In the '80s, long before social media overtook human functionality and existence, when a man met a woman and they fell for each other, their relationship usually took a wild turn but no matter the obstacles, they stick together.
People from that generation knew that if something was broken in human connection, it needed to be fixed, not abandoned. It is with such mentality, some African parents stay in love for many generations.
A Twitter user identified as Africanprize had the internet wishing for all the good things in life when she shared a beautiful photo of her parents and revealed that they tied the knot just three days after meeting and recently celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary.
Many people believe that before going into such a union as marriage, one must know their partner but stories of this kind of couple prove that no matter how much one knows a person, things will work out only if both partners stick together even when things are difficult.
Love is a decision and once two individuals decide to be together, their will can carry them through anything.
This story of this couple is inspiring for the romantics searching for a love so deep.
The Twitter user Africanprize also shared a recent photo of her mum and anyone can agree that she looks gorgeous at 54.
Meanwhile, a young couple who met on social media recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary. It does not matter the beginning, once two hearts belong together, nothing can keep them apart.
