Renowned playwright and life coach, Ebo Whyte, has celebrated his wife, Florence, as they mark 37 years of marriage.
The popular entertainer recently recounted the journey before their nuptials and as a couple in a post on social media.
Ebo Whyte noted that their marriage would have collapsed if not for his wife. He said he was naïve at the time.
''37 years ago today at 2pm at St Luke’s Methodist Church , a clueless 29-year old Ebo got married to Florence and the marriage would have ended, if not for Florence,’’ the initial part of his post read.
He also admitted that he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend when he exchanged vows with his wife.
''I married Florence, when I was still in love with someone else. I did so because I was too naïve to understand that just walking away from a relationship doesn’t mean its done.
"I underestimated how much the girl meant to me and thought that the great chemistry I had with Florence was enough,’’ he said.
''After the first three terrific years of the marriage, I discovered that the basis on which I walked out of the previous relationship was false - I had been fed with false information by a trusted source with the intention of killing the relationship to benefit his friend who was also interested in my girl.’’
Ebo Whyte, however, revealed that:
"One day, in the middle of one of our arguments my wife looked me in the face and said, 'Ebo, you may think that you made a mistake in marrying me but I want you to know that I did not make a mistake in marrying you'. Her words hit me.’’
After 37 years of being joined together as husband and wife, Ebo Whyte took to social media to eulogise his wife as he credits the success of their marriage to her.
Whyte described his wife as a wonderful woman who brings the best out of him.
