Kosalabaro:It’s the truth, like it or not. It is easier for a wife to call a man who provides money for food at home ‘daddy’ or ‘my lord’ than the one his wife has to give subsidy. Every wife loves a cheerful giver, in and out of bed. Too many men these days are too busy doing so many things that they do not notice how dissatisfied and unhappy their wives are. They just move from day to day believing their marriages are perfect just because they are good in bed and are picking the right bills. Great. There’s more to being a husband than just paying the bride price and buying a designer wedding gown. It even goes beyond performing your conjugal duties. Every woman loves a man who leaves her ‘finished’ in bed.

Okebadan : What is the meaning of this early morning sermon, are you an angry bride, or a frustrated groom and then end up in unhappy marriage. ?

Kosalabaro: I'm just expressing my view about your message yesterday as a good citizen of my country. And reacting to your post on single mother is in good direction .

Okebadan : Hummmm. Where I advise people to "Stop discriminating against single mothers, their wives is another man's ex girlfriend. I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom." When a woman walks out of a 10 year old marriage, don’t box her into a stereotype corner and dragged her to Golgotha and nail her to a cross.

Kosalabaro: That's a fantastic write up. You made my day yesterday. Many people don't take a good look at their wives :beneath the designer make up, layers and layers of founda­tion and powder there are internal suffering and agony. Many women have uncommon talent to bottle things up which is why they have enough space on their inside to carry as many as 2 to 4 babies at a time . When she eventually flips her lid, it’s because she’s been logging her pain around for so long. You do not know how long she had been in pain and tried and tried for this not to happen.

Okebadan: The same thing with men. Some wives are in the habit of comparing their marriage. The problems your friend is facing in her marriage are different from yours. That woman you envy may have one big messy marriage and probably wishes she was in your shoes. Many wives can’t even remember the good, old times when they felt on top of the world and believed their husband was the best thing that ever happened to them. They are quick to compare their marriage without thinking that every marriage has a foundation. Some are based on rituals, some on money, some on spiritual binding. And many on naivety. When trouble looms or befalls a marriage or the woman is feeling gloomy, the next practical thing she begins to do is wishing she were somewhere else, some­body else’s wife. They wonders how they ended up where they are . Didn’t their mother warn them? And they almost didn’t marry their husband. They will now realise that their man is not the best and warning their children not to fall into the same trap. Forgotten that there is no perfect husband or wife. Every marriage has a cross, you carry your own cross and I carry my own. If you think your own cross is too big , drop it and go inside to test the remaining cross on ground .You will have cause to thank your star. When things get tough in the home and a marriage seems to be having trouble, the tendency to com­pare our situation unfavourably with another’s is quite high. Any married couple who wants to be honest with themselves will own up, to having fallen into that temptation once or twice.

Kosalabaro: The bottom line is to make God the Alpha and Omega of our marriage. This technicalities you are proven above is easier said than done. Many teachers of marriage but few practice what they teach. See you on Sunday.

Please read this carefully, it may save you a few hundred, or a few thousand, or may be a few million bucks. It's a personal experience, a true event that happened this afternoon. I am Sunday Adewole, I just fell victim of fraudsters a few hours ago. I am an account holder with StanbicIBTC bank, I am trying to put fund together to pay for my daughter's tuition fee in CU in which case the institution already resumed last week. Yesterday afternoon, I got a call from somebody purportedly from StanbicIBTC who said "Am I speaking with Dr. Adewole" (called out my other names) to which I answered in the affirmative. He said he called in respect of my BVN which I was observed not to have done, I replied that I already had it done with Skye bank and he said the bank will send me a link so that my account with Stanbic will be linked with the BVN. True to our conversation, I receive a message from StanbicIBTC in which an OTP was sent to my phone. A few minutes later, he called to ask if I got the the SMS, I told him yes but I can't do anything about it cos I was driving. He said no problem I should call out the numbers which I did and he thanked me for my cooperation in a customer service manner. I heard nothing since then till this afternoon at precisely 13:00 hrs when I received a SMS from StanbicIBTC informing me of a debit transaction which cleared my account to the lowest thousand, i.e. I was left with a paltry N685 (six hundred and eighty five naira). I called my account officer who confirmed to me that I have fallen victim of fraudsters and he checked up on my account and saw that the recipient acct is in First Bank. My puzzle is how did they get my account details? How were they able to generate an OTP to my phone. I am waiting to see what my bank would do on it. In the mean time, please be aware of what the 419 people can do. I'll keep you posted on any new development..........Funky ... See MoreSee Less
