The reminisce

The reminisce

One night, after tucking their kids into beds, the couple was recollecting the memories of their own wedding, 9 years ago and were trying to recall the gifts that meant the most to them.

The gift

The gift

They realized that the gift that meant the most to them was still lying in their closet, unopened.

Great Aunt Alison.

Great Aunt Alison.

She and her husband Brandon received this mysterious gift from her great aunt that forbade them to open it until their first altercation.

The tenacity.

The tenacity.

Though they had several disagreements and arguments over the time, they never opened the box.

The commitment.

The commitment.

In her own words, "I honestly think that we both avoided turning to the box, because it would have symbolized our failure. To us, it would have meant that we didn't have what it takes to make our marriage work – and we're both too stubborn and determined for that. So, it forced us to reassess situations. Was it really time to open the box? What if this isn't our worst fight? What if there's a worse one ahead of us and we don't have our box?"

The realization.

The realization.

One day though, they decided to open that box and a strange yet meaningful realization sank them into it. They had assumed that it would hold the key to some age old secret that could save their marriage and in a way it did.

A perfect relationship

A perfect relationship

Well, it made sure that they never gave up on each other. After all, isn't that what a perfect relationship is all about.

The tools within

She says, "I realized that the tools for creating and maintaining a strong, healthy marriage were never within that box – they were within us."


What a great way to make sure people never lose faith in each other. Respect for Great Aunt Alison.
