If only the guy saw the signs and threw in the towel the minute he lost the zeal to continue with medical school.
If only Nigerians minded their own business and stop labelling people who quit university as "drop outs".

Niger Delta Amnesty Payments: Women Protest Youths' Expulsion From Lufthansa Flight School
by Sahara Reporters, New York Jul 23, 2015
Hundreds of women from the Niger Delta region staged a protest on Tuesday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, against thirteen ex-militants youths’ dismissal from pilot school in Germany because of the federal government’s refusal to pay for their fees under its own Presidential Amnesty Programme.
The thirteen ex-militants were undergoing commercial pilot training at the Lufthansa Flight Training School in Frankfurt, but were last week sent away from the institution due to the nonpayment of their fees. Other Niger Delta ex-militants have also been sent packing by their various institutions in South Africa, Russia, Germany, Ukraine, and several more countries in Europe.
During their march to an office for ex-militant leaders called the Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative (LPCDI), the protesting women said President Muhammadu Buhari should be held responsible if there is resurgence of violence in the Niger Delta region. “We are warning Buhari that, as mothers, we are already feeling the heat and the gathering of disgruntled youths in our communities. The refusal to pay the amnesty training fees is causing problems in our homes and communities," one said.
Another of the protesting women, Ebiere Ankiomete, lamented President Mohammud Buhari’s “refusal to appoint a substantive Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Committee to liaise with the Federal Ministry of Finance to pay the amnesty training fund.” She said that delaying until September to make the appointment would have drastic consequences for amnesty beneficiaries already enrolled in approved programs abroad.
LPCDI President and former militant commander Pastor Reuben Wilson appealed for calm but called on President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow the Presidential Amnesty Programme to be starved of funds. He noted the growth of Niger Delta oil production and its substantial contribution to the nation’s coffers, all of which depended upon amnesty payments.

|Politics / Is Alison-Madueke Sponsoring Biafra Breakaway To Avoid Prison For Her Corruption by Ilekokonit: 1:11pm On Jul 19|
Is Alison-Madueke sponsoring Biafra breakaway to avoid prison for her corruption ?
After reading that Buhari Turns Down Former Petroleum Minister Alison-Madueke Offer To Refund $250m and reading the following comment from a contributor referring to Madueke and her accomplices :- Maybe they are speeding up the race for Biafra because they think if they are in Another country they won't be prosecuted http://www.nairaland.com/2461606/buhari-turns-down-former-petroleum/1#36033937
I'm left to ponder the following :-
1. Is it a coincidence that around this same time that Alison-Madueke is undergoing Cancer "Treatment" In London is the very same time that Nnamdi Kanu of Biafra radio who is also in London is intensifying his attack on the Nigerian state by way of trying to split Nigeria up.
2. Are the funds for Nnamdi Kanu's Secessionist "Project" coming from Alison-Madueke's deep but corrupt pocket in the hope that once Biafra breaks away from Nigeria, she will escape to Biafra thus avoiding prosecution in Nigeria for her serious kleptomania and live happily thereafter with her loot in Biafraland.
3. IF the above is the case, is Nigeria not bigger that the greed of "some" corrupt officials
4. These corrupt officials SHOULD NOT be allowed to succeed in their SELFISH agenda of secesssion because Nigeria belongs to all of us and having eaten the VERY BEST from Nigeria's high table, Madueke and co cannot and will not be allowed to butcher up Nigeria (willy nilly) just because they want to run away from prosecution in Nigeria for monumental corruption whilst in office.
5. By the way I am an advocate for corrupt officials of ALL PARTIES and ALL TRIBES (at Local Govt, State and Federal levels) going to prison for their theft whilst in office to serve as a deterrent for future Lootocrats of ALL parties and tribes.
6. Finally someone once wrote that Secession brings the "Threat of Anarchy" because smaller and smaller entities may choose to secede until there is chaos.
7. But ALL corrupt former Government officials of ALL parties and ALL tribes should be probed and jailed.

