Couple Divorced After Over 20 Years Of Marriage Gets Second Shot At Love

Love is definitely sweeter the second time around for this divorced couple.

Some people spend a lifetime to find that soul fated for them to love. Some others feel love earlier in their lives, but after some time, the fire cools down or there’s the realization that they’re with the wrong person. This often results in separation and divorce.

This is what happened to the parents of Jeffrey Agan who, after over 20 years of marriage, got a divorce. They fought hard to make their relationship last for the sake of Jeffrey, but even their desire to have an intact family wasn’t just enough to keep them together.

Life can bring challenges for couples but love will always find its way to reunite those who are destined to be together.

But when two people are really meant to spend the rest of their lives together, no matter how much time separates them, fate will always find a way to bring them back together. And this was how it was for the couple.

Jeffrey’s parents found their way back to love. Despite the bitter end and the tough times of trying to get along to co-parent their son, the couple managed to build a connection that they could say was stronger than the first time they entered a relationship together.

Apparently, even divorce can’t keep people truly in love apart.

The reunited lovers initially focused on improving themselves, which they never thought would be a way to also improve their relationship. The two started dating again, and it was this time that Jeffrey’s dad realized that his ex-wife was actually the only woman for him.

So to not let her get away twice, Jeffrey’s dad staged a surprise proposal that went down last Christmas, and the moment was too magical it brought everyone to tears. The romantic event was recorded on video by Jeffrey and was shared to make others see that true love does exist, even for those who came from failed marriages.

Jeffrey recounted the special moment, captioning the video, saying:

“My parents were married for more than 20 years, divorced, fought a lot, went to work on themselves. Years later, they start dating and as of yesterday, this happened. Congrats Mom and Dad! True love always finds its way back around.”

In the video, Jeffrey’s mom, Lori, was handed a large box she actually thought was pizza. Looking confused, she opened the gift to find a framed image that holds a note that will change her status in the next couple of days. She read:

“Love burns a new. Our love was there it never left though both of us felt lost. Fate intervened for me and you and our love caught fire and burns a new. So now, I ask you Lori once again…”

Identical Mom and Daughter Bash Car Festival for Banning Bikini Contest and Strip Shows

They’re “very disappointed” that Summernats car festival has become family-friendly this year.

Ever heard of Summernats? In case you haven't, well its an annual car festival that's being held in Canberra, Australia since 1987. It's actually the biggest of its kind and car enthusiasts in the country look forward to the event every year.

It has, however, made a name for itself as one of the most controversial shows due to reports of violence and allegations of sexual harassment involving some of the generally-male spectators. Now the organizers are hoping to change that after promoting the 2018 event as more family-friendly. For this year, they've banned bikini competitions and strip shows.

And not everyone is happy about it. In fact, some have criticized the festival for the move.

Art Teacher Fired After Showing Famous N**e Paintings To Students

“I explained to the whole class that art can sometimes show images that are not always comfortable to all.”

A teacher in a Utah elementary school was fired amid complaints from parents that their fifth and sixth-grade children saw images of classical paintings containing nudity. The postcards containing the “explicit” subjects were reportedly passed out in their classroom. However, Mateo Rueda denied the allegations, saying he wasn’t aware that the set of educational postcards from the school library contained nudity.

The Lincoln Elementary School in Cache Valley, Utah reportedly fired the art teacher after claiming that students became uncomfortable with seeing nude images from postcards used in their study. Rueda said he sent his fifth and sixth grade students to the school library to look through art books and postcards for their color study exercise. However, the young kids ended up browsing through portrait Iris Tree by Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani and the Odalisque by 18th-century artist Francois Boucher which contain a few nudity.

Utah teacher Mateo Rueda fired for allegedly showing kids in his class some postcards with nudity.

Apparently, the postcards were already in the school library even before he started teaching, saying he was also surprised that such images are kept there. He also said that he took some of the nude pictures back and removed paintings he said were inappropriate for his students to see. Yet, he reportedly explained to the kids that nudity is actually normal in arts....
