I met Mary-Anne (or "Ifemi" as I call her) for the first time in January 2015, when she was posted to the law firm where I worked for her NYSC program. My first impression of her was that she was intelligent, pretty, a bit too serious. Lol! I remember her walking into the office the first day she resumed and arranging her pen holder on her desk, with a stack of stationery, and books and how she eagerly asked our boss for any tasks to be assigned fo her. In my mind I was just laughing like "Madam Corper, it is not that serious". After some time we worked closely together on several tasks, and as we became close, I discovered we had a lot in common, I came to appreciate her beauty, intelligence, spirituality and diligence, and it dawned on me that I had met the woman of my dreams.close
I didnt immediately act on my feelings however, because I didnt want to take advantage of our closeness. After prayers and receiving clear direction from God I made my intentions known to her. The duration of our relationship has been blissful, I can gladly say I've never had it better. In her I've found a best friend, a lover, a prayer partner, a soulmate and the one with whom I shall fulfill purpose. I look forward to a lifetime of love and joy together.close
I met Babatunde when I was posted to his office for my NYSC. We were in the same cubicle, but I never really paid attention to him initially. I resumed work with such a serious mindset, because I was trying to just focus on my career. Having a man in my life was the least of my priorities at that time. Both of us were assigned to a lot of similar tasks and he was always very helpful at work. I admired his diligence, and punctuality, and he was always soo sharply dressed (as they call him in the office "El-Dapper Corleone of GQ Magazine" lol!). We eventually discovered we had a lot in common, we shared similar interests and values, had a lot of mutual friends, and we began to develop a friendship outside our work relationship. He even helped me overcome my fears and taught me to drive.close
After some time, I had dreams on several occasions about him being my husband. In my Christian walk, God has often spoken to me through dreams which subsequently came to pass. But this time, I just said "Lord, if it is your will, let it be" as the Bible says, “He who finds a wife, finds a good thing… " . So I said Lord thank you for the heads up, but let me sit back and let him do the finding. Lol! On May 23rd 2015, Tunde made his intentions known to me. I remember laughing when he said "I am not here to mark calendar and be celebrating endless anniversaries as boyfriend and girlfriend, I want to marry you". In my mind I said "Okay, stories that touch".close
I thank God he stayed faithful to his word, and few months into our relationship, he met my parents and I met his and on October 9th, 2016, we got officially engaged, and now we are counting down to our big day. Babatunde is amazing in every sense of the word. He's living proof that though it seems good men are hard to find, they still exist. He is loving, caring, godly, a total gentleman, and absolutely selfless. I recall 3 separate occasions when total strangers have approached us to ask if we were married and commend us, once at a restaurant, the second time in the market, the third time on a flight. Thank God for the loving bond established between us, that radiates for the world to see.
I had no solid plans for my 25th Birthday (9/10/2016) except to see a movie. After the movie, bae said "surprise, we are going for dinner". Got to Summerset Continental Hotel for dinner and met my sister's car parked outside after my sisters had lied to me that they couldn't join us for the movie because they had a party to attend. I suspected something was up, but thought the surprise was the dinner planned by Tunde and my sisters. I was already upset when he came to my house earlier in the day with only birthday gifts and he apologized for forgetting to buy my yearly birthday cake that i always look forward to from @cupcakefairyabj.close
After the main course, I asked the waitress what's for dessert and she said "cake and ice cream", i was rejoicing, at least i will eat hotel cake since you refused to buy birthday cake. Only for the waitress to show up with a big box and oga was kneeling down beside me opened the box and saw my lovely cake with "Please Marry Me Ifeoluwa" (one of my Yoruba names). I was just laughing like "Ah! You lied to me", and after he asked i said yes. No time for crying and drama. LOL!close

As love is what the day is all about, your presence is one we can't celebrate without. But should you still believe that a gift is worth giving, a small envelope for our future is a delightful blessing.

Maryanne is one of the best sisters you could ever have. She is God-fearing, cheerful and always willing to assist people. She has been a very good example to me and shehas a wonderful ear. "Bros T" as we fondly call him is definitely a wonderful man who has a very strong passion for God. He is also know for his calmness and care. Maryanne and Bros T are a power couple. They both knew they deserved the best, so they didn't settle for less. Their relationship makes you want to fall in love with the right person, over and over againbecause of the communication they havewith each other and their zeal to serve God.
I pray that the good Lord shall bless their union.

From what I've heard and seen of you guys, you're real #CoupleGoals. Congrats. God bless your home.
Maryanne is a genuinely wonderful person who puts everyone else first and is willing to go through any length to put a smile on people's faces. Right from the first time I met her till date, she has helped me in diverse ways and I cannot appreciate her enough for bringing so much light to this world.
AB on the other hand is such a gentle mand and he treats her with so much love and affection. The happiness that generates when I see them together always lights up the environment. I can't wait for them to take on the world as one.
I've known Maryanne for a while and she has to be one of the nicest people I know, a very selfless being, very loving and caring, always ready to help anyone and her love for God is just beautiful..
Bros T as we'd call him is very nice, thoughtful, well mannered, attentive and God fearing gentle man..
I thank God for this Union and I am really happy for them, and I know that God will bless their family and their love will never die and they'd grow in their love for God and each other, and their home will always be filled with love and laughter and peace..God bless you!!
