He added, “What we do share—and has proven to be even more sustaining—is our laissez-faire outlook on life, easy laughs together, willingness to be ridiculous and silly with each other, unflinching acceptance of one another’s imperfections, and many other qualities that make me so happy to have spent these past 10+ years with this woman whom I love more than anything”.
Eugene concluded, “And when we, once in a blue moon, happen to agree on a show or movie to watch it feels like falling in love for the first time every time. To the next 10+”.
