Nnaemeka is a medical doctor and worked at National Hospital Abuja before relocating to the United States to further his studies in 2017.
The bride, Chinyere shares how it all started from her point of view
It all started with a phone call. I like to say it was love at first phone call. A friend of mine who I went to secondary school with, had written to me about his friend from medical school that was moving to the US for graduate school. He asked if I was open to talking with his friend about the graduate school experience. I told him I was no expert, but happy to help.
Nnaemeka sent me a message on WhatsApp and I felt our discussion would be more productive over the phone. When he called me the first time, over the weekend, we spoke for over five hours! I thought it was a one-off occurrence but felt like I really connected with him. The next weekend, we spoke again for over five hours – let’s just say we weren’t sleeping much at night anymore!
When he came to visit me and I saw him, I knew he was my husband because we had bonded over the phone and I liked what I saw. Following his first visit, we prayed and fasted together regarding marriage. Through that period, we further confirmed we shared similar values. I became more convinced he was the person I would spend the rest of my life with. The rest is history, as they say. I am so excited to do life with my “gentle giant.”
