Yours Sincerely

Ever Regretted Getting Hitched To Mr. Available?

Unfortunately, Wura’s problem is quite common. As soon as a woman gets out of the university or starts work, the pressure is on for her to find a suitable husband and settle down.  That is why, in terms of choosing a partner for life, she is more likely to go for the prospective ‘perfect’ husband and father over someone untrustworthy and irresponsible.

Husbands Who Believe They’re Goaded Into Being Violent!

Nuru’s text to me was disturbing.  “I don’t know who I really got married to – a saint or the devil?”  Intuitively, I picked him as the few readers of this column to have a chat with.

The best way to cover an affair? Get rid of the evidence!

The letter nearly burnt holes in my hand – it was that scorching. If, for a minute you readers think I was the one being ‘seduced’ by such erotically crafted letter, then, you are wrong. What I had in my hands was a photocopy of the original letter purportedly written to a married woman by a close relation of mine.

How did a nice girl like her end up with a brute like him!

When he told me of his encounter with Monica, I warned him to be careful. Monica is in her early 40s and recently separated from her husband. Joshua had met her in one of his sisters’ shops and hadn’t let the 10-year age difference faze him. He always looks more matured for his thirty-something anyway.
