Amit Patel, an Indian man married to a Ghanaian lady, has reflected on their four years of marriage and 14 years of friendship.
Patel took to his LinkedIn page to make the reflection, noting that many people told them that their union would not work.
He wrote: "Along the way many told us it wouldn’t be possible, our families wouldn’t accept it, our cultures will clash, we will be disowned... the list is endless.
"This week we celebrate our 4 year anniversary as a married couple. 4 years from the day on which #IndiaMeetsGhana was birthed. This week we wanted to switch off and have some down time however it’s been so difficult to do so."
Patel said he and his wife are so passionate about campaigning for racial equality, adding that it feels like they are fulfilling purpose.
