Ah, love. They say it makes you do some crazy things just to make the relationship work. Some people would even travel the world just to find and be with that person that they love. But what if you fall for someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you do?
Cultural differences – beliefs, language, etc. – could make or break a relationship. But one British woman and Italian man were determined to make things work and relied on Google translate.
Chloe Smith and Daniele Marisco first met at a nightclub in Ibiza. Not only could they barely hear one another above the music, but they also couldn’t speak a word of the same language.
But the 23-year-old woman from Wolves, UK, has Google translator to thank for helping her forge a relationship with the 25-year-old Italian man who made her experience love at first sight.
“There was something exciting about Daniele – the fact we couldn’t understand each other wasn’t a problem. We just clicked.
I made the first move and asked him for his number because I just found him so attractive.”
The pair were smitten with each other so much that they didn’t allow the language barrier to stop their connection. Chloe and Daniele used the translator to communicate, as well as watching videos with subtitles.
“Despite never having a foreign boyfriend before, I knew I liked him, and I knew he would learn one day. Sometimes you must do these things for love.”
A week later, they decided to go on holiday to Barcelona and now, two years on; they live together in Streatham in South London.
Chloe and Daniele have each learned to speak both Italian and English in a bid to ensure their relationship lasts.
“The more time we spent together, the less, we used the Google translator, and now it is once in a blue moon when Daniele doesn’t know the name of something in English.”
“Chloe talked and laughed a lot, but I didn’t understand. The only thing I understood was that she was special.
We wanted to be together from the moment we met, and that is why we worked. She helped me learn English, and I have helped her learn how to cook Italian food.
We have proved any doubters that we’re meant to be.
From the very start, I had a good feeling about Chloe. She is my soulmate.”
5 Million Indian Women Form 385-Mile Human Chain To Promote Equality
“Kerala has built a wall of resistance against the dark forces that wish to push women back to the dark ages.”
Women are doing whatever they can to promote equality around the world. On the first day of 2019, five million Indian women decided to make a powerful statement. They lined the streets to form a 385-mile human chain calling for gender equality and women's rights.
The human chain was formed in the state of Kerala in India. Five million women gathered on January 1, 2019, holding out their fists in solidarity with their sisters. The event brought in ladies of all ages, caste, and walks of life in an effort to promote equality. In addition to that, the Indian women called for the right to enter Kerala’s Sabarimala temple without having to worry about violence from male believers.
Female students lined up on the street to support the Women's Wall.
Student Who Struggled in Math Now Works as NASA Engineer
“I wasn’t going to give up because of a few bad grades.”
A journey of a thousand miles, as they say, begins with a single step and for some, that step may even be a small one. Take it from Josephine Santiago-Bond, a Filipina engineer who now works at NASA!
According to her, she didn't even have a specific dream in mind growing up. She was more practical than ambitious.
Woman Drops Over 200 Lbs. After Doctors Tell Her She’ll Never Be A Mother
She was determined “to live and be a mom no matter what.”
There’s nothing more devastating than being told that you are not capable of doing something that you’ve always wanted to do. Monet was determined to become a mother, but her doctors have told her that her health was so bad that she would never bear a child.
In September of 2014, Monet weighed just shy of 375 lbs. Being obese can harm a woman’s fertility by inhibiting normal ovulation. Even in women who regularly ovulate, the greater the BMI, the longer it appears to take to become pregnant. But Monet was determined “to live and be a mom no matter what.”
