We met in a tuition class in Sri Lanka in 2002 (when we were doing GCE A/L). He says that he liked me from the first time he saw me and strangely I felt the same. He always tried to send messages through my friends to get them to tell me that he liked me and wanted to get to know me. But I was so scared to start a relationship at that age, so I pretended that I don’t like him for nearly two years but when we met at one of my friend’s birthday parties in May 2004 and confessed that I had liked him all this time but was too scared to start a relationship with him. He was so surprised but very happy!
So we embarked on a relationship and after one month we told our parents about us, and were delighted to hear that they were happy with the relationship.
Asanka moved to the US for to continue his studies in 2007 while I was still in Sri Lanka. He moved to the UK in 2009 and I joined him in 2010. Even though we were apart for more than 3 years we had a strong trust and connection between us and so our relationship was still thriving.
In Sri Lankan culture grooms do not commonly propose in a relationship, our parents are the ones who have to decide that it’s the right time to get married. Luckily ours did and so it was agreed!
There were two ceremonies, with the first taking place in Kandy, Sri Lanka on the 6th January 2011. There was another ceremony organised by the groom’s family on the 9th January, which was also in Kandy.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Gunarathne. BoC wishes you a Blessed Union.
