Mrs Taye Magown in this interview with OLUWASEUN SONDE, speaks on how tolerance, endurance, much love, care and understanding has been the key to their successful marriage.
How is like celebrating four years of marital status?
Well! I feel so happy and thankful to God because it’s been God all the way, you know what ever God has hand in always successful. Our marriage for the past four years have been so wonderful, though there’s no perfection anywhere, but lot of tolerance, endurance, patient, much love, care and understanding has been the key to our successful marriage.
How did you meet your spouse?
Wow! It was a faithfully day, he came to where I worked to do some certain things and we greeted each other. Actually, it was love at first sight for my husband, immediately he set his eyes on me, he fell for me (smile) after what conversations began from there relationship and to marriage.
What is your greatest happiness in marriage?
My greatest happiness is that I found a man who understands me, love me with all my faults and especially the beautiful Angel (daughter) God bless us with.
Can you tell us how have you been coping with your spouse despite colour differences and countries?
Hmmm! it’s was not really easy at the beginning, because the difference between us is just too much, different backgrounds, understanding and different ideas of life, but like I said earlier Patience and tolerance has really helped us and keep us going with genuine love. Lots of people have come in between us saying this or that especially from my hubby’s end but because he really love and appreciate our coming together, that does not affect anything.
What is your greatest challenge in marriage?
My greatest challenge in marriage, when I was looking for the fruit of the womb, for good two and half years I was desperately looking for one, but my hubby actually stood by me even though he’s much older than me but yet he love to have children with me, and with God today, I overcome my challenge
What would be your advice for people that want to tie the knot soon?
My advice to them, first they should commit their journey into God’s hand by being prayerful, they should seek for God’s consent. Secondly, they should portray all these listed qualities, lots of tolerance, patience, endurance, prayerful, they must be strong obstacles will definitely come, they should be hard working. As for the wife, do not expect too much, lean to forgive easily, don’t nag, care about your home, don’t tell anyone what you are going through in your marriage be good or bad, make your spouse your best friend, always appreciate your man, that is saying thank you for whatever good he does, lean to say sorry at all times because that helps a lot and lastly, be honest.
