From the groom:
I first met my wife when I was 13. I had transferred to Yaba college of technology secondary school in Lagos. It was everything about her, we were in separate classes and it was almost like I never missed a single time she passed by my classroom. She carried herself so well, I just wanted to be friends with her but every time school was over, there was already someone waiting to take her home.
The following school year, I hit the jackpot! We were in the same class!. I finally got around to speaking to her, and it was the most amazing friendship imaginable. We were inseparable.
After a while, my family relocated to the United States, even though we were young, we had become very fond of each other and it was the most difficult time for us. But not even that could’ve separated us. We stayed in touch, sent emails and pictures every now and then. Even though there were times communication was difficult, I had my eyes on the prize lol. Being away from her for seven years and six months has absolutely nothing on the way I felt about her.
I came back to Nigeria to see my fathia in 2014, it was right after we both graduated University. She was at the airport and she was even more beautiful than I remembered. I never needed confirmation that fathia was my wife, even though we tagged it a “friendship” the entire time. I came back again after only a few months and I just wanted to marry this woman.
In 2016 she was in America, I already had a ring and I was going ask her ” officially” to marry me. I asked her to go on a 4 hour road trip to Niagara Falls, Canada with me and that’s where I proposed, she had always wanted to see Niagara Falls. I look to growing old with her and having a great family together.
