Baby-Mama Cohabitation. Yes or No?

Hello beautiful people! When I saw this on @derrickjaxn page I just had to ask y'all. One of our blog readers is facing/faced a similar situation, she didn't ask me to post it or anything, we just talked about it. In her own case she had no choice but to say yes. The blog reader isn't married to the guy yet though, and that's partly why she had limited say in the matter; they aren't married, although they live together it's his house, and I guess it came to the point of "if you don't like it you're free to leave, I love you but I can't turn my child away". And of course the mother wouldn't leave her child and stay elsewhere, it's a package deal, unfortunately. 

So back to the question...


  1. Hell no ,married or not married
    He should get her another place or am leaving

  2. Hmmmn, no o. I can't shout. We would rent a place for her even if it's a mini flat but to come into my matrimonial home, capital NO. As some yorubas would say "once debe,forever debe". You can trust everyone but not the devil in them.

  3. Hmmmn, no o. I can't shout. We would rent a place for her even if it's a mini flat but to come into my matrimonial home, capital NO. As some yorubas would say "once debe,forever debe". You can trust everyone but not the devil in them.

  4. No oh!!! Get her an apartment

  5. Hi Tee..I just got the credit .Thanks a lot and God bless the giver

  6. God help me*in madea's voice*....I can't and wouldn't allow it happen..Is the guy alright at all?I would rather leave than sleep next room to a baby mama returnee.......Can't help but lol at the picture,makes me remember Byronnnnnnnnnn,ronnnnnnnnnn....TNHW..

  7. Thanks Thelma, I have gotten the credit. God bless both you and the giver

  8. Bad idea, very bad idea.

    Aa different scenario happened to someone I know. Let's call her Debs.

    So Debs had a friend that was stranded due to heavy downpour. She was still very far from home and needed a place to stay the night.
    She recalled that Debs had a boyfriend that lives in Lekki, so she hollas. Debs to ask for permission to stay at her boos place (they both know boo anyway bbut boo asked Deb out).

    Deb was reluctant but felt she could help and called Boo. Her boo ddidnt like the ideaa but also wanted to help.

    Short of the matter, the friend seduced boo and they had sex that night.

    The boo was remorseful and told his babe, they parted ways, but later hooked up again mmonths later.

  9. This is happening live to a friend of my mum, slightly different scenario because they live in different states, so the husband's son was preparing for his introduction and "Anne" my mum's friend says to him, it will only be right for your mum to be present for the marriage( someone that abandoned him years ago), so he did and now the woman claims she is stranded and homeless, the husband allowed her to stay also claiming since Anne doesn't live in the same state with him, the lady can be cooking and cleaning for him, he also doesn't have money to rent even a room for her because he isn't that buoyant, orishirishi, one chance marriage.

  10. Thanks to the giver and the messenger lols. I've gotten the credit God bless you both Indeed.

    Co habit with boo's baby mama? Hell naaaa. Doesn't make a bit of sense

  11. It's a natural no.....The tendency for them to restart from where they stopped is quite high. One shouldn't leave a fire on the roof and go to sleep. Regardless that my husband is trustworthy, I wouldn't allow it because I may trust my husband but do I know the intention of the baby-mama? More so, only very few men can overcome a sexual temptation when cornered. It's just too risky.


    1. Ok,u wldnt allow it so what's plan B?
      If he rents a place for a yr,he might have to continue paying the rent as long as she's unmarried!

    2. I just saw this.
      Plan B would be that he seeks custody of the child. One parent's disability to cater to the needs of a child is enough grounds for the other parent, so long s/he's capable, to take custody of that child. I wouldn't mind having the child live with us and the parents (my hubby and the child's mum) make arrangement for her to meet with her child on a pre-agreed regular basis and venue.


  12. She should go an stay with his parents. Some things a5rent worth the stress. Either that or rent a place for her. End of discussion.

  13. Ur child remains ur child whether ur married to the mum or not. If she has accomodation problems,its a sign she has other problems and I wld advice the man to start filing custody for his child.
    Some women can be heartless and use the child to spoil someone's happiness and marriage.
    If ur man has a child outside wed-lock (either before or after marrying u),u shld prepare urself for anything

  14. Boo Boo Kitty *In Cookie's Voice*

  15. Bad idea. He should get a place for baby mama to avoid unnecessary drama.

  16. At this point I guess we should all give it up for Annie Idibia and all others ready for "anything" *#icantshout

    To d mata, a man who not just loves his wife but who also respects her wouldn't even think it twice but because his child is involved, he calls a family member or friend to pls accomodate dem for a short period of time, he could visit if he so wishes and drop somethings for them and even help wth the hunt for an apartment for her so they can leave faster.
    The woman sef no go like stay again because her plans just flopped! Its good to marry smart men people.

    1. Lol. Ok,so when he calls up a family member or friend to accommodate them,for how long is this gonna be? Till she can get a place of her own to stay??? (and who pays for this place)?
      Let's keep sentiments aside. A man has a duty to his child not his baby mama. If she's having accommodation issues,you take ur kid from her,have ur kid with u or with a family member but let her go sort herself out.
      If ur paying child support and she trying to use it as an avenue to milk u,just get full custody of ur child.

    2. We re saying the same thing honey. The bottom line remains that the lady doesn't come home! He could take his child if he so wishes.

    3. Let's not forget that the child might also refuse to stay with his dad and nobody but his mum (let's say he z abit grown), in this case, he also caters for both at the same time but not in his home! U gat my point?

    4. What age are we looking at in ur 2nd response? Na,the tantrums of a child shld not be tolerated. The mum can visit whenever but the child stays with family whether the child like likes it or not.
      So,women who are against ladies having kids for married men but think with a single guy is better,this post is actually for u. Cos it's his future wife who wld have to deal with this drama (knowing that his child is older than all of hers)

  17. Hell to the NO! For what now! God forbid bad thing o.

    His only options will be to either take the child from her and bring him/her to our house or find somewhere for them to live but I won't agree to let him bring her under my roof.

  18. All the sentiments going round Sha...
    Please its just a 'baby mama'. Baby mamas are wat they are cos hubby has chosen u over her, so why the insecurities? Or no one trusts their hubby enough?

    You are living in the same house and you are scared you might lose him? Is that the reason for the 'hello nah' 'cant deal' 'never gonna happen'?.

    Please be considerate for the baby atleast. Haba. He gotta shelter his baby anytime anyday. What If the man doesnt have enought budget to house him somewhere else as at that point, she should go and live underbridge with the innocent baby abi?

    Abeg its just for a moment, be calm and let it pass by. At least u can take the responsibility of being the matured one. As ladies. Thanks

  19. And it's a No for me! She best sort her self out. Her child moving in or not is left to the hubby and her to decide. Either way, I won't be accommodating to her.

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
