Mercy Johnson Okojie 6th Wedding Anniversary
The star actress and mother of 3 children who married her husband Prince Odianose Okojie back in August 2011, wrote a lengthy message on her Instagram page where she talked about her experiences in marriage. They have been married for 6 good years!
In her wedding anniversary message, Mama Purity first stated that she knows ‘Hate is not the first enemy of love, it is Fear, as it destroys the ability to Trust’. She then proceeded to outline things she has learnt in her marriage.
According to her:
“I have learnt that Love is 2 people,who trust each other enough to say the truth no matter how bitter and it stays between them.. I know, that there are 2 kinds of pain, the one that hurts you and the one that changes you…But….”
She also said that happiness will always come to those who share their love selflessly and that she either wins together or loose together with her husband.
“I have learnt that in all, you are my partner not my enemy as we either win together or loose together guiding each other like a secret.. I know ,that the scars you can’t see ,are the hardest to heal….But
I have learnt, that Happiness will always come to those who share their love selflessly as you can’t have love without a little pain and if the bond is strong enough to overcome the obstacle, then its worth fighting for.. And I do know, that as parents,our marriage counts more not less because even the kids are counting on us…But….”
In her letter, Mercy Johnson also said she has learnt that commitment is staying loyal to what you say you will do long after the mood you said it in has left you. She also admits it is hard to do.
Finally, the happily married actress says she appreciate the similarities she shares with her hubby and that she respect their flaws as well.
