Oghale added that there were temptations from all angles but was able to withstand them thanks to the counselling he received.
The bride said she took the decision to be chaste as a teen
Speaking on the 'feat,' the bride stated that she had vowed to keep herself until her wedding night right from her teenage years.
She said fulfilling the vow (to remain chaste) is one of the best things that would happen to her.
“It was not easy for me. I was severally tempted by my lecturers while in the university. Friends also tried to lure me into fornication and men asked me out. In fact, I went through so many challenges. But what guided me was God and my principle.”
Photo of the couple shared by @Lindaikejiblog on Instagram got many talking.
"That does not guarantee a successful marriage, we don’t even need to know about this."
"Some things should be left private. This is one of them."
"Awesome testimony.. More of God's Grace to everyone honouring God with their bodies by Waiting still marriage...in a world that fornication has been a norm.
"We need more of this so men and ladies see that it's possible.. Yes by His Grace I married as a virg*in and my 5 sisters as well...I gave my life to Jesus at age 14 in 1988, and I kept myself till my wedding night."
"A lot of children are practicing abstinence. It is just NOT popular which baffles me because it is NOT an easy decision.. I wasn’t but I am raising mine to be."

55-year-old woman marries chaste
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a 55-year-old woman who wedded for the first time had stated she married as a vir*gin.
On finally tying the knot, the lady said she kept on waiting on God for a miracle and was never in any relationship.
"The devil had plans to stop me from getting married. When I felt I was ready, there was no man coming for me. I kept waiting on God for a miracle till I reached 55-years. I never dated anyone till I got married."
On whether she nursed fears of the relationship not working out, the evangelist replied in the negative stressing that God had it all planned out.
