“Oooohhhh, I need to get married”, “When are we going to wear your aso-ebi?”…these are some of the typical sentences you hear when there’s a conversation involving a single lady or more. Typically, once you’ve graduated from school, the next ‘logical’ thing you’re expected to think about is marriage. The society begins to mount pressure on you, your parents ask, “when are you going to introduce us to that young man?” And so, you begin to see young ladies praying and fasting for a ‘life partner’ or showing up in events just to catch the eye of ‘Mr. Right’.
The thing is, does marriage have to be the next step in the cycle: write JAMB/A-Levels – gain admission into university – graduate from school – ??
Marriage is a totally big step and so many people have been pressured into entering into this great institution. It’s just when their feet are halfway in that they realize that they probably shouldn’t have gotten into it just yet. It’s not all negativity though, some people have great stories to tell.
So, why do you really want to get married?
