Meet Ana Maria and Ambrosio Lopes. They’ve been together for 60 years.
They now have a large friendly family, but at one time they had to fight for their right to love each other.
Ana Maria and Ambrosio first met in Rio de Janeiro in the mid-1950s, and they immediately fell in love. But Ana Maria’s family opposed their relationship, because the two lovers had a different skin color and social status.
Despite her parents’ opposition, the young woman packed a suitcase and left home with her beloved. Ambrosio promised that they would be together for the rest of their lives.
Over the following 60 years, they raised two daughters and five grandchildren. Today, they still love each other just as much as they did when they first met.
