"No such thing as a 'perfect marriage.' For me, it's always been simple: commitment. Every morning I wake up committed, and pray that she chooses the same. And so today, again, I choose my beautiful bride. To have and to hold. Till death do us part. #HappyValentinesDay sweet girl!"
Chip's post has since received over 35,000 likes and over 3,000 retweets as of this writing. Other Twitter users agreed that marriage is about commitment.
"So true, there is no perfect marriage. My husband and I say marriage is a commitment you decide to make every day. It has worked for us for almost 30 years now," one user wrote.
"So true! I don't understand why people think relationships and marriages are perfect or supposed to be. There's no such thing, it's all about commitment and compromising. I love this! Made me tear up ️ Happy Valentine's Day to the both of you," said another user.
Meanwhile, others compliment Chip for being a real man by expressing his true feelings for Joanna. Others also shared their Valentine's Day message for the inspiring couple.
