We had 2 ceremonies; the traditional one in Makindu on the 12th and the registered wedding on the 13th. I had no idea what can change in 13 years. We lost pregnancies, we lost his dad to cancer, mum had a stroke. We became parents and so so much more! There’s so much growth that occurs when you face the ups and downs of life together. We understand each other more. It’s not that we don’t fight, we do. But we also laugh a lot. There’s no secret or trick in staying married… I wouldn’t say there’s a method. So many of you have messaged to ask me.. but honestly.. there’s no one way in making a marriage work. You need to find your ebb and flow, you need to know yourself but most importantly you need to be happy… Happy Anniversary @raj_sehmi 2665 - Pinky shares the bad and better times of her 13-year-old marriage
