When love is not enough!II - Before you say 'I do'

So it is no news that love is NEVER enough. Most people just enter into marriage claiming they are in love without first thinking of 'for better for worse'. If everyone considered their marital vows before signing the dreaded divorce papers then nobody would be bearing the title, divorcĂ©(e). The rate at which couples get divorced these days is terrifying for those still married and those about to. But trust my Naija peeps nah, that one na tori o, abeg! First get married then bear the cross later,the major thing is the aso ebi and Mr and Mrs (especially Mrs ) title. According to Myles Munroe: 'what keeps a marriage is not love but knowledge'- the ability to live with each other. These days, most about to wed couples are advocating the cohabiting theory. Well, personally I don't really like this idea in fact sef I hate the idea! I strongly believe that the best and only step to take before saying 'I do' is praying. Pray and fast because your life actually depends on it. Talk to your mother about this person, I trust my fellow Naija women, they have special pastors for occasions like this and if you don't have a mother, then talk to your pastor. This is someone you are planning to spend the rest of your life with, you are gonna wake up every morning and see his/her face with dried drool beside his/her mouth, have sleepless night because of his/her loud snores, watch the prized possession which got you attracted to him/her in the first instance loose its elasticity or sag every day and keep up with other really annoying traits for the rest of your LIFE!!! I'm sorry if this sounds like a life sentence (actually it is!) but I'm just trying to emphasize the depths of this institution we call marriage. 
On the brighter side however, you go home and there's always someone waiting for you to wipe your tears, sweat and make you feel alive*winks*, a constant, loyal and faithful companion (ie if you are with the right person o!).

So my dear friends, I don't believe love fades away, but I believe it is not enough to stop your partner from cheating, throwing that bed lamp at you, being impatience at your childlessness, taking sides with your in-laws, constantly nagging, abandoning you, giving you the silent treatment, need I mention more?! What is enough is Grace, the Grace of God!it's always sufficient.And for the married ones, 'A family that prays together, sticks together', might sound like a cliche but oh! it works, keep it in mind!

When love is not enough!

Titi, 23 met Dayo, 25 on Facebook, they set up a date, met and instantly fell in love. Few months into their relationship,they both decided to take a blood genotype test, just to be sure. Well, your guess is as good as mine if you always see the glass as half empty and not half full. They were both AS and had to call it quits. 
They are both still single.
Rita, 20 met Emeka, 29 in the church. Rita was a member of the church choir and often led praises during service. This of course caught the attention and 'attraction' of Emeka. As a sharp Ibo boy he prophesied his love to Rita who within few weeks was swept of her feet by his persistence, charm, good looks and of course, fat bank account totally turning  deaf ears to his really strong Ibo accent. After two months of playing hard to get as per correct   Naija babe mentality she finally succumbed to his woos and eventually said 'I do' with the approval of their pastor (and other means via pictures of Emeka and other prospective suitors). Five years after the marriage, Rita had not gotten pregnant and this caused tension in their home. Emeka started drinking, keeping late nights and flirting around. What finally broke the camel's back was his ultimatum,'thiz year if you don't give me a child consider yaself single!'.
Rita is now back with her parents.
Kenny, 32 met Ruka, 26 in the nightclub. 'What captivated me was her calmness. There was this peacefulness around her amidst the noise', He reminisced. They both exchanged numbers and a relationship ensued thereafter. 
They both really loved each other but there was a BUT! Ruka was a NYMPHO! They had both tried their best trying to cure this ailment, from special deliverance sessions, to white and red candle sessions, to special flogging sessions, to psychological sessions, all to no avail.
They finally broke up after Kenny realized everything else came after sex in Ruka's life, including him.
                                                 to be continued..........

Demi wants to cut Kutcher

So this is the end of the cougar-ish marriage?! And to think that most older women in the same relationship 'situation' were looking up to her. Well, we still have Kourtney Kardashian and Scott, don't we?(ahem...) So what are my views? Well, personally I knew it wouldn't last, come on who are we kidding?! This is not the matter of bad belle or women sef! but it's just the truth. In Nigeria, once you are approaching the 25-ish stage, market don dey finish how much more for 41. Truth be told, Demi Moore is smoking hot (on camera), but we don't see her when she wakes up in the morning. I believe this is just some sort of karma, I didn't like that she divorced Bruce Willis (I love you Bruce, call me!) at all. So tit for tat.
As for Brother Ashton, nobody forced him to get married to Demi in the first instance so I'm really disappointed in him concerning the cheating rumours. If he had simply said, Abeg, I no do again! Good and fine! But cheating? That's just too bad. At least he should have considered his marriage vows, or even the love and respect he once had for her. Shame on you Ashton.
Love is love, regardless of age, looks, money or whatever, but love doesn't keep a marriage(think about this).
Okay, so that brings me to the major gist. I heard that she (Demi) wants to take revenge on Ashton financially. She instructed her lawyers to 'punish him financially'. Ashton earns a whooping 500k pounds per episode on Two and a Half men (even though it double sucks now) and as much as 4m pounds per year as a successful investor in new technological projects, including Skype. Now this is where I'm in full support of Demi. Sharp babe. Your mouth dey there. Leave the vengeance to God, and Ashton's money to your account!

Diary of a Young Nigerian Virgin

Oct 30 2004,!0:00pm. On my bed.

Dear Diary,

Me I'm tired of staying at home oh! I heard Nana is now in University of Abuja while I'm still lounging at home, it's already October, making it the 4th month of staying at home idling away. Hmmn....idle. An idle mind is indeed the devil's work shop...something happened today. I was staying at home jejely watching Teletubbies (what?!I like the programme) when this guy came over, that fine boy I use to eye in my computer school, Chukwudi. Seriously, I don't even know what I even like in him, he has this nasty bow legs and wears glasses as thick as the bottom of solo coke bottle, but he drives me nuts with his voice or maybe its his really light brown eyes, well whatever I sha like him sha. So as I was saying, he came today and brought this film with him. Guess what type of film it was?It was a blue film. You know, before today I used to think blue film was a film with blue pictures just like a black and white film. Naive me!
Okay o, so I played the film, but after seeing its first  few seconds(okay its a lie, first few minutes) content and started feeling really funny and felt Chukwudi's fingers move towards my thighs, I quickly jumped up and told him to leave but without the film.
I'm sleeping 3.00pm tonight. Ciao!
