The Vow

photo not mine
I have downloaded “The Vow” last month but had not seen it until last night. Yep! I stayed up late last night watching the movie on my laptop.

The Vow is a movie about a newlywed who met a car accident. The wife (Paige) had been in coma and when she woke up she forgot about her recent memories. Making his husband (Leo) a complete stranger because she forgot everything they had including their love and marriage. 

Because of his love, Leo is determined to win back Paige by courting her again just like the first time he did. Days passed by without Paige regaining even a single memory about them she decided to stay with her parents, and Leo had to sign a divorce paper.  

When Paige run with her friend and learned about why she left home before, she decided to live on her own and try to discover the life she had forgotten. Eventually she found Leo again after she read the marriage vow she wrote on the menu card of their favorite café. 

This love story had really touched me after knowing that this is based on a true event. I can't imagine the obstacles they had gone through, how patience, determination and love the husband had for his wife.

The story tells us that true love will find its way back to where it should really belong.

Here's some of the lines from the movie...

I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.

I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love.
