How did your marriage happen?

I didn’t plan for the person I married but I was planning for marriage. Because of my humble beginning, I didn’t marry on time. My higher education was largely sponsored by family and relatives so I didn’t want to put an extra burden on them to marry in my uncle’s house. I was taking my time and searching for a partner but it was something that took a long time because I wanted to settle down and be empowered financially.

How did you meet your wife?

I was in my office in my law firm in Lapal House (235 Igbosere Road, Lagos Island). I had just retired from Gani Fawehinmi Chambers and set up my own company. My colleague called me and said she wanted to do some research on a case I was handling about oil spillage at the time. She wanted more information concerning the case so she said she was going to send one of her junior lawyers to my office to check on the work. Immediately I saw the lady she sent, the way she greeted me, her humility, simplicity and beauty, I was just stuck. I had been searching for a life partner. So in my mind, I just said this would probably be the person I could settle with.

How did you court her?

When I met her, I played all the tricks available in the game. I tried to take her on a date and she declined. I asked her to come and help me do some cooking at home and she refused. She said she didn’t visit people alone at home. I was a young man and I was doing well. I thought that any lady would be willing to easily give in to my antics. But here I was, meeting a law graduate from the University of Lagos, who would not agree to go out with me. That made me more interested in her. Even when I used to travel to meet her during her service year in Bayelsa, she would insist I should get a place to stay. She didn’t allow me stay in the Corpers’ lodge. She would not also agree to come and meet me at night so I couldn’t even contemplate any sexual relationship. She told me she had been like that for a long time so it was either I was ready or not.

Was there any funny occurrence on your wedding day?

On the April 20, 2002, because I was interested in getting a good outing for the wedding reception, I took my friends to the venue of the reception to set up canopies. I was doing everything by myself because I didn’t have money. On my way back from the venue, as I was rushing back so I could dress up, pick up my groomsmen and head back to the wedding, I was arrested at the junction of Dolphin Estate by some policemen. There was no explanation I didn’t give but they said I was going to go to the station with them. It was a Saturday so they said I was to stay with them for the weekend and be charged to court. Everyone was calling me and I was there begging the policemen. I did everything; I prayed. I was there for two hours. By the time I got home to dress up, the wedding proper had started. In fact, people thought I had run away.

Were you able to consummate your marriage on your wedding day?

The people who attended our wedding were so wonderful. The caterer we hired had packaged some food into our car that day because we were fasting. I had rented a guest house that day somewhere at Yaba, where we were to spend the night, given the fact that we would be tired at the end of the day.

We were moving in transit to Whispering Palms Hotel and Resort in Badagry; a recreational centre we had hired that day. We spent that night in the guest house in Yaba that day and to the glory of God, we were able to consummate our marriage that day. That was our first sexual encounter.
