English Girl Marries Indonesian Man, Wedding Photos Go Viral

Finding the right person to marry can be a challenge to many but there are those deemed so lucky for finding the man or woman of their dreams, someone they can share the rest of their life with as a married couple.

But there are those that society call luckier than most because despite being considered ‘simple’ or ordinary, they get to marry someone extraordinary! Of course, that’s a bit unfair to think about but society, sadly, has its standards for beauty – and people are judged according to their outward appearance.

A 26-year-old guy from Magelang, Indonesia recently went viral for marrying a 21-year-old woman from Manchester, England.

While many people might unfairly label Indonesian guy Karna Radheya, they are calling him one of the luckiest guys in the country for marrying a gorgeous young lady, Polly Alexandria Robinson.

The two had actually met in person back in August 2017, while Karna was working in Bali. It was love at first sight for the Karna who happens to be a certified surf instructor and the lovely tourist.

Polly went back to England but the two kept close correspondence, keeping their love alive despite the huge distance between them.As they began to talk about marriage, Polly decided to convert to Karna’s religion, Islam.

About 6 months before their wedding, Polly fully converted to Islam. She would later fly back to Indonesia where she and Karna got married in a simple but meaningful Muslim ceremony on December 16 at the groom’s hometown.

Polly’s family was unable to attend but the new couple reportedly had their blessing.

After the wedding, the two went back to Bali, the place where they first met. Karna owns a restaurant known as Luku Kitchen in Bali and also works as a certified surf instructor.

The couple shared photos of the wedding on social media but were surprised that the post went viral.

Karna hopes that their love would remain an inspirational tale for others. He also thanked netizens and well-wishers for the many beautiful comments they received for their marriage on social media.

Guy Honors Girlfriend Who Stayed with Him Through Difficult College Days

A guy honors his girlfriend who stayed with him through his difficult college days, supporting and encouraging him all the way. In return, he promised that she will be there in his success, now that he finally graduated from college.

Guy Honors Loyal Girlfriend

Danniel Tubal shares how much he loves his girlfriend, Mariatherese Palma, as she had been there for him through the most difficult times in his life. Though she’s the high school campus crush, she chose him – and she had been there for him right from the start.

While many guys would say that girls are really just after their money and would pick a rich man over a poor guy anytime, Mariatherese proved that she does not need his money. In fact, it is she who shares her money with him because she knows that he only has Php20 to spend the entire day.

Mariatherese would share her own allowance with him but would often slip the money inside his bag instead of giving it to him directly. Perhaps she didn’t want him to feel embarrassed, but she would wait until he is in school to message him about the money she put in his pocket.

The civil engineering graduate expressed his appreciation that his girlfriend’s lover never faltered, even if he did not have any money to treat her to fancy restaurants because all he could afford is kwek-kwek for their date.

She was with me even I cannot afford to buy her gifts on our anniversaries. She was with me when failed 3 subjects in midterm and almost lose hope. And I will make sure that SHE WILL BE WITH ME IN MY SUCCESS 🔥,” Danniel promised.

Congratulations on you both!
