Maria and Karin Kaj

Maria is a banker and Karin is a renown lesbian romance writer. The couple met during high school and knew that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Maria and Karin believe that appreciating the small moments in a relationship is everything. Karin points out, "It's just a willingness to look at little things day by day and think of life on a day by day basis. It is the quiet moments when you're just sitting holding hands. It's not the romantic sunsets on the beach that is going to make the relationship endure". The couple have two children and have been together for over twenty five years.
