Love has no colours or boundaries, and such is the story of a woman who has defied social stigma, rejection and is now living with her husband.

She was mistreated, especially by men, which made her develop a dislike for men as she wanted nothing to do with them.

In an interview with Family and Religion at their home in Bottom Halse Hall, Clarendon in Jamaica, the couple reminisced on the journey to being soulmates.

Love at first sight

Ellis recalled that from the first time he laid eyes on Edwards, he was hooked. From a comfortable friendship, their relationship developed, and in February 2019, he declared his intentions to marry her.

With the positive vibes that she would accept his proposal, he went ahead to officially start their courtship.

Proposing to Edwards

The Jamaica Gleaner reports that at 10:32 am on Friday, February 15, a day after he gave Edwards a Valentine’s Day gift that brought her to tears, he surprised her with a marriage proposal in the customer service section at a bank.

YEN.com.gh previously reported that when Ama Afrakoma Appiah Dwaah first delivered her mobile number to Appiah Gerald in a conversation on Facebook, she had no idea the gesture would end in praise.

The duo had started chatting in their DMs, moving from total strangers to sharing contacts to establishing a friendship. Without a scintilla of coyness, Ama Dawah released her mobile number as though she knew the end from the beginning.

From the first day the pair bonded in their DMs, they would become friends and even proceed with plans to be husband and wife.
