Chris Medina: The ‘Idol Worship’ Interview

THR: Do you still plan to get married?

Medina: I sure hope so, that’s the goal. I’ve already told myself that it’s okay that she’s in a wheelchair. It doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s okay if she has a hard time speaking. What’s not okay is if in a couple years, she’s not 100% and we can’t could have a conversation with each other, because that’s the essence of a relationship. I don’t mind helping her into her car, but I don’t want to be feeding her or taking her to the bathroom everyday from this day forward. I want her to become somewhat independent. Those are more my own personal issues, and I know that it might be rough for a lot of people to hear, but that’s the truth of the matter. To me, Juliana is still beautiful, but I want to be able to sit down and have a meaningful conversation with my wife… I want to get to a point where I feel less like a caretaker and more like a fiancé. But to say, “We’re not going to get married until you get better” is unfair to her, too. So the only thing I say is: “Babe, if you keep trying, I’ll keep trying.” And that’s the truth.
