It is about time some truth is said and passed on to the later generation and hope they learn a thing or two.
It's heartbreaking when I read through the print media and find some alarming stories of how what we claim to be "LOVE" turns into a social media mess that wasn't meant to be associated with a third party in the first place.
Marriage, no doubt is an institution, but only meant to be attended by the husband and wife who exchanged vows, swearing to an everlasting life together.
But then, that's not what even breaks my heart the most, what really does is the response to it.
I turn on my internet and visit some of my favourite blogs and there it is; fingers been pointed and they blame it all on "Domestic Violence" while the problem on actual fact lies with us.
Not that I don't sympathize with those who get abused by those they love and have given so much of their life to, either domestically, mentally and psychologically to mention but a few, but we all can't be headed in the same direction, we also have to address some of the issues that may be the catalyst to this irresponsible and demonic act that's fast eating us up.
Truth be told, most people today get married for the wrong reasons. Now tell me how such an institution is supposed to produce good graduating students when the foundation is faulty?
And if I may, I'll like to relate that to our educational system because I remember vividly well in my first year where scholars with the highest jamb score couldn't even pass a simple arithmetic test.
It is just so sad how we lay so much emphasis on the wedding and not the marriage.
We are so concerned with what he/she got stocked in the bank forgetting it won't be too long before he/she finds someone just as beautiful and sex satisfying as "YOU".
Well, I'll not miss it at the point of marriage because I don't want a wedding that would be "televised" but a marriage that's "scripturised", please excuse my french.
And that is, finding that special someone, with whom I would someday raise a generation to change the world.
It's not about getting married, it's staying married.
Don't lose a whole life of happiness for a year or maybe two, of fancy clothes and trips to the Bahamas.
Take this as a wake-up call and let's put an end to domestic violence in our homes.
We can... And yes, we will. God bless!
