There’s no greater feeling than the love of family, and when one meets Kareem and Tamara Boyce, the love between them is palpable and cannot be ignored.
The young couple have been married for just shy of two months after winning the Nation’s 2018 Forever I Do competition.
Their life together over the last six years, their “proposal” and their wedding make it clear that nothing about them is traditional. But the one thing that is true is their love for each other and their two-year-old son Khyus Boyce.
The couple met while students at Alleyne School – Kareem a senior and Tamara a junior. The friendship that emerged was strictly platonic, according to Tamara.
But after a number of years, they reconnected and the sparks started to fly.
“We were just friends. I knew his family before him. We reconnected at a Crop Over event. Then while I was overseas completing my studies at St Augustine campus he reached out to me, that was in 2012 – and we got together in February 2013,” Tamara recalled.
Kareem said that after getting to know her more and observing her attributes, he knew quickly that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
“There was a time she was in the Parish Ambassador competition and I was observing her. We were taking a trip to one of the events she had to attend and her parents were in the car. The relationship they had spoke a lot to me and how I want my family to be and so on. I knew if she was like that with her family, just completely herself, I knew she was the one for me,” he said, squeezing his wife’s shoulder.
They dated for four years. Tamara said she knew pretty early on in the relationship that Kareem was the one for her. (DB)
