But nothing compares to the advice of people who are directly living the experience of having a serious, committed relationship with a person who lives far away.
Enter Nora and Raoul, a married couple who, for a variety of frustrating bureaucratic reasons, have lived on different continents for almost their entire relationship. They are a delightful, smart, thoughtful pair who share their beautiful story of meeting and falling in love on a random trip and fostering their connection, despite being separated by an ocean.
They talk openly of the obstacles that keep them apart (now exacerbated by a pandemic and Trump’s recent decision to halt immigration) and their advice for others who are living under quarantine and feeling a taste of what they’ve been enduring for years.
It’s a sweet, charming conversation that will offer a lot of insights for the rest of us, wherever we are.
