There's something about love. The emotional fanfare of finding someone perfect is aspirational, and in spite of many comments to the contrary, plenty of us still seek out marriage as a confirmation of that commitment. And nowhere is this more highly scrutinized than in the marriage.
One couple went viral for their rather unusual marriage this week - and the internet doesn't know what to think...
Finding love is something most of us hope for.
But the searching can make it seem like it's basically an impossibility. It can be a jungle out there, folks!
Dating is no joke.
In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for "the one."
Looking for love can be exhausting.
But once you find it, for many of us, it really does make every part of life seem a little bit brighter.
Being in a happy relationship is many people's aim.
Finding the person who's a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.
Plus, PDAs are nice.
Having someone to hug and kiss (and who hugs and kisses you right back) is a pretty sweet feeling.
Some couples wish to take their commitment a step further.
Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.
Many of us have marriage in our life plan.
But for some, weddings aren't about romance.
One couple has gone viral this week for their unusual partnership.
With many finding it rather weird.
Rather than these two being a conventional couple ...
The pair are best friends who've decided to make a life together.
They call it a platonic marriage.
Or a life partnership for the 2 to raise children together.
Sure, it's out of the ordinary ...
But who's to say it couldn't work?
In fact, their marriage has divided the internet.
With people having very strong feelings about it...
Jay Guercio and her wife Krystle have defied the odds.
"My best friend and I, of eight years, got married, had a commitment ceremony, whatever you want to call it.We did this because we wanted to raise kids together, we wanted to live our lives by each other's side," Jay explained.
"I couldn't imagine living the life I live without her by my side, I trust her, I appreciate her, we work together, we are partners, we make decisions together, we act as a married couple does, but we don't have the romantic or physical stuff."
"We have complete freedom to seek out romantic or physical relationships, but to be honest that's not what I want or need right now."
Here's the video in which Jay explains her relationship.
