Marry when you are only financially stable- Young Lady advises Men

“Tonny was young, loved and well-known by everyone at the university. I had my doubts and thought he would disappoint me and marry someone else,” says Margret Amongin Okalo.

As an adult, butterflies in your stomach, and a racing heartbeat are some of your body’s subtle clues that you are falling in love. But although this is the case for many couples, it was not so for Margret and Tonny Tumukunde who met as first-year law students and became very close friends. For Margret especially, there was a lot of doubt about Tonny’s intentions.

This is why from the beginning, Tonny set out to erase Margret’s doubts, always reminding her that he wanted her for a wife.

“Even on our first date, I was so sure she was the one and I told her so. I told her no one else would ever love her as I do,” he says, adding that from that day on, he made sure his words were always followed by actions.

“I was quick to apologise whenever I wronged her even if it meant apologising ten times a day. I would also give her some space and time to calm down,” he adds.

Falling in love

The love birds met on January 9, 2011, at Uganda Christian University in Mukono District. While other couples might meet in a lecture hall, it was magical for Tonny and Margret.
