Model Answer 1:
Mr and Mrs Saad live in the opposite apartment of mine at the Safwa City in Saudi Arabia. They are the couple who have a very happy marriage I have ever seen. They have been married for over 20 years and still, they are leading a romantic life and without any trouble. This is a great candidate tasks card for me, and I am happy to have the chance of describing the couple here.

I first met with this couple when my parents bought the apartment currently we are living in. As a neighbour, they paid us a visit on the very first day and I got introduced to them formally. But the introduction turned informal in the later stages while living in the apartment and still it is so. I used to visit them frequently and they loved me like their own daughter. As they had no kids, they loved me too much. So, there was no barrier to meeting them, especially with Mrs Saad. She is a nice lady with an exceptional intelligence.

They do a lot of things together. But I liked the way they care for each other. They also move for an outing together in different parts of the country. Shopping during the festivals is another important task for them and they take part together here. Interestingly, when they go on social occasions, they love going together. They cancel events if any one of them feels uncomfortable.

This is a happy marriage. They do not quarrel or get involved in any other types of issues which may disturb their inner peace. They have a sense of deep love for one another, and thus this marriage is blessed. In fact, the other residents of the apartment block envy them for their happiness. I pray for their happiness.


Cue Card Answer 2:
Thank you for the opportunity to describe a happily married couple. Mr Jim and his wife Mrs Rita share a strong bondage. They are the most famous photographer couple in the city of Paris. In fact, they have taken part in numerous activities together. They have a small family with a baby boy of three-years-old. I love to talk to them whenever I get chances. Actually, they are the nicest couple I have ever met in my life.

I came to know them during a photo exhibition here in Paris a couple of months ago. I went to visit the exhibition with my fiancé as part of impressing her. And it was a nice place to visit together indeed. There we met with the couple. It was a nice meeting with a friendly family. We came to know about lots of things about them. And now they have become my icon as a married couple. I try to follow them in my real-life.

Both of them are photographers. They have travelled in different parts of the world as part of their assignments. They love to visit the countries and click some extraordinary photos for their agencies. Being freelance photographers, they are able to work together. In their leisure hours, they cook and socialize. I had the chance to meet them on a private occasion and realized they were very friendly.

I feel happy that such couples still exist who share a special bondage. They have been married for about eight years and have stayed together each of the nights. This is interesting indeed. Moreover, I sought some advice from them about a happy marriage and I was benefited by exercising them with my partner. Therefore, I am highly glad to meet this couple.

2. While visiting India last year, I found a small family in a remote village – only two members, a husband and his wife. They do not have any other family members but they live in peace. They lost other family members in a tragic road accident. I felt sad for them.

3. Married for past 10 years, Annie and John make a good family. They are blessed with two kids too. Being a neighbour of them, I also feel proud.
