The Story:
"True life story.....Please read on

Unemployed Christian Chukwudi Got Married against Friends Advise......
"You can't be paying the bills for him and still be doing all the work in the House". - wife's friends advised. A Guy who has no job got married to a banker, despite his fears and several advices that it's not good to marry without a job. Every month the girl would give the guy her full salary of N-135k after removing her tithe.

The guy would give the wife N-20k for personal upkeep and the guy determined what happened to the remaining money. This happened for three good years. There was happiness in the family and the wife never refused to do her primary home duties for that 3 years, despite wrong advice from friends that 'you can't be paying the bills and still be doing all the work'.

There was a particular month the guy used about N-70,000 to travel from state to state for different interviews.He finally got a job with a good firm in Port-Harcourt. His salary was N-600,000 monthly for a start. He bought his first car (a brand new) for N-4.5million(nira), he gave d wife the car key, and continued to take public transport to work for about two years. Then he bought the second car for N6 million. Then he took the keys of the first car and gave his wife the keys of the second car. They were very happy. They eventually moved into their own house after few years.One day, the wife was looking for some documents. Then she stumbled on a file neatly hidden, when she opened it, she saw her wedding picture when she was very slim in the first page of the file.

She then saw that the document to the purchase of the land and every other thing in the house were all written in her name! At the last page was the husband's wedding picture and a note written by him: ''MY WIFE IS ALL I HAVE GOT. NOT EVEN THIS HOUSE WORTH N-24M AT THE TIME I BUILT IT IS MINE''.

Tears started to roll down her eyes as tried to put the documents neatly as she saw them and walked back to the kitchen. This couple got married in 1998. Last Sunday was their wedding anniversary with three children, two boys and a girl. True LOVE still exists till this day. Are you sure the love you have for your partner can be compared to this one you just read? No matter what, remember you chose each other. So share. It doesn't matter who puts food on the table".
