Here’s to us
On her 34th wedding anniversary, Betty Irabor had advised young couples who want a good marriage to work at it. She wrote;
‘What Soni and I have has taken all of 34 years to build.. So don’t for one minute think it happened overnight,’.
‘We have walked on that street called hope but having each other makes it bearable. A successful marriage doesn’t happen over night it requires sacrifice and it takes effort and nurturing.’
‘You want a good marriage? Work at it! Young couples seem to just want everything NOW NOW because they have to prove a point and impress their audience and in the process put a lot of pressure on their marriage.
‘A [good] Marriage takes two, it thrives on love in action not in mere words. Marriage requires commitment, empathy , TRUST (leave each other’s phones ALONE) don’t marry anyone you cannot trust!
‘Don’t overburden each other with over expectations and believe me the grass is not greener on the other side; avoid comparing your marriage/partner to others that seem rosier; water your own garden! In life everything is turn by turn.
‘Ojukokoro [Greed] is a vice that destroys relationships! If you both can’t afford it then you don’t need it.
‘Let your marriage grow organically. Do everything in love..don’t overburden each other with unrealistic demands.
‘Marriage won’t necessarily fix a bad relationship especially if your partner has habits that he/she won’t let go. Fix those issues before you say I DO!’
