Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) convener, Aisha Yesufu is celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary with her husband. The human rights activist took to Twitter where she posted lovely romantic pictures of the both of them and captioned them with lovely notes as seen below.
”With the love of my life I feel so loved and protected. With him I am safe to be who I am without judgement. Nothing beats a man who gives you safe space to excel.
When we had nothing we had laughter and it has kept us together. We laugh at ourselves and at each other. We laugh together and at others. We can laugh just over nothing and we are always yabbing each other.
We never allowed society to define our relationship for us. We did it our own way. We owned it and we are loving it. Y’all can say what you want to say we are having the ball.
Our 20 year marriage has been blessed with two amazing children I am honoured God chose me to be their mother.
One thing I always said to my husband is I would always be babe. I am not interested in doing Madam wife! I am his babe through and through. In short he says I behave more like girlfriend than wife. I am the side chick with legality.
I had a friend who used to say to me there was a sort of invisible shield that myself and my husband had that said to people: you are an intruder in this union. I used to laugh it off but truly we are close!
I was told i won’t last in husband’s house because I had a big mouth and hated housework. When he proposed I told him I hated housework and was always sick. The big mouth he knew of. The first day, he said maybe he would come visiting and I told him I don’t do maybes.
He is not just my husband. He is my teacher and mentor. He is always on my case now that I don’t read as much as I used to and he is right. I really need to work on that
Oh my goodness. I still can’t believe it. The man whom I fell in love with from the moment he stood up and I laid my eyes on him as he towered over everyone in the room has been my husband for 20 years. It was #LoveAtFirstSight for me Today is our 20th Wedding Anniversary Wow!”.
