How far would you go to bond with your significant other? A romantic dinner, buying a puppy or taking a trip together were probably way too trivial for a young married couple in the U.S, who took the meaning of bonding perhaps too literally.
Would You Try This Way Of Bonding?
Madison and Josh Lovell are a happily married couple who live in Chicago, Illinois. But when Josh, who works in the U.S Navy, was told that he’d have to leave their house for eight whole months to live in Hawaii instead, Madison decided to take drastic measures in order to make the most of their remaining time together.
Her idea was as simple as it was absolutely crazy. What Madison did was to tie the strings of her hoodie to the strings of her husband’s, covering the biggest part of their faces and leaving only a small hole open so they can look at each other – much like a horse’s blinders allow for limited vision forward and no peripheral vision whatsoever.
This way, they could literally “only have eyes for each other”, so they could engage in their own personal staring competition of sorts, as well as be tied to each other in a way that only allowed them to move around together.
This “unconventional” bonding technique was made widely known by Madison’s sister, Allu, who made sure to capture the moment and post it online, on Twitter, showing her own surprise at her sister’s whacky idea, wondering “What is wrong with my sister and her husband”.
An Internet Sensation
Just hours after she made the tweet, it was already an online sensation, with over 20,000 retweets and almost 60,000 likes at the moment this article is written. In fact, it has been such a success that many more couples have imitated the idea, or even claimed to have been there first.
Say what you will, but when it comes to matters of the heart, anything goes. If tying your hoodies together is what bonding means to you, who are we to judge?
