Pre-wedding photos and old images of a couple who started dating in 1999 have shown that patience is truly a virtue.

The photos of the couple were shared by a Facebook user identified as Austine Bassey, who commended them for their patience.

Bassey wrote:

"Congratulations brother! It's good to be patient because nothing good comes easily, my regards to your wife-to-be! She's indeed your own."

Social media users were surprised that the lovebirds had been dating for 21 years and from such a young age and congratulated them for finally taking their relationship to the next level.

In other news, a female doctor from the north of Africa has taken her search for a husband to social media as she recently posted a picture of herself on Twitter and asked her followers if they needed a wife.

Dr Halima Abubakar with the Twitter handle @DrHalima_ got her followers talking with her adorable photo, which she captioned a bit cheekily:

"Thank you Lord": Mzansi beauty celebrates buying herself a new car
"Who needs a wife?"

The responses that Dr Halima Abubakar received with mostly positive and more than just a few men (and possibly women too) tried to shoot their shot. We wonder what her DM inbox looked like after she put the invitation out on social media.
