The poet and businessman shared pictures taken with his pretty wife-to-be and tagged her Facebook account. The lovebirds held their mobility canes as they struck loved-up poses together.
Raphael said she meets his criteria
According to Raphael, Marian met his criteria and is qualified. Describing her as a beautiful and athletic lady, Raphael said she is his best match. He said she gave her consent to the wedding.
“…Indeed, I found a beautiful, and an athletic blind lady today.
“Her name is Marian, and I consider her the best match with me. Marian and I have one thing in common: we are both blind, and as you can see in the attached pictures, the both of us are holding our guide Caines in our hands,” he wrote.
Raphael promises a tell-it-all
He added that their union would demonstrate that blind people can find love among themselves and get married as well.
He promised to release a video about how they met and asked people to give reviews about how they look together. In his words:
“So, sorry that I didn’t invite any of you to my marriage ceremony. This marriage is an emergency one, as Marian and I just met for the first time today and agreed to marry each other.
“Tomorrow, I shall drop a video where you will see how Marian and I met and you will equally understand what brought us together.”

Man marries blind lady
Meanwhile, THETALK.NG previously reported that a man had tied the knot with a blind lady he met at his friend’s event.
The couple tied the knot in a beautiful church wedding in Kisumu, Kenya.
Caren, a visually impaired mother of one, met her husband in 2019, and they dated for close to two years before getting married.
Caren revealed that she was the only child and lived with her relatives most of her childhood because her parents worked in a different country.
