Well, a couple had to wait for 39 good years to realize that dream!

Sixty-three-year-old Mr. Blankson Dumehasi and Madam Margaret Tetteh, a sixty-year-old trader at Makola, finally tied the knot in a colorful ceremony on Easter Sunday after being together for 39 years!

The ceremony which took place at the Ebenezer Down branch of the Lighthouse Chapel International at Dansoman was awash with joyous congregants in white attires. The ceremony was officiated by resident Lady Pastor Phebemary Adodo-Samani and visiting Rev. Alexander Attiogbe.

This love story all started at Bowiri Takrabe in the now Oti Region where the couple first met. And they have been inseparable ever since.

Not even distance could separate them. When Madam Margaret relocated to Accra, determined Mr. Dumehasi continually sent her love letters declaring his love for her.

After a while, the couple got married traditionally in their early twenties and have never looked back.

Three children and six grandchildren later, the couple decided it was time to have a white wedding.

Mrs. Dumehasi attributed the long wait to the man and their parents but did not give details.

When asked what has kept the marriage going this long, the couple says they see themselves more as siblings now and that they do everything together including cooking. Mr. Dumehasi describes his wife as his sweet mother who helps him in everything. And Mrs. Dumehasi says her husband has never been wicked towards her.

The journey had not been without challenges though. The major one being health related. For example, Mr. Dumehasi had to quit his job at the Rockstars Company Limited at Kantamanto in 2014 following doctor's advice. And Mrs. Dumehasi was twice admitted at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

In spite of this, Mr. and Mrs. Dumehasi advice the youth to learn from them, be prayerful and listen to their wives and everything would be just fine.
