Not sure if this is called mature love.
Based on a true story.
They got into relationship, when they were 20yrs old and working in same company. She was scared to get committed because of guys she saw around her. She couldn't stop herself from saying yes, because of his charm. But, she asked him to convince his parents in next 6 months. He knows it was too early to convince his parents. He just completed his engineering and got a job. He is neither settled in career nor at the age to get married to talk to his parents. Still, he wants her at any cost, so he promised her that he will bring his parents to talk to her parents.
She left the company and started working in other company. No Phones were allowed inside. She was very pretty looking. They were many guys who tried to get her. Proposed her. Wanted to get into serious relationship with her. She denied every guy for sake of him.
He trusted her, she trusted him. There were days where they couldn't talk to each other for almost a week. Still they were madly in love. Finally, he gathered all his courage and spoke to his parents. He convinced them too. She was surprised. He brought his parents to her home. Her parents were invited to his house. Her parents were impressed by their family. Officially everything was settled. But, parents asked them to wait for few years as they're too young to get married.
She asked him to get promotions before they get married. He worked hard for his promotions. He couldn't talk to her for weeks. She understood and didn't disturb him at all. He got 3 promotions in one n half year. She distributed sweets in her office after she heard the good news of his promotion.
They got engaged and married. He cheated on her once, but, he could give her an exact reason for it. She didn't give up on him. She understood his situation. Stood by him.
He fell for her again, because of her understanding and love towards him. He did everything to make up their relationship better. She tried her best to come out that worst phase of her life. She struggled hard to over come that betrayel. They stood strong again.
He did everything to make her happy. She understood his efforts and excused him for one mistake he did. She said, ”Afterall he is a human, mistakes do happen. He had an option to leave me at every stage. But, he chose to be with me forever. So it's ok to excuse him once.’’
She had an option to leave him for what he did. But, she chose to be with him and she loves him more now. He loves her so much than before.
My uncle (dad's brother) and aunt had a typical arranged marriage 13 years ago. Both of them are very shy and reserved and didn't even communicate with each other properly for first few years after their marriage. I have never seen them indulge in any kind of PDA. My parents on the other hand had a love marriage 22 years ago. They believe in showering love on each other in public. My parents are still very much in love with each other. I always believed that love is what my parents had and thought that my uncle and aunt had a strained relationship.
The other day I sitting on the dining table doing nothing. My mom and aunt were in the kitchen busy preparing dinner. My mom smelled gas (LPG). Probably there was some leakage in the gas cylinder. My aunt turned off the gas and called my uncle to the kitchen. My mom left the kitchen for some other work she had. My uncle tried to fix the nozzle of the cylinder.
I was observing both of them without being obvious. After my uncle was done, my aunt starting moving the cylinder. My uncle stopped her and asked her to move aside as he had to light the stove and check if there was still any leekage. My aunt was not moving. My uncle was adamant. He wouldn't light the stove unless she had moved away so that in case of a minor accident she doesn't get hurt.
According to me mature love is not just about kissing or hugging each other in front of everyone. There is nothing wrong with PDA. I adore the relationship my parents have but I being an introvert person would like to have a relationship like my uncle and aunt.
