    Bruh, I am torn!….. I love them!!!….and on a personal note, I shall not be giving up my otherwise great love relationship, over my lack of desire for children or some other personal desires with a direct impact on him or his happiness….You always anticipate going in that switches are possible and have to prep for worst case scenario…. If on the other hand, the relationship was below average and wack, then maybe… but when we still click so great after a decade….nah….that’s a ‘ku-si-be’ something! This isn’t to throw blame, its just me wishing they can find some ground and happiness back together….I have seen many divorcees- men and women, who in hindsight believe their issues could have been worked out…

    Wish her all the best, and truly hope she+he finds more happiness with their decision

    Will having one child be so bad? Can’t she hire a surrogate? She would make a great mom too. Please don’t let your husband go because you don’t want to have kids. The truth is good men are hard to come by. Especially in Hollywood. Please oh compromise. Jeannie ooooo.

      Not every woman wants to have kids. She has already explained that herself and her husband decided on no kids.

      He knew she didn’t want kids before he married her. Having a child is a huge responsibility. A woman who doesn’t want kids has no business having kids. It takes a certain type of woman to be able to make the sacrifices that come with being a mother and not all women are built for it, and that’s OK. Honestly it’s unfair to a child to bring it into this world when you know you won’t have time for it. Don’t judge her for her choices

      You think she is the typical low self esteem Nigerian woman?

      I can attest that having kids (or even more kids than you want) to appease a partner only leads to misery for all involved… especially the kids that have no choice in the drama. Yes, it happens in Nigeria!
      Trust me…it’s better to let the relationship go. Good men are NOT hard to come by. Plus if he was so good for her why didn’t he compromise? The mindset of doing ANYTHING just to keep a ‘good’ man is hella dangerous! Biko, she will find another partner… it’s not like our side that marriage is (seen as) one and done. She’s beautiful… she’s talented… she’s a star… love will find her again in no time.

      Having the child would not have mitigated the divorce

      The lady has always maintained she doesn’t want children, the husband knew. The fact is maybe he was ok with it at first and then changed his mind or was hoping that she would change hers. Maybe she might, maybe not but the fact is he knew and he married her anyway. If she doesn’t want, why force her, it’s her life…

    I love the way Jeannie explains her points during girl talk,her gesticulations and all. Having Kids is a big responsibility and I’m glad she knows that. I wish them both the best.

    She’s honest and true to self. Better to end it now than compromise and drag a child into a situation that will end up in a broken home. He probably assumed he could change her mind…’s a lesson to everyone. Accepting someone as they are or desire for better for worse is no joke. Sad though, 15 yrs is a long time

      He probably didn’t know then that he will change his mind about not wanting kids. Thing is we all change and questions our choices and decisions

    I think there is more to this but they are being matured not thrashing each other. 8-10 years mark of a marriage can be a moda binsh. That when couples question everything about the person they are with and start to persuade themselves they can do better. If only they can hang on a few more years to make to the auto pilot zone in a marriage

    There are things you can compromise about and things you should. Why anyone will think it is ok for a woman to give birth to and raise a child when they don’t want to is beyond me. Having a child is a huge commitment, you gotta give at least two decades of your life so definitely not for the faint hearted, Even those that want kids struggle with the responsibility of children self

    Better than living in misery all your life..because you were trying to please someone..All the best to both of you.

    Sorry but what is wrong in having children……… I just don’t get it

      what is the not-selfish reason for having a child? It’s seen as a ‘must do’ when neither childbirth nor marriage are requirements for existing, even based on the Bible. more and more people are beginning to be honest, which is good. Even Nigerians that have lots of kids, lots of them don’t want kids, but did it because it’s expected, causing so much misery. There will be fewer BN in boxes on ‘my mother abused me’ or ‘my father neglected me’

    All the peeps commending her decision to divorce becos of not wanting kids i laugh at you all…keep making excuses for her. The funny thing is the single ones amongst you lot wants to have kids and married one among you have kids…if you dont want the kids why did you get pregnant in the first place??…people making it look like having and raising is the worse thing that can happen to anyone, as if you wish your parents hadnt had you!!! hypocrites

      oya go and plant the child in her womb now. Your type will force their beliefs and wants on others. She doesn’t want, na by force?

      It’s like you lack the ability to comprehend. That someone agrees that she shouldn’t have children she doesn’t want, does not mean they themselves do not want children. It simply means that they are able to understand that not everyone has the desire to do so. You asking them why they got pregnant in the first place nullifies your arguement even more cos well they wanted it is why, meanwhile Jeannie didnt want it so she didn’t.
