More women are independent now and won't take the rubbish that broke women of old used to stomach. Polygamy thrived because a man would happily chop insults from his female boss— he needs the money, and she has the money and the power. The same man will slap his wife at home if she barely raises her voice at him. But boss and wife, they are both women. Likewise, polygamy back in the day. The men that did it could control their women because those women needed them to feed and breathe, and there was the agreement that more broke wives would follow.

It was expected. Even some women back then refused to be harmonized like that. But today, do you want to force that kind of life on a woman you promised to be faithful to? You know that she will never agree to marry you if you present her with such a future upfront unless, of course, she is broke and desperate. And the way we always talk about traditional? If you want classic, go and set up a community where you and your wives agree not to send female children to school and not use any technological devices like your phone that you are using to spew this nonsense.

You want to have your cake and eat it. Marry, have a daughter first, and pour your life into training her to be a neurosurgeon. Then you can allow one man to be forcing her to kneel to serve him food or expose her to STDs by sleeping with five other women in your harem after a long day repairing people's brains. Allow one idiot man like yourself to treat her like a mindless cow in the name of traditionalism.

Today's independent woman is not like the olden days' women or desperados of today. Most need you only for either sperm or sexual pleasure that she can get anywhere. Why will she submit to a life of misery under a he-goat who feels entitled to cast her feelings aside and treat her like a piece of property simply because he has a penis? There are women like that for your kind— dependent on men for their breath and will dump you for another man the minute you lack what they want. Good luck slapping your female boss for not giving you what you want.

If you know the real gist tell us. This thing is getting scary. Soooooooooo many celebrities and society ladies divorced. I can list almost 30. Toke, Tiwa, Osas, Arese, Uche jumbo, Anita, Ibire Julius, April by Kunbi, that magazine Esiri lady, Oluchi's best friend can't remember her name, Tiffany amber, Deola Sagoe, Owner of Ebonylife Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. One thing is clear, and many Nigerian men cannot be happily married to successful women. Also, many are cheaters both husband and wife. God help marriages o. Scary o.

I never knew Basketmouth na knacker demus. It is well, oooh! I used to admire him and the other one who had brain surgery and announced to us that his wife had decided to pack out. Marriage na scam, oooh! May God help us.

If your wife wears wigs, Mary Kay, eye lashes, demonic nails, etc you must be a highly chinekes boy for a man to live in peace with a woman full of sinister characteristics! But if you are a canal comedian or circular musician and your wife wears those demonic kinds of stuff, the marriage will not work because the man is posses by demons and the wife is a Jezebel! E no go work! One must bow or be very spiritual for the marriage to work!

you arrived at the party too late. That is what many women are already doing. Some don't even use physical men to get pregnant. I am 24 and can NEVER subject myself to what I have seen my sisters enduring at their husbands' hands.

How can I subject myself to such misery and sperm that can have HIV from sleeping with too many women? I can go to a sperm bank and collect healthy and anonymous sperm to make my baby with no man who will be cheating, making me miserable, and trying to ruin my life with STI.

Two of the goats that are married to my sisters tried to sleep with me! And these are men that look serious when they appear on TV. Tueh. I have my work. Earn my own money. I am getting my own house, not renting o. Just like many women today. What is a man's usefulness apart from being a sperm donor?

Most of your baby daddies are not even involved in parenting. You drop money for the broke ladies, and many women have their own money these days. So what is your usefulness apart from the money which we have? You help us see that men are dispensable and nothing better than sperm donors. You cannot even say you want to hoard sperm from women. You all give it up too quickly. Give it a few years, and most women will realize that all some men are good for is sperm because, even the sex part, only a few know how to please a woman. We prefer to do it ourselves with a dildo. No risk of STI too

Wahala go be like bicycle

Better prepare for a lonely life

Kids need a stable home to grow into well-rounded adults. They need a good father and mother living in harmony and love and showing good examples while disciplining them when necessary. The ideal home is the best for kids and the whole family.

