Months after the wedding, Isaac Obasogie in an interview with Kemiashefonlovehaven revealed how they met and fell in love.
Speaking on the reaction of his parents to his wedding, He said they disagreed saying never because he is their first son and first child and that it’s a shame to the family.
In his words, ‘My father didn’t agree and said I should go and marry but they would not come.’
Isaac added that none of his family members attended his wedding but when the saw it on social media, his eldest sister called to congratulate him but others didn’t. ‘I have not called my father but I intend to apologise for disobeying him. However, if I had married a woman not challenged our wedding would not have been celebrated like it was. I pray that nothing will separate us and I know she is going to walk.’
Constance on her part revealed she was sad not seeing her in-laws on their big day. She said, ‘I felt sad but I know in this part of the world, it’s not easy accepting a condition like mine. I believe it a lack of understanding and that with time they will understand. I put myself and my parents in their shoes and tried thinking of the reactions. I just believe that parents should allow children take some decisions of life without hindrance. In life, one should expect good and bad experiences and mine is no exception. With faith, we will conquer.’
