In The Vow: The True Events that Inspired the Movie, Kim and Krickitt Carpenter's true story of memory lost and love found... again — STORY BELOW...
The Vow traces actual events from the 1990s, when Kim and Krickitt met, fell in love and married. Just 10 weeks later, the couple survived a terrible car wreck with Krickitt awakening in the hospital married to a stranger. The accident had claimed 18 months of Krickitt's memories, including all recollection of Kim.
With Kim committed to his marriage vows and Krickitt maintaining her strong Christian faith — even if recent memories were gone — the couple began the long road to a rebuilt relationship, with a second wedding ceremony and renewal of their vows. Krickett answered in part one of the interview, so now here are Kim's answers.
Please describe the devotion and sacrifice you both experienced after the accident, including the subsequent writing of the book about these experiences.
To be tested at such an early stage of marriage in a situation like this was miserable. Only after gaining an awareness of understanding the task at hand, was I able to realize what it was I had to do. I divulged myself on us, and life as it seemed stopped for everything else. There were constant challenges, and yes at times I was ready to give up but the support system around us, accompanied with the faith I had in God, enabled me to continue on. It was not an easy task but the sacrifice and devotion created a far better reward than quitting.
Writing the book was another way to share that life not only gets tough, but one can persevere and surpass any and all odds of losing a marriage and surviving the storm. A marriage does not just have to be a relationship with another. It is a commitment to anything you pursue. A Japanese producer once said "Mr. Carpenter, The World Needs This Story," so we delivered it.
