Some love stories are a proof that when two people are meant to be together, they will eventually find a way. It is not about the number of chances that you give each other in love, it is about how badly you try to make it work despite all the hardships. We came across a cute love story on the page Humans of Bombay that is making us believe that love is about never giving up on the people you love.

Here's the real life account of a girl whose love story started 7 years ago.
"We had just broken up with our partners & met through a common friend. We started hanging out, I really enjoyed his company. We had this spot where we’d go & one day out of the blue, he asked me out. That first date we spoke about anything & everything!"
However, every love story comes with its own set of twists and turns. Only 15 days into the relationship, he broke up with her.
"He said ‘you’re way too good for me!’ We were from different worlds which could hinder our relationship"
But she was not one to give up so easily on the one she loved truly.
"I told him we were worth fighting for–finally he was convinced & decided to give this a real shot."
They loved each other's company despite how different they were as individuals.
"We went on road trips & also spent time at home. I loved being around him. I was in awe of him & loved his spontaneity because it contrasted with my need to plan."
Ten months later they confessed their love to each other.
"He said he loves me & I felt the same. I loved our dynamic–we spent a lot of time together, but still gave each other space. This was our own sanctuary."

But fate had something else in store for them.
"In 2014, I was in office when I got a call–he was having a heart attack. He was pronounced dead in the hospital–I saw him shut his eyes, a part of me was dying too. I prayed while they tried to revive him & I still count my lucky stars that they were able to get him back to me!"
During the recovery process, life hit them once again.
"I stayed with him through recovery & he says it made him fall in love with me all over again. But he started focusing more on work. Because of that our relationship took a hit. I started to lose faith & because he couldn’t give me enough time & decided to take a solo trip to Europe. I even broke up with him."
This time it was the guy's chance to have her back.
"He kept track of me & this time–he convinced me not to give up on us. He asked for one more chance & I gave it to him!
The couple is married for seven years now! All thanks to the faith they had in each other through all the hardships.
"It was about the chances that we gave each other. Everyone either says ‘give it a second chance’ or ‘third time’s a charm’ but for us, it’s not about the number of shots you get–it’s about how badly you want to make it work. That work is on you, the faith is on you–the power is with you. So if you really want it, you just cannot give up. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be standing here, looking adorable & able to share our story with you.”
The bittersweet story of this couple shows that when you are in a relationship then the efforts you put in it matters the most. Life may give you many second chances, but the onus is still on you. If you really want it to happen, you will, no matter what.