|Politics / Re: Amaechi, Bakare, Others On Buhari’s 18-Man Delegation To US - Sahara Reporters by Ilekokonit: 4:02pm On Jul 12|
President Goodluck Jonathan Leads 600-Man Delegation To United Nations General Assembly
Nigeria, which has failed to focus on implementing the United Nations Millenium Development Goals, is sending a record 600-man delegation to the 68th General Assembly in New York which will focus on a follow-up plan, SaharaReporters investigations reveal.
by SaharaReporters, New York Sep 22, 2013
The delegation is led by President Goodluck Jonathan, who will speak at the plenary debate on Tuesday. It includes two state governors and the First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan.
The Nigerian delegation is by far the largest of any nation at this year's UN event, the theme of which is: “Post-2015 Development Agenda: Setting the Stage.”
The Nigeria leader, who has been much-criticized for squandering resources and for failing to lead by example, arrived in New York today and is staying at the lavish The Pierre Hotel across from New York’s Central Park in a presidential suite that will cost Nigeria at least $10,000 per night. This means his tab for accommodation alone, for one room, will hit at least $50,000.
According to the hotel’s documentation, the 39th floor presidential suite, which features an expansive living room and two bedrooms, among others, may be combined with other rooms and suites to provide up to 6 bedrooms and a private floor, an opulent option Mr. Jonathan is likely to have jumped at. According to the hotel’s itinerary which was seen by Saharareporters, he is booked for five nights.
Nigeria has become internationally-known for wasting valuable development funds on lavish foreign trips. It would be recalled that during last year’s United Nations General Assembly, for instance, the Minister for Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, booked into two rooms in two different expensive hotels. One of them was a $5,000 per night suite at the Four Seasons Hotel at 57 East 57th Street, and the other a 28th floor room at the Pierre for $3,000 per night. It was unclear how she slept in two different hotels at the same time.
In addition, Ms. Alison Madueke’s delegation of seven from her Ministry also rented 10 limousines, at a cost of $1,800 per day, some of which were never used.
As SaharaReporters reported last year, the profligacy of the Nigerian delegation attracted the attention of America’s National Broadcasting Corporation in New York, which reported on how African delegates from the poorest countries stayed in some of the most expensive hotels during the UN General Assembly and shopped in high-priced retail stores.
Mr. Jonathan will commence his official duties in New York this afternoon by engaging in an all-expenses paid lunch date with Nigerian professionals selected by Nigerian diplomats in the US.
The invitation-only event was chosen after the President and his inner circle abandoned a Town Hall plan for fear of protesters in the New York area.

The lady in the video comes across as being a sincere person who has been genuinely hurt in love.
BUT having said that the lady lives in London and London is "littered" with men hating black women who in most cases are >= 40 in age. A great many of them are also single mothers whilst the other cases are women in their 40's who have never been married but still claim that they are "big girls" who take no poo from men.
A lot of the single mothers single handedly mismanage their first marriages and push their husband out of the house once they get a very good job or once the government gives them enough single parent benefit to augment their low income. They push their husband out in the hope of getting another man "they can control" from the supermarket shelf as it were but they FAIL to factor in that a real black man can NEVER be controlled by a woman unless the man is a greedy man who makes it a habit to live off women and even at that, such a man will not be subservient to a woman forever.
Sooner or later, London Black women and most westernised women will have to make do with sperm banks to father their children and Romance-Machines to keep them company (as they already are doing) because it is almost at a stage that no sane black man wants to put up with a perpetually brash, loud, argumentative and aggressive black woman as a wife / partner. Life is too short to spend it with a black woman who in most cases has a sole "hidden" agenda to be richer that the man who (in good faith) helped her climb up.

Drink more than enough fresh milk and go about your business and it should sort itself out in a day or 2. If you can't get fresh milk, dilute "enough" powdered milk in water and drink it.
To treat the internal hemorrhoids, you may need to use Anusol Suppositories available from any reputable pharmacy.
In the immediate term, avoid any "hard" food such as bread, biscuits, yam, fried meat and eba and don't strain when you visit the loo.
Also, remembering that what goes in one end must come out the other end you should take enough liquid plus oranges at each meal time to constantly hydrate and flush your system since you seem prone to constipation.
On a lighter note, developing a pot belly may be a price you will have to pay to keep constipation at bay by constantly over loading your digestive system with liquids at each meal time but then again constipation if not controlled or contained may become a serious problem as it became for Elvis Presley.

