"Reasons you are not married" Written by Amara

You are not married not because there is no man ready for marriage as a good number of men are looking for life partners. The major reason Nigerian men are now scared of marriage is waywardness. Men are now afraid because they don’t know who to trust and also not sure if that beautiful girl they are interested in still has her womb intact.

They are also afraid because of the high mountain ladies have suddenly placed themselves on as no woman wants to date a poor man any longer but are all interested in those with good cars and houses.
A man recently told me why he does not allow his girlfriends to come to his house. According to him, he doesn’t want a case where a girl enters his house only for her to refuse leaving because of the beauty of the house and cars she will see.

Isn’t it surprising how single ladies now out-dress married women with good jobs whose husbands are very rich? You are not married because the single men around you are wondering if they will be able to meet up with your ever-demanding lifestyle. Even when they know they can afford it, what makes them believe you won’t take a walk tomorrow if anything goes wrong?

High-heels for little children. Is it OK?

Tom Cruise's daughter, Suri, in high heels
Parenting groups have criticized top retailers for selling high-heeled shoes for girls as young as three, claiming they encourage the sexualisation of children.

Rita O’Reilly, of Parentline.com said: ‘Parents need to say No. A child should be dressed as a child.
'Parents are dressing their children as adults if they are putting them in high heels. I wouldn’t consider it appropriate. We all wore our mother’s heels which is fine.

‘Putting children in adult clothing can sexualise them and make them grow up before their time. Also if you put a young child in heels then they are not able to swing on swings and skip, and other things children naturally do.’

Corper attacked with acid, ex-boyfriend attacker still roaming free

Her name is Onyinye Blessing Agu and in February this year, an ex-boyfriend poured acid on her for ending their relationship two months earlier.

Onyinye was a corper, serving in Badagry West LCDA in Lagos State when the unfortunate incident happened to her.

The victim  became a born again christian, decided to live a new life and didn't think being in a relationship was appropriate, so she ended the relationship she was in with Ifeanyi Collins Ude in December 2010. Two months later, Ifeanyi, who's based in Enugu came to Lagos to visit Onyinye, with evil intentions.

As Onyinye was seeing off her once abusive boyfriend, Ifeanyi brought out a container from the plastic bag he was carrying, poured acid on Onyinye, and ran off.

Amber Rose is angry! Pours her heart out on her blog

Last week, Amber Rose visited an Islamic school in Ghana to speak to the girls in the school about life choices. She received a lot of criticism after the trip. People were basically saying she wasn't a good role model and had nothing to teach young people.  

Amber Rose went on her blog to pour her heart out about all the bad press and criticisms she's been getting for years...and many other things...
From Amber's Blog
“U do something positive in this industry u get scrutinized I really came to the conclusion that it’s not even about me it’s the fact that I’m a woman. Men in the entertainment industry are praised constantly for their “wrong doings”. if ur a drug dealer and u took care of ur family before ur fame everyone understands. If u get shot in the mist of u hustling ur cool as fuck. If a man’s naked pics hit the internet ppl think it’s cute or funny then just talk about how big he is. A Man can date 20 models at the same time and he is respected by the world and if a girl does it she’s a disgusting whore and a “Star Fucker” Women get destroyed by the media and our peers constantly but I am writing this to specifically speak about myslf.”
“Regardless of the fact I dated Kanye for 2 years or the fact I was a stripper at 15 years old or that my most private pics were stolen from me and a new batch hit the internet every week, I am a human being. I’m a daughter, a best friend, a great wife and an all around good person.

Quote of the day

“Gani Fawehinmi would be happy in his grave now. As we look at Tinubu in the dock, our minds went back to that day at Igbosere, Lagos, where legal icon, Gani Fawehinmi, was pelted with sachets of ‘pure water’ by hoodlums sponsored by Tinubu. Our minds also went back to that human rights lawyer, who masterminded the shameful act just because of a few millions of Naira." - Chima Ubeku Society for Rule of Law of Nigeria (SRLN)