Our women can not manage marriage anymore like their mothers were doing before. Western lifestyles and culture that we, as Nigerians have embraced, will always lead to this. No marriage is perfect. It is the ability to endure and never give up. Bring OUR HEAVENLY FATHER INTO YOUR MARRIAGE ALWAYS. If there's no physical abuse, i don't see why you can't manage your marriages, dear over westernized Nigerian women, especially for the sake of your children. Always remember that parents are their children's number 1 role model.

your comment is riddled with redflags. 1. Women are not meant to manage marriage 2. Western culture did not do anything 3. Not everyone is Christian so be inclusive when talking about marriage 4. You have no right to subject the reason for divorce to just physical abuse 5. Marriage is not meant to be endured..or managed..AGAIN 6. It takes two to make a marriage work…grow up and stop blaming women for failed marriages. Think objectively and rationally….think beyond how you’ve been socio-culturally nurtured…THINK!

No idea of what happened in their marriage is true, but the fact remains that most of our women are confused. They have embraced western culture and cannot even actively play their part as westerners 😂, In principle and in practice their husbands are westerners and Nigerians respectively.

Shebi na only woman suppose manage marriage😒😒😒

Be like na the new trend amongst men? You get married to her just to have kids with you then you start to provoke her afterwards so she would opt for a divorce and boom you grant her that and then you go on to look for a small girl to be satisfying you.

you are spot on. my thoughts exactly. Men are the head and priests of the family. The responsibility of keeping the family lies more with him as the head. Instead they just grant divorce and move on to new babes. Disgusting trend!

no woman would want to walk out of a marriage she spent 80% of her life time building, making babies changing her Virginal shape and size then her breast, the late nights where she has to breastfeed and all that. No woman does this things with the hope of working out afterwards na una dey trigger am pls.

Yes, he's a community dick. Why are you surprised? Like his elder brother, who came to say his wife had just moved out for no reason, the more aging comedian. Na the reason makes you ask both men. Women wey dey treat STI in marriage deserve GRAMMY. GOD FORBID!!! Women take many risks for relationships, from abortion that I cannot phantom how a grown-up lady would agree to risk their life for 5mins of sex, only to abort. It is pure MURDER.

Hate my comment. You are murderers!!! You fear getting pregnant but don't fear killing a Life, make una fear God. Na so the prick sweet that you can't think straight or make the right choices, on top of wetin man, SMH. To deal with STi in marriage to secure the ring, ehh omo. I no go fit. HIV no dey make an announcement before e enter.

I'm not happy about the high divorce rate because I get an extra psychological high when the sex is with someone's wife, not someone's ex-wife. Knowing that what I'm doing is wrong/forbidden releases excess dopamine in my brain; thus, she doesn't even have to look good. Even after the adulterous act, I still get pleasure from having such a dreadful secret, especially when I meet their husbands. It makes me feel intelligent and powerful.

And you need to look into the drawing board again for marriage is divine and God's no 1 ministry on earth. There are a lot of people with good marriages married to good intentional people. Pray for yourself to have the good stuff. God's blessings are still evident in our lives so make powerful your power of choice. God still ordains good marriages. Your choice isn't my choice. My choice is the God kind.

No surprises here because Most people now are being foolishly “woke” and, as a result, marriage the wrong weak/simp men and manly/feminist-minded women marrying themselves, which is not natural and biological. As a result, there’s more friction, conflicts, and disagreement than ever. People are now more immature, childish, and unrealistic than ever before.

Sadly, there’ll be more breakups and divorces in the future if people do not stop this useless western/feminist approach to marriage because such an approach NEVER WORKS. This is why divorce is also high in the west. In the East, like Eastern Europe, Asia, Arabs and Indians all reject a western approach to marriage and have to keep following the traditional method. As a result, there are more stable, prosperous, and happy marriages in those places than in the West (US, UK etc.).

