Love, they say conquers everything. But the rate of divorce in this era is rampant than every time in history. A lot of couples today fail to keep a long lasting relationship and marriage these days. However, one particular couple have defied all odds to set an example worthy of emulation for young ones in relationships today.
John Asakinaba and Faustina Asakinaba are both visually impaired couples who have been married for 37 years now. In a post sighted by GhanaWeb, one of their sons, Emmanuel Asakinaba narrated that the couple lost their sight at an infant stage. According to him, the couple lost their sight due to measles which was widespread in those days.
The couple met when young John Asakinaba was embarking on crusades to enlist disabled children in villages and remote communities to enrol into the Bolgatanga Rehabilitation Centre for Persons with Disability, but little did he know that one of his recruits (Faustina Asakinaba) will capture his heart and become the love of his life. After cogenting Faustina Asakinaba and her parents to allow her to enrol as a weaver in the rehabilitation centre, the duo fell deeply in love with each other and got married two years later after their initial meeting in 1983.
Now advanced in age, the couple are celebrating 37 years of their marriage. A union blessed with five children, two boys and three girls. Their marriage has been a wonder to many people because of its longevity.
True and real love still exist, it’s all about finding the right person at the right time. I pray that everyone that reads this will also have a long lasting and happy marriage. Amen.
