The Ghanaian actor also shared the strategy they used to fight against obstacles us a team. He said the most important question during hard times is to ask yourself if you still want this.

Adjetey said sometimes they did feel like giving up especially after being childless with the pressures of society weighing them down, but they still found the strength in each other. 

Gathering from his story, he mentioned that his marriage was not without fights. And he cited that the biggest fight he had with Elorm was when she was pregnant. According to him, this fight was supposed to be the deal breaker but they stayed and worked it out. 

He wrote “When she was pregnant, we had one of the biggest fights we've ever had, one which could have spilt us up forever.... but somehow God took us thru & taught us lessons we'll never forget... So when we have challenges now, we remember that nothing is impossible, once we can work at it together

LESSON 2: WE LEARNT (THE HARD WAY) THAT CHALLENGES NEED NOT LEAVE PAINFUL MEMORIES: We have had many challenges over the years & many bad experiences...from dealing with the pressures of the industry I work in to the tough demands of the industry she works in. But the most difficult thing we've dealt with was being unable to have a baby when we wanted to... we waited & waited till the 7th year! Societies expectations weighed us down & being known made it even harder for me..Over the years, we hav fought, said regrettable things to each other & done things we wish we could take back...Some times we've felt like giving up... the most important question during such times was, do we still want this? If yes then let's stick together & work at it! Sometimes reluctantly we agreed...how do u work on a common goal with someone who has hurt your feelings? We struggled to agree but somehow we made it through each hurdle, stronger & with more respect for each other... I believe in our case if our baby had come earlier, he would have been the focus & our individual weaknesses/flaws would not have been dealt with & would have grown deeper & probably exploded in a matter of time. So we stuck together, deconstructed & begun to build...day by day. When she was pregnant, we had one of the biggest fights we've ever had, one which could have spilt us up 4ever.... but somehow God took us thru & taught us lessons we'll never forget... So when we hav challenges now, we remember that nothing is impossible, once we can work at it together ... #12lessonsin12years @elom_anang Photo: @beau___photography Costume (Elom): @pinksugagh Costume (Adjetey): @mmx_neno Hair & makeup: @kukispalour Director: @fiificoleman
