Armliat and Brenda had been neighbours for a long time; sharing meals and often spending a lot of time together. With time, their friendship turned into romantic feelings for each other, making the journey into marriage easier.
When Armliat Aineamaani, a transmission technician and Brenda Chemashak, an administrator at St John’s Church in Kirinya, Wakiso District, met, all they needed was to start a friendship and be there for each other. However, over time, a deeper connection was formed.
“I had always wanted to marry someone who knew my weaknesses and loved me the way I am. Marrying a friend meant marrying someone who would not try to change anything about me,” says Brenda.
