Anny & Daniel

A special kind of Love

Meet Anny and Daniel, an amazing young couple from Burundi and Denmark. They met seven and a half years ago in the wedding of Anny’s sister, where both were in the bridal team. During the reception, they started off a conversation that led into a friendship which blossomed into marriage four years later. Young as they are, Anny and Daniel share a special kind of love founded on principles and the fear of God. Get to know more about them and what they have to share from their experience.

What made you decide to spend the rest of your lives together?

~Anny: We were great friends from the word go. We clicked personality wise and on top of that he was very principled on what he wanted which I admired. He is handsome and most importantly he is God fearing, I would describe him as a man after God’s own heart.

~Daniel: Our values and chemistry aligned. Apart from liking her beauty, I got along with Anny with regards to her character, view on life, Christianity and many other things.

Based on your experience together, what are the most important traits/requirements for a successful marriage?

~Putting God at the centre. He is such a huge part of our life.

~Communication

~Honesty

~Trust

Any major set-backs/challenges you have overcome together? If any, what advice can you share from the experience?

We got engaged young and spent four good years learning about each other to understand our perspectives on life and Christianity. During these four years, we made a conscious decision to wait for marriage before being intimate with each other. It was not easy but we both knew this is what we wanted, to do things right according to our principles.

What is the one advice you can give to a soon to be married couple?

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and rely not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” There may be lots of challenges but always remember everything is possible if you put God first and just trust Him.

If you were to advice a single person on matters relationships and dating, what would you tell them?

Don’t lower your standards, even if you are eager to find your loved one, especially women. It is okay to have standards of who you want to spend the rest of your life with; someone who would complement you personality wise. Always stay true to yourself and don’t settle.

Do you celebrate valentines? If so, what is a typical valentine’s day for you?

We don’t put emphasise on valentine’s itself per se, rather we have a day during the week set apart for dating. We believe it’s important to keep dating even in marriage. On a typical date, we dress up and head out for something fun, something different from our usual schedule.

Anny and Daniel have graced the valentine’s couple series with a great reminder that we can stay true to our principles and views in life and like-minded people shall come along at the right time. Anny is also very passionate about giving back to her community and she shares this and other inspirational content together with Daniel on her youtube space @Anny Christella. Alternatively, you can find her on Instagram @Anny Christella1.
