An inter-abled couple got married and they spread love and positive vibes throughout the world. The pleasant image of our story’s heroes may lead you to believe that their journey to a robust, loving family was simple and straightforward. Both of them, however, had to overcome numerous obstacles, including physical challenges and prejudice, on their journey to becoming a strong and caring unit.
Winston Ben Clements is an entrepreneur, public speaker, and mentor. Mayfair Clements is also an author, a public speaker, and a high-performance coach. Except for one thing, their love tale could have been any other. Winston “was expected to face a life of loneliness and misery as a result of a rare bone condition.” As a result, the story, which appears mundane at first, becomes captivating after we dig a little further.
Winston and Mayfair come up about their inter-abled relationship, encouraging other couples in similar situations to share their emotions.
He was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, better known as brittle bone disease, a rare hereditary ailment. The illness makes a person’s bones excessively brittle. And “even the impact of a fall may possibly be fatal,” as Winston puts it.
He claims to have had over 200 fractures and has spent a large portion of his life undergoing medical procedures such as surgery and rehabilitation to treat his ailments.
Winston’s family was there for him at all times. “I got lucky and won the ‘family lottery,’” he says. “They gave me with a strong foundation of physical and mental support from an early age. They also always pushed and encouraged me to think bigger and not confine myself to a certain way of life.” As a result, he grew up to be an intelligent and self-sufficient guy.
Winston manages to live a normal, independent life despite his difficult circumstances. “While Winston does have to do a lot of things differently than the usual person, he is still quite autonomous and a lot more capable than one might think,” Mayfair says. Winston is capable of driving a modified vehicle on his own. Before he and Mayfair married, he lived alone in his flat for years. He also has the ability to speak at gatherings all over the world.
Mayfair continues, “The only thing I’ve had to learn to ‘cope’ with is the load of other people’s expectations.”
The couple just announced that they are expecting their first child. Winston explains, “It goes all the way back to when we first got married”. “One thing we all agreed on was that we wanted to start a family.”
“When people ask us, ‘how?’ we’ll tell them that the love you see is not the outcome of meant to be,’. But the product of choice,” Mayfair says of the pregnancy. A decision to face each challenge with zeal in our hearts and praise on our lips.”
The pair wants to make inter-abled relationships more normal.
The couple’s pregnancy announcement drew a lot of attention and highlighted concerns about inclusivity. “For many people, that isn’t something that should be achievable for a person with a disability or an inter-abled couple,” Winston explains. The purpose of the pair is to modify people’s perceptions of “normal” relationships and parenthood.
Mayfair continues, “A lot of what we do is myth-busting and really helping individuals overcome their own unconscious prejudices that they may have.”
