Before they could get married, Carrie and Sujeet would need a support worker to help them with the basics, like keeping track of money, meals and appointments. Carrie also had a procedure that would prevent her from getting pregnant. "Children are a big responsibility and we just have to be responsible for ourselves, really," she says.
With their parents' approval, the couple celebrated their union with two dream weddings to reflect both of their religions—Sujeet is Hindu and Carrie is Christian. Since they had ceremonies on July 1 and 8, they celebrate their anniversary on the first and eighth day of every month!
"No matter where we are in life, we will never grow apart," Carrie says. "If you really love somebody, never, ever, quit."
