Today, I am going to talk about my grandparents because I think they are one of the happiest couples I have ever seen in my life. They have been married for last 40-50 years now. Both of them complement each other and they really look good as a couple. My grandfather is tall and handsome, whereas my grandmother is a beautiful attractive lady. They are both very poised and I have hardly seem them fighting or shouting at each other. Both of them are retired from their respective jobs. My grandfather was an engineer and grandmother a principal. They have faced their share of ups and downs in life but been together throughout and kept calm. They understand each other completely even though they have different personality traits, still they get along very well. They are like two best friends sharing and caring for each other. My grandfather is an extrovert whereas my grandmother is a quiet lady, who often loves to read and cook. He is always surrounded by people, be it his friends, neighbors and family members. Moreover, I have not seen them complaining about each other but what I have observes is that they, try to cover up each other’s mistakes and together they have raised a happy and a well educated family.
