Beauty, success not good foundation for marriage


The glorification of materialism is affecting the way we love. We are in a world where the kind of car he drives, the places he hangs out, how curvy she is or the kind of car she drives are top on the list when  considering someone to date.

One wonders what happened to the old way of looking at the character first and the connecting of hearts before anything else.

When he has no guts to propose


In our culture women are not supposed to pursue a man let alone propose. Men are supposed to be in charge, to know what they want and to pursue it. Women on the other hand are to be passive and wait for the man of their dreams to come along. But what happens when that man you love lacks the courage to either ask you out or even propose?

Valentine’s day is over, but love shouldn’t be

February 17, 2015 Leave a comment

It has been proven over the years that Valentine’s Day is a day of key love decisions. It is the one day in a year that probably experiences the highest number of engagements and break ups. I am certain that this year’s Valentine’s Day which fortunately or unfortunately fell on a Saturday was no different. It is likely many were ‘dumped’ for failing to meet the expectations of their loved ones while the lucky ones got hitched for the opposite. Now that the day is gone, lets critically look at its impact on love.

Lies cheaters tell

February 7, 2015 Leave a comment

Cheating is wrong whether you have a dozen reasons or not. Interestingly many of those who do it know this but continue doing it probably because as they say `stolen waters are sweeter.` In most cases the cheating is based on a lie or two that the cheaters and their accomplices want to be true. Below are three most misused lies.

1. I am happier with you than my spouse
When the going gets tough at homeListen to many spouses who cheat and this is likely to be their number one excuse to cheat. However this is the biggest lie of all time. For many people who cheat there is something extra they are looking for out there. From looking for some extra cash, to freekier sex, respect and the like. Read more…

The narrative for girls looking for a suitor on the fm radios and on social media is predictable: financially stable, committed, a man of class and one who knows how have fun in that order. Listen to radio shows on relationships and you will realize that this trend haunts many relationships and marriages. The problems that dating/married people complain about show clearly that the young people of our generation could be going down the wrong road on relationships.

Navigating the murky waters of wedding planning

November 11, 2014 3 comments

Competing interests during the wedding planning have the potential of disrupting a marriage before it even starts. Disagreements on the budget and the role of relatives in the wedding have led to broken relationships and even divorce later in life. It is therefore important for a couple planning to get married to wisely manage the expectations of their relatives, the budges and most importantly how they relate as a couple.

The Curse of Rushed Love Decisions

Rushed decisions are one of the biggest causes of pain in many relationships.

Whether it is saying yes to love proposal or breaking up a relationship, many have ruined their lives because of making decisions at the heat of the moment.  Although we can never be 100% sure that the decisions we make will be good in the run, taking time to make them helps insulate us from considerable pain. A few tips can help us make sound love decisions:
Sober up before making that decision

Take time to think through your decisions

Take time to think through your decisions

So often we make regrettable love decisions because we act at the heat of the moment. Whether it is that decision to fall in love or ‘fall out of it’ taking time to think through it could save you regrets. I have seen people who get hurt because they did not take time to think through the decision to say yes to a proposal. The easiest way to differentiate infatuation and true love is taking your time. Don’t be in a hurry, let love grow on you. Read more…