Marriage is a traditional institution that requires a conventional approach. Anything other than that will lead to chaos, disorder, confusion, broken homes, and dysfunctional kids.

You even tried, bro, because I can't endure a cunt for one night talkless of 12 good years. That would have seemed like a life sentence. Though I don't believe in the shit and farce called marriage, I somehow understand the unwritten code that a man seeking sensitive office is expected to be married. If one can endure the insult, bitchiness, mischief, and, promiscuity odor of rotten pussy a cunt can put you through, then one can handle the trials of a sensitive office. I love your mature response in contrast to the pity party this expired vaginal will soon embark on in social media.

The institution of marriage is divine and sacred, the devil doesn't like like at all, and that's why it tries to put it asunder anyhow. It's unfortunate. However, you see OGBANJE, AND SPIRIT OTHER SPIRITS ACCOMPANYING HUMAN BIRTH? If not settled can be very destructive, but unfortunately, people follow westernization and don't pay attention to those things, and it keeps destroying. Alternatively, go for serious deliverance and ensure you're delivered. Not everyone in the church is given, and not every pastor is gifted to do that. In all, God is all-knowing and has every solution. Follow God seriously, and it will be done automatically. Like it or dislike it, that's your business. Truth is bitter, after all.

This one pain me sha. I've had my divorce and separation, I felt it, I know the feeling. No matter how terrible your partner was, except for domestic violence or unfaithfulness, there's still room for forgiveness. However, if it's irreconcilable differences, for the sake of children, give yourselves time to heal, separate amicably, and move on with your lives without rancor because children growing up with single parents get affected most times negatively. They can never be the same again. These things never get easy.

God please! What is happening to marriages? Why is the devil hell bent on destroying the only foundation you have set for men / women to establish in order to raise fearful offsprings. It is well! If this is what works for the both of them , I wish them well as they journey through this difficult time.

Irresponsible men will post all on social media. Same men that foolishly support women, these men disgust me. Same men that simp for women, calling their wives, you are my world, my light, my love, I can't do without you, you are the source of my happiness—foolish men. When we tell them, they call women haters.

Adesuwa Etomi and Banky W. Please, nothing must happen to that marriage. Nothing must ever happen to that marriage, or that is the end, because what I heard a few weeks ago was disturbing. To join PDD, someone has to undergo rituals, and ****** was unhappy about it. If anything happens to that couple, thats the end.

Maturity is not your mate. Celebrity nonsense! Maturity can't be bought and sold in shopping malls. You play sit-down for 2minites for any idiot movie to become a celebrity just like ancestors and his teenage wife! The old man, polygamy fool!

Couples are no longer willing to settle their differences and work things out. They separate and eventually divorce at the slightest provocation. The sad thing is that they might have a new partner worse than their former spouse. Two of my very close friends divorced just last month, and it's for reasons that, in my opinion, could be trashed out if they were willing to try.

Why always bring certain things online and still request privacy? And then this act of always lifting write-ups verbatim and making it look like it was composed by us, can't some of us be real for once? What does it take to write a message ourselves, rather than always lifting what a foreigner in the same situation put out? Anyway, I wish you both the best as you begin new chapters in your lives.

This is ridiculous. Most black women are copying white women trying to become single mothers. Do they think they become 'woke'? Black women are some of the most stupid women on earth. How do you copy another race with a different value set from yours simply because you feel they have been beautiful and you ugly being a black woman??

Men if you want a long lasting marriage with happiness and a life full of enjoyment, marry a bisexual lady. Give it a try and you will thank me much later.

MarriageLast activity one month ago

I don't get it. Like Harry and Meghan, these too want privacy, yet they announce their private business to the whole world and its friends and cousins. An oxymoron of sorts. Keep your frigging business off SM, or quit bleating! Duh!!!!

Congratulations to both of you. Better to be apart than to be toxic together.
