“Nothing was easy, and sometimes she failed, and sometimes she thought that the fairy stories were right, that their must indeed be easier ways of living happily ever after; but defeat is a poor ending to any tale, so she kept trying.”
Who ever said that romantic fairytales only happened “once” per lifetime must be living under a rock!
Celebrities such as Tina Knowles, Letoya Luckett, and now Sole’ are proving otherwise. They’ve shown that there is love again after heartache. That, the moment we dare to give love a second chance could be the best decision of our lives. And most importantly, that we are entitled to a “happily ever after.”
We all know artist/actress Sole’ as being Ginuwine’s wife. The two married in 2003 and divorced in 2015 after being separated for a year. After a 12 year marriage most would have thrown in the towel and vowed to never get married again. Why? Because to some, giving someone such a huge part of your life only to end in heartache is a emotional disaster that they wouldn’t want to go through again.
But not Sole’!
On August 27, 2017, Sole’ married Professor Griff of the legendary group, Public Enemy!
According to Sole’, she and Griff reconnected in August of 2016 during lunch. Unbeknownst to her, their friendship would turn into something completely unexpected.
Just days prior to their nuptials, Sole’ took to Instagram with the following caption dedicated to her soon to be husband:
“August 11, 2017, today marked one year to the day @professorgrif and I reconnected and had lunch as friends. We had no clue what would ensue. At the time we had known each other for 27 years but he was always like my big brother. After that lunch though, something changed… and a beautiful plutonic friendship based on love and mutual respect, began blossoming into a beautiful, romantic relationship based on that foundation. Today, we celebrate that reconnection over lunch, we spent time offering prayers at the temple and exchanging rakhis. Traditionally, sisters tie a rakhi to their brothers’ wrist as a reminder of his duty to protect and honour his spiritual as well as brotherly obligations. They take a vow to protect them from harm and sisters pray for long life for their brothers. The thread tied on his wrist symbolizes that the brother must protect himself spiritually from the bondage of materialism. The brother protects the sister with his life and the sister shows respect and love in the form of worship. Rakhi signifies the bond of brothers and sisters, but can also be tied by a wife, daughter or mother for protection. We tied them on each other as a symbol of love, honor, respect and protection for one another… and offered these prayers to the Divine. #9 #twinflames #walking4seasons “
