On her 17th wedding anniversary, Sonali Bendre shared a heart-touching message on how the struggle with high-grade cancer changed her marriage for better.
Any successful marriage is a combination of three things – memories, forgiveness, and the spirit of never giving up on each other.
Though our coming generations are losing faith in the institution of marriage, people like Goldie Behl, Sonali Bendre’s husband, are showing us how true companionship looks like. Sonali and Goldie have been married for almost 17 years.
Since the time Sonali announced the news about her cancer last year, we have seen Goldie standing by her side like a true rock. Recently, Sonali shared an emotional post on Instagram on her wedding anniversary to share about the struggles the brave couple went through and how her cancer treatment has changed their marriage.
Taking to Instagram, the 44-year-old actor shared a heart-touching message sharing about the same day last year. She recalled her stay in hospital in New York and, how the couple’s lives have been split into two periods – “B.C (Before Cancer) and A.C. (After Cancer)”. She shared:
“This day, last year… we were in New York at the hospital. Since then, the Bendre-Behls have identified two time periods – B.C. (Before Cancer) and A.C. (After Cancer). Lately, my motto has been to move on & keep trying new things, and detoxing and rejuvenating is on top of the list. So on the occasion of our 17th wedding anniversary, I thought let’s take a break and go on a road trip to @atmantan.”
Sonali mentioned about how Goldie has changed his life priorities after their struggle with cancer, and it touched many hearts. She mentioned:
“Before Cancer, Goldie would have never agreed to something like this but I love how he’s changed ???? He has put everything on standby and has been focusing so much on me… and now I’m turning the focus back on him.!”
While concluding the heartfelt message she wrote,
“P.S. Happy Anniversary @goldiebehl, I love you more than you could imagine… thank you for being my pillar of strength in health & sickness… literally!”
Cancer is a disease that shakes even the most confident person from inside. It inculcates a fear that breaks not only the soul but also the family into pieces. It shatters the will to live in most of the people. But some brave souls face it with a lovely smile on their face. Such is the story of Sonali Bendre and her family.
At IFORHER, we want to not only thank Sonali for inspiring us but also applaud the support that Goldie has provided in Sonali’s cancer struggle. He has inspired many husbands & wives for not giving up on each other during testing times.
We wish the couple a happy and healthy life ahead!
