When we feel that we are ready to take the ‘next step’ with someone we love, it means fully committing to that person forever, especially during rough times and difficulties. Tying the knot means having someone in our life who would be there to support us no matter what, someone who would always take our side, someone who would like and hate the same things as we do, and for the same reasons. Marriage is sacred and lucky are those who have chosen to spend their life with the right person.
Unfortunately, nowadays many couples reach for divorce even after the first obstacle they come across, but that only means they didn’t understand the true meaning of marriage.
On the other hand, there are couples like Jon and Marci Newman whose relationship and commitment to one another is something beyond beautiful and inspiring. This is their story.
It all started when Marci learned that she had thyroid cancer. Her life turned upside down, and everyone around her was affected by her condition. She had to undergo radiation treatments that required from her to be isolated in her room. Her husband, however, couldn’t imagine spending his days without her so he did something truly amazing that made his daughter Mackenna so touched that she shared it with everyone.
Both Mackenna and her mother Marci are truly lucky to have a person like their father and husband in their life.
He really wanted to be by his wife’s side during her tough times, so he found a way to support her without being exposed to the radiation.
“My mom has to stay in her room in isolation for her cancer radiation so my dad set up a desk at her door to keep her company and I’m crying,” Mackenna wrote on Twitter.
Once Mackenna uploaded the photo, many people shared it with their friends.
This wasn’t the first time for Jon to be doing this, actually he sits outside Marci’s room the whole time. Marci says her husband is a loving person who supports her all along.
“Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation. And as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get,” Marci told The Independent.
We really hope there are more people like Jon out there who never leave their spouse’s side no matter how difficult life gets. These two are an example of what a marriage should be all about, and that’s love, devotion and never giving up.
Our prayers are with Marci.
