“Plan to have BIG wedding anniversaries, instead of big wedding ceremonies”……. Michelle Obama
Among other things, the above statement was made by Michelle Obama @michelleobama on a show titled, “The light we Carry” with Oprah Winfrey @owntv. I stumbled on it on Netflix a few days ago.
Michelle went ahead to share that she was unhappy the first 10 years of her marriage even though she had a man who cared deeply about the family and was present. Today, she has grown, they have both grown and the story is different. Pls go and watch it (no spoilers)
Now, she looks forward to celebrating BIG anniversaries and encouraged young people to do wedding low key and make anniversaries BIG. That resonated so much with me!
Why? Why is it that voices that say marriage is a scam so loud and marriages are making it through 30, 40, 50 years happily, and their stories are either unsung or low key? Why? I guess it’s because bad news is sensational, and we averagely like gossip……ouch!
As I got online today, I saw that it’s the 30 year anniversary of an amazing couple, Pastors Sam @thesamadeyemi & Nike Adeyemi @nikeadeyemi , my first pastors in Lagos and role models indeed. 30 years is not a joke; so we make a big deal of it and congratulate you sir and ma. You will witness many more decades in love, joy, impact and fulfillment.
Our wedding is 20years this year and i’m sooo looking forward to it!
