1.Describe a couple you know who have a happy marriage


Well, I would like to talk about my own parents whose marriage is undoubtedly a happy one. They have
been married for 30 years now and are the perfect couple in my eyes.

Well, my mother and father are now in their 60’s and they are still really busy with their nine to five jobs in a
government office, but I think that both of them are going to retire later this year. During 30 years of
marriage, my parents have been through thick and thin together but have never lost their love for each
other. My parents usually just show their affection simply by always being honest with each other and
sharing their true feelings. Their mutual understanding for each other is so profound that sometimes it only
takes one look to realise what the other is thinking.

Of course they still have minor tiffs every now and then, you know, things like who will have to pick up the
kids or who gets the TV remote. However, my dad is always the first one to give in and turn to comfort my
mother. I think that little action is actually the key to my parents’ long lasting relationship.

To me, mom and dad are a perfect match and I admire their love for each other so much. Hopefully, in the
future, I will have a partner that cares for me as much as my parents care for each other.
