Someone said women change, hypothetically, every five years. Now the way a 25 year old lady will think and reason is different from what the priorities of a 30 year old woman are, which differs from what a 35 year old’s point of views and perspectives are about life and so on. If you find a married 25 year old lady and perhaps even working, she just feels blessed to be married and working and that sort of gives her satisfaction. She rolls with the routine by the day and everything is dandy. By the time she’s 30 years old and still has access to exposure, she’s probably thinking of more fulfilling things to do with her life now. … More How are you dealing with your wife’s evolution?

Being informed ahead of a task may better prepare you of expectations. But really, sometimes, there’s no amount of information that takes away the beauty or challenges or pain that comes with an actual task like being pregnant. I like to use myself as an example in most scenarios. When I got married, I just really wanted to be pregnant and have a baby. I’ve loved the thought of it since as far back as primary school but nothing prepared me totally for what to know about pregnancy or what to expect during pregnancy. Yes, I read books like What to expect when you’re expecting and followed relevant sites like BabyCenter but I was still confused at certain times of what to do and how to handle myself during that period.

In front of her mirror, she takes off her huge sun-glasses which she’s used to cover the purple bruise under her right eye. She sighed. She reaches for her cleansing wipes and braces herself as she cleans off the concealer cosmetic she’d used to cover up the red bruise on her arm and legs. She gets into the shower and before she could feel sorry for herself, she’s back in the kitchen making food for her husband who delights in snapping and hitting her at will. He was just generally unappreciative of her. His aim was to bring her permanently under his submission regardless of the fact that he married her a socialite.
She will not leave him because everyone thinks they look good together. She will not leave him because she wants to be understanding and make excuses for him.

Happiness is a consciousness to be satisfied and contented in whatever situation you find yourself, or at least that’s how I’d like to define it at this time. We all derive joy through different means. A lot of people would argue emphatically that money or pay raise is a better short cut to happiness. Well, just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Regardless of the finite things we program our minds around to give us satisfaction, a good night’s sleep and good sex life have a far greater impact on our well-being than money. Just as strong relationships with family and friends, job security and the good health of loved ones are also much more important than flashy cars and exotic holidays. … More Glow brighter with good sleep and good sex
A lot of us (Nigerians) have concluded that there is a better life or opportunity outside Nigeria. Well, I’m not with the school of thought that no one should check out.
