This #weddingwednesday we are sharing the story of Quinton and Togi Barela who wed on February 14, 1954.😍👇🏻⁠
"The Barelas urge all couples to 'come to their senses.' But for them the advice isn't what it seems at face value. Quinton and Togi, who were married in Hawaii on Valentine's Day, find it odd that many men and women don't use all their senses in their married life. 'You don't necessarily need to hear words to understand what your spouse is thinking or feeling.' Quinton says. 'In fact, you shouldn't rely just on words.'⁠
The Barelas have become experts in picking up on non verbal cues--a knowing smile, a downcast face, a sluggish gait, a sense of tension or apprehension in the room. A clinging hug that says 'I really need your support and love right now!' A slight quake in one's voice, a cue that says 'I'm trying to hold it together, but I'm hurt and scared.' Quinton and Togi know that when it comes to understanding your spouse and responding to his or her needs, whats not said is more significant than what IS said. And, similarly, sometimes the context of a sentence or two outshines the words.⁠
'Words are fine,' Togi says, 'but when you are truly tuned int your partner, you'll find that quite often you don't even need words to understand each other.'"⁠
