Romeo and Juliet chose to die together because of the depth of love they shared, but this model couple chose, not just to live and share life together, but to keep the romance going while at it. We are talking of none other than the President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina and his beloved wife of 35 years, Grace Yemisi.
Their 35th wedding anniversary was on Sunday, 28th of July, 2019 and he posted a photo of he and his beautiful wife on Twitter, along with a romantic message which read “Today is a special joyful day for me: 35 years ago I married my sweetheart, Grace Yemisi. I would not be who I am today without her. I will marry you again, honey, 35 times over. Happy 35th anniversary my sweetheart, rock and friend”.
He then followed that with a collage of 2 older photos of he and his wife from their white wedding in 1981, and a recent photo with the caption
“My sweetheart, we were so young, found love, and never looked back since 1981. Today as we celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, I just want to thank you for marrying me. Marrying you is the best decision of my life”!
Don’t you just love love? We definitely do!
