A sweet story of love that conquers all social boundaries.
A beautiful Nigerian woman on Saturday, September 7, walked down the aisle with her visually impaired husband in a wedding ceremony which took place at St. Williams Catholic Church in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital.
It would have been like any other wedding except for the way the social media went crazy about how love happens.
The beautiful bride said to be from Plateau State said, ‘I Do’ to her husband from Kogi state while cheered on by her family, friends, and well-wishers.
A Facebook user, Nora Chika who shared photos from the event, wrote: “WONDERS shall never end, beautiful Plateau bride and her handsome blind groom. I witness the I DO I DO today, no be say na money the bride see, this is indeed true love. May God bless their union I pray,” she wrote in Pidgin English.
It is a known fact across many climes that physically challenged folks are stigmatized and often ostracized due to their conditions. From the workplace, love and relationships, and opportunities, they are part of the oppressed. For a woman to marry a physically impaired man, she must have crossed the social hurdles from friends and associates.
The photos of the newly wedded couple immediately went viral, as it further gives credence to the notion of love is limitless. This sweet story of love can teach today’s youth that love knows no barrier and it never discriminates.
