Not going to lie,... I’m a little jealous of the looks and the love. Well done to them.

Having had the front row seats, I've learned three things

  1. hold hands all the time

  2. go on date nights. And hold hands.

  3. call each other a pet name ("lub"). Which is hilarious when you're fighting. It's all so passive aggressive.

Well, they look absolutely 'lub'ly :)

Original Poster37 points · 6 months ago

You're awesome ❤️

But they are not holding hands in this picture?

Something's wrong! I suggest councelling, just $300/h.



Original Poster2 points · 5 months ago

I promise, there were LOTS of handholding and even smooching in other pictures!

pics or didn't happen, jk, you can keep those to yourself!

My fiancé and I call each other lub! More frequently, “mah lubs” Ours stemmed from saying “my love”

They seem like a beautiful couple... happy to have this in common!

You’re an idiot kickulus

Your dads face though

Original Poster187 points · 6 months ago

That is the smile of a man who knows he wins at life.

Where are they from? Your dad would look a lot better driving my Datsun than I do

Original Poster91 points · 6 months ago

Philippines. My dad is chinese-filipino, and he's a BMW kind of dude.

He deserves an 850i

Original Poster29 points · 6 months ago

You're awesome 😊

Hey fellow Pinoy! Is this Manila Bay?

Original Poster14 points · 6 months ago

Yes!!! They threw their party at the Sofitel

Hell yeah it is

No need, leave it as it is

Need to get rid of the cube in the sky though

6 points · 6 months ago

Yea ok I'll accept that

. And straighten the wonky plant pots?

3 points · 6 months ago

There comes a point where the picture isn't real anymore

Like the posing, but the sky needs more detail or it should be cropped out (or given less priority)

Sky looks completely burnt out, which makes the framing very strange.

Wow, your mom looks breathtaking. Her dress and the way her hair is done. I Love the look of older women who embrace their silver\ white hair.

Original Poster253 points · 6 months ago

She'd be thrilled to read this reply! We've been having fun with her hair. If you look closely, you can see a bit of pink in it 😊. My (step) dad also looks dapper AF. Good job Pops!

Your dad looks great as well. They are a really beautiful couple

My own mother when full salt and pepper really early (27 if my memory serves. Just after my brother was born). She hated it for a long long time but now has chosen to embrace it.

She also does the fun accent bits of bright colours. Pink and purple are most common. Was a little disappointed when we announced our first born was a boy, half expected her to dye a small area blue in honour.

Tell her that i am in love with her hair 😀

I’m still not convinced they aren’t models. Quite a professional picture!

Generally just people owning how they look is infinitely sexier than mangling your head with unnecessary shite.

Gotta ask...what's with the UFO in the middle of the sky?

Original Poster40 points · 6 months ago

Not sure to be honest. Now that you've pointed it out, I can't stop looking at it to figure it out.

It's a Borg cube, when was this photo taken? Trying to figure out how much time we have

Original Poster22 points · 6 months ago

cackling. Resistance is futile.

2 points · 6 months ago

My guess is one of those floating paper candle things?

... Because I'm racist?

I thought it was something on my phone screen for a minute.

It's just the green pixel from the Construction icon.

6 points · 6 months ago · edited 6 months ago

Yeah - edit this out!

Really really cool photo though.

Edit: just a super fast phone edit

Crop it, there's nothing in the sky that needs to be there, it's just empty burnt out space

1,000 percent agree!!

A UFO probably

Original Poster51 points · 6 months ago

I need to dig out their first wedding photo (justice of the peace). It's so painfully mid-80s. Shoulder pads everywhere!

My parents got married in the '70s, god help 'em. There was one dude at the wedding...I bet they thought he was a total square. He wore a suit that would probably look a little old fashioned today, but would pass anywhere because it was a classic look, and he had close-cut, neatly trimmed hair.

If any of his kids looked at my parents wedding pictures, they would be the only people who ever looked at those pictures and said, "Damn, dad was a snappy dresser."

I don’t know why this reminds me of r/blackmirror

Great photo! The blurred out spot above them in the sky bugs me though, so i edited it out. Here you go! :)

Original Poster10 points · 6 months ago

You're a rockstar. Thank you!

If I had the skills I would straighten up those plant pots on the right, just took my focus away from the centre.

like This?

Dad: Haha, she still loves me after 35 years! I'm awesome! Mum: 35 years! Why? I could have sailed the open seas as a pirate! Climbed in the rigging! Owned a parrot!

Yup, they both look awesome.

Original Poster23 points · 6 months ago

Mom would have been an awesome pirate captain. Her ship would have been the cleanest, and most organized. And rather than using guns and cannons, she would have just charmed her way into convincing the victims to giver her all their gold and jewels.

2 points · 6 months ago

Basically, a clean, sober and female Jack Sparrow, then. :-)

Good Lord, they’re both stunning. We celebrated our 35th anniversary last year and looked like a couple of worn out old shoes. Emphasis on old. Congratulations to them!

Username checks out.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Lol. I'm sure you guys look way better than you think. Congratulations!

