Two people made a love connection – on Facebook? Facebook? It can be a wonderful place – and it can also be a pit.
Let’s be real: Facebook – heck, the internet – is unique in that on the one hand, it’s an online space where you can connect with people who are witty, charming, funny, and just plain ole fun.
On the other hand, Facebook is sometimes a very scary place filled with trolls spewing hateful, racist rhetoric, and just plain ole idiocy.
Yet, like anything else in life, it’s all in how you use and approach it.
Thankfully, in the face of all the negativity that seems to run rampant on Facebook and other internet spaces, you can still find wonder. And delight.
Sometimes, you can make a love connection.
They Made A Love Connection – On Facebook!
I’m happy to report that today’s featured couple, Ludovic Delaveau and his gorgeous wife Melissa Wallace-Delaveau, didn’t allow the less-than-stellar aspect of Facebook to derail them.
Instead, they found each other – and found love as a result!
Melissa tells their story in her own words:
“Hello everyone! I will try and make this as short as I possibly can because this has been a wonderful and blessed journey for me since 2011.
My husband and I met on Facebook in late June 2011. He is French and I am Jamaican.
He came to see me in my country in August of that same year and the rest is history. We got married in Jamaica in 2013.
In 2014 I moved from Jamaica to France (away from my family) to join my husband.
We now have a wonderful sweet, loving son named Tyler who is 10 months old. It wasn’t an easy journey for me but thank God we made it out safely.
I give thanks for being a Mom to a biracial child. Motherhood gets better with each passing day.
For me it’s not so much that our son is biracial, but rather I get to watch him grow up in two different cultures, two totally different worlds. He is getting the best of both sides.
My husband is the sweetest, loving, shy, humble, and all the other good words I can find. Lol! With all his flaws we love each other more than anything in this world.
One thing that keeps our marriage fresh and healthy is that we remind each other constantly how much love we have for each other.
And don’t get me wrong – we are not perfect by any means. Like every couple we have our flaws but we don’t argue or shout. We have calm discussions to solve our concerns.
We enjoy being married we love spending time with each other; travelling and exploring the world.
I’ll just leave it here for now because I could go on and on. God favors me. Blessing and lots of love to you all!”
Melissa’s parting advice?
“Love as if it’s your last time. Be patient – your Love will find you!”
