      My peeps. The pressure on a man to have a car, money, house and wealth in our society is real o. My brother in law was not taken seriously even by his own blood until he got a job. Therefore women may be obsessed with marriage, men can be obsessed with money. God help us all to fifill our destinies.

    Well first time watching this vlog cos I was curious… I think this is an over flogged issue, and a somewhat lazy topic cos we wont hear anything new,….. but I will speak about the respect angle.

    I have heard severally you get more respect as a married woman…. and it isn’t surprising in this environment…However as a 32 yr old single, Female, Lagosian, I believe it is possible to command respect when you step out… How you carry and conduct yourself is very important… Insecure people abound, and will try to define who and how you should be at every point, and it doesn’t stop even when you get married so just decide who you want/need to be and do that. I personally haven’t experienced some of the kind of disrespect I hear about, but on the few occasions that it was clear to me that I was being treated funny for either my female or single status, my dear, I address it real quick…..not with insults or aggressiveness- but with confidence and common sense that will tell whoever it is that I am not their toy to tune as they please….in two cases at least that I remember, they are surprised by being called out, and usually embarrassed….and then they apologise or just stay out of my way. Again, cos I don’t feel everyone is against me or out to get me or ‘hate’, I generally will not even notice if you’re trying to be funny, so you end up fooling yourself…. I find majority of our women cannot stand up for themselves, cos most are trained to ‘submit’ to any and everything, but my parents hardly differentiated between me and my brothers, as a result, I am less likely to just dash you respect cos I feel inferior… so I know that it is possible to be respected and valued as a single woman. question is do you carry and conduct yourself like a valuable person… is how you carry yourself that people will treat you….and NO, not every single person considers their home- a prison as you described. I will leave here someday, but for now my home is my sanctuary and anyone entering it knows better than to try and mess with it.

    I am just an unwavering believer in the fact that you set the standards for how people treat you at all times. play na play and serious is serious… know when to switch it up on people!

    Marriage is honourable that is what the Word says so if you are honoured for that purpose the position carries it already. It is good to trust God for the right person. Secondly, some people have the gift of celibacy. Apostle Paul did not get married, he wrote lots of passages in the old testament including issues concerning marriage. Marriage cannot he overflogged and let’s not assume that people in the Western world don’t . get concerned also. A Caucasian I know said the next concern after putting his daughter through college is whom she will marry. Marriage is an integral part of the society including the presidency, we can’t run away from its importance. Sex outside marriage has its frustrations and high risk ( assuming both husband and wife are wise, not keeping affairs) That woman or man you admire came from a union. Marriage will continue to be until the end of ages. No marriage in heaven. Let’s also not assume men don’t feel the pressure. A man who is not married by 40 is seen to have issues. The truth can be better but we can’t run away from the importance of marriage.

      nah, marriage obsessed too. ‘My husband this, hubby that, he wants this, can I confront him, i must forgive and manage him and his abusive tendencies/cheating etc etc. It’s a tough thing to unlearn and so some women dont bother because seeking validation from a human or marriage title that’s physically there is more straightforward than seeking validation from God who made you, (or your confidence or attributes if you’re not religious)

    Exactly what she said, once you’ve ticked those boxes they ask the girl, ‘when are you getting married?’ . yet, these same people will not be there to help if she has a marital problem in future and will still point fingers saying its her fault
    Nigerian women have suffered
