It is no news, that famous couples do not last long together.
Blame it on the fame, the money or the authenticity of the love, whatever the case, it mostly becomes short-lived.
Which makes us really sad cos we love some of these guys together…
However, some couples have been able to withstand the test of time in their marriage.
Here is a list of 8 famous Nigerian couples who give us couple goals with their marriages.
1. Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva (m.1985)
Married since 1985, this famous Nigerian couple has been giving us couple goals for decades. With both having careers in Nollywood, it would not have been a surprise if work schedule or the media got in the way. However, both have been able to keep it together for so long and now are inspiring the rest of us!
100% couple goals or nah?
2. Patrick Doyle and Iretiola Doyle
Patrick and Iretiola Doyle have been married for 20+ years.
During an interview where they were asked how they keep their marriage going, the two said they don’t see themselves as Celebrities and are dedicated to making things work no matter what.
Hmm, I know I’m getting that jotter and pen cos I am taking notes…
3. Tunde Obe and Wunmi Obe (m.1998)
Say what you want about this couple, but one thing is for sure; they have withstood the test of time.
They seem to have the ‘how’ to make it work too. At the 3 thrones concert last week, Superstar Tiwa Savage asked how they have been able to make it work and they cited communication and allowing God to be the only third party in the marriage.
Those tips must definitely work, 18 years is no joke.
4. Joseph Yobo and Adaeze Yobo (m. 2010)
Many believed Joseph and Adaeze Yobo would not work and the fact that their marriage has been able to last longer than many predicted is amazing.
