I finally said ‘I do’ to the woman I have loved and known for the past few years. I have been in a relationship with Racheal for over 4 years and we really had a lot of ups and downs in our relationship but I want to thank God for the people that helped us to pull through all the trials and differences that we faced; Mr. Bestone Chileya who was off his busy schedule to offer counseling to us and also Mr. Simon Chilongoshi who played a vital role not only as my boss at work and fellow church mate at Trinity Baptist church but also as my confidant. I thank you so much for helping us.
I met my wife in 2006 through her elder sister Melissa who was my classmate and a very good friend while in college. We started relating officially on 21st May 2007 and I do remember every bit of what happened that day. Racheal showed me the true meaning of love and I don’t regret knowing her. She has been a source of encouragement when things become tough to a point of giving up, indeed as Cece Winans sang, “It wasn’t easy but it was worth it…” can be a true testimony to what we went through.

My wedding vows to Racheal were:

“I, Obvious, take you Racheal, to be my wife, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish you and love you today, tomorrow and forever. I will trust you and honour you, I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will love you faithfully, through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. What may come, I will always be there. As I have given you my hand to hold, so I give you my life to keep“
Her wedding vows to me were:

As I looked at Racheal in her eyes as she said her vows to me, I began to reflect on what she told me sometime back, she said “The ball is in your hands and if you want it to remain, it can remain… if you don't want it, you can let go". My dream of marrying Racheal finally arrived and I will always thank God for her and I vow to love her with all my heart.
