This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 50; the fiftieth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. In association with ​Soulmates: Love without ownership by Vinit K Bansal. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

When Lisa's groom did not turn up at the wedding, one of the guests, Asok, volunteered to marry her that date in January, in case she was willing.

Lisa said YES and Asok and Lisa were soon man and wife.

Years passed and Lisa and Asok celebrated many anniversaries and gathered fond memories during their journey together and nostalgia that lasted like a comfortable pair of Jeans...

On their 50th wedding anniversary- Golden Jubilee, people wondered how they kept their love for one another so fresh!

Lisa and Asok knew they were soulmates, who wished to make every moment of their relationship & their life special and bask in the golden glow forever, inspiring others too...
