We have another love story to share with everyone from a couple I so much admire, love and respect. They are fashion icons, blessed with four beautiful children, and it just makes sense for us to read about how these love birds met. When  you meet your soulmate and you marry your soulmate, even if the journey is not as smooth as you would like it to be, there would be no other person on earth you would want to go on a ‘not so smooth ride’ with except them. So in all the twists and turns, and the loop-DE-loop, you choose that special someone always to be your partner in crime, success, strength, beauty and all.

“It all started about fourteen years ago, I was vacationing in Maryland to see my friends who I haven’t seen in months after the Nigerian reunion in Miami. The excitement built in me was quite different from the usual excitement I felt when going on a short vacation. It was a Saturday night and in the month of may when lots of people would be graduating. My friend busted into the room while I was sleeping and asked me with a mouth full of grin if I wanted to attend a graduation party. With a sigh of ambivalence, I agreed to attend after she told me the who of who’s in MD would be attending. On arriving to the party, I lost it and didn’t feel like I should be at the party any second longer. Just as I was about to tell my friend I would be taking my leave, I spotted a light skin built guy across the room looking my way. My friend came back to me and said we should leave, I told her I guess we should wait a second because this party might just be the best party I’ve ever attended. With every direction I turned my eye, I saw our eyes meeting. When we were about to leave the party, the gentleman approached me and introduced himself as Kunle, which surprised me because all along I had thought he was an Ibo guy. I chose to play the naija card and play hard to get by not giving him any attention. He asked me if it was OK to walk me to my car, which I reluctantly said it was ok. As God would have it, the next party we went to in DC, I came across this gentleman again at the party and he came over to me and bought my friends and I some drinks. He asked me to dance and showed me how to dance to reggae. His reggae dancing skills impressed me and we got talking and laughed the night away. We exchanged numbers and the first night we spoke on the phone lasted hours and I can remember us talking about different things that got us fascinated. He surprised me with a visit on my birthday few weeks later by telling me to step outside to pick up the package he had sent me and to my surprise he was the delivery guy with the package. He pleaded with me to cancel all prior engagements I had for my birthday and he took me to a water front restaurant in Manhattan, where we walked around the city and enjoyed each other’s company. The rest is history with four beautiful kids”.- Bunmi Ojo Adenugba

OMG!!! That is so cute!!! The delivery guy option was truly beautiful, any girl would fall for that…LOL. Thank you so much for sharing that beautiful story with us. This is to encourage the singles, especially those still looking unto God for a mate, yes, soulmates do exist and you will meet yours soon by God’s grace. Amen.

A cybercafe connected my husband and I- #FridayLOVE

IMG_1434

Hello friends. We are back again. It is another Friday and we are featuring another couple’s love story. And this is to show the divine Hand in the way we meet our loved ones. Lovers meet in weird places at weird times. It is not a planned or thought out meeting. It is a meeting that happens on its own when the time is right. So please remember to send your story to: beautifulmarriageforever@gmail.com

”Segun and I met at a cyber cafe in August 2004 (oh yes…) I went with a friend by name Tosin to a cyber cafe in Ilorin at owoniboys area because Tosin was to see her friend- Tolu at the cafe. On getting there, we met Tolu who was in the company of Segun and then we all just got talking and we exchanged email addresses and phone numbers at the end.

I got to know that Segun did not live in Ilorin and was just visiting his mum for a few days. I liked him immediately I saw him at the cafe and I even went as far as calling his number with a hidden number. After a few days, he left Ilorin and we did not connect again for another 3 years.

One early morning in June 2007 at about 5am, I got a call from Segun and he was like “its been a while..blablabla. I am coming to Redempton camp. Can I see you?” Unknown to him I was schooling at Redeemer’s University then. So we met and the first thing I did was check his fingers for a ring (lol) and he said you are checking my fingers? ”I am bringing yam to your father to ask for your hand in marriage”. And that was the beginning of us.

We lived in 2 different cities, I in Ibadan and he lived in Port Harcourt but distance did not stop us. He proposed in Jan 2011 and we got married September 2012. I would say I married my friend because I am always myself around him. He puts God first when making decisions, then me. We are blessed with a son. Thank you for reading”- Titilayo Olorunfemi.

(Awww I could not stop laughing at her checking out his fingers to see if he was married already. LOL. That was funny. I am glad you both ended up together. Thanks for sharing your story. May The Lord continue to bless and keep your home in peace and love always in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. God bless you).

How I met my husband- #FridayLOVE

This is our #FridayLove blog-post where we share how we met our spouses to encourage the singles out there who are still looking unto God for a great partner. The Lord works in mysterious ways and locating your spouse is not difficult for him to do. So please if you are married and would like to be featured, send your story and a picture (s) of you and your spouse to beautifulmarriageforever@gmail.com

 

I moved to Newyork in 2006 where I lived with my uncle and his family for almost a year. During the time I lived with them, few blocks a way from where we lived, I met a friend (Yemi) and we kicked it off immediately especially for the fact that I had longed to meet a Nigerian for awhile. So it was easy to connect with her. Everyday I got out of work, I would stop by to check on her, chat with her for awhile, danced, ate together before going home. She was really close to me. Then one day I did the same thing, stopped by her house as usual, but this time around she was on the phone. Immediately I got in, I yelled out her name and asked her how her day had been, she replied me but was still talking to the person over the phone and suddenly I heard her tell him or her (I did not know who it was at that time) that ”I was her friend and I just moved into the States not long”. I was wondering why she was telling a total stranger about me. But did not pay much attention to her.

Turning to the side, she said to me while she held her cell phone farther away from her mouth, ”he is asking about you because he heard your voice over the phone and said oh  she has a beautiful voice”…lol. I laughed and she then gave me the phone to speak to him, I was like, ‘hell no’, I don’t know him, but she encouraged me to just say hi because he wanted to say hi. I took the cell phone from her and said ‘hi’ politely, he replied ‘hello ooo’. Lol. We exchanged greetings for a few minute and I gave Yemi back the phone. He started begging her to please give him my number that I had a beautiful voice and would like to keep talking to me. I told Yemi a big, NO.

A few weeks later, Yemi begged me to please allow her give that guy my number as he was disturbing her everyday for my number. I later got to know that he was her boyfriend’s friend, and he lived in Maryland at that time. Just for peace sake and I mean for Yemi’s peace of mind, I asked her to give him the number. And before that day ended, he called me. His voice sounded so familiar though like I had met him before, but the truth is our path had NEVER crossed before that time. So I guess it was a soul recognition. We talked over the phone everyday for almost 3 months and we decided to meet face to face. We met December 2006 and I won’t lie I was scared that I was going to meet an ugly guy, he was scared too that he was going to meet a fat and not so pretty girl…LOL. Trust me, we both liked what we saw. After meeting back and forth for awhile,  he came out straight to me that he wanted to marry me and he was not ready to play around. And that was it, no jet, no musician or flowers, no kneeling down on one knees and all those fancy style of proposing..lol. I did not even take it serious, but then he took laws into his own hands when he saw that  I was not serious and  went straight to my parents and my siblings and introduced himself during one of his visits to Nigeria and bought them over.

We have known each other for 10 years now (would be 10 years in December) and been married for 7. Its been an awesome ride and very difficult too, but God has been faithful and He blessed us with 2 handsome boys.
