Taking another wife is not a solution.... The solution to this is YOU.
You didn't do your survey too well before marriage and well, you are now into it and there is no way out of it. My advice for you is this... Let it stick to your head henceforth that you are the breadwinner of your immediate family and any other business you create reports to you directly and not your wife. More so, do not have a joint account with her and let her know that her business MUST bring food to the table (as that is the minimal expected from a wife).
If symptoms persists, kindly seek a spiritual father.

babyface333: Obasanjo ran to kenya were GEJ was invited for their independence to meet our president. He is utterly shocked that GEJ didnt even mention anything or the contents of the letter to him there. I guess OBJ was thinking GEJ would begin to ask him, caution or even start to curry favour from him. Obasanjo is trying to use such a weighty letter to whip GEJ in line so as to play his godfather role again and reckon to relevance. He is still shocked that GEJ called his bluff in kenya, just had dinner with him and everyone left.
I hate him for too many things....
Drinking to stupor everytime in Abuja to the extent that they have to shut down power in a whole estate just to take him out... even passes out in his minister's house till the next day...

Hong Kong (CNN) -- Growing levels of conflict, terrorism, and the toppling of regimes in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as political violence in East Africa, are driving a rise in political instability worldwide, according to research by UK risk analysis firm, Maplecroft released on Thursday.
Since 2010, one in ten of the countries surveyed have experienced a significant increase in the level of short-term political risk.
These risks include governments asserting control over natural resources, regimes being ousted by popular uprisings and the expropriation of foreign investors' assets.
The findings form part of the latest Maplecroft Political Risk Atlas, which uses 52 indicators to help companies monitor political issues affecting the business environment in 197 countries.

Since 2010, Syria has deteriorated the most. It now ranks second compared with a 44th place ranking in 2010. Somalia topped the rankings.
Afghanistan, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo also ranked in the top five.
Egypt has been downgraded to "extreme risk" for the first time as a result of violence following the ousting of former President Mohamed Morsy and an increase in terrorist attacks in the Sinai Peninsula, the report said.
Maplecroft warned that Syria, Egypt and Libya are "now so bad" that they will be "mired in exceptionally high levels of dynamic political risk for years to come."
A fall in political violence in the Philippines, India and Uganda has contributed to these countries experiencing the biggest reduction in short-term political risk over the past four years.
Improvements in the level of governance has also helped to lower risk levels in Malaysia and Israel in the same period.
The report said there is a higher chance for social unrest to exacerbate political instability in Bangladesh, Belarus, China, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam.
"This is due to the erosion of democratic freedoms, increasing crackdowns on political position and the brutality by security forces towards protesters, compounded by rising food prices and worsening working conditions," Maplecroft said in a statement.
Another concern for foreign investors is that there has been a major increase in oppression by governments worldwide.
"This erosion of political freedoms is central to driving the wider risk of unrest and instability in the medium- to long term," said Charlotte Ingham, senior political risk analyst at Maplecroft.
In the short term, foreign investors face a heightened risk of becoming complicit with the actions of these oppressive regimes, which poses a threat to a company's reputation, the think tank said.
Instability increases as the gap grows between political freedoms and social gains, such as education and computer literacy among young people.
In 2010, prior to the the Arab Spring, Libya, Tunisia, Iran, Syria and Egypt were among the countries with the biggest divide between political freedoms and social gains.
Maplecroft predicts that the growing imbalance between social gains and political freedoms in Bahrain, Azerbaijan and South Africa will heighten the risk of instability in those countries in 2014 and beyond.
Although China is categorized as "extreme risk" in Maplecroft's ranking of oppressive regimes, the speed of the country's governance reforms is likely to be sufficient to limit the chances of widespread social unrest that could lead to a "jasmine" revolution, according to the think tank.
But China's increased scrutiny of foreign business practices has created compliance challenges for companies operating there, the report added.
Maplecroft cautioned that Vietnam's crackdown on social media and freedom of speech amid growing opposition may undermine the stability of the government in the long term.
Poland has experienced a significant increase in the level of political freedoms over the past four years, according to Maplecroft, and now displays a "near perfect balance" between the level of political freedoms and social gains, which reduces the likelihood of protests and disputes over labor conditions.
East African countries saw the biggest increase in the risk of political violence, including terrorism, poor governance, and regimes vulnerable to popular uprisings. Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan scored in the "extreme risk" category, while Kenya and Ethiopia are "high risk." Eritrea, Tanzania and Mozambique also saw a change in their risk category.
Three years after the Arab Spring, more than 60% of countries in the Middle East and North Africa region have seen a significant rise in political violence, demonstrating the long-term political risks associated with forced regime change, the report said.
In the West, the impact of the global financial crisis continues to be seen in high levels of unemployment and underemployment.
This, combined with austerity measures, has contributed to growing inequality and stalling or declining living standards, according to Maplecroft.
Political landscapes both in Europe and the United States have become increasingly fragmented and polarized as populist parties flourished in response to growing voter dissatisfaction with established political parties over these issues.

