The other day, we brought you the love story of
Victoria and Lucky who got married 56 years ago in 1960 (HERE)!
Well, Film maker Onye Ubanatu has done it again.
This time he featured, Mr & Mrs Ikhide Atane who have been married for 35 years.
As an African filmmaker passionate about using media content as a social impact tool in making our community a better place, I got the chance to sit with this couple who have been married for 35 years to talk about how they met and what has kept them together.
Recently, I have been very concerned with the high divorce rate and failed marriages even before the wedding ceremony itself and also with the emergence of social media now seen as the determining factor for judging the quality and longevity of a marriage, using stories like these will help in strengthening healthy relationships and marriages.
This couple married for 35 years with a beautiful story and pure love for themselves despite their economic situation and with the feedback of how the initial video given hope to many, we decided to make a cut of this.
