This Mad Couple Has Been Married For 22 Years | Read Their Inspiring Story.
A man, Olaide Olakiitan Oluwayemisi, has revealed how he was inspired by the love story of a mentally unstable couple who were married for 22 years with 3 children. Read the story in full below;
Samade was a graduate of applied physics from a Nigerian university, Nsukka before he ran mad. Samade was a fan of every villager for his abilities and talents. Abilities and talents madness could not snatch away from him.
His dancing steps and melodious voice cannot be ignored by passersby. He sings and dances without musical instruments yet those who listened and watched him wished he was not mad for the ecstasy he gave to them.
His love life and marriage to Cynthia, another madwoman in the village was an envy of many couples. Samade and Cynthia had lived together in a self-built self-contained under the popular bridge at Orile junction for 22 years. There were several times the villagers saw them quarreling but no one knew how they settled their differences.
Unfortunately, Samade and Cynthia do not speak the same language. While Samade was from my village, Cynthia was from the Eastern part of the country. They lived together for 22 years without a long separation. How they consented to live as a couple and had 3 children is a riddle no one is yet to solve.
They lived under the same roof in quote, they had no source of income other than begging, they have no common sense, lacked counselors, never attended marriage classes, yet they lived together for 22years uninterrupted. Samade and Cynthia were the Romeo and Juliet of their world, a perfect match to a fault. Mad but proud of each other and their union.
They were seen severally kissing, hugging, caressing, and sharing romantic moments in the village. They shared all things in common, they bathed together, played together, ate together, entertained their guests together, fought together, smiled together, etc. Samade and Cynthia were the epitome of uncoordinated romantic folks. If they were not mad, they would have won the best couple of the year’s award.
The lesson in Samade and Cynthia’s romantic story is this; “If the insane can sustain a romantic relationship, the sane should be able to do better”. Unfortunately, most sane couples with common sense cannot stay together as husband and wife for 10 years without divorce or separation. Yet they have access to the good things of life.
They have good shelter, good food, sound education, spiritual help, finance etc.
