It's true that you can't chose your family, so when things go wrong we have no choice but to confront problems and deal with them. This week we've got two very different stories about family relationships at breaking point.

At Sell My Story we're suckers for a good love story. When we heard about Patricia's plan to marry a man she'd never met, we couldn't wait to talk to her and find out why. What we discovered was a heartwarming tale about never giving up on love, and we admire Patricia's brave decision to marry the man of her dreams. We wish them all the best!
