Every child, every parent is affected in one-way or the other by societal influences. Parents will naturally have aspirations for their children, and children as they grow into adulthood will have their own aspirations. The two aspirations will not always be in harmony. What mostly happens is that parents’ aspirations usually prevail in the shaping of the child’s future out of respect and sometimes fear.

“Challenged Lovers” is a true story about the challenge that came to two young adults who fell in love with each other and decided to get married despite all the efforts exerted to separate them. Written by author Lovemore Farai Mufute, this story revolves around Danai and Fadzai, both first-born children whose expectations are extremely high and the extent of the challenge to their love relationship is legendary.

Danai’s parents clearly expressed their dislike for Fadzai as their daughter’s friend, lover and spouse. Fadzai believes that his relationship with Danai must have taken her parents by surprise although she was already nineteen years old when they met. Danai’s parents thought that their firstborn girl child was still very young for a love relationship and marriage. By the time they decided to come together as husband and wife in 1975, Danai is twenty going on twenty-one. Danai’s father in particular had certain aspirations for his daughter, and Fadzai did not fit into the picture he had in mind. But Fadzai has gone through hell with Danai and is prepared to overcome any challenge that comes along the way. He is ready to fight to the bitter end for what he believes in and what is good for his family.

“Challenged Lovers” reflects the central message that parents need to impart all they believe their offspring need to get during their formative years. As young adults, their children are frequently subjected to societal influences that may not be in line with what parents have in mind. Life lessons must be given but respect of the young mind is critical to maintain the balance in the relationship between parent and child. Danai and Fadzai’s love was subjected to unimaginable challenges, but what they have as a couple is stronger than any challenges that they can ever face.
