To show what nine years in marriage looks like, actor Deyemi Okanlawon shared a throwback photo and a current one. According to him, both photos showed that he is finer than his wife.

The film star then addressed those that are fond of gushing over beautiful couple photos and describing them as goals.

According to him, choosing to share the good times of his marriage does not mean that it is devoid of a lot of disagreements, not speaking, and the once or twice in a year outbursts of 'I’m leaving.'
