    SAY THIS TO A NIGERIAN PARENT, THEY WILL SLAP YOU.... EVERY FATHER AND MOTHER IS DESPERATELY WAITING FOR THE DAY THEIR SON/DAUGHTER IS GOING TO ENTER THE PRISON OF MARRIAGE :).... TO THEM, MARRIAGE IS THE TOP MOST ACHIEVEMENT; EDUCATION IS IRRELEVANT WHEN YOU CLIMB 25… EXCUSE GIVEN: LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT ONE, ARE YOU AN ANGEL OR 100% PERFECT?… IF YOU ARE NOT PERFECT, DONT EXPECT TO GET ONE, AT THE SAME TIME, DON’T SETTLE DOWN FOR LESS.

    It's a nice write-up, and that is her moniker, it does not take away from her writing

    We men put that thought in the minds of women. If you are not married to us, you are utterly worthless and should just hang yourselves. Marry us or DIE!!! Muhahahahahaha!!

    I don't know if I can put this on the men. I have some very accomplished women in my family that have never married. The only people in the family that make them feel insecure about not being married are the women in the family. The only ones giving out foolish advice to them when they were in their late 20s and early 30s about not building a house or buying a car were the women. Women are their biggest enemies

    I like what this person said, and I quote:

    "Waiting forever for a marriage partner is no guarantee that you will have a blissful marriage. There are no guarantees. I’ll be more respectful of the opinion that it just has not happened. Whether you wait for decades out of fear of marital prison or you marry at 18 out of fear of societal labels, the truth is that there are no guarantees. You just do your best, give it your very best and involve the 3rd partner in every blessed marriage (baba God).
    Finally, most marriage problems are very solvable. They just need hard work and patience. This mentality that once marriages encounter problems that the couples have become locked in prison and the keys thrown away is a defeatist mentality and a cop out for day dreamers."

    The grass always looks greener on the other side...some single people want to be married...some married people want to be single...this person works here or has that...I want it too..but that doesn't mean when you get it it would be as great for you...

    I just don't think human beings will ever be content...there is always something one wants that you don't have and it always "seems" great with someone else. I honestly think this happens in most situations and it does not have to always be negative...such is life.

    There is no perfect situation...just have the right motives and live a good life :)

    True that. Marriage no be by force. It is just that society still demands it of us all.

    They do make it seem so, don't they? They say to the women, "you are nothing without us" and a lot of women go ahead and believe that.