Gorgeous couple and setting. Your mom's hair and outfit are beautiful; her necklace is stunning

I wish i could touch and feel them

A handsome and obviously loving couple, thanks so much OP for sharing such an inspiring portrait of marriage with us ❤️ your mother is stunning! 😍

They are aging REALLY well!

Original Poster15 points · 6 months ago

Pretty good for 60-somethings, right?

Perfectly regal. Your dad looks like a fun guy with his sly smile.

Great pictures angle and everything. They remind me of my folks ...

They are a very attractive couple! What is best is the calm, relaxed happiness and self-confidence that they project, both individually and as a couple. Were they as good looking when they were young, or improve with age? And, if not intrusive, what became of your biological father? Just curious.

Original Poster3 points · 5 months ago

Pops got better looking as he aged...and finally allowed us to pick his haircut. He rocked the Jackie Chan/Bruce Lee modified Asian bowl cut for decades. It was hilarible.

Mom was always pretty, but now that she's grown out her eyebrows (she has that 70's pencil thin look), I think she looks amazing. But she won't go for microblading...yet.

Is she single??

Original Poster14 points · 6 months ago

I hate to tell you, but you JUST missed out.

Imma wait for dad to pass and then hit her up

Crazy good looking couple! Your mom is so glamorous and your dad reminds me a little of Obama - classy-looking gent!

Your mum looks amazing, so glamorous! Her hair is especially stunning.

Great Couple. Looks like location is Singapore marina bay. Nice make over

haha thats pretty cool to be honest. Clean photo I love it!

They're adorable!

Look how love keeps you beautiful.

Dad is suave as fuck

That’s a dapper dude

Idk if answered but where’s this at?

I like the depth in this picture, just amazing.

Your mom is absolutely stunning!

This photo is really cute! Congratulations to them :)

2 points · 6 months ago

That's actually a great photo! Who's the photographer?

2 points · 6 months ago

Dont know if you noticed but there is a square shaped UFO in the sky

That feeling when you realize some people have been together longer than you've been alive.

No offense, but judging by the comment I'm guessing your parents aren't together anymore? Because y'know... They would have been too

love that your mom is chilling and looking so damn elegant and dad has that smirk of yeah... that's right... she's with me

OP where is this? The background is amazing as well as the people

10 out of 10, would put on a magazine cover.

I don’t know the context, but how relaxed they both look makes this seem like they hired a photographer that REALLY knew what he was doing. Great photo.

Beautiful shot! My friend just proposed 15 feet from that spot. Will show this to him for inspiration

Original Poster2 points · 6 months ago

Congratulations to your friends!!! Highly recommend Sofitel. And if they need a coordinator or photographer/videographer, let me know!

Amazing picture! I'd totally blow it up and put it on the wall if I were them.

Please give them my congratulations - both for all the years and for making it look fun to get there!

So cool pic! Nice job!

This is probably the most beautiful picture I have ever seen in my life. Truly a picture worth a thousand words! Magnificent being one of them!

They look like soap opera stars!

Your dad looks like he’s about to come steal my girl

That's not fair, they're azn. That's like the black of aging. If my Mexican parents were trying for the same there would be alot more slouching and the pics would be ruined when my mom would get up to yell at you that you're doing it wrong.


They look so cool!

Gorgeous couple!

That's a handsome couple.

Hmm...he looks like an actor I’ve seen before. Not sure who though.

Edit: Oops

Yeong-cheol Kim?

Dad: cool middle-aged man. Happy af with a nice family and wife.

Mom: Chill as one can be!

Great photo.... Sky needs cropping though

Original Poster2 points · 6 months ago

Yeah, this is straight from the camera - I'm sure the final photos will be cropped and cleaned up.

Look forward to seeing it

That’s awesome! And they look amazing :3

I need to dig out photos when she first started to turn grey - by the time she was 40, the front part of her head/bangs were snow white and everything else was black. It was gorgeous.

Am praying I get that same kind of color pattern.

Your parents are almost as cute as your cats.

Is that a UFO?

What's with the UFO above them.

Congratulations to both of them.

This is so beautiful


Your mom is very beautiful.

Congratulations, but they're kids. Mine are closing in on their 60th.

That is amazing.

Silver foxes, both of them.

Does your Mom frequently grumble about "E-Corp" and ask what time it is?


very Romantic

How long does it take for that pill to work?

Amazing Couple

It looks like there’s a lime about to hit her in the head.

Yyyaaaasss. Man I feel like a peasant now

shut up nerd

Best wish for them. They look so cool!

Well, based on how wonderful your parents look, no wonder you were born in the first place.

I wish them another 35, and for you OP, another 100.

Have a nice day.

Thank you so much. He's not my bio dad, but he's my REAL dad.

(Too bad he's not my bio dad, maybe I would have been a little bit taller, 😂😂😂)

That’s baller af.

OP please stop the annexation of Congo! You're the only one we can reach out. Btw, ms Whiterose looks fabulous

Original Poster1 point · 6 months ago

I do not understand that reference 😩

As an amateur photographer, I think this photo is amazing. The pose, the story, it's all like a fairy tale. I'd love to see the final edited version, could go lots of directions and make this photo pop. That's what happens when you start with a great base.
