Long live love! The Mexican Adriana Fonseca, that actress with fantastic green eyes, just celebrated her eighth wedding anniversary with her husband Iker Calderón. The producer came into his life at a time when Adriana was totally closed to a relationship, disenchanted with love and about to move to Miami to record "Corazón Valiente". When she least loved him and least expected, the crush was born. Iker's hook? Her friendliness, her intelligence and yes … that she knew how to dance like Michael Jackson!
Their courtship took place in Miami, where Adriana recorded from Monday to Sunday. After some visits from Iker, after six months they understood that the distance would not work, and Iker decided to leave everything in Mexico to go live with her in Florida. "It was not easy" -said Adriana- "It was the first time that we both lived with someone else and adapting was very difficult". That they are still together eight years later indicates that the effort was worth it.
The two were married civilly after two attempts. The first time they were very neat, worthy of the solemn moment, and they found that the registry was closed. The second time, already more of a process and on Tuesday: "On Tuesday, do not marry or board," jokes Iker. And so, without photos or videos, they were married by a Nigerian who they barely understood because between her accent and theirs, they are still not quite sure what they said. The witnesses? As they did not have, they lent them a pair that wandered around nearby. By the way, they tell us that they did everything backwards: first there was the wedding, then the ring and then the request. Of course, they were original.
We asked Adriana what are the five tricks that work for a couple to last over time. Here are her clever tips:
1.- “The first thing is to love yourself. It is the first secret to be able to love another person. If you don't love yourself, you will have a much more difficult time.”
2.- “Communication is the most important thing. Listen carefully when they speak to us.”
3.- “Accept differences with love. Have patience, a LOT of patience and compassion when it comes to sharing our points of view about them”.
4.- "Appreciate, feel gratitude, focusing on the positive of the relationship."
5.- “Your relationship is not fastfood. If there is a problem breathe, stop before reacting and don't think about breaking without thinking about the solutions first.”
Thanks Adriana! Happy Anniversary!
