- Liz Muyu and Ocampo met through their parents and the two were asked to settle down for marriage despite being strangers
- They found the idea to be odd and ignored it for some time before Ocampo's dad announced that they were engaged during a church service
- Liz was taken aback by the announcement as she already had a boyfriend back in Kenya
Pastor Liz Muyu and her husband Ocampo are not your regular lovebirds. They did not love each other from the onset.
The two got engaged without consent during a family vacation but ended up loving each other fiercely after walking down the aisle.
Liz told Switch TV she met her bae in 2012 after her mum and his mother arranged their marriage behind their backs.
For a few months, the pastor's mum urged her to settle down with Ocampo but she was not open to any arranged shenanigans because she regarded herself as a modern lady.
During a family vacay in the Philippines, Ocampo's father went on the pulpit and told his church members that finally his son had found a woman he wanted to marry.
"His father who was a pastor told congregants that Ocampo found a woman and I was curious to know who it was. I was shocked to hear my name being called out. Just like that, I had been betrothed despite having a boyfriend back home," she narrated.
Liz was against the whole arrangement and at some point, she blocked Ocampo on social media. He was never her type and she always envisioned herself with a tall, dark and handsome man she chose for herself.
The woman of the cloth went ahead to date another man but his level of purity did not match hers. The mother of three then decided to give Ocampo a second chance and as soon as she unblocked him, he asked for her ring size.
In five days, the two planned a wedding knowing too well they still did not love each other.
On their wedding day, the pair were still strangers and had no drop of love for one another within them.
Their first kiss was on the altar after saying their vows and during their honeymoon, Liz and Ocampo were surrounded by family members.
"We started dating after getting married and with time we fell in love with each other," the preacher added.
