of his wish to see Shirly again, Samantha and Joshua were determined to grant his wish.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After the equipment was fixed, the paramedics took a detour on the way back to Danny’s home to reunite the couple.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“The staff said we can’t let you come in, but we can bring mum out,” the couple’s son, Ricky Rowland, said.</span></p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 540px; min-width: 326px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned="" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ5UL21LzWV/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="13"> <div style="padding: 16px;"> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: row; align-items: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 50%; flex-grow: 0; height: 40px; margin-right: 14px; width: 40px;"></div> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: column; flex-grow: 1; justify-content: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; margin-bottom: 6px; width: 100px;"></div> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; width: 60px;"></div> </div> </div> <div style="padding: 19% 0;"></div> <div style="display: block; height: 50px; margin: 0 auto 12px; width: 50px;"></div> <div style="padding-top: 8px;"> <div style="color: #3897f0; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 550; line-height: 18px;">View this post on Instagram</div> </div> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;"><a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ5UL21LzWV/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Queensland Ambulance (@qldambulance)</a></p> </div> </blockquote> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“We had a beautiful moment for about 20 minutes where dad was able to say his final goodbyes to mum.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Danny passed away a few days later.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I really think dad was hanging in to say that last goodbye to mum, because not long after that he passed away,” Ricky Rowland said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rowland said his dad’s final words to his mum were, “oh well Shirl, I’ll see you later on. And if I don’t, just know that I’ll love you forever.”</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Image: Queensland Ambulance / Instagram</span></em></p>

Couple claim Gordon Ramsay ruined their wedding

<p><span>A UK couple has claimed Gordon Ramsay turned their dream beach wedding into “a complete kitchen nightmare”.</span><br /><br /><span>The celebrity chef took over a private resort to film his TV show, a decision that Charlie Willis, 35, and his then-bride Laura, 29 were left deeply horrified over.</span><br /><br /><span>The couple told The Sun that they expected a luxurious private ceremony and gourmet meal that put them $2390 out of pocket at the exclusive Lusty Glaze Beach venue in Cornwall back in June.</span><br /><br /><span>However, what was meant to be a day filled with love and joy, was anything but with the pair saying Ramsay and his crew who filmed his new TV show, Future Food Stars, “gatecrashed” their special day.</span><br /><br /><span>Despite the cost of $90-a-head for their guests, Charlie and Laura said their wedding party had a “cheap and nasty” meal.</span></p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7842255/gordon-ramsay-3.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/4f85fe6d90b84ee1816e6ca13c8c5c1d" /><br /><br /><span>“The whole thing was a complete kitchen nightmare,” the groom told the UK paper. “We had both worked so hard to save for that day and we felt like extras on a game show,” Willis said.</span><br /><br /><span>Ramsay’s executive producer, Sharon Powers, apologised to the newlyweds and paid for their ruined wedding.</span><br /><br /><span>“I am mortified that we affected your special day and I can assure you that it was never our intention to upset you or your guests,” Powers’ letter said, according to The Sun.</span><br /><br /><span>“As you are aware, we have now paid for your wedding in full, which I hope goes some way towards making amends and acknowledging how sorry I am that your special day was affected, albeit unintentionally, by us.”</span><br /><br /><span>A spokesman for the Lusty Glaze private beach acknowledged the “very unusual” circumstances but told The Sun that the wedding party had not secured exclusive use of the beach.</span><br /><br /><span>Ramsay’s spokesperson insisted to the Daily Mail that “there was no gate crashing”.</span><br /><br /><span>“Studio Ramsay [was] booked to film on the beach the same day as various weddings and events were taking place,” the spokesperson said.</span><br /><br /><span>“It’s a real shame this couple are still complaining. Their bill was generously covered, they happily chatted with Gordon on the day, they didn’t have exclusive use of the beach and all the other beachgoers had a really great time joining in on &amp; off camera.”</span></p>

Newly discovered Black Death victims treated with care

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When the Black Death swept through Europe during the 14th century it wiped out between 40-60 percent of the population.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Despite the traumatic death toll during the pandemic, archaeologists have found that victims of the disease were treated with “care and compassion”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A team from Cambridge University found evidence of individual burials continuing in Cambridge, as well as mass burials, which the team said “had been impossible to confirm until now”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Senior project officer Craig Cessford said it “shows that even in incredibly traumatic times during past pandemics, people tried very hard to bury the deceased with as much care as possible”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Since the disease killed people so quickly that there were no visible traces of it left on skeletons, archaeologists have been unable to identify whether individuals had died of plague unless they were buried in mass graves.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At least, that was the case until researchers from the After the Plague project identified the plague-causing pathogen called </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yersinia pestis</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">, which they found by studying the DNA from the teeth of medieval bodies.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The bodies studied were buried at a parish cemetery and friary in Cambridge, excavated in 2017, as well as those buried in the nearby deserted village of Clopton.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At least three plague victims were found buried in the chapter house of the friary.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mr Cessford said the “burials show that even during plague outbreaks, individual people were being buried with considerable care and attention”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mass graves of plague victims were also uncovered in Cambridge in St Bene’t’s churchyard.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The land was soon after transferred to Corpus Christi College, when the St Bene’t’s parish guild founded the college to commemorate victims of the Black Death.</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Image: Cambridge Archaeological Unit</span></em></p>

