Finally Living Together
Mimi always loved the party scene, but at some point she felt God wanted her to make a change. She worried about finding a boyfriend who would respect these changes, until she met Victor. They decided to make the effort to date in a Christian way, surprising their friends with their choice of not living together during the 5 years they were dating. Today, they are a point of reference for those same friends. As they see it, going against this cultural trend made their wedding day especially meaningful.
"I'm happy because I paid for it"
Carlos and Marita have given their children everything they need... but not necessarily everything that they ask for. With fatherly and motherly pedagogy, they've shown their children how to be the protagaonists of their own happiness, teaching them to cover their own expenses, to know how to save, to not be carried away by the latest trends, etc. Living counter culturally has produced its fruits: their children take care of their possessions and are grateful for the brothers and sisters they have.
