After reading the marry a girl who reads and marry a man who travels series I started thinking.
Maybe I should do one of my own.
I was going to wait till after I write my papers BUT you know how it is.
- Side bar: EVERYBODY is getting married. I swear it is an epidemic of some sort.
And I think the information of this post will help those seeking.
Do marry a man that is EXACTLY like your father- that way you can actually take your mother's advice in marriage seriously. Learn from her mistakes and seek her out all so often. If all fails you would have built a relationship forged by the need of counsel and cemented by the tale of relate-able woes.
Do marry a man that does not/ can not save- Although you might resent him, you will automatically become indespensible as you will need to pay your children's fees and pitch in for general house hold up keep regularly. And that is fine- because you know every woman wants to be the one her husband leans on.
Do marry a man that has only one degree- But only if you have more than two. If you have one, do not. Otherwise dinner time will be filled with stories of when I was in school if any child of yours dares to complain about school. - Assuming you have dinner time conversations.
Do marry a man who you love more than yourself- Because when push comes to shove. His love wont keep you. Only your love can.
Do marry a man of different faith- After all variety is the spice of life. What better world to bring children into than a world where they are spoilt for choice faith wise?
To be honest I can go on and on and on, the point is this you can marry ANY man... BUT a Yoruba man.
What ever you do:-
Do NOT marry a Yoruba man. There is no light at the end of the tunnel in such a marriage.
Except off-course you are a Yoruba girl who has learnt from the feet of a Yoruba mother in a polygamous home. Then and only then can you marry a Yoruba man.
You think the devil can lie till you date and marry a Yoruba man.
This is incomplete- I'll come back to it once I am done with my essays next week. How was your Monday? Ace?