Wedding guests made to wash dishes in couple’s cost-saving efforts

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A wedding guest has shared the story of the nightmare wedding she attended, including the moment she was asked to wash dishes at the bride and groom’s reception in the couple’s effort to cut costs.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The American woman took to Reddit and said the bride - who she was related to - and groom had massively overspent on the wedding’s location and the bride’s dress and needed to make cutbacks on the rest of the wedding.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“The bride, a relative of mine, and groom, have gone all out, renting a gorgeous and expensive venue for their wedding,” the guest wrote in the post.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Beautiful ceremony, lovely pictures, etc. The buffet line and tables have been set up on the screened porch of the building.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Food looks great, I serve up my plate and go sit down. My boyfriend at the time, now my husband, has gone to the restroom.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Since the venue only had a few restrooms for guests to use, the guest’s partner took a while to return and be able to serve himself a plate.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“He then comes back with an empty plate. When I asked why, he says there’s no more food,” she explained.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I find the bride’s mum and whisper that she should probably ask the caterers to put out more food,” she continued.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“She gets a peculiar expression on her face and says there is no more food. What was on the buffet line is all that they have. Period.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To save money on food, the couple decided to “self cater” the event, with a family friend who was a chef volunteering to make the food.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Since the couple wanted the food to be opulent and include “good cuts of meat, artisan breads and cheeses”, they could only afford enough food for three quarters of their guests.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But the wedding was to become even more bizarre after the meal.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Dinner is over, we are starting the reception thing, when the maid of honour starts coming around and asking some of us to come with her into the kitchen. We go,” the guest said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“There is no air conditioning so this kitchen is about a zillion degrees. She shows us stacks of plates and cups and then tells us we need to wash them.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Apparently part of self-catering is you rent the dishes and glassware, and if they aren’t returned clean at the end of the evening you lose your deposit.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Since part of their cost-saving measures included foregoing the hiring of staff to clean up, the guest and nine others spent most of the night “elbow deep in soap and water”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“We miss the first dance and the cutting of the cake, which turns out to be for the best because (wait for it) they hadn’t purchased enough cake for everyone either.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Other users shared their disbelief, commenting on the “outrageous” behaviour of the newlywed couple.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“That is INSANE. Imagine inviting a bunch of folks then having the gall to tell them 1/4 of them will DELIBERATELY be left hungry. Including cake!” one said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Another wrote: “If anyone was to wash dishes, it should have been the bridal party, not the guests. Or the couple could have figured out how to hire someone, geez.”</span></p>

Man with Alzheimer's falls in love with wife all over again

<p>Peter and Lisa Marshall have a fairytale romance that Peter has unfortunately forgotten due to his early-onset Alzheimer's diagnosis at the age of 53.</p> <p>"It's heartbreaking," Lisa, 54, told CNN. "We've made new memories, but it hurts because I always want to say 'Remember that one time?' I want to reminisce with him, but Peter can't remember anything now, much less what happened 20 years ago."</p> <p>The pair have been married for 12 years and initially met as neighbours in Pennsylvania.</p> <p>"The way he loves me," she said. "He's so kind, so gentle, so flirty and fun and romantic. He's always been so passionate about our relationship. About me."</p> <p>Lisa realised something was wrong with her husband after he kept forgetting his keys and wallet.</p> <p>"It was my little secret to ignore until friends and family members started making comments, too, and then I knew it was something real," Lisa said. "People who hadn't seen Peter in a while immediately noticed something was wrong."</p> <p>"I didn't understand until I started researching and realized this was going to have a profound impact on our lives, and it was going to take my husband," Lisa said.</p> <p>Peter and Lisa were watching "New Girl" and a heartfelt wedding scene made Lisa cry. Peter noticed that and pointed to the screen, saying "Let's do it".</p> <p>"I was like, 'do what?' And he said, 'Let's get married,' with a huge grin on his face," Lisa said.</p> <p>"It's going to be a lot of work," he told her, not realizing that he had just proposed to his wife.</p> <p>"It was so touching to me. He fell in love with me twice. I feel honoured. I feel like a princess, like Cinderella. I'm the luckiest girl in the world," Lisa said.</p> <p>"I'm his favourite person," she said. "I don't need a label, like a wife, or nicknames he used to call me. Our hearts are connected in a way that all I need is for him to feel safe, and he does. And he loves me, and I love him, so that's all that matters."</p> <p><em>Photo credits: CNN</em></p>
