22 Years Later, Haters Might Regret Their Every Word Love has no boundaries. It transcends so many things and every human
being on this planet has the right to love and be loved. In July 1995 Maryanne and Tommy Pilling, who
both have Down syndrome, took the groundbreaking step of getting married. You would think this would have been met with
praise and joy. But the couple faced a backlash of naysayers
who didn’t think they would last and disagreed with their relationship. Looks like Maryanne and Tommy will have the
last laugh. It’s been 22 years and they are still together
and happier than ever. Despite all the haters, their love story has
amazed and inspired thousands worldwide. It wasn’t always easy for these two lovebirds. Maryanna 46, and Tommy, 59, both from Essex,
England, faced countless challenges. Both have experienced cruelty of prejudice
from bigoted people due to their condition. Despite these obstacles, they found love in
each other. They met at a training center for people with
learning difficulties and it was love at first sight. “The day Maryanne met Tommy, she came home
with the biggest smile on her face,” Maryanne’s sister Lindi tells the Daily Mail. “She couldn’t stop talking about him and
asked if he could come for dinner.” 18 months after they started dating, Tommy
was certain she was the one for him. He firmly decided that he wanted to make Maryanne
his wife. But he wouldn’t go through with it until
her mother agreed. Although hesitant at first, Maryanne’s mother
and the rest of her family ultimately gave the couple their blessings. They were hesitant, in part because of all
of the criticism and negative reaction from people in their local community. People thought the idea was absurd and that
the union wouldn’t last. But nothing could stop the love these two
had for one another. “My wedding was the best day of my life,”
Maryanne told the Express. “I was shocked when Tommy proposed, but
I didn’t have to think twice about saying yes.” In July 1995, in front of their family and
friends in a beautiful church in Essex, Maryanne and Tommy made their vows. They got their dream wedding. Maryanne’s mother accompanied Tommy to buy
the ring to make sure it was perfect. “When they walk down the street holding
hands they make a statement, but in a good way,” sister Lindi tells People. “Some people stare — they assume people
with Down Syndrome and learning difficulties can’t get married.” The sister launched a Facebook page to follow
their love story. “We get so many lovely messages from people
who are inspired by their story,” Lindi says. “People worried about their own children
or grandchildren with Down Syndrome get hope from Maryanne and Tommy’s story.” “Their relationship is so special because
it is pure — they don’t understand bad emotions of hate,” she adds. “I hope that their children can also fall
in love and live happily ever after.” When you look at the pictures from their wedding
as well as what they look like today, it isn’t hard to see the love and happniess these two
have for each other. Tommy and Maryanne’s story truly proves
that love can overcome any obstacle. Some doubted their love and marriage just
because they have Down syndrome, but the longetivity of their love proves the haters wrong. Please consider sharing this incredible love
