Tori Roloff Is Ok With Her Hubby Being Way Shorter Than She Is: Their Love Is Bigger Than That
People care too much about what others think about them, and as a rule, this prevents them from living their lives to the fullest. They restrict themselves in whatever they do and dream about. However, everything may change if they start believing in themselves as Zach Roloff did once he met Tori.
Zach and Tori Roloff’s unique love story
Their love story is perfect for a quiet family evening near the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. This couple knows what it means to be different, and they don’t care about it at all. Back in 2010, Zach didn’t even dream about such a cute girl as Tori until he met her.
He was too shy even to think she would go out with him. That’s when one of his friends gave Tori a hint that Zach likes her. So, they had their first date, and these first 5 hours grew into a happy marriage.
Tori Roloff doesn't care that she's taller than her husband
Tori, 26, knows perfectly well that looks is not everything, and that the most important thing in your life is the feeling of love you have towards others. She admits she loves her husband for who he is, and his appearance isn’t something that bothers her. On the contrary, here’s what she wrote on her Instagram:
I don’t love Zach because of how he looks (although he is quite handsome if I do say so myself) but rather what things weigh on his heart.
So I was wandering target... as I do... when I heard a man say to his wife “well at least I’m taller than you.” And the wife responded with “well I would hope so.” Some of us just have the idea of beauty and love so backwards. It doesn’t come from outward appearances but rather from inner beauty. I don’t love Zach because of how he looks (although he is quite handsome if I do say so myself) but rather what things weigh on his heart. It doesn’t matter to me that I’m taller than my husband. Honestly it gives me an excuse to never wear heels. Ever. I can’t imagine my life if I had never given my husband a chance because he was shorter than me. Love people because of their minds. Not their bodies. #kthanksbye #mydailythought #storyofzachandtori
Then, she continues saying:
I can’t imagine my life if I had never given my husband a chance because he was shorter than me. Love people because of their minds. Not their bodies.
How Zach Roloff's own childhood prepared him to be a dad to a son with dwarfism
Zach was born the way he is now. Back then, he was diagnosed with achondroplasia, a common form of dwarfism. It wasn’t something out of the ordinary in his family because his parents had the same condition.
I’m feeling just a little sentimental tonight... after breastfeeding for the last 6 months we introduced solid food to Jackson tonight. Although we’re still doin our thing it felt like the first time I have to let go of my baby a little. We worked so hard to get where we are with BFing and I’m proud of the two of us but it was a glimpse into baby J already becoming more independent. Before i know it he’ll be in college right? It all goes by so quickly. The other day I looked up the meaning of Jackson and it is this: God has been gracious; has shown favor. Are you kidding me? That’s exactly what I feel every time J looks at me with those beautiful blue eyes. i never knew one person can make you love so much. He makes me love God more, and Zach more, and myself more. i just pray this boy knows the love he exudes and that he shares it with the world always. ???? okay done being all sappy. ???? #zandtpartyofthree #babyjroloff
At the beginning, Tori was having apprehension towards the possibility their child might have the same diagnosis as the father. Nevertheless, when she first saw her kid, all the scary thoughts were gone.
Zach, in his turn, hopes to raise a strong and confident boy, Jackson. Here’s what he says on the matter:
You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two. But I knew, dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it.
Let’s wish this family lots of luck on their way!
