For this Valentine’s Day week, we’re sharing the story of Hao and Edelma, a Taiwan-Nicaragua couple.
During an interview with Taiwan’s FTVNews, the couple was asked these questions.
What’s the first thing that came into your mind when you first met her?
Hao: The first time I saw Edelma, my heart nearly stopped. I was deployed in Nicaragua for training and I never knew I could meet the love of my life in a faraway place. Using my limited Spanish, we exchanged numbers and talked consistently during my time there.
Edelma was in college at the time and everything felt right when I’m with her so within about 8 months of dating, I asked her father for his blessings. Fortunately he was cool with it and since then, we started a family back in Taiwan.
How is she coping in Taiwan?
Edelma: I love living in Taiwan. I love the people, the culture, the food. I wish my husband could come home every day though.
Hao: She initially thought that I can be home every day. As a soldier, it’s typical for me to be home only during the weekends.
