Jeremiah and Sarah Kibuuka Kasule got married at a very young age. They went through all the phases of young love and were both patient enough to let it grow to the point of wanting to marry each other. They shared their inspiring story with us.
“I met my husband at Uganda Christian University in first year, second semester. I always wanted to be part of a choir, so when my friend asked me to escort her there, I found it fun and decided to join permanently. The fact that I have always feared people, I tend to just walk straight to where I am supposed to sit. So, I did not see this guy in choir, yet he later told me that he saw me on the very first day I joined choir.
The first time I personally saw him was at community worship. The preacher said something funny, and a stranger seated in front of me looked back and joked with my friend about the topic. I did not laugh with them, I just smiled and let it be. I had left my phone in my hall of residence, so you can imagine my shock when I went back I found his message. The audacity angered me a bit. The next time I saw him, he was with my friend’s boyfriend and I did not want to greet him.”
“He bought me a glass of juice when I had exam fever one morning, and since then, we became friends. I honestly did not find him attractive initially. I just found him nagging. But when I later got to know him personally, I realized he sang in the choir and also worked part time in the IT laboratory. I used to go spend time in his laboratory, watching movies, until he one day declared his intentions for me.” Sarah narrates. Click to read more…
