My name is Favour, I am 26 years old. This is a story of how I was disowned by my father because I married a poor man, little did he knew that this would happen.
Being an only daughter, my parents made sure I lack nothing. Where my parents stopped, my three brothers made sure I got whatever I wanted. Enough about my family, let’s get down to the main story. I met John when I was coming from work and the moment I saw him, I knew he was the one for me. John was a street hustler, he does all kinds of work. The day I saw him, he was working as a mechanic and he had grease all over his body. It did not bother me that he wasn’t buoyant, after all my parents were rich. To me, it was love at first sight.
I went back to him the next day and initiated a conversation because I knew he would not speak considering my background.
We got talking and I got to know many things about him. I found out that John was a graduate but could not get a job so he decided to do menial jobs to keep body and soul together. He was fun to be with and it made me love him me.
Our friendship grew to the extent that we can’t go a day without seeing each other. Three months after we became friends, John confesses his love for me and asked me to be his girlfriend. I was so happy and I couldn’t wait to be his wife. My parents and siblings were not in support of my relationship with John, they tried to talk me out of the relationship but I paid a deaf ear to them. My father threatened to disown me if I marry him. My siblings were in support of my dad’s decision to disown me, my mom was the only one who stood by me.
Three months later, he proposed to me and I accepted. When I shared the news with my family, my father reminded me of his threat to disown me should I get married to john, but my mind was already made up it was him or no one else. As always my mom gave her support, and that was enough to keep me going.
John and I got married two weeks later. My father kept to his words, he disowned me. He made sure my brothers cut ties with me too. I cried for days but my husband kept encouraging me to stay strong and that all would be well.

Luckily they were looking for a manager to run one of the companies. My husband was placed on a monthly salary of 800 thousand with a house, and a car.
As I am writing this story my husband and I are expecting our second child. We are proud owners of 3 houses and 5 cars. My father thought we couldn’t survive without him but God proved him wrong. As for my father, he came to beg for forgiveness after he heard what happened. We have forgiven him but I will never forget the lessons he taught me,
1) That we should never put our trust in humans because they can disappoint us at any time.
2) That we should trust in God always for it is only him that knows our heart desires
3) That we should follow our hearts no matter what people think or say.
4) lastly, there is nothing God cannot do. Bare your heart to him and he will see yo through your struggles.
