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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.
