I trust that our togetherness over the years have taught some people about perseverance, tolerance, discipline and friendship.
Though our marriage has not been a bed of roses like that, but we have managed to stay loyal to one another. I have been our soldier, protecting this fragile thing called marriage. E no easyooooooooo.
Now we know that marriage isn’t about how compatible couples are but how they deal with their incompatibility.
You are one of the things in my life that I got right, my ultimate merit badge, may we never grow old. If no be YOU, Na who. Your Loyal Mugu.”
