Wedding Diaries 2.

Posted on

You see, I had to go on dates with men from my village who asked me out. As much as it pained him, it was necessary to keep my parents happy. That was the only way I could argue that I was not closed up to other men. Let’s not go into what went down over the course of 2 years. We had informed our pastor of our unique predicament. She did not see any reason for us to back down. We decided to give my parents 1 year to come around. In the mean time, we prayed, fasted, confessed the word and kept hope alive.

A bride and groom standing together

My parents assumed I had given up. I spent little time at home. When they called, I avoided the topic. They would warn me and remind me of what awaited me but I didn’t engage them. I really respect my parents so much. From nothing, they both made a life for themselves and gave us all the comforts they could afford. I knew they only wanted the best for me. Did I mention that I am the 1st of 6 children? That means I had no older siblings who could speak for me.

Why do my parents believe in marrying amongst our kin?

1. Back in the day, it was believed that the best behaved girls would be noticed and courted by the sons of the land. The wayward girls married outsiders who knew no better.

2. Marrying within would guarantee their access to you. You would be home for holidays and participate in activities where they could show you and your family off. Think weddings, Thanksgiving services, burials and so on. These are gatherings where the childless or those whose children were n’ere do wells developed high blood pressure.Imagine having no one to cheer you on or support you in old age.

3. They genuinely believe that a man who knows their pedigree will treat you better. Afterall, his family knows yours, they probably live a stone throw away from your ancestral home. He should be wary of ill treating you.

After 1 and half years, we were tired of waiting. We had known each other for close to 9 years. The whole thing was becoming a drag. We had been to weddings of friends who met long after we did and we got tired of answering the inevitable questions. Finally, we decided to give my parents an ultimatum. During this period, my fiancé had gone 2 or 3 times to see my dad. He walked him out after lecturing him on how unsuitable he was. To his credit, he was not violent. My mom kept up the pressure with phone calls and texts, warning him to find someone else.

I sent some relatives and family friends to appeal. They were so sternly cautioned that they regretted agreeing. One called and told me to elope. The other was so miffed at my mother’s tone he told us to damn the consequences. Another was bought over by my mom. She began to call me daily to forget the whole thing.

“The bible says children should obey their parents”, she said. “I am a mother, I know how they feel”

“Aunty, I sent you to beg for me. Now you’ve turned against me”, I cried.

“I know but your mother burst into tears on the phone. She said your dad doesn’t sleep at night. The disgrace will be too much”

“Disgrace? Is he a leper?” I wondered.

“You wouldn’t understand” she insisted.

I understood. Let me tell you, even a pastor we approached was afraid to speak to them. There was palpable tension in my house, you could slice it with a knife. I was losing my mind, fretting over the crack in our relationship. My siblings were on my side but, even they began to feel the pressure and begged me to do ‘something’ about it all. The word of God became my sustenance. I could not go without studying it any day as it emboldened me.

One day, I remembered how a lady shared a testimony of how her dad who opposed her marriage to a yoruba man finally gave in. The man collected the microphone during the Thanksgiving and said he opposed not on tribal grounds or whatever. While he was speaking, I felt God tap my shoulder.

He said, “That is how your dad will attend at your wedding”. Why was this important? You see, we had gone to our pastors and reported that my parents were becoming more belligerent rather than back down. I heard of a couple they wedded on a Friday in the church office. Subsequently, they had a reception for friends. I had always feared that we would have to elope or settle for a court wedding. While that is okay, I really desired the blessing of my pastors. These issues made me shed tears every night. I didn’t mind missing out on a long bridal train, aso ebi, numerous family attending, and more. What I wanted most was my pastor’s blessing.

Remember I used to be in the choir. You can imagine how many weddings I had sung at. For my own to be hurriedly done in a dinghy court, was too painful to bear. Pastor asked us what we wanted to do, after 1 and half years of pressure. She was so angry about the whole thing, insisting they had no scriptural ground. We told her we wanted to wed without their permission. She gave her okay, promising police protection on the day, if need be. I went home and told my people the wedding date but not venue. They raised hell before informing my siblings that all who attended were disowned.

My fiancé had a job but was no way close to being able to cater to 5 adults. I realized they might have to stay away. A different kind of pressure ensued. Planning a secret wedding, dealing with threatening phone calls, keeping a happy face for those who were not in the know, assuring my in laws that I would not back out, on and on. So many scriptures boosted my faith. “The curse causeless not come” Prov.26:2 and Num. 23:8. Jesus reassured me that I would not suffer any evil because I did not set out to rebel or hurt any one, I just wanted to marry the man I loved. Why was it difficult for anyone to accept?

Dad played a trump card. My in laws paid him a formal visit. While he did not threaten them, or wax violent, he told them in unmistakable terms, that we would never have his support. That shattered their confidence. My mother in law, was so angry, she said we should have a private ceremony but not expect her or my father in law. I understood how she felt but, her stubborn son would not listen. What was our confession?

1. My parents would give their consent before the set date.

2. They would be physically present.

3. My dad would give me away

4. There would be no altercation or distress

5. We would be blessed with children, houses, cars, and more afterwards to silence all nay sayers.

We confessed these daily, with quaking hearts and trembling knees,until our faith became unshakeable. I went on, ordering a bridal gown, we paid caterers, and more, while threats were hanging over our heads. My fiance planned to hire security to guard the reception venue.

1 week to the wedding day, I received a text from my dad who was in Scotland at a conference.Steeling myself for more threats, I clicked on it. The gist of it was that he had hired a lawyer to prosecute us (I wonder what for, Frances?), but God spoke to him that morning to forgive us. He asked us to postpone the wedding and invite my in laws to do the traditional rites. I could not believe my eyes! When I forwarded it to my fiancé, he called to ask if I was making it up. God had answered our prayers so suddenly.

