WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK OF RENEWAL OF WEDDING VOWS?

image

I like the idea, please don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I can’t help thinking, “what’s the point?!”

What’s the point of a renewal if situation still remains status quo? What’s the point if the man you are married still beats you black and blue? What’s the point if the man is still not financially responsible to the family?

The only renewal I’m thinking one should take is a vow to be a better spouse, not for a spouse to renew the vow to continue tolerating all forms of abuse.

So guys, what do you think? Is there any point in  doing a renewal? And if you there should be, when should it be done?… 5, 10, 15 or more years.

Okay, I’m thinking if it must be done at all, then it should be from 30 years and above. A renewal will definitely be a certificate that proves you survived ‘Tsunamis’ in the marriage! *hehehe*

33 YEARS OF MARRIAGE ISN’T EASY

Congrats to Betty and Soni Irabor on their 33rd wedding anniversary.

You may wonder why I am publishing this. Apart from congratulating them because of their huge contribution to the media industry, Genevieve Magazine and media broadcasting respectively, the fact that they have ‘managed’ to live together, under the same room, for 33 years…simply wows me! I’ve only been married for 12 years, and I know how my hubby drives me bunkers and them sometimes, you can’t help but ask quietly, “You mean I’m going to spend the rest of my life with this guy?!” But anyway, it only gets better.

So a big hearty cheers to Betty and Soni. I hope one of these days, I’ll get to interview them, so that they can let us in on the secret of a lengthy blissful marriage.

FRANK EDOHO IS MARRIED AGAIN

I dunno but I’m sort of having mixed feelings about this union of Frank and Sandra. Please, don’t get me wrong, I wish them a happy married life…but…

You see, I hate ‘but’ in any statement. I just feel that before any woman decides to fall hook, line and sinker, in a relationship, or more precisely to a ‘second hand husband’, she should do her own investigations, especially from the previous wife! You do not need to believe everything she says, but take something from your conversation and match it with your own observations. I tell you, a scorned wife will definitely spill! So its better to get the gist from her while she’s still hurt or healing.

I dunno about you, but I love learning from other people’s experiences. So are you saying that if you hear that the guy you are dating has a history of domestic violence and ‘stinginess’, you won’t want to clarify the allegations?

Anyway, lemme stop being a sour grape and wish them well! Frank and Sandra, I wish you guys all the best…truly.

So who wants to be the lucky woman?! I will be your pastor, don’t fear!
