With all this and many more said about these men, why then are our Nigerian men's marriages plagued with acrimony, bitterness, hostility, bad blood, and rancor?
(Written at Abuja and completed in Atlanta for the benefit of the Nigerian friends I have served as Marriage Coach.
Thanks to all Nigerian men and women who offered useful suggestions and who shared some of their marital issues during many confidential divorce-prevention sessions we have had at my home).
But enough about my non-existent children, since my husband is nowhere to be found (yet).
The question is where does a girl who lives in oyinbo-ville meet a Nigerian man? Well I gave in and I actually signed up on a site that catered to Nigerians in 2006 or early 2007 and I was not impressed.
I won’t lie: you are going to hear a lot about this topic if you choose to stay around.
Because I live in Canada, and not in a part that has a lot of Naija men, my friends have asked me over and over again why I think I’m going to marry a Nigerian.I define security as refuse, sanctuary, defense, protection, precaution, safety. The man was in his late fifties or early sixties, as dark and greasy as la raccoon laid back as a stretcher, and couldn't be considered handsome by any standards imaginable.Love is the most misunderstood word in the English language. Simon Onyekwere had missing front teeth, the few good ones he had were extremely large and gave him the appearance of a chimpanzee.I see this boyfriend/husband of mine helping me increase my knowledge of Nigeria, laughing or mocking my mispronunciations of words and correcting me when needed.(This might be a good time to mention that I grew up reading fairytales and reading romance novels).I am only a member of one Nigerian forum at the moment but I know of Talk Naija, Naija Ryders, Nairaland and Naija Youth.
