So my very good friend rings me a few days ago to report his wife for the upteenth time...

Story is this, they've been married almost a year and he's totally smitten by her. She seems in love too or so it seemed.

Anyway she gets an opportunity to go off to Czechoslovakia to study and work, some HSMP type arrangement and he encourages her to go. The deal they had is if in a year things aren't as planned she returns and they live happily ever after.

Simple enough yeah?

Now after months and months of paying school fees over and over he finally gets her to explain this "Masters" degree she's acquiring from the abroad. Turns out she's only in " Pre-degree" apparently our Bscs and B.As from Africa don't amount to much in Europe and she has to not only start under grad again but she even has to do Pre-degree(equivalent of remedial in Naija). This is a degree holder oh.

Anyway boy says he's not doing again, make she dey come back even though the one year agreement never reach.

Na so babe vex oh, say she no fit come back to Nigeria and that stupid Nepa!!!

At this point, he reported to me (i'm a marriage counsellor of sorts- Afro common close ya mouth LOL).... So i say the normal be patient etc that is expected of me....

She reports to her folks who have the impudence to tell the boy that he shouldn't have allowed the chick go if he was going to change his mind etc and that it's only a few years he should let her finish.

At this point no one is thinking of the fact that one Lagos desperado chick can move in with the guy and enjoy the 'darkness' caused by nepa with him oh....

or worse still they can fall out of love with each other

which is happening right now anyway

They hardly talk and when they do it's just the obligatory "how're u?" etc

So i decide to wade in

and make an international call to the Czech republic....

Conversation was quite as i expected, girl says " ehn she will come home now, sebi the boy has said she should come...
Sha i'm trying to make her see reason as per isn't the marriage important to her bla bla bla

Then she says the most important thing to her is the future of her kids and she wants to give them the best...

So i say " but that's possible in Naija now"

and she kills me by saying that " Naija with bad roads and no light"

At this point i'm almost dropping phone!!!

can you imagine...

She has forgotten that she cannot give any children good future in Czechoslovakia if she no get husband.

I mean what kind of thinking is that???????????

You no wan come meet your husband because of bad roads and Nepa

Orisirisi i tell you

I like your blog.

This thing about separations. It's a sure killer for relationships but no one seems to have figured it out yet. I suffered that kain pain once.
