After waiting 30 Years for Mr. Right, this Gorgeous 60-Year Old Bride has gotten her Happy Ending!



The sweet story of a new bride, Sarah, has been trending on social media since yesterday.

Sarah is a 60-Year old bride who waited 30 years for “Mr. Right”. She never compromised on what she wanted and two years ago, her Mr. Right walked into her life.

He proposed in 2016 and yesterday the couple got married.

The bride’s wedding dress vendor had quite an interesting story to share about meeting Sarah.

She wrote:

60 years old and a first time bride, as in she’s never been married…Dang! She looks good at 60!!….#goodgenes #healthyliving…I remember the first time we met and she told me her age…I was like #hollymolly!!! #abasi mbok…..#unbelieveable ……she went on to tell me how she’s been waiting for ‘Mr. right’ since when she was in her 30’s and he never came. And so two years ago, he finally appeared and proposed in 2016 …..#God is good…#delayisnotdenial. My dearest aunty Sarah…I celebrate with you and may God bless your union…. from @bridesnmoreikeja…. #itsnevertoolate….. more pictures of our youngest and latest bride in town coming

      BN, marketing it like ‘her life is now complete, she’s been taken off the shelf’. Is it not as much of an achievement for the man as it is for her?

    Wtf? How on earth is that woman 60?

      February 5, 2017 at 2:49 pm

      Maybe because she is not filled with hate for Nigerians – her people. Hate. It has a way of eating up ones essence. Hahaha hahaha!

      My dear, you are constantly insulting nigeria and Nigerians on this platform. Your comments are filled with such vitriol that I wonder how you are able to keep at it for so long. Week in week out. You see hate is poisonous and it eventually catches up on you.

      Marrying @ 60. I’m 30, and already feeling the heat of late marriage. I can only imagine the emotional pain this lady have been through all these years.

      This delay is certainly denial cos it has denied her of the joy of birthing her own children. Even if she is able to conceive at 60, she start changing diapers when her mates are already grand parents. Unless, marriage is not on the cards for you, late marriage is no good. Our society doesn’t even help matter, they will shame your spinsterhood.

      The odds are against women in our society. So as a woman, work on yourself: your character. And pray too, so enemy of your destiny will not use juju to keep you unmarried. Yes, Africans attach so much importance to marriage, thats why wicked people go as far as using voodoo to prevent people’s marriage

    She looks very very good for 60, Congratulations to them. May God bless their union

      you know the stress that comes with marriage can age you very quickly… LOL

    • purplieciousbabe

      February 6, 2017 at 2:20 pm

      As in..
      She does look older though. Perhaps early 40s – mid 40’s.
      My Mum is about to turn 60. Whopp! She looks young too despite illness and the stress she has been through. Not one single wrinkle on her face. I admire her genes.

      Back to the lady, whilst I am happy and so proud of her.
      I wonder if if she did not settle after all? I mean dont we all settle at some point? whether we see all the true colours or not? Perhaps the only difference some have better qualities than others? I am just wondering.

      The other thing, as much as people claim delay is not denial etc. I highly doubt anyone would consciously choose to be married at 60? or have babies in late age e.g. Sarah.
      I dont think its a choice we choose thus I struggle to celebrate the ‘delay is not denial’? Perhaps I am wrong.

      Congratulations to both of them. Happiness and good health xxx

    Haha everyone asking how she can be sixty… no man or kids stressingber out that’s how. Now she is marri d come back in 10 years and see how the experience will have aged her 😀

    • Favour

      February 6, 2017 at 7:12 pm

      @uranon, no man or kids stressing her is the most insensitive things to say, just appreciate her beauty, because emotional stress and sarcastic comments from different sources, would age her. Not only that, at some point in life you need a partner and loneliness may kick in if you don’t dedicate yourself to church and charity.

    For most people who look good for their age, if you squint well enough you can kind of tell. I’ve done all kinds of squinting and she doesn’t look close to 60. God bless her!

    February 5, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    She must have issues rooted deep within cos how can she say she didn’t find Mr right till 60yrs? Is she perfect herself? She obviously rejected a lot of men because she thinks too highly of herself. Cmon, no man is perfect but there must be 1 in 30yrs that met at least 70% of her incredible high standard. So this her husband now is the perfect 1 abi? Lmao. Ladies plsss don’t copy this woman before u will wait till 100yrs old.

      February 5, 2017 at 4:34 pm

      so marrying after 21 is a bad thing? Godforbid someone like you who thinks the goal is to just settle with anyone even if you’re not TRULY in love, just so you can marry early. Look at how you ng she looks, if she married one stressful man you think she’d look this young?

    • A Real Nigerian

      February 5, 2017 at 4:36 pm

      What an exceptionally foolish comment.
      Did she say anything about perfection?
      Mr Right ≠ Mr Perfect.
      She chose not to settle for less or succumb to pressure.
      You are actually the one with deep-rooted issues since you have a problem understanding very basic concepts.
      Let’s just hope that it won’t take you 30 years to have sense.

