Vivian and Sam West are a veritable definition of a celebrity couple. The two who got married in a traditional ceremony a few months back have been serving up relationship goals for many. Yes, the simple goal of just reaching the altar (sarcasm).
Sam recently shared some anecdotes about what it takes to have a successful relationship. He wrote on his Facebook page:
“Sam No relationship is all sunshine, but a man and a woman in love can share one umbrella and survive the storm. Relationships last long because two people made a choice to keep it, fight for it and work for it.”
The two remind me of other Kenyan couples who are trying to make their marriage last despite the pressures and stresses from the outside world. My question is whether they have what it takes to have a relationship last this long?
These are the couples they should look to when they need encouragement:
Wahu and Nameless
Couples like Wahu and Nameless are examples for this young couple to emulate.
The two have been married for 13 years and have been blessed with two beautiful children. Could Sam and Vivian last this long?
Mercy Masika and David Muguro
Another couple that amazes us with their longevity is Mercy Masika and her husband David Muguro. The two have been together since 2008 and have had two beautiful children:
Frasha and Wife Meg
Frasha aka Fred Amisi has been married to his wife Meg, for 16 years and they have been blessed with 3 beautiful children, Shirleen 14-years, Esther 12-years, and Emmanuel 3-years. 16 years!
Wyre the Love child and wife Hanifa
Wyre the Love Child and his wife Hanifa. The two got married in 2008 and have a son who is seven years of age.
Allan Kiuna and Kathy Kiuna
This power-couple are celebs in their own right. They might not be musicians but their reach and influence on the masses is remarkable. Pastor “Dad” and “Mom” as they are referred to by their congregants have been married for 24 years.
They and have 3 children: Vanessa who is 27 years, Steph is 22 Jeremy, 17, is in high school.
Can Sam and Vivian emulate this famous couples and have a happily ever after marriage? Only God knows.
