Now, the couple is going to Rome to have the honeymoon they never had when they got married.

Nate wrote on LinkedIn:

"After 44 years of marriage, my parents are finally taking their honeymoon this week. They met the day of their wedding (arranged marriage), during the climax of Africa’s longest civil war - Eritrea fighting for their independence from Ethiopia."

Nate says he hopes his parents have a good time during their honeymoon. He continued:

"Devoting their life to providing for me and my siblings, we can’t overstate our gratitude towards them. The core values they’ve taught us have served us well both personally and professionally. I’m hoping them the best time in Athens/Rome and I accredit much of my success to them."

Joya Cousin commented:

"Thanks so much for sharing this, Nate. Your parents are adorable together. The fact that arranged marriages are at least as long-lasting as those based on love goes to show that love isn’t about romantic dates and butterflies but a decision we make to honor and cherish our partner every day. Here’s wishing them a wonderful belated honeymoon!"
