      @Thank you Shior! I said here that Lilian is a very wicked girl! The way she was scattering money up and down ,money she did not work for several ceremonies!
      A woman that really wants to marry will ensure that the man is prudent! Ubi will have himself to blame, as most times ,the voice of the people is the voice of God!Ubi was trying to prove a point to Emma Eyra,I just pray the good Lord mends it,as any loose spouse can be curbed with strong love!

    I find that extremely pretty women don’t always marry into stability. Unlike women with average looks who want a stable guy in terms of a 9-5 kind of man, etc.
    I think it’s because, extremely beautiful women are mostly seeking a man who would meet their every need, etc. Their slogan is, if you can’t take care of me, there are many men out there who would. Unfortunately, the men who marry them know it’s true. Almost every time they go out, a man is asking to hem out even in their 50’s. At 40, they can always remarry. Look at Monalisa Chanda, look at Liz Benson, look at Daisy Danjuma. It does not always end well though. Sometimes, the men they meet at 40 are mostly excess baggage with a wife at home and may just keep the.m as a Main side chick. I know because I have a drop dead gorgeous relative and this is how she ended.

    Unnecessary iyanga because you’re very pretty? My dear Lilian, shine your eye o! That man outside may never marry you and you become a hustling mistress before you find someone else who may put a ring on it. By 45, many younger versions of you will be all over the place and you would realise you have become a pretty mgbeke with no ‘home’.

      Or MAYBE ubi is back in his old skin. And she doesn’t want to die there. Everything is the woman’s fault. Now you guys are blaming her because she’s fine. Is it jealousy or what now

      Extremely pretty kwa? I mean Kilian is pretty but extremely? It is indeed in the eyes of the beholder.

    • Idomagirl

      November 1, 2016 at 5:54 pm

      She’s not extremely pretty tho.
      Let’s calm down please.

      @lala, not always true. I know extremely beautiful women who are happily married. You can’t generalize on marriage issues.. many are working, many are not. The women you mentioned didn’t cause their marriage to break . Mona Lisa was abused by her hubby, Danjuma was cheated on repeatedly by her hubby. They met bad/wrong men and shouldn’t take responsibility for their husbands actions. Good people are good, bad people are bad, beauty has little to do with character. Just that it is normal for people to expect more from pretty faces, which is very unfair to ugly ones like us. If a beautiful person/innocent face does something bad, people get surprised, but when ugly/strong faces does same thing, people are not shocked. But psychology will tell you that that is poor judgement. Looks are not correlated with character.

    Foolish Lilian that gave up a career for this loser. I wonder why women are so foolish to give up their independence for a beast. I don’t believe she’s a runs girl. Must every beautiful woman be a prostitute?? foolish Nigerians and their stereotypes. Lili, abeg leave this loser joh. Get ur career back on track n raise ur child. These men ain’t worth it.

    How did she gave up her career … The way you think and reason I just wonder where on earth you came up from …

    Why are we like this … Acting all perfect , being the first to judge etc … There is no realationship without its ups and downs … Even twin have their issues , you lived with your sibling all your life they still get you mad etc , are all saying our parents , brothers , sisters , friends , mentors etc don’t have theirs issues every once in a while … No matter who you are with in a relationship you will still have something the person does that get to you , one year in marriage not enough to fully understand someone , we are all human being , how come we have have lost sense of that , expect perfection only from God … Free people jor … People you abuse and judge on social media if you see them in person can you still say harsh things to them …

    Loose spouse? Don’t tell me Lilian is like that. I’ve always admired her way before her Nurse Abigail days.
    I’m not a fan of going into a union with someone you don’t have enough affection for. It may probably be the situation here because right from the start,it looked like she just decided to settle and get married.
    On the other hand,she may not be the problem. She is the one in that union and knows where the shoe pinches.
    I hope they mend fences regardless of what the issue may be.
