Yesterday a very dear friend of mine got married. Classy venue, fantastic food, beautiful guests, a fantastic band and a very funny MC. The MC was one of the few funny ones I've been opportuned to witness. However there was this statement/joke he kept on making. I'll have to paraphrase. "Married women here hold your husbands very tight o! Because all these single girls, you can never tell what they're capable of" and "Wives, there are many single girls here o! May God blind the eyes of any single girl eyeing your husbands". Maybe it's the fact that he kept making this joke over and over again, or the fact that I am indeed single, but at some point I felt like I was going to get up and scream SHUT THE HELL UP.Men, and people in general aren't bags that they can be snatched! The way I see it, no one is "snatched" that doesn't want to be.
A man wearing that shiny gold band on the fourth finger of his left hand keeps winking and "cutting eye" for some chic, and if she's so inclined she decides "let's go there", or let's assume that the man was indeed on his own. He didn't approach you, you saw him, whether you knew he was married or not, you gave him the green light and he jumped on it, knowing very well that he's married, tomorrow the girl is tagged husband-snatcher? Really? I'm getting really angry in my spirit! I am Reaching boiling point. I'm incensed.I'm infuriated. (help me out with other synonyms for "angry"). Why is the husband blameless? After all he was the one that stood with you on the alter, before God and man and vowed to love you, he promised to commit to you for the rest of eternity, he is the one who's indebted to you. He is the one who broke a promise HE made to YOU! Why then is some random female the one to blame. She doesn't know you. She owes you nothing. In fact the only one whom she owes an apology to is God, not you. So if your hubby cannot keep it in check, that's your problem with him. I just get so riled up when I hear the term "husband snatcher". Yes, some women have made it their sole purpose on earth to go after other women's husbands, but say for instance, your husband looked her in the face and raised his left hand to her and asked "Can't you see I'm married?", in the months to come you wont have to go to MFM's prayer city, casting and binding, screaming at the top of your lungs "Every strange woman, trying to convert my husband to her own, trying to unseat me from my marriage seat RUN MAD AND DIE! DIE!! DIEEEEEE!!!". No , you see, all that won't be necessary. You will be able to focus of the necessary prayers, like thanking God for the fantastic husband he's blessed you with.
That said, some women ought to change their Facebook status to HOME WRECKER. (Topic for another day).
This is (part of) my two cents on the matter, what's yours?
