On Married Bachelors...




A little over a year ago I remember posting something similar to this. Men, married men particularly get to stay out late, party all night on weekends, take vacations with the boys (or with the girl), all in the name of unwinding, de-stressing, letting loose... And I asked, what does a woman do when she needs to de-stress? Or don't women need it too? I've had some tense arguments with a few married men about this; why is it okay for you to do whatever-wherever-whenever in the name of de-stressing, but not your wife? Do you honestly think it's fair?

They get defensive when they realize they cannot come out with any sensible answer beyond the "I'm a man" excuse, even when they realize that the woman does more work than they do. 

Anyways, so the post above, you already know my thoughts. What do you think?

Do you agree with her entirely, in part or not at all? Let's talk about it. Why do married men get a pass to continue living like bachelors while the woman has no such "luxury"?

  1. Interesting thoughts, I'd say it all depends on the type of relationship the couple has, if they are both understanding of each other and their motives. Greetings!

    1. You do have a point. Each relationship is unique, although this scenario somewhat applies to the average Nigerian marriage...

  2. Largely agree with her perspective.

    However, I differ on the part where she says 'Once in a blue moon with permission from your wife...Yes'. I don't believe any spouse's movement should be restricted by the other party. Informing the other party, Yes; seeking permission, no.

    And like Blogoratti has mentioned, it depends on the couple, some de-stress by late night hangouts with friends, others prefer indoor activities. It'd be unfair to expect the same approach from all married persons. Chrisyinks

  3. Dear Women,

    Life will be easier if yall accept that its a man's World. As at today - the things men do, women cannot do. Not because they dont have the ability but society has not accepted such. Its just reality.
    But I know that society is gradually accepting some things from women but it will take some time.

    Personally. I dont have a prob with my babe hanging out at night with her girls.

    Peace.

  4. Haha, I thank God I didnt marrt one of these types. As for destressing I take my kids to my MIL or mom's house and I go and sleep in one of their beds😂.

    If you marry a street man, you end up with such behaviour. My husband destresses but give advance notice and makes sure I am ok with it. For example he cant go when one nanny is off or I am sick. Its not permission per say but agreement. Often times we destress together - we drop of the children and go out and gist.

    My own is simple, dont give me the type of "shit" you dont want me to give you.

  5. Nobody is stopping married women from distressing, thr are ways around these things. What do u think happens at those 1 week church conferences or work trainings some women travel to attend. I laugh at blind men. Haha

  7. Ok so I want to rant. I had an argument with an uncle today on feminism. While I agree that some women are going overboard on it, I think the woman's right should be fought for. If not for feminism women wouldn't be voting now and would not be going to school etc. So this uncle said all the feminist he is seeing are lesbians, disobey their husband's and Lord their husbands. I tried severally to explain what feminism is but he didn't seem to care saying he knows what Wikipedia says about it but feminist are just bunch of fools. So I told him I was a feminist too. I might be a bad feminist but I don't want to be treated like shit cos I'm a woman.

    This argument got me wondering. So I want to ask some questions, pls forgive me that's it's not related to the post.
    1. Why do men feel threatened, thinking their role in marriage would be displaced due feminism.
    2. Why do people go hundred miles when giving one mile to go. Now I'm talking about people who claim to be feminist but have no idea or have a shaded view of feminism.

    1. Ibukunoluwa, the people you referred to in your questions do what they do because people are different, so most times expect divergent reactions,opinions, beliefs and characters. C'est la vie.

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!

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?

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).
