In this week’s vlog, Toke Makinwa gives tips on how to dissuade your parents from disturbing you about marriage –

  1. Tell them about the high divorce rates nowadays.
  2. Tell them men have changed – a lot of them still want to have fun, they aren’t ready to grow up, unlike in the olden days
  3. Play the “lesbian card” … and more!

    Nigerians and living in other countries.

    A. Divorce rates are not high worldwide, They only cross 50% in:
    and America. If you live in none of these countries, odds are your marriage will likely work.

    B. Tell them men have changed – a lot of them still want to have fun, they aren’t ready to grow up, unlike in the olden days. *Sigh*, in the olden days Men married early because they were likely to die earlier. Even then Samuel Johnson recorded that the typical Yoruba Man got married in his early thirties. Most men also had fun by simply upgrading to a new version when the old one got boring. How are the olden days better?

    C. Play the “lesbian card”??????Yup, let’s do the real mature thing of shocking and lying to our parents, its obvious they’re incapable of understanding the changing times and the need for a woman to establish herself career wise before getting hitched, because raising kids these days is expensive e.t.c. It must always be about ‘what the men want’. Real progressive stuff here.

    ???Nope, I didn’t watch a single second of it, major risk if Toke defies my expectations, ehh what’s life without risks. Prove me wrong Toke.???

    Too funny ….satirical but funny…and it is true husbands are not bought in the market
    Nigerians compete about everything ..even marriage is a competition. If you are not married and over 30 then you must be a never do well lady who is proud, not well behaved and has brought it on yourself. Peradventure you don’t classify as the wild lady who is chasing all the men away then you must be under some demonic attack..God help women who are always on the receiving end of such societal problems

    I tell you most of this men are so annoying , it’s when you are married that you ll understand what they mean by its a man’s world, he cheat on you , they ll ask u to beg him so that he ll not go and marry another woman, he keeps frustrating u , yet u are suppose to keep your home. Marriage sucks . Just pray that you are among the lucky ones that have it nice and lovely in marriage. I now understand why some women end up committing suicide or homicide. Some men knows how to make u feel worthless .

    Get off her case. She’s a Vlogger and subjects vary based on the need of the moment. What she’s talking about is a reality in Nigeria and this kind of pressure has put alot of ladies in the wrong marriages. Whatever is happening in her personal life has nothing to do with whatever topic she decides to treat for the Vlog. You either listen, laugh, pick a lesson or two, or Back off!
