Things that women endure just to keep their marriages

In a place somewhere, a family is about to lose a lifetime opportunity to alleviate poverty just because the opportunity was presented to the woman and the man couldn’t accept the idea because he is the “head” of the family and doesn’t see himself depending on the wife. Stupidity is indeed  bliss.

In another place somewhere, a lady is about to tie the knot with a man who has publicly slapped her on several occasions and one who is known as a chronic woman beater. People tell her to manage him like that because love conquers all. Some people play too much.

In another place somewhere, a man is about to marry a working class lady, knowing fully well that he wants a full time housewife. He has demanded that she will give up her well paying job after marriage and aunty has agreed. This one is a clear case of destiny killers on the prowl.
