Second chance! Nigerian single mother of two remarries four years after the death of her husband (photos)

Dr. Ejiro Beulah Izeze remarried four years after the death of her husband and father of her two children. Ejiro and Godwin Onoro tied the knot on June 7th, at Oginibo Town in Ughelli-South LGA of Delta State.  


Her brother, Comrade Reuben Rume Izeze, Member representing Ughelli-South State Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, posted the photos thanking their first in-laws, the Orseers for looking after their daughter and sister "all these years of locust"

Read the post and see more photos below...
"Indeed, no matter how long the "wahala" lasts, JOY is gonna come in the morning"  he wrote.
Her friend, Nkechi Ika Bianca shared her story to inspire Nigerian single mothers, widows and divorcees. Read below:
"Let me tell you a short story about my friend.
Dr. Ejiro Beulah Orseer was married, but she became widowed some years ago. She had two daughters with her late husband, who died 4 years ago, while they were still married.

She recently got married again to a man whom I don't know personally, but looks to me like a good and gentleman.
Some days ago, she told us how she's having butterflies in her tummy. You know that feeling of true love.
Why am I writing this?

Firstly, I want to say a big congratulations to my sweetheart and Facebook friend, Dr. Ejiro Beulah Orseer. A woman whom I met on Facebook but have come to love and admire.
I hope your happiness increases in your new home. I hope you never stop being happy.
I sought Ejiro's permission to make this post.
To all ye single mothers, most especially the ones who still want to get married and/or find lifetime committed companions, this is for you.
Ours is a society where single parents, most especially single mothers are made to seem like "rejected goods". And I'm trying in my own little way to change such narrative.
You have been told that single mothers do not deserve great men, if at all they deserve to have male companions.
This belief even makes some men think they are doing single mothers a favour by dating or marrying them.
Listen my dear sisters, and get these into your heads.
No man, and I repeat that NO MAN is doing you a favour by dating or marrying you. Do NOT date or marry any man who gives you the impression that he is doing you a favour by being with you.
There are several great men out there who will love you GENUINELY even as a single mother in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and older.
Many single mothers that I know got remarried to VERY RESPONSIBLE MEN.
Earlier this year, I wrote about my aunty who got married in the late 80s, fled from her abusive husband in the early 90s, and got remarried in the early 2000.
Her first daughter (only child from first marriage) is a doctor currently doing her NYSC, the second is currently a student at Unilag, and the other two are still in secondary school.
Nora Oma Patrick got married this year, a while after she left her abusive first marriage. She has two children from her first marriage.
Gillian Chikaodi Nwangumah who also has two children from her previous marriage remarried last year to a cute dude.
I can go on naming them.
So.....
Never lose your self-esteem due to loss of spouse or divorce or even because you are approaching 35 years of age.
Never remain in an abusive relationship because you don't want to be termed divorcee and single parent.
Don't settle for ass holes just because you think no man will love you again.
Save up some money. Buy nice clothes, buy a makeup kit, have a makeover from head to toe, get your grove back, set your standards and BE VERY SELECTIVE.... yes, you heard me, I said be selective.
The chances of second time love for women are very much higher than the Nigerian society make you believe.
*-*-*-*
This post is specifically to inspire Nigerian single mothers, widows and divorcees.
I will find time tomorrow to write for single women who are in their 30s and older

Linda, the article you posted was not written by her brother but Nkechi Bianze on her Facebook page. I guess the brother just shared Nkechi's post. Note where the celebrant was referred to as a Facebook friend in the write up and not sister. Please credit appropriately.

I am crying as am reading this. It gives me hope. I love my kids so much but I am lonely. It's not easy to be a widow. I ve tried finding love but was taken advantage of a couple of times.I have made mistakes which I take responsibility of. I have been celebrate for 2 years now. I dont trust men. I am hoping on God for love. Just turned 43 this year. Have been a widow for almost 14 years. Now. Sometimes I want to give up on love.

Love stories like this! My son will be 8 soon, I think it's time to give love a chance so help me God!

That's great. But was it really necessary to put his entire family and work life out here for everyone to know about? You obviously know him up close, and you're really not doing him any favours by being this brazen with your display of knowledge of his family life. I implore you to edit if you can. God bless you.

Please, don't. There's light at the end of the tunnel. I imagine it can't be easy on you but I trust God to sort you out beautifully like He did for these two. And please, don't beat yourself up for making the mistakes you made. You're only human and prone to mistakes but it doesn't make you any less than what God says you are. Stay hopeful and let God bring you your very own man. God bless you.

Linda, that Nk got Ejiro's permission to post this doesn't mean you also have one to share it.
Next time ask permission, not everyone is looking for their stories to trend. Some people just want to celebrate quiet Aunty.

Love will find you at the right time madam,you need not give up. I understand quite well what it feels like, etc to be lonely especially when the kids are grown and need to have their own life too. Just be happy, package your self and trust me,love will find you when and where you least expect.
