Dear Married Women, Not Every Girl Wants To Snatch Your Husband!





Look I get it, I know he wasn't easy to come by. Who knows how many months of dry fasting you had to endure? Can the seeds you sowed and the tithe you paid not fill a drum? Who knows how many nights you did 'tdb' studying the Kama Sutra just to clinch the deal and finally get him to put a ring on it? Well we can never know but believe me when I say, I understand.

Still that's no reason for your insecurity. In fact be insecure all you want, I don't care. I only care when you choose to insult me just because you cannot contain this insecurity. Know that when I see your husband the first thing I think is that this is a person, human, man. These are the thoughts before I wonder if he's married or not. Well guess what, because "husband" is not his identity. He is a person first. So when I choose to nod a greeting or smile politely at him, I'm acknowledging a person and not necessarily somebody's husband. 

So when earlier this evening I went to get a few groceries and I was leaving I saw a man almost collapsing under the weight of grocery bags I quickly rushed to help him with one, because that's what people, nice people do, I wasn't thinking this is somebody's husband. I was thinking this is a man that could do with some assistance. Then you can came from behind me and all but pushed me to the ground baring your fangs at me and you gruffly said "thank you I can do it" and not even caring when I lost my balance, you have no idea how humiliated I felt and how embarrassing that was. 

Thus, naturally I'm seething and two hours after I got home I'm still thinking about it. And now that this happened it calls to mind all the times that I've had to change my mind about greeting someone because one madam is at the corner, eyes blazing. Or the times I've wanted to ask him an innocent question but I'd have to direct the question to the Mrs instead lest I be perceived as a snatcher. Yeah, most times I do that out of respect for the Mrs but sometimes it's just plain fear that those fangs might strike. 

And so I've said my piece. I don't doubt that there are girls out there who live to share your husband with you. And no, it's not written on anyone's forehead thus your fangs are always waiting, ready to be bared. But still know that not all of us want to, and when one is polite to your Mr rather than shove her away, remember that he and you are ONE, and as such rather than stand alone and express animosity, unite with him as one and express gratitude or return the courtesy, either with him or on his behalf. 

Thanks.

    I understand the pains, insecurities & anger of these wives, but the Truth is, the wives who express it publicly are the ones who KNOW they are married to DOGS!!! So pardon them...

    Just shift lane next time or kindly ask him "can I get ur wife for U pls?, it's obvious U need her help!"
    ROTFL *the effect this blog has on me.

    1. But so what if he has a ring on? If a man is dying and he has a ring on you should allow him to die abi? A cheating man will cheat, the wife should deal with that fact.

    2. Excess shopping bags isn't equivalent to dying. Talk withing the writeup and stop exaggerating. Ruthy I agree with u.

  4. Yeah. So many paranoid wives in Lagos. You can't really blame them though, most of these snatchers and mistresses come in form of angels and some wives have learnt the hard way.

  5. So she follows her husband everywhere he goes with a sword to fight off husband snatchers?

  6. I guess you will understand better my dear Thelma when u get married. Ruthy has said it all and more. You have no idea what that woman has experienced and she aint taking no chances. She did what she had to to and she isn't wrong. Cmon, I sure you urself has neva encountered a young lady helping a man whether married or not with his bags without having a reason. Insecurities comes with a lot of marriages.

    1. I disagree with u on this. She was wrong to be rude and act in that manner treating a fellow human that way all in the name of insecurity.

      There are better ways to hold a man but the truth is one shouldn't be that rude cos you never can tell what intentions that person has and of course because someone is married doesn't mean he should be ignored when he needs help.

      That's my own view sha

  7. Dear Thelma sowie abt dat ooo. Crazy wives everywhere, but d tin is even if d wife guard d husband with boko boys if dey wana snatch him they will shikena. #Tas#

  8. I think the only guard a woman has over her husband is prayers.Will she go everywhere he goes?if the girl slips her number to the man,will she force the man to call her???even in cases where the husband is a "dog" how many bones will you push away from him?Women need to be smart that kind of behaviour in publicis shameful.SMH ....I'm married btw so no one shld give me "when u r married" sermon

  9. Sorry bt I agree with thelma, the woman was very rude and it was uncalled for, she shud thank God say no be pple lyk us wey get crase she try am for, Utter Rubbish!!!

  10. Thelma sorry your good intentions were perceived badly. Please keep helping folks if your mind tells you to do so. Do not let people change you. Truth is many Nigerian women have made themselves insecure. The man chose to marry them, that they cannot see that is their loss. No matter how much they "protect" if they married dogs, those men will still stray. I always say to women be secure in your choice of a partner, if not you will live your life in misery. I am engaged, i do not cling to my partner when we are out, i let him do all the fraternizing he wants because as far as i am concerned i do my best to keep him happy. If he isnt happy then thats between him and God

  12. And Thelms, next time you see a married man wanting to drop dead from the weight of 'his marriage', pls look the other way.I know its gonna be hard being that you have a good and heart and all but trust me it aint worth the embarrassment!

    1. Mariam it's not even about kindheartedness. I saw an older person carrying load, my sister I decided to help na. I offer the same assistance to women when I think they need it, it honestly didn't occur to me that this is somebody's hubby. Ok. Now I know better.

  14. Ogom egbunam! He could have been anybody and the truth is he needed help. Thanks for helping. Ndo, nwannem! Maybe another day or place, it could have been a pleasant grateful lady but she let insecurity or anger get the best of her. #Enjay#

  15. The visuals of the woman shoving Thelma away and saying thank you I can do it, is to die for. ROTFL.

  17. Lols,can totally relate to this. When ur a retail sales person,expect to see women give u daggers for trying to market and sell stuff to the husband (who to u is just another random customer). As dettol says:if ur not a voltron over ur man,who will...? Lol.
    Sometimes I think all this cld be part of the "fun" for her in her marriage.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
