Wanjiru Njiru: I prayed for my husband’s relationships to fail
YouTuber Wanjiru Njiru has, in her latest podcast with husband Ben Kariuki alias Ben Cyco, revealed how the couple broke up several times owing to different challenges.
In the podcast dubbed ‘The Joy Ride’ podcast, which the couple launched recently, and co-host, the travel and lifestyle vlogger disclosed how she was constantly heartbroken by her husband before he picked up his act and started treating her right.
“We met 11 years ago. There was a spark between us but Ben quickly shut it down. He wanted to be a free bird. After he quickly squashed it like a fly on the wall, we morphed into very good friends. We became good friends for a very long time. Somewhere along the way, I think our paths reconnected because we both got out of relationships at the same time. But what is not very well known is that after we reconnected and had started developing a relationship, Ben felt that the relationship he was in before me had not properly ended. So he felt the need again to squash me, and that ended again quickly. So we broke up again,” said the content creator.
Inspired by questions from their fans, the couple got to share their responses to the questions regarding their relationship before marriage and the transitions they have had leading up to today.
“He got into another relationship for a period of one week, and then after one week, he came back again. He broke up with me, went back to that other lady, then came back to me. All in a span of one week,” recalled Ms. Njiru. “In our initial break up, I remember he was nearby and I invited him to come home and have some juice and he actually came in and had some juice. Imagine you’ve been dumped and your ex comes over to your place to have juice,” she added.
The YouTuber further revealed that after the second break up, she took some time to heal saying, “After that breakup, I didn’t date anybody but I was making fervent prayers to the Lord for, first of all, my heart because I felt bad that Ben had dented our friendship. So I needed healing from that.”
Ms. Njiru added that during that healing period she was invested in prayer, and she asked God to break her future husband’s relationship at the time and trace his way to her. “Ladies let me give you a tip. If he is stuck in another relationship, you just need to go to the Lord with one fervent prayer and He hears. My prayer was that if my future partner is in a relationship, God will end that relationship and he will come running into my arms. I had that feeling that Ben and I were not over.”
