It takes 50% and 50% to make a divorce happen, but 110% from both parties to make a marriage work. Add in long distance, cameras and cultural differences, and you've got a full-time job. Alas, #teambrovarnik is born. We're not your "normal" couple, but then again what is normal these days? I'm a Jewish New-Yorker who grew up in Parkland, Florida and my husband is a Ukrainian-Israeli who moved here be with me. It's been 5 years and we're still going strong. We say that if we can go through what we did and still enjoy each other's company, we can get through anything. In a matter or f 5 years, we've been through: a long-distance relationship, I moved from NYC, he moved from Israel, we moved in with MY parents, lived with them for 8 months, 3 seasons of a TV show, 2 weddings in 2 different countries and 2 different cultures, finding jobs, buying a condo, opening up about a disorder on national TV, dealing with social media trolls and so much more, all while still getting to truly know each other.
