It took popular DJ Creme a long time before he went on one knee and asked his fiance Denise whether she wants to spend the rest of her life with him.
Fourteen years to be exact. All this time, the two lived together happily and were blessed with two kids.
“14 long years to ask my best friend, my confidant, mother to my kids, my forever person, to marry me,” he surprised his fans on social media with a post announcing the engagement.
“I know I’ve stressed you out so many times but my heart and all I got belongs to you. I wanna love you forever.”

The post left many wondering why he took his sweet time and, how in the world did Denise wait for so long to make things official.
Well, in Creme’s defense, he has been trying. Okay, not for the 14 years but at least for the last two years.
In 2019, Creme had made an official announcement that he’s planning to wed but things didn’t go as planned.
“I am having the wedding soon and it is one thing I am working on,” he told Word Is at the time.
Still, that doesn’t really explain why he took so long but here are some points why he might have taken 14 years.
1. Sure bet
C’mon, don’t tell you haven’t seen those viral videos of poor boys on their knees being handed a solid “NO” after proposing in a room full of people. That, however, would hardly happen when you spend considerable time with your girlfriend. Don’t take your sweet time but also don’t be in a hurry.
2. Family Shenanigans
Sometimes we just get caught in our daily lives so much that we keep missing the perfect opportunity to solidify things. It shrinks your time.
A major reason why 14 years later you find yourself asking where did the time go?
4. Let’s you know your partner
It doesn’t have to take more than a decade but the key thing here is to take your time in knowing your partner. It saves you from that bitter, publicized divorce case and unexpected baby mama dramas a few years later.
5. Gives you a hint of what will come next after the romantic phase.
When the flame runs out and you have to figure out how to recreate it, you get to learn more about your partner.
It becomes now more just than about love. It switches to being good friends, partners in almost everything, and most importantly, roommates.
