That was deep! Makes you think more about the good in life than the bad and makes you think not everything in life is bad. Sure there are some bad parts here and there but it will always get better even though it may take some time for it to happen.

I like this commercial because it reminds me that no matter how bad a fight can be at the end you can still end up forgiving each other.
Christine A, Illinois

This video is very touching, it reminds me of my parents. Not everything was ever perfect, they had fights, but their love overcame. Very personal and touching, I love it!

Wish this comercial would get played more often. I think more people that are married should pay more close attention to it. Too many people now days give up to quickly on thier marriage, marriage takes work and work pays off with the Good Stuff in the end!

I tear up whenever I see this commercial.

I love it but want to know what the words are in the first part while the bar tender is speaking. I can't make them out and it's driving me crazy!

I remember the words my sister, Micah, gave me. She says relationships aren't going to be easy but you make the best of the situation.
