He fits every , okay almost everything I wished for.

I just did not pickup calls from the toasters!
How did you feel when the date of your wedding was confirmed?
Weird but happy (Finally free from my parents!!!)
Describe your wedding day?
It was a quiet peaceful day. Did not have too many people around me like your typical wedding. The Pressures started building by mid day because we did not have a planner and both of us planned together. We were on the phone a lot of the time, answering questions.

We did not have a theme.
Sex is usually shrouded in secrecy but if you were to describe your wedding night experience with a sound, which will it be? a. Kakpooooom! b,kpoooom! c,kpisho!.
It was soundless. There was no sex. It was that time of the month.

5 years this July 2016.
What is the journey like so far?

Trust and Friendship.
What would you say to a youth seeking to know the truth about marriage married people might be keeping away from them?
You have to be mentally prepared for it or else it will overwhelm you. The woman needs to ACCEPT that she is the only one in the whole family that will experience a complete turn around. Once she accepts that, the blow will be softer.
What’s your view on valentine’s day?
I loved it allllll my life until I got married to someone that did not believe in it. Imagine that kind of party pooper!! I just accept no-valentine this year 2016. And honestly, I am loving it.
Love is in deed a beautiful thing. Thank you for embarking on this month long journey with us. This is where we draw the curtain on this series.
