The Good Husband.








So it's an easy Sunday afternoon, the weather is gorgeous and I'm feeling very chilled. I pour myself a glass of cider, fill it up with ice, get a platter of mixed nuts and I'm good to go. Sundays are great because I often have the day to myself and there's no one's company I love like mine. I snuggle into the sofa and go straight to instagram. I'm not in the mood for the filtered pictures and the pseudo perfection of people's lives. IG is not a place for "real" but I wanted real, and I wanted instagram. I knew instantly where I could get it. 

@joroolumofin's page never runs out of interesting reads and that one up there is hard evidence. 

I don't know if I'm jaded or simply a realist but this mail got me feeling some type of way. God bless all the good husbands out here! We know these days there's a scarcity of you men. But I couldn't quite help but feel like aunty's husband is merely a smooth operator. Also I might have gagged in my mouth when I read "we pray before and after making love so it can be beautiful in God's eyes". Like, who does that? LOL. And taking permission before making new friends? Hmmm. 

But maybe I'm just a cynic and such marriages do exist. 

Anyhoo, you read it, what do you think? 

If your marriage is similar to this, meaning such magical marriages do exist, then please tell us about it too, we need more inspiring stories about marriage these days.

  1. The problem with telling people how good your marriage is, is because of the way you reacted after reading about that woman's marriage. They pray before and after sexy time shoot, who am I to sneer at them eh? It's working for them no. Smooth operator or not, the main ish here is that three years into her marriage, she's happy, her partner makes her happy, she's at peace, she loves and is being loved right back. What more are we looking for...

  2. I was going all awwwwwwwwwwwwwww when I read the prayer before and after meal (sex) line. Really?

    B2b I believe that there are even much more blissful marriages on earth, and more to come.

    My husband is the sweetest and most blessed Man, I shall call him Faithful, Obiagulu'm oyi. Amen.

  3. This aunty is sleeping on a bicycle. Men like these are the biggest cheaters. They just know how to handle their runs very well. I bet he has a phone he leaves at the office. I'm laughing in French.

  7. Hian!! Pray after sex? I greet you and your husband o. Truth be told at first read i said " made up story",but on second thought this is how marriage ought to be. Minus the praying after sex and taking permission before making new friends.

  8. Thelma and Blink tho.... Why do you guys think it strange to pray before and after sex?! Loooool! the first time I heard about it, it sounded funny and Ridiculous but when I gave it better thought... It made sense. I think it's a wonderful thing to do.

    Plus the guy might actually be genuine but like Lohla said that's the problem with sharing how Good things are going for you. It would always seem too good to be true. I guess people are so used to hearing bad things/news/stories that good ones now seem unreal and fictitious.

    1. The only reason I can think about praying before and after sex is if you're hoping to conceive. Other than that then sorry, no can do. After all we're talking about married couples abi? It's already blessed by God! Look, sex is meant to be dirty, hot, steamy, raunchy, orgasmic, even when it's emotional love making. Why take the fun out of it? Pray about what again? Hian.

      Delete
    2. After the whole action who has energy to pray? Lol.

      I don't think I'll subscribe to that though, but if you feel the need to do so, then GODSPEED. After all it's prayer, nothing harmless about it.

      Delete
    3. Thelma lol. All these oversabi people, is it praying for strength to last long or praying for the thing to be sweet? They pray so that it can be beautiful in God's eye? What nonsense? Why will sex between husband and wife be ugly in God's eyes? Some people are just ridiculous honestly.

      Delete
    4. I actually like the prayer routine they have going on s weird asit sounds. like a prayer b4 a meal and thanksgiving after. experiment for the week found. Thelma pls expect an email

    5. Kabouy nne when your adrenalin is pumping and you want to eat him up, say sweet nothing and some dirty talk, then the man goes "dear father thank you for giving me strength in advance, perfect my stamina, speed and skills to a beautiful love making and baby, amen".

      Shou! It won't be sweet again na! He would probably say okay Kabouy lie down let me kiss u, open your legs wide...Mbanu,or after sex when he would be roaring like a lion saying Kabouy you are sweet. Mtcheeew you sef check am, e no join.

      Even when trying to conceive couple should pray during praying hours and trust Father to have heard and answered. Unless they want angel Micheal and Co to watch live porn. OK bye

      BTW I am supposed to be dressing up for morning session and work after, well glad I won't be commenting in my head anymore.

    6. Rotfl!!!!! Dirty kwa?! Loooool. You people should cut me some slack. My opinion might change when I get married. I'm still talking from an outsider's point of view. Looool @ no strenght after the lovemaking. I thought about that too but well... Whatever works Jor. Don't just shoot the idea down abeg. It is not ridiculous. To each his own.

