There is no formula for a long lasting marriage. What may work for one couple may not work for others. Marriage is not just for a certain type of person or persons. The most unlikely twosome can have an everlasting relationship. This was the case of Tommy and Maryanne Pilling.
Both parties have Downs Syndrome, but this is a love story that can make a positive impact on many people.
The two met at a group center for individuals with disabilities. Their love was like the kind read about in story books. He knew that he had fallen in love with her, and so had she with him. Tommy wanted to marry Maryanne, but many, including their family, did not see this as a good idea. Tommy was adamant, so he wanted to buy Maryanne a ring, but had no money, so he got one from a vending machine.
Maryanne’s sister Lindi helped them with what they wanted to do. The family was joyous for the couple, and the marriage took place. That was 24 years ago.
Tommy and Maryanne Pilling celebrated their 24th anniversary as husband and wife. Not may marriages last that long, but theirs was a special love that only happens once in a lifetime.
The couple has become one of the most favorite in the world, and now have a Facebook page dedicated especially to them. People can find all of the updates on Tommy and Maryanne, and share in their special love. The two has had an undying respect for each other since the beginning of their romance. Their love was met with many oppositions at first, but now everyone can see proof of what real love is. It is easy for almost anyone to fall in love, but staying in love is a totally different factor.
