Husband Privileges Are For Husbands!





For seven years he was my only boyfriend. I moved in with him after 1 & half years of our relationship. On the third year I hinted marriage subject. He ignored it. I abandoned the subject and continued to be good to him. Yes I was good to him, in everyway. One Sunday evening, (is it evening or afternoon?) whatever you call that time of the day, we were watching Our Perfect Wedding and it was a chance for me to start the subject again. He then started to caugh, I gave him amanzi and the coughing stopped. I told myself that today he will speak to me about this. And indeed he responded. .

Babe, I just got a new job which pays more money for me to can be able to afford lobola and other stuff. I smiled. There was hope... 7 years into the relationship, and 13 months in his new job.....i am still hoping. You should see his 6 roomed house. I cleaned it, did washing and ironing, I cook, baked 
for him, I even bought the most beautiful curtains and bedding in all 3 bedrooms. You should see the 

pots I use....i bought them at Queens with my bonus last year. And every time he hosts his friends at home for their usual social codesa gatherings, I use the best dishes and glasses. He loves it when they tell him he has done well for himself.


I think I have collected about a hundred and seventy eight CDs that I have been buying for him as presents over the past seven years. There is also a Lee Oscar CD there. He uses 3 ply toilet paper.
Okay...i went to his office after he asked me to pass by one day because I left my job early and when I got there at reception, the receptionist (Michelle) called his office and told him "there is a lady at reception by the name of Phindi for you."



Let me cut a long story short and say to you that today as I'm seated here (Sat 24 Dec 2016)

Thabiso is getting married to the receptionist (Michelle) in Witbank.
I am back home. .

And you know what? My mother's home was neglected all these years by me. The curtains in this house are torn and worn out. Bedding is embarrassing I can't even open the bedroom door. Old and burnt Hart pots and no decent glass to have my Schweppes Granadilla. I use lebekere. Thabiso told me it is over and he fell in love le Michelle on the 6th week at his new job and he wants to bring her to his home, I should therefore make way for her. He paid lobola while I was still cleaning his house and cooking his favorite meal braaipap and cooked short ribs. .


All my things are still at his house and I did not fetch them because I kept hoping that he will one day call me and tell me that he did a mistake and he wants me to come back. It is now 9 

months since I left and he hasn't called. I passed by his house one day in my friend's car and she was washing my curtains.

Michelle the receptionist was washing my curtains. She has 2 kids. I have none. She has him, I don't.


I'm shattered. But tomorrow I'm going to buy curtains for my mother at Marabastad. They are nice and affordable. Will add 6 glasses, 4 cups and a kettle. There is no kettle at home.

Thabiso has my 3 piece Russell Hobbs set and my Woolworth towels.....and Michelle has the ring, but I cooked for him
💔💔💔

Source @nigerianwedding (Instagram). I don't know if this is a work of fiction but i do know that this is so many young women's reality. It's such a sad situation. We keep hearing, don't give boyfriends "husband privileges" but some of us naively think the best way to make him husband is to give him husband privileges. 

I hope we stay guided...

  1. If he is not talking marriage after at most 4 years and he is in a good place to get married, skip biko. Don't be spending your money building a home for someone else.

  2. This is funny.

    Just yesterday I was telling a friend the same thing. No girl should ever clean a guys house, wash his clothes, buy things in his house etc until you guys are on the path to marriage.
    Personally, I hate girls doing anything for me. Dont come to my house and even wash the plate your ate from. Leave it! Ill wash it myself.

    Peace

  3. I think this(staying guided) goes for both parties, if you are gonna invest this much emotions,energy and resources into bae....what are you doing for yourself? It's common for some men of a certain tribe to sponsor a young lady through school while staying uneducated themselves. It's just so unreasonable, what about you?

    Finally no matter how 'nice' you are to bae,bae will still marry someone else if he/she wants to. Do not suffocate bae with your 'overdo',give it your best shot but don't be excessive. it's been often proven 'when the desirable becomes too available, pretty much soon it won't be desired again'

  5. A TWISTED VIEW OF MARRIAGE

    People will see a man washing his clothes and instead of minding their business,they'll say "Ahh Oga Ejike,go and marry so you'll stop washing".

    They'll see a man cooking and be like "Bro Ade,you need to get married so you can stop cooking".

    A mother will look at his 35years old son who cannot wash his own boxers,boil water for tea or even make his own bed....a 35years old that cannot take his plates to the kitchen after eating and tell him "James,you need to settle down....get a woman to take care of you".

    In different ways,the society subconsciously tell men that they don't marry women for any reason other than cleaning,cooking and childbearing.

    I begin to wonder,does the average Nigerian man need a wife or a glorified maid?
    Many women look 3times their age because of stress and exhaustion.

    You sit down in front of the TV with your phone a d watch your wife work until she's about to pass out.

    Men, who told you that it is wrong to wash your own plates?
    Who told you that it is wrong to wash your own clothes?
    Who told you that it is wrong to dress your bed when you wake up?
    What will it take to help your partner with chores in the house?

    If a man wanted to be adopted as a child to be pet,pampered, fed and nursed. Then,he need not to seek marriage, he should rather offer himself up for an adoption at a motherless home to be pick up.

    If you want a wife.....then get wife.
    But if you are getting married because you feel you're becoming too old to do your own chores then get a maid. May the good Lord give all men the divine grace of positive understanding to assist their wives daily.

  7. Too many women are hustling for marriage with the wrong set of men. The assumption is if you kill him with kindness and smother him, he will choose you. Experience cobtibues to show many men end up with the women they have to audition for and get her attention. Men also seem to like women for whom they continously audition for.

    1. Actually, too many women are hustling for marriage! Many have lost their identities in the quest too grab a man.

      Sad thing is that many of these girls don't even want any counsel. O ti su mi!

  9. I didn't even bother to read her story to the end after the first few lines. She should take heart and move biko I cannot speak English.


    If I am to do anything at the guys house, it is either I am also in need of the act or I decided to do something special for him. I cannot come and go die because of a man.



    All these story that touch makes me want to smash my phone reason why I don't bother reading them.

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!
