GOD IS GOOD.......I Found Love & got Married after 50 Years -.For the First Time

How it happened: “I wanted a marriage that was an equal partnership, one in which I could pursue my passions and career as CEO and co-founder of The Halo Group with my husband’s support. However, I was attracted to traditional men who had typical expectations of a wife, and I knew any of them would try to change me. I met Jack when I was 46—at a wake! He was sexy, smart, kind and, best of all, comfortable in his own skin, so my success wasn’t threatening. He has three kids, and I didn’t want to force myself into the family, so we waited a while to get married.”
Her advice: “You can’t live for others’ expectations. Make your single life as exciting as possible: Take risks, have fun, see the world and pamper yourself. If I wanted to buy someone or myself a gift, I did. If you just live your life, it’ll happen. And what my grandmother says about love is true: What doesn’t happen in years, happens in minutes.”

How it happened: “I wanted a marriage that was an equal partnership, one in which I could pursue my passions and career as CEO and co-founder of The Halo Group with my husband’s support. However, I was attracted to traditional men who had typical expectations of a wife.

How it happened: “When I was younger, I thought I'd be married by my 20s. As I got older, I started to realize it doesn't happen for everyone that way and marriage isn’t going to make you a better person or fix any problems. I met John when I was 38 and he was 28; I’d taken on a second job where he worked. We were friends for a while, so when I fell in love with him, the age difference didn’t matter. We ended up dating for a long time. Then, getting married felt right.”
Her advice: “Love yourself first; that shines through. You have to be happy with who you are before you can share yourself with someone else—and accept that life happens differently for everyone.”

50-Year-Old RCCG Deaconess Who Has Never Been Married Weds In Abuja

An ordained Deaconess of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Omolayo Oyeyemi Oyewole who has never been married, got married to a widower, Pastor Mike Gbade Adetutu, in Abuja, over the weekend.
Before she finally tied the nuptial knot, the 50-year-old Oyewole got involved in religious activities and was ordained a Deaconess.
 


How it happened: “Everyone told me that I didn’t put myself out there. As I got older, I lost my shyness and tried Match.com and J-Date. I kept saying to myself, ‘You just never know.’ Nine months into Match (and after dates with 10 to 15 other guys), Rod messaged me. I liked him from the moment I met him. He wasn’t like the typical guys I met—not phoney or ‘hey, look at me.’ We’re different religions, but our values are the same. And his grown kids were happy to see him happy; they always made me feel welcome. After dating for a year, he moved in to my house. Four months later we got married.”
Her advice: “You get discouraged. It’s normal. When you get over 50, you say, ‘The chance of this happening is slim to none.’ But it happens. Try online dating and volunteering. Put yourself into places where you may meet somebody. Ballroom dancing is a wonderful way to meet people. Bars, in my experience, aren’t the place to meet someone.”

How it happened: “My best friend met her fiancé online and convinced me to try online dating when I was 47. I was skeptical, but gave Matchmaker.com a try—if only to find a date for her wedding. I liked the site because it asked unusual questions, like who’s your favorite superhero. I didn’t have high expectations, but after a month, Kevin contacted me. He spoke about himself and asked pointed questions about me instead of, ‘I like your picture; let's get together.’ I knew he was the one when we returned from our first overnight trip: I felt lonely without him. He asked me to marry him six months later.”
Her advice: “My best friend was my online dating coach. She always said, ‘Remember, they’re kids in a candy store,’ referring to many of the men who weren’t actually looking for a mate. If you have a pre-determined list of qualities for the person you want to end up with, forget it! There’s a good chance of him being nothing like you thought.”
