After failing to say his last goodbye to her at the airport, Joseph said he jokingly teased her he would visit her in the UK to personally give her the goodbye gift he had gotten her.

He also wrote that he had previously told her: "Don't worry. Study well and FINISH WITH A FIRST CLASS... I'll be there at your convocation...and WHISK YOU OFF AFTERWARDS TO MARRY YOU ON THE SAME DAY!"

Little did he know that both statements were actually going to happen.

“Not only did I actually come to give her the golden wristwatch by myself but I also witnessed her graduation and ‘WIFED’ her the same day! (Only the order was different; marriage first, graduation afterwards...),” Joseph said.
