A Nigerian guy has described his journey from jokingly putting his JSS3 classmate’s name to the list of noisemakers to spending 10 years of happily married life with her.
The pair, who married in 2013, marked their tenth wedding anniversary with a heartfelt meditation on their ongoing love.
Citizen Nagaziman, the man, claimed that their love story began in 1999, when he met his future bride in Junior Secondary School 3 (JSS3).
Initially, he expressed doubts about her calm manner, admitting that he disliked “quiet people.”
To amuse himself, he would add her name to the list of noisemakers on purpose in an attempt to aggravate her.
The turning point in their love story occurred when Nagaziman saw upon his future wife without her school uniform one evening.
He realized he had misjudged her attractiveness after being struck by her beauty. Nagaziman gained the confidence to share his views after finishing secondary school in 2003.
Despite the fact that it took him a few years to express his feelings, their love story grew into a lifetime commitment.
“I knew my wife in 1999 when she joined our class, we were in JSS3, She hardly talk, I hate quiet people. I wasn’t feeling her vibes at all. I will add her name to the list of noise makers just to provoke her.
“You know how school uniform hides beauty, o yea, but one evening I ran into her without school uniform around “ohu oweyi”, I was like this girl fine oo, I must have been blinded by the beauty of the other girls in the class, it took me some years to tell her that I liked her, and that was in 2003, after we were done with secondary school,” he said in part.
