Model Answer:

Mr. and Mrs. Saad lives 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 in 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 for social occasions, they love going together. They cancel events if anyone 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.