Now you are being Radical here...
Do you think Bible is a dictionary? It was not written in English mind you... That was why Islam still prefers to read the Holy Quran in Arabic. The bible was originally written in Greek and the word translated to fornication means pornea as it means intimate Sins, which includes Idolatry, Adultery, Inbreeding and all...
You need to know the meaning to the words you read in the bible... The real context is Self Control..
1 Corinthians 7:2: "Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."
.... it reads to avoid not to commit. Cos if you are not married, you will tend to sex this, that and drop and that is intimate lust, which is a sin. So it advises that to avoid it, get married so you will know a covenant is bounding.
Jude 1:7: "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."
...it also read going after strange flesh... like visiting harlots... that is fornication mind you.
1 Corinthians 5:1: "It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife."
...that proves another meaning of the word... having one's father's wife.
Please note that the pastors use it for unmarried reasons today so as to exercise self control, which is a good thing.

POPE II: dude where and when Mary died ? How ? Who and what killed her ? Lmao funny people
Now, I rest my case.
After the Ascension of Jesus
In Acts 1:26, especially v. 14, Mary is the only one to be mentioned by name other than the eleven apostles, who abode in the upper room, when they returned from mount Olivet. (It is not stated where the later gathering of about one hundred and twenty disciples was located, when they elected Matthias to fill the office of Judas Iscariot who perished.) Some speculate that the "elect lady" mentioned in 2 John 1:1 may be Mary. From this time, she disappears from the biblical accounts, although it is held by Catholics that she is again portrayed as the heavenly woman of Revelation.[Rev 12:1]
Her death is not recorded in the scripture. However, Catholic and Orthodox tradition and doctrine have her assumed (taken bodily) into Heaven. Belief in the corporeal assumption of Mary is universal to Catholicism, in both Eastern and Western Catholic Churches, as well as the Eastern Orthodox Church, Coptic Churches, and parts of the Anglican Communion and Continuing Anglican Churches.
Hyppolitus of Thebes claims that Mary lived for 11 years after the death of her Son, dying in 41 AD.
Dormition: commemorates Mary's "falling asleep" or natural death shortly before her Assumption.
Assumption: the doctrine which states that Mary was taken bodily into Heaven either at, or before, her death.
While the Roman Catholic Church has established the dogma of the Assumption, namely that Mary went directly to Heaven without a usual physical death, the Eastern Orthodox Church believes in the Dormition, i.e., that she fell asleep, surrounded by the Apostles.

If that be the case, I will either take custody of the child and cater for it using my Mum or a family member as a gateway or she takes custody and take care of the child.
|Family / Re: Getting Pregnant Before Marriage by ledafaze(m): 9:04am On Dec 10|
kulyie: anyway the summary of the matter is to each their own.
This is a tough one... here I rest my case... hahahahaha
But to be sincere, I would have checked every reasons before going into bed with her... I can say I am spiritual and I would have prayed about it and gotten a clear GREEN before making a headway. And really, it depends on her listening skills... some girls can have bad characters hidden but also have listening skills thereby allowing you to change the bad character in them... that is a perfect one... but the ones without the listening skill is a no go area. If she's got no listening skills, got hidden characters that I got to know after intimacy, we will sit down and talk about it... letting her know the risks involved and also not having the intimacy thing with her... and if she's still adamant, we come to a resolution...
