Thanking God for the 62 years journey of married life. We give all glory to God for His blessings.Thank you Akin darling for all the care and love. We thank God for the beautiful and God fearing children and grandchildren and we pray that we shall both finish well in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Her husband Pa Akin, who disclosed that got married in England, wrote;
Dupe darling, on Easter Monday, 62 years ago, we were joined together in marriage in England. God, in his mercy and love for us, gave us caring children and good grand children. Mar God’s holy name be praised. May he continue to bless us and our children and grandchildren and continue to make us a good example for others.
Happy anniversary, Dupe darling.
God bless us all abundantly.
Still on wedding anniversaries, in 2017, there was a viral report of a Nigerian couple; Professor Andrew Urevbu of the Educational Studies and Management Faculty in the University of Benin and wife Juliet who were special guests at a wedding. Like other guests they rejoiced with the couple.
However, they were shocked when they were told that the party was actually for their 40th wedding anniversary.
According to the photographer, Anthony Idiaghei, who filmed the event, that was a best kept secret.
“This is one of the most emotional event I have covered this year. Prof and Mrs. Urevbu were celebrating their 40th anniversary. Their children decided to give their parents a surprise wedding anniversary reception. Their parents got invitations as special guest for a wedding but they had no clue it was a fake wedding and every single person in the hall except the couple knew. You know how hard it is to keep a secret especially with that number of people but somehow the children were able to pull of this big surprise with the help of everyone in the hall. Was simply amazing to capture this moment and this day.”
