Society has set some norms and standards for a couple to ‘fit in’ in the society. You have to follow these standards or else you’re not suitable to live with them. After high school, you’re supposed to go to college, get a career, get married, and have kids. And things are done in this order since ages. But what people can’t understand is that it’s up to you if you want to do certain things or not. They can’t accept the fact that you are not liable to do what they say. Your life is yours to live as you see fit, and that doesn’t mean you are any less happy, or successful. This couple felt the pressure of society’s expectations and handled it adorable!
Jared Price and Chelsea have been married for five years and are living their married life happily. According to people and their family, it’s time to have kids but this couple is not yet ready to take the responsibility of kids. But they have a cute adorable furry dog who they love as their kids.
It was love at first sight when Chelsea met Riley. She was working at the Humane Society of North Iowa when Riley was surrendered. Riley’s keepers had passed away from old age and he needed a new place to live.
He was an adorable but shy puppy when he was in the kennel still it didn’t stop this couple from falling in love with him. Chelsea said, “She was only there for about a week before my husband and I decided that he was meant for us.” They adopted the pup and became a family of three. All this happened five years ago when they got married and since then they and the pup have grown closer.
Even though they are happy but people keep asking them when they’re going to have kids as the family is incomplete without kids. Someone even went so far as to say that Chelsea would never know love until she had a baby.
She was hurt by the comment and people asking the same question to her again and again but then she has an amazing idea. She had seen people do “newborn” photo shoot with their animals, so she thought maybe that’s what they could do, too! She decided to talk it over with Jared.
Fortunately, he agreed with her. “I talked about it with Jared, and we decided that to celebrate our five-year anniversary, we would have this photo shoot done, and it could be our tongue-in-cheek response to everyone who asks about future babies,” said Chelsea.
And as Chelsea worked at the Humane Society, she knew the perfect person who can help them do the job. The couple grabbed their pup, some props and went for the photo shoot. “Riley did pretty well at the shoot — all she had to say was ‘Treat?’ and he would look right at the camera,” Chelsea said.
The couple loves kids but they were tired of people asking the same question. What people don’t understand is that they will have kids when they’re ready to take this responsibility. Riley is more than happy with their situation. He likes humans a whole bunch but doesn’t really care for kids too much. They are a beautiful family of three and look absolutely happy with their lives!
