”To have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy ordinance; and to it, I plight thee my troth.”
If you were to have a view of your entire life, every single element, even the littlest of details, what would you see?

We humans like to torture ourselves. So much that one of the main pillars of religions is self-torture. We hold on to senseless rules which only tortures us. We hold on, just cannot let go of customs that only hurts the ones around us and us. We torture ourselves while we are supposedly in search for happiness.
I did not think much about how life was going to be like before moving to Finland. Kati and I are highly compatible; our communication lines are wide open. Intellectually we are in harmony and so is our sense of humor. We have a very similar attitude towards life, and it did not matter that she was paralyzed.

It may not be clear to everyone; however, after any tragic event (accident, diagnosis of malicious sickness or a stroke in my case) everything changes. Not just the obvious, but even details you never thought about before. The smallest element can change a whole scenario. The tiniest incident can cause a domino effect that can turn everything around.
As most of the Finnish, we are Lutherans. Not extremely religious though. We would go to church on the special occasions, and our customs were founded around the churches beliefs. Spirituality was for me something more like an exotic thing. I always felt inclined towards it but never really practiced it.
