A Fairy Tale Love Affair?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Just what is a Fairy Tale Love Affair? At first glance you would think it was a perfect love between 2 people. Well, that is almost a good definition. No love affair is perfect. You have your ups and downs and things that need to be worked out. However, this can become hard to do when a component is missing from the relationship.

I was married to a woman from the Philippines for 9 years. She recently died of cancer. I have been talking to friends that we made over the years. They termed our relationship as being a Fairy Tale. I had to ask myself why this is termed as such.

When I look back over those 9 years of marriage, I can see how this is possible. She was a religious person. I was just starting to get into this aspect of my life because I needed to find out why my previous marriage of over 20 years didn't work out. My answers were in the bible. This brought me into the spiritual life.

Our relationship actually involved 2 physical persons and 1 spiritual. As our relationship went on, we both looked to Jesus Christ for all the answers we needed to make us work better together. We never fought. When there was a disagreement, we prayed over that disagreement and let Jesus help us work it out.

There was nothing that we could not do together. Everywhere we went, we both went. We looked for jobs that we could work together. We found this type of job managing an apartment complex. We took care of the grounds and made apartments ready for rental. There were all kinds of tenants there. We ended up ministering to a few of them about marriage and life in general. The children would come to us for advice and help. One little girl did manage to find her way into our hearts.

We liked to sing songs with Karaoke. We had a karaoke microphone and a PA system that we set up in the recreation room. We would sing and practice the songs. We were also Music Ministers at the church we attended. We tried different songs out to see if they were OK to sing in Church. Most were and we practiced them.

There were some Spanish people looking to start a Church. We let them use the Recreation room with the condition that we get to supply some of the music. This was a wonderful experience for us to beable to sing for someone else. There were 2 groups that came there. Both groups did move on and started their own churches.

We started a Bible Study group with the tenants. We planned the study and sang the music that would apply to the Bible Study. This was a good way to minister to the people there. This was something that my wife did when she was the Philippines. They would get together at different houses and do a Bible Study and eat. I even sent music to her house so that they had music to go along with the study.

Everywhere she went, she smiled, laughed, talked and acted like Jesus would. No matter what she did, there was not a frown that would come to her, no matter how bad things would be. Her faith as with Jesus Christ. She left her entire life to Him so that it was handled properly. This was catchy because I started to do this as well. You know? I have never felt so good when I did that. I had no problems, I was able to concentrate on my hobbies and take care of her. My goal was to see to it she had everything she wanted. I prayed so that those ways of being able to give her everything she wanted would come true. Jesus did this for me as well. He also saw to it that she was provided for through me.

I considered my wife as an angel. One who's beauty radiated outwards to people, when you looked at her, you could not take your eyes off of her, you became relaxed and very happy that her beauty was with you.

That's a wonderful story. And I am sorry for your lost. I am married too and would consider mine as a 'fairy tale marriage' against all odds. We are from opposite sides of the world. I wrote about how I met my husband here too. My husband and I share a bond that is special and he's my rock. Everything you mentioned tells me that you both were truly soulmates. Thanks for sharing and take good care.