|Family / Re: Bride Price; What Purpose? Who Benefits? by Ilekokonit: 4:46am On Jan 07|
Actually, my post if read and digested was alluding to the high esteem i held carribean men in principally for not allowing their women to push them around and also for not buying into the one wife for life mantra that society advocates.
In fact if i had my way, i want to imbibe some of the carribean man's free spirit into my dealings with women as that way you are not setting yourself up for future heart ache by being loyal to one woman in diaspora who will most likely turn against you in future.
So, my generalisation was not condescending IN ANY WAY. In fact, I see Carribean men in diaspora as heroes for being able to command loyalty and RESPECT from their women in this concrete jungle called black diaspora.
Regarding the response of Vivalableue to my post part reproduced above, Vivalableue is saying I am generalizing without her fully "comprehending" my post to realise that I was actually praising Carribean men for their no nonsense approach to their women and was hoping to imbibe some of this no nonsense approach to women that Carribean men have. But in typical black woman fashion she mis-reads and mis-interprets my admiration of Carribean men's attitudes to mean that I am saying that Carribean men are bad. If only black women would slow down, pause for thought and digest a subject matter before engaging their loud mouths.
Now, the same Vivalableue who says I am generalizing goes on to state the following :- Look at all the ashawo/runs things going on in your own communities. It's blatant, and you have the gall to say our men are bad.
Now, isn't she generalizing by her above statement ?
Yes, she is, but do I have the right to call her silly and stupi.d like she did in her response ? Of course not and I have replied her as I deemed fit in a seperate reply to show her that she does not have a monopoly of insults.
With her conclusion and that of all4naija (who concluded that with my post, I meant that African men usually marry more than one wife!) I have finally realised that a lot of people on this site are mentally lazy and/or lack comprehension skills and instead of reading a lenghty post to the end or if their mental laziness kicks in they should choose to refrain from commenting on something they have not fully read and/or comprehended, BUT what obtains here is than once certain people see lenghty posts from a gender they hate, they quickly scan it for something that will mean offence to them and then they prematurely attack the poster in ignorance thus displaying their own folly for the whole world to see.
I just can't stand women with big mouths especially when I do my best to avoid entering into any discussion with them and I was not even talking to her in the first place.
This site is becoming too toxic for any sane minded person. Its like all the angry and mentally unbalanced black psycho diaspora women congregate here seeking a black man to exercise their feminist witchcraft on.
Their new agenda seems to be that, if black men are avoiding us like a plague and refusing to get married to us or stay permanently with us then we will get under their skin with our feminist witchcraft online since online is the only place they have interactions with black diaspora men.
More things about the character of the 21st Century Black woman becomes clear to you as you interact with or read the mindset of black women online.
Nowadays, I even avoid reading comments from women on Nairaland even if directed at me (although a few women change their gender to male just to have a cover from which to insult men). But if they insult me when I was not talking to them in the first place then this is the only time I respond to them with the same insults they started with.
|Family / Re: Bride Price; What Purpose? Who Benefits? by Ilekokonit: 2:52am On Jan 07|
There is nothing as stabilising for a black man in diaspora as a loyal wife and by loyalty I don't mean just in terms of fidelity. My main thrust is when a diaspora black woman recognises the unique battles a "strong" black man faces in diaspora and tries her best to be a stabilising factor in his life and not the deliberately destabilising, belligerent, cantankerous and loud mouthed crop that populate Naija society in diaspora nowadays. They are just pure evil which is why I called them witches in one of our chats some time ago.
By witches, I meant the level of deliberate, destabilising wicked spite that a Nigerian woman in diaspora displays towards her man that is so evil as to qualify the Naija diaspora woman as practicing witchcraft implicitly or explicitly.
Most of the Nigerian Women in Diaspora are a Re-Incarnation of Judas.

If you meant the highlighted above without sarcasm, then you are very correct but what riles me is when I give my "honest" "personal" opinion on things and someone I was not talking to and will never meet tries to stampede me into silence by insulting me when I was NOT even talking to the person IN THE FIRST PLACE.
At times when people insult you unnecessarily out of the blues, as a mature man, you keep quiet since silence is the best answer for a fool BUT at times you have to return fire for fire especially when the other party struck the first blow.
Check my posts on Nairaland and you will see that on the rare occasions when I insult people, they had ALWAYS struck the first blow.

