A Nigerian man gave the equivalent of a promise ring to his now-wife when he had nothing but words in which he said, he will go to make money and come back to marry her. The words sank in the heart of the newly-wed lady who shared their love story on social media.
According to the bride, she met the love of her life a year short of a decade ago when he spat his true feelings out to her but was clear on the size of his pocket and what he intended to do to change that.
In what some social media users are now referring to as a romantic proposal, the groom told his bride from when he set his eyes on her that he will wife her but only after he makes a lot of money. Nine years later, the determined man showed up and put his heart and money where his mouth had been.
Here's how the bride put it: "It all started 9yrs ago in zamfara state when he came for services.... meet him in a shop where i went to collect my clothes on a Friday evening.... it all started with you are beautiful I smiled and was like thank you....we had a little chat and exchange contact....after the service before he left he looked at me and was i love you so much...and went on and said I will go and make money,come back and marry you. Never believed it but to my greatest surprise that was exactly what he did. Today we are happy married....I thank God for being with us all through the years till today"
The bride shared lovely photos from their colourful wedding expressing happiness and disbelief that all her husband said actually came to pass.
Congratulations to the couple!
