The date was November 4, 2017 when former Miss Chinazor Ezeli a healthcare and hospitality administrator based in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, said “I do” to her heartthrob of so many years, Patrick McCullagh a British man from Northern Ireland, where the “who is who” in the State of Nevada and beyond graced the occasion.
Chinazor and Patrick had known each other since 2007, precisely a decade ago, when started by becoming close friends, from strength to strength their love for each other blossomed.
Distance became an issue with Patrick located in Northern Ireland UK and Chinazor in Las Vegas USA, so Patrick took a leap of faith by relocating to Las Vegas and with God’s grace, the pair embarked on a relationship that has finally led them to this date.
In an interview with Olika Reporters after the church wedding, Patrick admitted that distance was a great issue.
He said: “Chinazor was right here in Las Vegas, USA and I was in the United Kingdom, seeing each other was structured, though not convenient, we were seeing ourselves twice in a year, that is, every six months and later it became nine months, she would come to the UK and stay for a month or so and I would also travel to the US and finally in 2014, I decided to relocate to the US and join her here in Las Vegas”.

On her part, the new bride attributed the success recorded in the journey of ten years between her and her husband to the perseverance and resiliency of the new groom, Patrick.
In her words; “I must confess that this whole success story is all thanks to my husband who put in everything to make this dream a reality. Patrick is a very calm guy, patience and full of tolerance, he tolerated all my inconsistencies and above all, my troublesome attitude”.
“At a time, when I would feel it was over between us, to no fault of his anyway, he would always come insisting this must work, even apologizing while I was at fault. My husband is a complete gentleman any woman would pray to have as a husband. His parents accepted me as if I were their daughter and every member of their family contributed in no small way in making this marriage a reality”, Chinazor asserted.
When Olika Reporters sought to know from the masters holder in psychology what he actually saw in his wife that kept him pushing to take her to the alter, he said: “Apart from the fact that she is beautiful, which is quite obvious, My wife is a goal-getter, a great achiever and an organizer”.
“Anytime she is with me, she organises everything, she has no impossibilities in her life, she has this strong drive in her I admire so much, which is her ability to solve things, she virtually has solution to every problem and I felt since I am a the calm type, who always takes the back seat and watch things unfold, there has to be a driver in my life who has the ability to take charge and that person is Chinazor”………….