Loud mouthed Black woman. No wonder no man stays with you lot.
I normally don't exchange words with black women in diaspora as most of you lot are mentally ill but are not knowledgable enough to get treatment before it gets to the stage where you run nake.d on the streets but seeing that I was replying to someone else before you brought in your dirty motor mouth then I will reply you.
You are either a single mother or an ageing frustrated feminist tramp or a woman who "molests" a vibrato.r on a steady basis. If you ever have a man that stays with you, that man must either be foolish, silly, a gigolo who lives off women or a sissy as you have no manners as to know not to insult a man who was not talking to you in the first place.
Why would a decent man stay with you when you have messed up and damaged your vagina by fuckin.g yourself all day long with a vibrato.r leading to your smelly vagina due to vesicovaginal and rectovaginal fistula (Leaking feaces and urine into your vagina due to excessive drilling of your vagina with a vibrato.r). No wonder women on nairaland especially the ones in diaspora fight tooth and nail to derail any topic that mentions the illness called smelly vagina. Some people are aware of the self inflicted smelly secrets you harbour under your skirts or why do you think men constantly break up with you without giving you any valid reason ??.
If I had my way, the government should introduce what muslims have in their religion where husbands are allowed to flog disobedient wives as per the Quoran. Then loud mouthed vibrato.r fuckin.g tramps like you would not open your dirty mouth and insult just anyone because you are on the world wide web.
Mark my words, you will NEVER keep a man for long with your big mouth and if you do keep one, he will just be exploiting you. Just watch.
To all you vibrato.r addicted black feminists who want to be men and at the same time be the women, it is not just today that women didn’t know how to be women, it started a long time ago and it is part of a wider spriritual problem according to the bible verse below :-
Romans 1:26-27 (MSG)
Worse followed. Refusing to know God, they soon didn’t know how to be human either—women didn’t know how to be women, men didn’t know how to be men. Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men—all lust, no love. And then they paid for it, oh, how they paid for it—emptied of God and love, godless and loveless wretches.
|Family / Re: Bride Price; What Purpose? Who Benefits? by Ilekokonit: 7:06am On Jan 06|
Carribean women have no choice but to be loyal seeing that their men are not as soft as African men. Their men don't accept disloyalty or disrespect of any kind from them.
Carribean men are not hooked to the idea of one man one wife like most African men which is why our women take the piss with us 'cos they know that we value having all our kids from just one woman and we also value living with our wife and kids under the same roof hence our women take detrimental advantage of our need for a stable family life for our kids just like we were brought up.
Carribean men are also not as fond of religion as African men are and they don't see divorce as a biggie (that's if they get married in the first place). They've got too many side chicks to bother about settling down with just one woman. The amazing thing is that these multiple side chicks dare not cheat on them to their knowledge or all hell will break loose.
Carribean men have multiple baby mama's competing for their affection and company and I personally have seen a Jamaican side chick wait loyally for 5 years for her man (the father of her only child) to come out of prison after which she continued being his side chick and she sees herself as committed to the guy for life.
She waited 5 years for the guy to come out of jail. You will be hard pressed to see this kind of loyalty from 21st Century African women. Travel for just 2 months and on getting back the relationship will have changed for the worse.
Marriage is becoming more obsolete and more of a trap by the day. No wonder Carribean men avoid being trapped by marriage like a plague.

But imagining how she bit through the mans trouser and underwear before masticating "the main the main" is still a mystery to me. But then again poo happens and maybe the woman had watched too many wildlife programs or maybe she is a carnivore - a lion / hyena - that changed into a female sent by diabolical means to kill him.

The military top brass are against Buhari becoming President because it means certain court martial and jail for them for stealing the money meant to buy equipment for the soldiers to fight Boko haram.
They also know that Buhari being a General (and a honest one) will see through their smokescreen and expose the Military Generals who by their acts of commission or ommision are facilitating Boko Haram enabling them to slaughter innocent school children.
Every corrupt Nigerian official be that Politician or Military are dreading going to prison under Buhari who will expose their corrupt practices and deal with them.
They don't want the guy in charge and as the handwriting on the wall is indicating a landslide victory for the peoples general, they are distracting nigerians with this issue because they know that Nigerians worship paper qualifications whilst avoiding the substance in question which is the corruption of those currently in Power including Goodluck and the Military top brass.

