The days when marriages were concluded only between people of approximately the same material and social status are long gone. And now any girl, if she wants, can marry even a prince, even a foreigner. The most important thing is, of course, love. Moreover, beautiful children are often born from interethnic marriages. An example of this is the couple Natalia and Jacob.
Natalia was born and raised in Izhevsk. Jacob came from Nigeria to Russia for education. Actually, the couple met at the university. At first, they were connected only by studying, and then they realized that there was something more between them.
Feelings overwhelmed the young people with their heads, and soon it became clear that everything would end with a wedding. However, there was a difficulty here. Jacob’s mom easily accepted the daughter-in-law, but Natalia’s parents, to put it mildly, were not thrilled.
Moving to Nigeria
The wedding has died down and it’s time for new important decisions. It was difficult for Jacob to build a career in Russia, so the couple decided to go to Nigeria, where the young man had good prospects. The red tape with the papers lasted for 9 months.
In Nigeria, they are wary of white people, they are considered not very hardworking and ready for treason. However, Jacob’s relatives were happy to accept his Russian wife.
The birth of a baby
Soon after, the couple had a baby. He was called by two names: ethnic and Americanized. Parents couldn’t wait to see what their child would be like.
Jago, that’s their son’s name, was lucky. He adopted the best features from his parents. In addition, he inherited Nigerian traditions and at the age of two is much more independent than his Russian peers.
A pleasant surprise
Natasha initially did not regret her move. After all, there was a loved one nearby. Now she has her own blog where she talks about her life.
Besides, Natasha was in for a pleasant surprise. It turned out that her husband was a prince and a descendant of a noble Nigerian family.
