Picture this, it is your wedding day, everything is set from the flowers, the decor, the cake, the bride maids but you are anxious because you have never set your eyes on the man you are set to marry.
In as much as this scenario sounds bizarre, this is the story of Janet, who first met her hubby, Jackson on their wedding day.
Speaking in an interview with Afrimax, Janet said her husband, who was residing in the United States (US) got to know of her after a video of her narrating how she had transformed from being a sex worker to a staunch Christian went viral.
She said the video subjected her to shame especially since it was uploaded without her consent but a silver shining emerged after the man watched the video and he was deeply moved by her testimony.
"He saw my testimony and he was touched. He felt like we should live the rest of our lives together," she said.
He looked for her contacts as he was in the US and after he found them; he called her and they began a friendship that soon blossomed into full-blown love.
They would talk every day and as their love grew stronger, he proposed to her over the phone and soon enough, wedding plans kicked off.
The man did not mind that the woman had 10 children whom she had bore during her days as a prostitute. Instead of focusing on her past, he chose to see the reformed woman who was trying to build her life anew.
Janet said she faced opposition from her church who thought she was too much of a sinner to hold a wedding but luckily, another church accepted to officiate the ceremony in December 2020.
On the wedding day, everything was perfect and that was also the same day that the groom's plane landed and in no time, he arrived in church and the two met for the first time on that very day.
They exchanged their vows and after spending a few weeks together, the man flew back to the states for work as he also made plans on how Janet would move with him to the US.
In a video shared on his page, the actor pointed out that women who abandoned their homes due to their husband's philandering ways were only copying white women who are fond of going through several marriages.
Using the Biblical Solomon who had many wives and concubines, he advised that women who were married to cheating husbands should not leave their homes.