The penny has dropped :- The fear of Buhari is the beginning of wisdom even for the Army top brass who are also patently as corrupt as Jonathan.
The bottom line is that every corrupt Politician (Jonathan included) plus the corrupt Army Generals are afraid of having to give account to Buhari hence their shouts of crucify him.
A case of give a dog a bad name to hang it.
I have also learnt a valuable lesson on how corruption has wrecked Nigeria and all its institutions.
Buhari was toppled by Babangida.
He was locked up for 3 years during which his house was ransacked by his captors and his personal effects including his original certificates were vandalized and/or taken away by the Army.
The man was refused time to go bury his mum who died while he was in captivity.
He is released after 3 years obviously bitter at being jailed and his house being ransacked by junior officers who took away his certificates along with some other personal effects.
Buhari a former C-I-C of the Nigerian Army most probably felt aggrieved at his treatment and as he did not need the certificates between 1985 and 2003 he let sleeping dogs lie.
In 2003, instead of going to the vandals who ransacked the sanctity of his house whilst he was in detention, he chose to swear an affidavit asserting that his original certs are with the Army which by all accounts seems to be the case.
PDP which has nothing good to offer Nigerians are focusing on this non-issue whilst our currency, economy and security goes to the wall. What a sick joke Goodluck Ebele Jonathan really is. Never again.
If the Army has nothing to hide and have not been bribed by Jonathan to do a dirty job on Buhari and if they are too crooked and ashamed to admit that they stole Buhari's Certs while he was in prison when they vandalized his house, then the bleeding Army should publish Buhari's certificate photocopies which the Army has admitted that they have in their possession for all officers and then we can all see it. Or are the
INEC is not innocent of being manipulated by Jonathan as well 'because come to think of it, how did PDP know that Buhari's Certs are not with INEC in the first place afterall Buhari's submissions to INEC are supposed to be confidential and covered by Data Protection Laws ??
With the way Jonathan and
The greedy Army top brass instead of dilligently planning winning strategies to quench Boko haram are approaching Buhari's certificates (which they have) with all the zeal they should have used to tackle Boko haram. If the Army had been this dilligent in fighting boko Haram, the terrorists would have been defeated long ago. but then again there are different types of terrorists and Jonathan, the Army and INEC and corrupt politicians of ALL parties are another class of terrorists.

Onaiyekan distanced the Catholic Church from Mbaka’s statement, stating that, “Mbaka will take responsibilities for his own actions. I do not believe in my mind that the way things are in Nigeria, any Catholic priest has the mandate to decide which of the political contestants should be voted for. What most of us will do is to tell people to vote according to their conscience and then, we tell the authorities to allow people to vote freely and fairly.
I agree with the highlighted but Nigeria is a place that even if a sitting president of ANY party "mistakenly" allows people to vote according to their conscience freely and fairly, election results will most likely be tampered with WITH IMPUNITY and nothing will happen as the FG has the might of the foolish rank and file police and army to shoot to kill any dissenting "commoner".
Fayose 9 days ago advocated using the Police and Army to win the Presidential Elections and he also stated that these elections are do or die and has told the SW PDP meeting blatantly to ignore the Governorship elections and focus squarely on winning the Presidential polls at all cost including using bribery of the Oba's and using students, the army and police to ensure Jonathan wins and once this happens they can then announce any result they want in the governorship elections. Mimiko agreed with him that the Oba's are hungry anyway and open to being bribed and Fayose further added that PDP can not afford to lose the Presidential elections and by implication lose power over the Army and Police which in Fayose's eyes are the perks and Power of PDP holding on to the Presidency.
Factor in Bakare's submission on 4/1/15 that 50 to 70% of some rural voters will not vote as they have no PVC and in some cases their PVC's have been hijacked. Also, add the mysterious reduction (millions reduced) in the no of eligible voters in Lagos and you'll see that the stage is set for the mother of all manipulation of election results.

Nigeria, according to the World Bank, has one of the lowest GDP per capita based on purchasing power parity (PPP) in the world at the 123rd position out of 185 countries
Worse still, the level of inequality in the distribution of wealth that shows that a select few have cornered the wealth of the nation is seen in a Gini coefficient of 43.8 which is one of the highest inequality indicators in the world according to World Bank statistics.
i.e 12 people control the money meant for 21 million Nigerians.
Also, the flow of money into the economy through politics within the first quarter of the year ahead of the elections could as well facilitate a demand-pull inflation. The so-called average Nigerian who has no place on the dinner table would bear the brunt. It is even doubtful that they can access the crumbs that fall from the master’s table.