The next issue was getting him to permit us to go ahead with the date already set as we had paid the vendors and invited guests, some of who did not know the story. It was to be a Friday wedding with a handful in my pastor’s office. Guests were to attend the poolside reception. Most assumed we just wanted an intimate wedding, not knowing what was hanging over our heads. 2 days before the wedding, I called my dad and pleaded with him to accept the date we had set as we could not move it. I offered that my in laws come the next day to do the rites and he agreed.

The day before the wedding, my fiancé and his family travelled to see my folk. Due to traffic, they arrived at about 10 or11pm. Friends who could not believe the miracle tried to restrain them. They felt my dad had something sinister planned. I called my sisters and they said my mom was cooking up a storm, whistling happily, and setting the table. That was all I needed to hear. No way they were still angry. The rites were done in my absence. I was called to give my consent on phone.

My mom started calling all her friends that night to attend the wedding the next day.

“Whose wedding? Why is it so sudden ?” they asked.

“Don’t bother about that. Just wear the aso ebi I mentioned”, she replied.

My in laws spent the night, after a hearty meal and a warm welcome. The next day, my mom stayedback to buy a lorry load of wedding gifts for me. I’m talking of washing machine, deep freezer, microwave, boxes of fabric, e.t.c. She arrived the reception in grand style with her colourfully dressed friends. My dad had come earlier and not only gave me away but signed the licence.

You can imagine the kind of tears I was shedding all day. To cap it all, my mom, (who is a fashionista), hugged me and said my gown was beautiful. Wow! God dazed me with surprises. This is just a summary as I cannot narrate it all.

Suffice it to say, God has kept all his promises. When we got married, my husband did not own a car, property, or have the best of jobs. Today, 5 years later, God has given us cars, property, businesses, jobs, 3 children, and all round comfort. We have enjoyed good health. Above all, our parents are in best of terms, with us and even with each other. I remember my father in law calling my mom on her birthday, before he went to be with the lord. There is no friction whatsoever. That’s the God we serve.

I leave you with my mantra. “IF GOD ASKED YOU TO DO IT, WHY DO YOU CALL. IT A RISK?” God bless you.

    Now i’m full out crying.. Wow! This is such a remarkable story…such trying times. Almost sounds like a movie plot… I’m thankful you&hubby scaled through it all…
    Victory is indeed sweet…
    Congratulations on God’s goodness&faithfulness. He’ll increase your greatness.
    Cheers to many more resplendent years Dr N.

      As in, I so laughed when I got to that point..you are posing the question to me eh Dr N?
      Well, since we have lawyers who want to make money at all costs, I suppose they could sue your husband for making you agree to what you don’t want under duress..evidence will be that you just cannot go against their wish after they’ve given you all they could, there must be something sinister at play here, which is a threat hanging over your head from the man!
      Haha!
      You could dispel all doubts by also giving evidence in your defence though…
      But still, it will be a suit bound to fail..the lawyer your dad hired will just chop his money clean mouth.lol

    Wow….just wow! The answer to your question at the end is that we are sometimes afraid to trust God. He is good but his ways are not always safe and comfortable (just ask Abraham!). At 10, 15, 20, 25 years anniversary (+ more), the testimony will be even sweeter and encourage more people that God is true to His Word and faithful. Thank you for sharing, sis.

    P.S – You guys had heart sha! Staying 9 years without parental consent and then planning a secret wedding. Kudos to you both for staying together then.

    P.P.S – Did your dad ever tell you how God turned his heart towards your hubby?

    wow! this is God at work. i salute your faith and courage (Dr N and Mr N :)))
    1 thing struck me: you clearly heard from God and that strengthened your faith! That was what kept the patriachs of old in their walk with Him. They heard God clearly! His word propels us to go above the ordinary and do the unimaginable. May we develop our faith seeing that He knows the end from the beginning and like He said: All things must work together for our good.
    I have a friend who has seen *wiiiinnn* because she must marry from her village. i’m sending her this post immediately!

    To say i was awed by the way God turned the situation around in your favour would be a great understatement. I was there, literally in the situation with you hoping for the best yet strongly determined to go on with that which holds true happiness for me (not minding that i will probably cry my eyes out on my long-anticipated wedding night), afterall it was God’s will that we be together (that was the defiant me there with you). But true to his promise that everything works together for our good, He did what he does best….True the saying that “He is not God because He works miracle, He is God and that’s why He works miracles”. I saw and see God at work in your life, I was richly blessed by this.

I just graduated from medical school, trained as a physiotherapist and i write too…i have always wondered how i will cope with work and improving myself as a writer cos i see myself as an amateur but on meeting you…i got encouraged and challenged too..this particular post was…i cant find the right words to describe it but honestly, you just won my award for the best female Christian/ medical blogger of the year..wish i can meet you in person..i have hurriedly shared this particular post and your supernatural birthing story with friends…thanks for using your gift, you could have hidden under the cover of your profession and busyness…thank you for accepting the gift of salvation and allowing God to use you…if you hadnt, the lives you have touched in so many ways through your write-ups and service may not have been recipients of such divine blessing..my sincere prayer is for God to bless you and your family, your career inclusive and may your influence horizon broaden! God bless you!!!

    Glory be to God. Despite knowing most of the story, reading still blessed me. Way to go Dr. N. I love your writing. Keep it going.

    Just found your testimony Dr N, really encouraging, our God is FAITHFUL! . Indeed, “IF GOD ASKED YOU TO DO IT, WHY DO YOU CALL. IT A RISK?”

    God bless your home more and more…. its almost time for another anniversary
