Jiezhen & Jared:
"What I love most about Jared is the gentle way he loves, supports, and takes care of me.
He is my rock, my fiercest supporter, and the kindest and most giving soul.
He embraces my independent free spirit but also gives me, in his embrace, a warm and loving home to return to everyday.
He has shown me that we are stronger because we are together, and shows me what it means to choose to love every single day."

Mifuyu & Garret:
"Garret loves me unconditionally. He may not have much but he always gives me the best of what he has.
For example, he would tell me he didn’t like a particular dish just so that I could have the last serving!
Garret is down to earth while I am a dreamer. With him by my side, I will never need to worry about the future as I know he will always be there to support, advise and guide me.
Most importantly, his sincere care for my family has won over my trust and makes me happy that he is the partner for me."

Grace & Kent:
"For 8 years I didn't have any hope of getting attached or married until I found the love my life after 2012.
As the sole breadwinner and eldest in my family, I had to support two younger siblings and my mum. Life was not easy for me.
But after my marriage to Kent in 2015, my life has improved.
Kent is so giving and he provides me with unconditional love; it's really not easy to find someone like that.
He is also very hardworking and down to earth, and he never fails to take care of our family.
I thank him for being such a loving and supportive husband and I thank God for giving me the chance to experience true love through Kent."

Eereena & Kenneth:
"I first met my husband in secondary 1 but romance didn’t bloom between us till I was in the university and he signed on with the army.
Now we are happily married after over 10 years of friendship and 4 years of dating!
Kenneth is a kind, warm and gentle man who cares deeply for his family and mine.
Being with him always makes me feel safe and comfortable.
He is always there when I need him, physically or mentally; when he got deployed overseas due to work, I received messages and cards from him regularly!
I can go on about why I am willing to spend the rest of my life with him but I this quote from my favorite poet Lang Leav says it all:
"I was never one to believe in superheroes. I always thought they belonged solely within the pages of a book. Until the day one showed up in my life and changed my point of view."

Alyssa & Rethinam:
"If I had to sum up Rethinam in one line, it will be this. 'He is everything I am not'
I am an introvert, he is an extrovert.
I am a dreamer, he is a planner.
I am witty, he is stoic.
I am late, he is punctual.
It was these differences that drew me to him. He constantly showers me with love and warmth.
He even hand-made a gift for each month of our first year together and his small acts of random hugs and kisses were an added bonus.
Rethinam has always stood by me, never wavering and always making sure I knew he is my back.
Because of him, I can now face the future with optimism.
He is my number one supporter and I am extremely thankful he will be the one I will be marrying this year."

Alexandrea & Derek:
"Every morning, after I leave for work, he would write me a long message starting with something that he experienced with me that very morning.
For example, one morning l mentioned how well the ceramic knife sliced the apple and he would start his message: "To my dear sweet Cray that gushed about the wonders of a ceramic knife..."
He is incredibly observant to my needs and desires. I do not have to say what it is I want or how I feel.
He is not just a man of words but a man of action.
His surprises to me come in many forms. They range from buying me things like bags, shoes, a chocolate bar to folding the clothes, making the bed and cleaning the cat litter.
There was a time when we were in a long distance relationship and Derek surprised me by sending a video of himself right outside my block saying "Guess where I am? ".
He took a 7 hour flight down to Singapore to stay with me for an entire day before flying back to Japan for work. He was unable to get more leave days to stay longer.
I am writing this not to win this contest; I am doing this because I want him to know how much he means to me and how incredibly perfect he is."

Nicole & Nigel:
"Reasons why I love him:
He's the Yin to my Yang,
The calm after my storm.
He is worry-free whereas I'm anxiety-ridden.
He helped open my eyes and heart to the beauty of 'letting go'.
Nigel has a very calm demeanour - he is my complete opposite and yet he is where I want to be, what I want to be.
I've got a short temper and he knows exactly how to handle me with humour and love.
His silly antics always gets to me, in a good way and I love him so much for having such an awesome personality. I really got lucky."

Calynn & Derek:
"Derek is the most sincere, loving and patient man I know. He will go the distance to help people around him, and is always willing to give his time and effort genuinely.
He always considers my feelings and opinions first before making a decision. He respects me and does not insist on having his own way.
When it comes to differences, he seeks to understand more than to be understood.
I know he looks out for me, especially when I have had a lousy day. He will offer a listening ear, even if he had a long day of work as well.
At the end of the conversation, he would always end off with, “What can I do to make you feel better?”
I am assured of his love for me and he shows it through his actions."

Hui Ying & Poh Lin:
"My hubby, Poh Lin is the most patient man on earth. He puts me on the top of his priority list and care of my family like his own.
He always agrees to my crazy ideas even if they are out of his comfort zone - like our 'selfie' wedding photoshoot in Europe which we did entirely with a tripod and remote!
I have also become a better person after knowing him, especially when it comes to conflict resolution.
I used to walk away during a conflict, but he takes time and effort to understand the situation, my feelings and thoughts.
Now we are able to understand each other better after each better. I would say he knows me better than myself!"