True talk and the problem gets compounded when the initial love that birthed the marriage begins to fade away especially if you got married for the wrong reason(s) e.g due to societal pressure or if you didn't marry your soul mate in the first place.
If your wife or husband is not your soul mate, it WILL get to a stage that mutual hatred will replace the original love which was not really rooted in the first place because you rushed things without thrashing out compatibility issues or maybe one party played the other "419" love just to step up and get some benefits from the marriage without the hapless partner realising this.
A lot of men rush to get married to ensure they get "on demand" sex whilst a lot of women rush to get married because of societal pressure or because they got pregnant whilst courting. These reasons are NOT cogent enough to warrant getting married but a lot of people make the same mistakes over and over again as has been happening for donkey years.
I believe that HONEST, OPEN and healthy arguments during courtship will reduce the divorce rate in society because such arguments will bring out the other persons real character, likes and dislikes and each party will then be able to make an informed decision as to whether they want to spend the rest of their lives with a partner whose basic character they now to an extent understand as revealed from their healthy unsupressed arguments. But will today’s deceptive, pretentious character traits in people allow them to show the other party their real character in a healthy argument?? There is just too much deceit, scamming and outright PRE-MEDITATED DECEIT in today’s relationships that even dating is like putting a gun to your head because 9 times out of 10, you will be deceived / scammed by 21st Century partners.
Some people even resort to NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) mind games to try to control their partners ?
Regarding 2 people sleeping on the same bed for 352 days a year, its true that todays people need their space and the advent of smart phones and internet on the go, a lot of nonsensical TV programmes and irrelevant time wasting internet sites have all conspired to make us so individualistic and selfish that we NO LONGER genuinely love ourselves in the true sense of it and on top of this, the stress in making a living in a Global Recession that remains relentless 7 years on means that everyone just wants to be left alone after a hard days slug and sleeping on the same bed with someone who has probably began to irritate you or eat into your chill out time further stresses 21st century marriages.
I believe that the glue / cement that held our parents marriages together is no longer sold in ANY market. Marriage is becoming more of a trap nowadays.
On another tangent, I marvel when I read threads like "will you date a broke man” And I wonder why some people have eyes but cannot see and have ears and cannot hear. Or is it a function of immaturity ? Like I mentioned above, this 7 year Global Recession is unrelenting and at its inception in 2008 it was adjudged to be worse than the Great Depression of the 1930's (in my opinion the current one is not even a recession but a Depression which is a worse situation compounded with negative equity and a credit crunch). If the likes of Woolworths and Lehman Brothers that have been around for more than 100 years can go under because their creditors pulled the plug. If Ireland and a few other countries can humbly accept economic bailouts to survive. If China is now a major lender to America then you will see that the WHOLE world is living in an UNCERTAIN and UNCHARTED FINANCIAL ERA with nobody being able to guarantee their financial future.
Now with millions of men and women losing their jobs globally (2.5 million unemployed in the UK alone), why would some people still use money or the lack of it as a factor in making the most important decision in their lives - the choice of a life partner
That's why I believe that someone can be highly literate but still be a current affairs / financial illiterate. To compound this Achilles heel (which to me is a major character defect) is the fact that Black people especially Africans (Nigerians categorically) worship money hence everything including their relationships are "greedily" scrutinized through the grubby prism of money hence their marriages don't stand the test of time.
But they make the same mistake OVER and OVER again forgetting that money comes and goes and NOBODY can lock money inside a room because "riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Proverbs 23:5"
Money is needed in todays world but if one overtly or covertly bases matters of the heart principally on money then that relationship WILL fail as its foundation was faulty to start with. He who has ears, let him hear.

In most 21st Century marriages, love dies a gradual death the minute the kids start coming possibly because the familiarity actually starts breeding contempt or tiredness from the amount of work involved in raising a young family or because you grow apart due to lack of open communication or boredom and resignation or fear of living with someone you are no longer on fire for and over time the love just depreciates due to bad treatment of one party by the other and the person who should normally be your best friend now becomes comparable to your worst enemy. Or how do you explain the epidemic proportions of divorce in 21st century marriages.
It is now no longer till death do us part and no one mates for life anymore at least not on the long run and it will get worse with the freedom the internet age brings to promiscuity and instant gratification at the blink of an eye couple with the sheer greed amongst todays humans. Animals (e.g pigeons and some other birds) on the other hand are now better than humans at mating for life.
The evidence of marriage becoming more obsolete by the day and going towards extinction is clear for all to see.
Marriage, fools rush in where angels fear to thread. No wonder the Bible says to abstain from marriage if you can hold your self.
Most people pre-marriage don't realise that the wedding day is a 100 metre dash whilst the marriage proper is a marathon than you can only successfully run if you patiently wait for and marry your soulmate.
