And many who enter it fail midway. It takes a very special man to keep a marriage for that long. Okyeame Kwame is one of those men after keeping his wife, Anicca Nsiah Appauu for six years.
He decided to share this beautiful photo of him and his wife plus a beautiful message.
Six years ago I was afraid of the word marriage. The message reads
I was afraid that a best friend would become a wife who would then become an enemy
I was afraid that innocent children and unrelated family members would be caught up in the middle of the fierce social media display of hatred and disgust for ourselves as ex-best friends.
*Sexy Trendy Body
I was afraid that a sexy trendy girlfriend would become a shapeless boring wife.
*Perfect in impections:*
I was afraid that the perfect imperfections of a girlfriend will become a terror stare every morning and during nights when I run out of excuses to stay late at work.
I was afraid that a humble respectful girlfriend would become my co-equal and develop a sharp tongue which will slice my ego in public with Tweaaa
I was afraid that the illusion of my artistic persona will diminish as I constantly exhibit my human errors and imperfections.
I was afraid that three times a day of excitement would reduce to once a night but with looooong hours of begging.
I was afraid I will loose you to religion and that our all nights will become your all night in the fellowship of spiritual mmaa kuo sisters whilst the winter in my bed drives into the summer of another woman’s bed.
But six years after facing the fear of marriage.
Our friendship is stronger than best friends had ever experienced
The joy of raising our offsprings together blooms into a beautiful unit and this makes our families (extended) love each other even more than we love ourselves
*Sexy trendy body*
Your sexy trendy body though has increased in inches is still the number one reason why I am always in a hurry to be with you. This feeling is skin deep.
*Perfect in impections:*
Your imperfection is a constant reminder of my imperfections. Overcoming our personality differences increases my knowledge and consciousness of self and others. I love that side of you that I am yet to conquer.
I now understand that though I’m the head of this body. However, you are the neck that makes it turn. Though to your advantage most of the time you make the head turn in a positive direction so your tweaaa comes not in public.
You have sacrificed your personal dreams and my goals are your goals. You illuminate my strengths and dim my errors. My stars hide when yours shine.
Three times a day of excitement has reduced to once a night and long hours of begging but it is because we are chasing other very important dreams during the day
We have found an important balance of sacred and secular. You know that increment in spirituality only makes physical beings more sensitive to other people’s needs.
HAPPY SIXTH ANNI – VERSARY. YOU COMPLETE ME, ANNICA NSIAH APAU. May our next Sixth anniversary have a zero after it