    7. Yes dirty, and not in the literal sense. But since you don't know what I mean by dirty then I think it's best we wait till you get married and have this talk again.

  9. It's because people read a lot of bad marriages online that they can't even believe when they see a genuine one. I've seen good marriages n I've witnessed bad marriage.
    I'll start with the bad one. I used to live with a woman who I babysit for. Her husband is a doctor n comes home occasionally on weekends. I thought they were perfect till this man ask me to sleep with him. I couldn't tell his wife so I found an excuse to leave the house.
    Now to the good marriage, it's that of my pastor n his wife(Dcns) I just don't have the words to describe that marriage. Pastor is so disciplined n selfless. He helps with house chores n all. If their 3 yr old wakes up at 4am to ask for cereal, Pastor is the one that gets up to give it to her. They're best friends. Dcns always encourage us(single girls) to wait for our turn cos God gave her a gift in my pastor. Every Christmas, all the students in our church who didn't travel home to Nigeria will all be invited for a massive feast in their house. They're so accommodating. I just watch them n drool. They made living in the UK fun even though I was far from home. Seeing a couple who loves God so much n have given themselves to the ministry is such a hope for single Christian brothers n sisters out there. Dcns used to tell us how they'll set themselves on a soul winning task weekly before they even got married. Sometimes you'll think pastor is calling your phone but by the time you pick it's gonna be Dcns talking n she'll go "oh i just felt like calling you with the phone in my hand". She has his password n he has hers. They have a joint account but Dcns is the only signatory to that account. There's so much I can say about them but I'll stop.Please guys don't loose hope that there aren't good marriages out there.Ask yourself about your own personality n fix it cos it's all about selflessness.

  11. True. Good marriages do exist. It's sad that people are used to to hearing about bad ones that the good ones seem untrue.

  12. this is not bout seeing a lot of bad marriages.something doesnt just feel right bout it.asides praying before and after sex(like who has the tym for dat wen u are already turned on),then talk bout taking permission to make new friends and telling you when a woman hits on him mehn dat I dnt buy.except u guys are not inlove but just in a comfortable marriage.I know there are a lot of sweet marriages as well as bad and am nt married fine bt I cant be that perfect,if a guy is dat perfect I smell a rat...my own two cents

  13. Tell you before he makes new friends?that is creepy. Praying before and after sex so it will be beautiful before God,is she implying that without prayers their sex will be "ugly" before God?

    There is something seriously creepy about that marriage. J

  14. It is true that good marriages do exist but because we have heard about so many bad marriages we sometimes forget how marriage should truly be.
    Some people dont talk about how good their marriage is because people will not believe them or people will try to find a way to destroy it by sowind seed of doubt with questions like are you sure he is not cheating? etc
    I have seen men who grew up with their dad cheating on their mom and these guys determined in their heart not to cheat and be better men than their fathers.
    Truly no one is perfect but when you marry your best friend,your own man/woman,both of your imperfections will create a perfect union as long as you put God first.

  15. I believe the poster. Married to a great man as well and I'm thankful to God. There are a lot of great men out there , however you also have to be a great woman. Some women bring out the beasts in men.

    2. Thank you.
      you get what you give, when I'm a monster my man (who is an angel by the way) becomes a beast and vice versa.
      I dont blame anyone that doesn't believe this story- everything is in your head, its all about your perspective and past experiences.

  16. Like everyone said it's very easy to be cynical about a great marriage! Which also requires hard work to keep it great but great non the less! I have a fantastic husband and a great marriage.
    A man that puts my needs before his own
    He pushes me to be great
    He has a fantastic job and still pushes to do better
    He is a great lover and a great provider
    He sacrifices everything so I can have it all
    He is domesticated and a prayer warrior
    He baths his daughter every night, even after a long day at work cus he knows it's not easy to be at home with a baby all day
    i do not lack a single thing
    We make decisions together
    I have all his passwords and he has mine
    Even though he goes and makes the money for now we decide how to spend it together
    He does not keep late nights
    No strange woman calls him
    He does not keep any bad company
    He wakes up an pray for hours EVERY single night and come and annoit his daughter and I while we sleep
    When I have a complain he listens and makes changes
    And when he makes his complains I try in my power also to make good
    I applaud his mother cus she did a BRILLIANT job raising him

    I have a great man and I'm not ashamed of it
    People should speak up if they do so the devil is not winning by destroying the institution of 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

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!
