It has always been believed that marriage is the coming together of two matured people who are in love. Well, this popular belief has been eroded over time by the stories of a lot of people who marry, not because they love their partners, but because of other strange reasons.
A Nigerian woman whose identity has been marked as Subomi on Twitter clearly stated out some of the odd reasons why people get married in Nigeria. The lady who is a renowned author restrictively talked about Nigerian men and the varied reasons they marry some ladies.
Sadly, the author ruled out love as one of these reasons. According to her, not many men in Nigeria settled down for particular ladies because they really love them but because they owe them.
By this, she meant that men married women due to the sacrifices the ladies made for them during their dating years. Also, other reasons included fear of confrontation, parental approval, pressure from friends and so on.
Subomi poured out her thoughts in several tweets on her Twitter page. Her opinion was strongly expressed with clear, repetitive and powerful words. See the thread below:
This thread has invited quite a lot of people to a round table. Many tweeps who read and digested her words deliberated on its accuracy. Most of them agreed with Subomi but they also said that her points were not restricted to the male gender, they also had everything to do with females.
