  1. Mwanaume ni mfalme ndani ya nyumba. Umuheshimu. 
  2. Usiache maadili mema niliyo kufundisha. 
  3. Uliokuta kwa hio mji usiyabadilishe. Ukiwakuta wanatembea na kiatu kimoja, wewe vua chako na utupe na utemee na kiatu kimoja. Ukiwakuta wanavaa gunia, haya vaa gunua manake umependa na hilo ni chagua lako.

       4. Mwanaume hajui sorry, kwa hivyo usitarajie sorry kutoka kwa mwanaume

       5. Usijaribu kuelezea weakenesses zake kwa watu wengine.

       6. Ukifika Butere, nataka uwe mfano mwema kwa family ya Brian

How Brian and Mariam met

The couple met in 2004 during the music festivals at the KICC, they had a quick interaction, didn’t exchange numbers and went their separate ways. The groom wrote the bride letters in high school professing his admiration. They lost touch after high school but later reconnected in 2009. The groom traveled to Mombasa to surprise her. It was his first time ever going to Mombasa and Mariam was shocked and that's when she started developing feelings for him.

Later Brian went to study abroad. The relationship has been long distance, for the most part, which proved to be a challenge for them. Fearing Mariam would give up on the relationship Brian set Mariam up by making her plan her own proposal without knowing, she thought she was planning her friend's proposal only to be surprised with the groom who had flown back home, to just propose.
