This Woman Shared A Picture Of Her Abuelos Celebrating 51 Years Of Marriage And Some People Are Crying

If you grew up in a Latino household, you know more than most just how generous love can be. Maybe you saw your older hermanos perfecting their game or you took to heart the example that your parents’ love for each other had to show. Either way, you know well that Latino didn’t get the reputation of being a bunch of Don Juans for no reason. If you happened to have grown up with your abuelitos, you probably already know that love only gets better with age. If you won’t take our word for it, take a peek at these totally romantic tweets that remind us that love doesn’t grow old, it just grows stronger.

1. Celebrating 51 years of wedded bliss.

Twitter user @AzulSamantha recently shared a few simply adorable pictures of her grandparents on the social media site. Married 51 years, her abuelo was sure to remember the big occasion and treat his wife like the reyna she is. We can only hope to find this kind of love in our own lives.

2. It isn’t just our abuelitos who are teaching us about love.

Twitter / @RocioAndujo

Back in April 2019, this Twitter user shared a really romantic discovery. Her mom kept and pressed nearly every flower her dad gave her while they were dating. In the end, she wound up with a sentimental scrapbook that reflects the love the two of them have shared over the past 27 years.

3. A moment that will make you believe in love.

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make us believe in love. This Twitter user shared a sweet, little anecdote of a time when her grandfather made her feel that same way. When he peeped a picture of his wife on his granddaughter’s phone, this grandpop was quick to ask, “Well, who is that good looking chick.” We’re kinda swooning over here and we have to admit that grandpa’s got game.

4. We’re trying to be loved like this.

Love means taking care of the person most special to you. This tweet showed us just what sort of love we should be looking for. If something so small can be made so significant, it has to be true love. Do you have someone willing to do something like this for you? If you do, hold on to them because that’s hard to find.

5. Love is its own language.

Twitter / @itsbiankahaha

Do you want to hear a fairytale? Twitter user @itsbiankahaha tweeted this lovely story earlier this month. According to the tweet, her mom and dad met when they were teenagers. Her mom, a 15-year-old, had migrated to the US and only spoke Spanish. Her dad, a 17-year-old, was from the States and only spoke English. Despite the difference in language, the two were able to fall in love and have been together for 21 years. Now that’s what we call a love story.

6. Love is the memories we have of each other.

Twitter / @samille_otis

This Twitter user shared a scrapbook that her mother kept when she was dating her father. Mementos like pictures, receipts and letters make up the album and remain a reminder of how much the two have loved each other ever since the very beginning of their story.

7. Daily reminder that “Aloha” also means “love.”

Twitter / @melkmat_

Love only grows with time and this throwback pic is proof of that commitment. Ten years separate the first and second picture but these parents look every bit as in love now as they did in the first pic. As mom says in the tweet, their love has only gotten stronger.

8. We celebrate more than just wedding anniversaries in this house.

Twitter / @marialuna_

Anyone can remember a wedding anniversary but if you’re truly in love, you remember ALL of the anniversaries. This tweet introduced us to a couple who is celebrating 28 years since the dad first asked the mom to be his girlfriend. That’s some tooth-rotting fluff right there and we love it.

9. We celebrate a couple that can tease each other and laugh together.

Twitter / @samanthaaa_eli

Twitter user @samanthaaa_eli showed off the kind of playful love that her parents have. After her mom joked that her next husband will be a gringo so she can boss him around, her dad responded, “Cállate vieja, I’m trying to watch TV.” We can tell that the two play around with each other like this all the time. After all, a strong sense of humor is always important in a loving relationship. 

10. The meaning of one true love.

  Twitter / @Shermeen_here

Sometimes life gives us more than one love and we are given multiple chances to find the person we’re meant for. Still, some of us only have one true love. This tweet reminds us of that possibility and we’re definitely crying bittersweet tears over this one. Like the tweet says, once you’ve had the best, what’s the point of looking for better.

Everyone Has Thoughts And Concerns About Camila Cabello And Shawn Mendes’ Quarantine Walks

E News/ Twitter

There’s no denying that throughout their relationship, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have drawn in attention. Particularly when it comes to their behavior.

