Two years ago when I was still at post graduate school, I had a discussion with my classmates about how long couples should date before tying the knot.
Then, one of my classmates narrated how her uncle dated his girlfriend for 12 years but one year into their marriage, they broke up.
What could have been the cause? We all asked.
She told us that they were not compatible. They easily disagreed on little things and they were patching it up till they got married. Moreover, they couldn’t have been together for 12 years and not tie the knot.
So, we concluded that the number of years couple date do not necessarily determine the longevity of their marriage. The most important thing is for couples to be sure they are compatible enough to send forever together.
So, we say congratulations to Seun Obajolu, who got engaged to her husband three days after they met; married in 10 months and now, they are celebrating their 16 years wedding anniversary.

We are not the typical love story !
You proposed 3 days after we met, convinced I was the one for you while I’m thinking, “who is this crazy guy”? Yet, still going with the flow but with peace within that I was NOT making a mistake.
We were married in 10 months and 16 years on, we are still here! You, sure that I’m still the one for you and I, super convinced that you were meant for me.
Our marriage has not been perfect but all of the imperfections has taught us to love each other even better and brought us even closer.
Here’s toasting to 16 more years and lots more with you my “crazy lover”, my husband, baby daddy, father and friend Tunde Obajolu
Thank you for being my back bone, working with my imperfections and supporting my dreams!
Happy 16th year Wedding Anniversary to us!!!!!
