Relationship statuses explained.

Married: one who is united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognised by law.

Separated: when married individuals no longer live together as a loving couple, they are said to be separated. It more often than not precedes divorce.

Divorced: a married couple whose bonds of matrimony have been terminated and/or cancelled under the rule of law of the particular country and/or state. A member is said to be divorced.

Engaged: one who either made a pledge to marry someone and the pledge accepted or a person who a pledge of marriage is made to and that person accepted. Most of the time they use a ring to seal it. If you use other words such as "betrothed" and "affianced" here, you won't be wrong.

Taken: when people are in relationships and unavailable, the subtle way to describe them is that they are "taken"

It's Complicated: is any relationship that is not working as desired by it's members. It's an umbrella sheltering different relationship problems and people use this phrase when they are not comfortable/not in the mood to narrate the details of what their relationship problems are/were.

Dating: If you are going out with someone on a regular basis with or without agreements, you are dating

In an open relationship: this is very deceptive in my opinion. I see these people as the very opposite of the people who are taken. Members here are in a relationship but are still available. Correct me if I'm wrong.

In a relationship: one who is in an emotional or having sexual affair with the opposite sex where feelings are mutual.

Single: someone who is not married or involved in a romantic relationship.

Serious relationship: No clue.

The above are all the relationship statuses I know but I can't seem to rap my head around what to be "in a serious relationship" which I hear very often around means.

I await your contributions nairalanders.

One that would most likely lead to marriage. Hence, no room for compromise.

It falls in the category or "Relationship", but we add serious to show both parties are committed to each other and would likely get married in the future, even though not officially engaged.

So people do enter in a relationship which is not serious? shocked

Why not call it "flirting" or "flirtatious relationship" outrightly?

Serious relationship is one where
both people genuinely have feelings for one
another and can envision their bond lasting
for a long period of time. When you're serious
about someone, you can see yourself loving
them forever. So that means you're willing to
be dedicated and committed to them no
matter what.





Serious relationship; when the relationship is serious tongue grin grin

Is President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Really Bad?
(As wrtten by -Yusuf Adeyanju Yisau)- I think he
has done well. I challenge the Buhari supporters
give me 10 things Buhari has achieved for this
country.
1] Goodluck Jonathan signed FOI bill that Obasanjo
refused to sign and you join then in saying that
Goodluck is bad.
2] Goodluck approved N18,000 Minimum wage
from N7,500 Which Obasanjo refused to sign and
you say that Goodluck is bad and NYSC allowance
from N7,500 to nearly approved N39,500, yet they
say he is bad.
3] Goodluck dualized federal roads (about
25,000km) which Obasanjo and past Govts
abandoned and you say Goodluck is bad.
4] The rail system is working now, with little
budget But Obasanjo Sunk billions of dollars
without result, other pasts leader ignored and you
say that Goodluck is bad.
5] Goodluck has been conducting free and fair
elections whereas the ones conducted under
Obasanjo are Shameful and national disgrace yet
you say Goodluck is bad.
6] Goodluck established 12 new universities, 9 in
the North to improve learning and knowledge and
increase the Jambites admission rate, yet you say
that Goodluck is bad.
7] Goodluck established the Almajiri system for
Northern abandoned street children and those
deprived of education by their own people and you
say Goodluck is bad.
8] Goodluck has been building dams and improving
the country's power from 2500mW to 6,000MW -
And successfully privatized the sector which many
analyst believed is the best way to go and you
joined them say that Goodluck is bad.
9] Agriculture have been revamped and for the first
time in Nigerian history, Food prices came down
during Christmas, instead of skyrocketing and you
say that he is a bad President.
10] 2013 and 2014 was the Christmas in Nigeria,
where Nigerian did not sleep in filling stations for 3
to 4 days to get Petrol or 100s of people being
roasted alive in attempts to get fuel in petrol
stations, wickedly, you joined them to say that our
God given President is not performing.
11] Airports are wearing world class looks and
every zone have International airport and you say
Goodluck is bad.
12] This administration has employed more people
in their 5years in office than any other in the
history of Nigeria [Via Agric, Energy sector,16 New
Car Companies, 12 New Universities, 3,826 primary
Health care Centers, Teaching Hospitals] SURE-P,
YOUWIN and you say Goodluck is bad.
Now do you think that General Muhammadu Buhari
will perform magic, which he could not do when he
was in his 40s, if you vote him?
What else do they want from President Goodluck
Ebele Jonathan?

Its means you will never smile in the relationship... You need to carry a serious face always.. #constant chin up.
See excerpt below
The following conversation ensued between me and my
girlfriend, Ada.
Ada: Arvinsloane, I’m tired of this relationship.
Me: Why, what’s wrong?
Ada: Since we’ve started dating, you haven’t laughed or
smiled at me.
Me: (surprised) Wasn’t it you that said you wanted a
serious relationship?
