    Lol..Men…we get it all wrong in this thing called relationship/marriage ??We can’t win.
    If you had given her a box of chocolate or a glass of pinot grigio,all these shouting and body wey dey bite her,for no dey.
    How do you expect a woman to get wet after an argument when you should hv given her a chocolate or a glass of wine.
    Nigeria men,wake up…

      Its not only chocolate its chocomilo. Just because you have seen too many oyinbo things does not mean it applies to everyone. The average Nigerian family does not have chocolate always available and not all women are into that. Study your spouse and what works for them and act accordingly. If its okpa they love, give it to them with palmwine and if its chocolate and wine,do likewise.
      My point is different strokes for different folks.

      it’s a different thing if you haven’t tasted chocolate or a glass of pinot…what you don’t have,you don’t miss.
      But trust me,when it comes to chocolate,babe,resistance is futile….Serotonin…endorphine…HELLOOO!
      Or is it palmwine or jellor rice that settles arguments for you ??

      bless you for this comment..Naija men like to form rugged when there are petty/minor ways to appease an angry woman.. romance is indeed dead isi ewu and palwine tins for zayn

    Beautiful, I’m looking forward to this. In some cases all the woman wants/needs is beyond material things, she just wants to be helped by her man! She wants to be made to feel like a wife not maid, she wants to be assisted with chores ( it’s only normal to clean up your own mess)… Guys try it and see if you won’t get what you want from your woman. If a guy can be that humble, some women make sure you’re treated like a king, but if you make her feel like some mini slave in the name of marriage, you will pay and the result is unhappiness.

    Amazing! Love it already.
    Please get this show on EbonyLife or AfMag 151.
