Nna, the story on how my parents met is a bit sketchy. Stemmed from a tragic fire incident that engulfed some of my mother's belongings. And this was in the 60's or so, when female education in Nigeria was not given that much of a priority. So, my father chipped in financially, and love blossomed. They went on strong for 30 years before they passed away. And guess what? My grandma told me these stories, and my dad (unaware of my knowledge) repeated the same story to me. I really wished I had dug deeper into it, it is one of those things that I really miss not inquiring from them, likewise doing an extensive search on my genealogy.

abridged version:

my parents are from the same place, my moms family compound is within walking distance from my dad and her elder brothers where his friends.  They remained friends through primary school, secondary school, lost contact when my dad moved to the US to attend college in the late seventies, my mother was just finishing her degree at ABU  and  was in london on vacation.  A friend of a friend  had come to the US from london, met up with my dad at a party they started talking about females and my mom's name popped up in the conversation and if he (my dad) knew she was engaged to a boy from there place, according to my dad the friend starts saying how good mommy looked, that she had finished college and so on.  My dad then decides to write her a letter "just to say hi and long time", but my mother doesnt reply for like 3months one day out of the blue my dad recieves a card in the mail and its from my mom.  He tells her he will be in naija and like to see her and they have been together for the last 29 years.