Need proof? Just remember that out-of-the-blue moment last year when the two felt compelled to show the world that they french “normally” after fans roasted them for when they “kissed like fish.” The two seemed to have a pretty great sense of humor about of course because they responded with a very strange make-out video.

Now the two singers and bf/ gf duo are raising eyebrows again amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.

The two were caught on a stroll in Miami, walking hand-in like zombies.

Walking as slowly as can be, the two were caught walking at a snail’s pace.

Fortunately, the couple is taking part in some much-needed self-quarantine for the sake of the public’s health and they are doing so in Miami. The two have been spotted taking long walks around Miami and have also been creatively productive. Recently they both performed alongside each other in Cabello’s home for iHeart Radio’s concert series.

Fans of Cabello and Mendes have been teasing the two for taking their sweet time on this walk.

In response to the walk, E! News tweeted, “Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s walk is as slow as the month of March feels.”

But who can really blame them?

We’re all pretty exhausted from all of the self-isolating.

Many are joking that Covid-19 has mutated into a zombie situation.

TBH it does feel kind of a lot like we’re in one.

Of course, people had some hilarious memes to roast these two with.

TBH their slow walk is pretty much all of us waiting to get out of quarantine.

Latinas Shared Their Best Bits Of Marriage Advice And The Comment Section Got REAL

Recently, a FIERCE reader posed a pretty poignant question on Twitter: “If you could give me advice on marriage, what would it be?”

Married folks and mujeres that were once married offered up their best bits of advice! Check them out below!

View marriage as a bonus not the piece to a missing puzzle.

My advice: don’t do it!! JUST KIDDING. my mom says, view marriage as an additional bonus to your life not as a completion . You’re an amazing complete woman on your own.” –pelucaazul

Beware the red flags.

“As someone going through a divorce: make a list of all the red flags (small and big) and play each one out and truly determine if any are problematic. The small red flags now always come back up later. Some can be worked on, some can be communicated through , but some are a sign of unsettled trauma/machismo/addictions/narcissism etc.”- _ashlyndarling

Keep up the dating game.

“Never stop dating each other!”-mariaelena34

If you’re getting advice about your life, get it from the right people.

“Its between you two!!! . Dont try to fit your relationship into stereotypical molds… what works for you may not be what other ppl say! Also, dont bad talk your boo even if you’re mad and frustrated. What you feed, grows. And always remember to flirt with your husband lik y’all still dating. And, if you turn to someone for advice, make sure they understand healthy marriages. Soooooo many ppl in the world giving advice but dont have a healthy successful marrige…. be open wi th your boo, be honest, nd hve fun! Best wishes&blessings – AH.”-autumnhype

Don’t compare yourself. It’s not a tit for tat game.

“Never compare yourself to other marriages or your parent’s marriage. Your marriage is whatever you want it to be and cultivate together, this is completely up to you and your spouse. This is the most freeing thing I have ever heard and made me appreciate my marriage more!”-cathrinemolstad

Don’t put up with behaviors or treatments within marriage that your instincts are telling you are wrong.

“Married 20 years and my best advice is to trust your instincts. In my marriage what has worked is respecting my partner and expecting that same level of respect, that reciprocity goes for kindness, compassion, patience, and forgiveness too. But, ultimately, this is big, don’t marry someone if your instincts are telling you it’s wrong, don’t put up with behaviors or treatments within marriage that your instincts are telling you are wrong, and don’t stay if those same instincts are telling you it’s wrong. You know you, what you want, need, can and can’t handle. That’s the voice to defer to – not your friends, society, or family. The union should bring you and the other person great personal growth. I realize that all sounds like a high bar and it is. People get and stay married, settling for far less than they should, because there is (or they perceive) external pressures to do so. Resist this. Marriage is not for everyone and not every partner is a commit your life partner. Finally, though, it’s 2020. Marriage isn’t irreversible. If it’s not working, that’s okay and don’t take it as a failure, but an awareness of your worth and growth.”-sheexistshere

Grow with each other.

“Grow with each other. Ive been with mine for 8 years (married 2). We started dating at 16 and 19, and man have times changed. If we didn’t make mistakes, keep each other accountable, help each other figure out what we each wanted to do, we won’t be together after all this time.” –danielaherreranyc

Communication is key

“Always communicate even if it sounds like something silly and always find time for each other no matter how busy your day can be.”-lauraelnasser
