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

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.
So my friends, that is our story in a nut shell. Thanks for taking the time to read through. I hope it blesses and encourages someone. God bless you all.
Please feel free to leave us your comments. And share your story with us. God bless you all.
I can start by going to the book of Genesis in the Bible of how God created Adam and removed Eve from his ribs and more, but the truth is, majority of us know this truth already and no need repeating it.
Marriage was created so that between a man and a woman, the Essence of God which is LOVE can be shared. It is a world without limitations, where the mountains can become plain and the valleys filled up with the expressions of the love couples have each other. It is a place of calm, of abundance, of peace, of joy- when you lie in the arms of the one you call your heart. It is a place where the music sung can never end and we play in the drama that continues forever. A place where we bring forth golden bright futures and in these kids, we continue living even when our consciousness in this dimension is gone.
Marriage is LIGHT and it sheds light on who we are and all that needs to be worked on within us. It heals and has a transforming power- it can literally transform your life if it is used the right way. Its light has the power to dis-spell darkness. You need not fight the devil, love does all the fights, that is why he attacks marriages by constantly bringing in disagreements. The devil thrives in divisibility, your union is a problem for him and he will do anything to tear any couple apart. The more we have couples who are in love and who are ready to fight tooth and nail to make their marriage work, the easier it will be for his kingdom to be destroyed but you see, he does not want that to happen.
Your marriage is not just the union you both share, it is really looking at your spouse and seeing him or her as ”the marriage”. without them in your life, there is NO marriage. Marriage is no longer about you but ‘him’ or ‘her’ in your life.
The marriage between God The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit cannot be exhausted or completely understood, but one thing that stands out is how They are together and yet independent of Each Other. And that is one of the manifestations we see in our marriages- both together and yet independent of each other. And in this independence, I do not stand as me, but I stand as ‘you in me’ and ‘me in you’.
You can choose to say ‘to hell with it i am better off alone’. Yes, you are if you are with the wrong person. But you are better off being with the right person. There is always a special person that has been given the ability to truly love you as you desire to be loved. Just because someone almost messed up your life because of their own lives that has first been messed up, does not mean that you cannot find the true person who was meant for you from the beginning. You have your own Mr. Right and Mrs Right. Believe that!
