Keo Sokuntheary, 29, spent her first wedding anniversary with her large extended family. Both her family and her in-laws ate a celebratory dinner together.

But it was the next anniversary she remembers most fondly.

“It was just my husband and I,” she says. “It was not a big party because we didn’t have much money, but we just had a romantic dinner together. We shared our love for each other. And since we’re both very busy, we don’t have much time for meeting and talking with each other, which made it very special.”

She adds, “I think it was this day that we really began to fall in love. We talked about our past experiences and the problems we encountered as a young couple.”

Now, she says, she and her husband have two young children, which means they talk about their future as a family all the time.

 “Now we have two children that need our care and attention, so it’s normal for us to discuss what we are going to do next to give a bright future to our children and form a happy family.”
