    Congrats Adaure, may God bless your union but pls permit to challenge the double standards. Why is it that so many people praise black girls for marrying white guys (e.g Adanna Ohakim and now Adaure) but insult black men for marrying white women (claim they are self-hating)? You guys should answer o!! Anyway my view is that people should be allowed to love whoever they wish, love knows no race!

      plz go and sit all the way DOWN! statistics show that black women are the least of any race to marry outside their race. so it is uncommon for a black woman to marry anyone but a black man. if they dont find black men they usually age out of the marrying process. black men on the other hand are the largest of ANY RACE OF MEN to marry outside. these are statistical FACTS on google . so please educate yourself! thank you

      my dear, becos whether we like it or not, men ultimately take the decision. W
      omen have to wait to be asked, so most marriages are predicated on the fact that the MAN actually wanted it in the first place

      Because black men in America will make videos saying how much they hate black American women. They will choose an average or even ugly white girl over a beautiful darkskin girl. But this does not relate to Africans though. Majority of African men even in America will go back to Africa to get married. On the other hand black women do not belittle black men in videos in order to get with white men. A black woman will choose a black man any day over any other race just like African girls love African boys soooo much. Na me and my Igbo boy someday ooo. So that’s the issue in America…

    @Sunshine are you for real?
    The story of Adanna and David has inspired a lot and mended broken relationships and marriages that i personally know.

    In my mind i want more of adannas cos they have a genuine love and respect for each other.

    Congrats Adaure!
