When two people get married in a Cathilic Church, the Priest says clearly the words ”in sickness and in health” and after he finishes the two partners say ‘I do’. The problem is that in most cases the couple doesn’t really grasp the full concept of these words and when the sickness or the bad events come, they aren’t willing to solve them or face them together. This is not the case for Mona and Des, who were given a bad announcement regarding Jean’s eyesight. The doctor said that she would go blind in a few months. So, Brian decided to take on makeup lessons so that he learns to do Jean’s makeup fo when she won’t be able to do it herself.

The sweet case is coming from the makeup artist who gave the lessons to Des (aka Brian)
