    I guess we don’t deserve to know whether he is remarrying or been single all these while?

      God bless you for this question, Idak. I though the man was married. Can we know details of his marital life before Morenike Popoola? It would help us understand this better.

    They really look good, no, GREAT! together. I wish them a very happy and fulfilled married life. It does not matter if it’s their second marriages, what matters is that they’ve both found each other. We must begin to respect other people’s second chance at love. Sometimes even between two wonderful people marriage may not work. A marriage can end ‘sans drama’ because two people just slowly grew apart or changed over the years….love can die gently without bitterness and everyone deserves a chance to move on and be happy. Let’s not look for unnecessary negative drama when there’s actually none! To all the die-hard romantics out there, keep the fire alive. Everyone deserves a chance at true love. Happy Sunday, all.
