This is their wedding story!
Man B and I met as teenagers and have remained friends ever since
He is someone that I’ve always been comfortable being ‘Me’ with, I went to Benin to do some work for my Dad and ‘our friendship escalated to a relationship’ , I didn’t expect a proposal when it came and first thought he was joking till he convinced me he was serious.
He asked at the right time because today I’m married to my friend, my partner and love all rolled in one.
Ize (as I love to call her) and I have known each other since she was 15 and we have been friends and have stayed so for many years.
It’s easy to stay friends with her as she possesses all of the necessary qualities to call her a true ‘African Woman’
As HIS Grace would have it, I knew it was time to truly enjoy the rest of my life and one key ingredient that was missing was ‘the right woman’. She came to Benin where I worked, to get some paperwork done for her Dad and blah! blah! blah! (to be continued)
I’m most grateful that she accepted to bear Mrs Joice Bruno Ifeanyi Akuazaoku.
Now I understand the old saying, ‘marry a friend’