    • Adunnie

      February 5, 2017 at 6:56 pm

      Can’t you tell you sound rather foolish??? So because someone fits 70% of your criteria they are meant to be your spouse??? Not every boyfriend or girlfriend that is good to you or amazing is meant to be your spouse. Your bimbo of a brain couldn’t assimilate that the use of the word “Mr right” in this scenario means the bone of her bones and the flesh of her flesh, a.k.a HER OWN HUSBAND… better to be married at 60 and have a blissful marriage till the end of your life than to marry at 20 and live most part of your life in sorrow and pain. I have an aunt who married wrong at a young age.. Almost 24 years now if not more, her husband hardly comes home, he neither speaks nor touches her and get this they’ve never had a child. Isn’t it better to be single to stupor till God brings your OWN… Marriage is no joke, its a different ball game entirely…Even those who married their own spouse can testify to that how much more those who married the wrong spouse..
      This is a very inspiring story.. Such a beautiful bride who looks nothing like her age. The peace of God is truly amazing… May you have a wonderful and blissful married life. Delay indeed is not denial. I hope this story inspires those who are getting tired of waiting on the Lord. He will never put his own to shame.

      Haba Mimi, Shame on you and your horrible judgemental comment. Do you even know her? Do you know her life experience? Instead of rejoicing with her you’re being bitchy. Shame on you. May you or any female in your family never be tested. May your tests not become an avenue for random strangers to mock you.

      Life happens and i can never blame anyone for their trials because only God knows what anyone goes through. I wish her loads of happiness. It is not how long but how well.

    February 5, 2017 at 4:36 pm

    I don’t get what she meant by waiting for Mr right since she clocked 30years? Did something happen to her before 30 that made her to wait till she clocked 30 before waiting for Mr right ?

    #Wehdonema, how can 30 yrs be long, when eternity or till death do us apart is the real one chance. Congrats on your choice of groom, he must be right for you to have taken this bold step at this time. Wonderful that while you were in the waiting room, God perfected you, and the groom he sent your way. What we each do in the various “waiting rooms” of your lives – this is our testimony. #radiant #bride #bridgegroom #exceedingly #abundantly #foundinyou

    If I were to guess her age based on these pictures, I would guess 42-45. She looks so good men…. May God bless her & her new home. I pray for all of us positively waiting & hoping for one blessing or the other, we shall all celebrate soon. AMEN.

    SHE is happy. congrats to the lady but how did you ladies twist that to #never settle gang? she was “waiting” to meet “mr right” for 30 yrs meaning marriage HAS ALWAYS been on her mind it just didn’t happen.
    Babes see things like this and twist it to their own lives/meaning.
    Chicks congratulate dis mama but chastise Dbanj, and Banky W….

    Please dont hate on US guys who settle down and marry at 40-50 TO YOUNGER WOMEN because they dont want to settle down with the wrong babe.

    And she looks 60! i dont know what you people are seeing. my mother is 72 and looks younger than her

    Is this her Mr. Rights first Mrs. right as well? Or is he someone’s Mr. Right turned wrong?

  28. Keeping it real

    February 5, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    Why was her age displayed sef? Whose business is it?? I know pastors wives that are way older than their husbands and they don’t talk about it on the altar but marriage counsellors make life difficult for you if you are trying to do same , in the same church! Happy she found her happy ending but damn, I wouldn’t have wanted to know her age. Not anybody’s business, but trust churches to count this as ‘our church testimony’ as a selling point.
    My point, keep private things private. Not all testimonies should be shared with the www. I know a Bishop’s struggles and testimonies that never made it to the www or altar. Wisdom is profitable to direct…
    Congrats lady. Welcome aboard!!!

    I don’t believe she’s 60 though, looks more like a 38-45 year old…I saw the picture and thought it was a father of the bride with his daughter. Black don’t crack for real. May God bless her marriage…

  32. LOL

    February 5, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    Lovely pics of bride and groom. Bride looks so good for her age.
    Don’t know how I would feel about one of my wedding vendors sharing ‘My testimony’ on social media though!
    Unprofessional and wrong on all levels.
    Social media…where do we draw the line?

    I just feel there is more to this story than the media is telling us. Obviously they didn’t want to mention but how can a lady just find her Mr. Right at 60? I dont think GOD is mean enough to give a woman Mr. Right at a menopausal age-not sure. she must have dated and been jilted or family curse on an innocent lady that is now broken or attitude issues or something. I wish I could know more and learn from her apart from what media is painting. But all the same. I CAN IMAGINE HER JOY. congrats ma!!

    why is the focus on the woman only? like it is such an achievement for her alone? and this is what has women yearning for and ending up in wrong marriages. The man looks pretty advanced himself and praise God for bringing him a wife in his old age, whether first or second or whatever. The caption could have read, couple finds love in golden years. I mean danm!

    February 7, 2017 at 12:54 pm

    A first marriage at 60 is a delay that’s almost as good as a denial. 30+ years of not having sex and companionship. While we congratulate her, let’s not be too religious about it
