For two days nonstop, my neighbour has been making series of calls between two people. He is an intermediary and has been trying to broker peace between a married man and his girlfriend. The girl has a child for him, and wants more. MARRIAGE. The man just wants to have more good times. The girl is threatening brimstone and fire, while the guy wants to ‘settle her’ with money and a piece of land. She does NOT want that. Her eyes are fixed on the ultimate prize. MARRIAGE. And as of yesterday, the girl is still insisting she wants the ‘most precious tag of being called MRS’. The action film continues. Me, I am kuku asking my neighbour what his stake is in the whole affair. He has been promised big if she accepts to the terms of settlement and leave marriage tag alone. Our society did this to us. It’s marriage or nothing else.
