The bolded is the problem we women always have.
What's that supposed to mean?
Does anyone deserve special respect because they are married?
It's comments like this that make young single women to feel like they are deficient and not worthy of respect because they are single.
It's what's also makes married ladies to look down on single ones as if having a man suddenly made them better and more respect worthy than a single person

You'll be addressed respectfully if you deserve it. It shouldn't have anything to do with your marital status.
Not judging you though.

That said,just wear what makes you comfortable. As long as you and your husband are cool with it,it's ok.
One shouldn't be going around town seeking to be indentified as married like it's a badge of honor.
It's your privacy. It's no one's business.

@OP:

Are you referring to random people or previous acquaintances?

If random, what kind of discussions led to such?

There is no special way a married woman carries herself to be 'respected'. People will treat you how you place yourself to be treated.

If you are referring to dressing, I know some grannies that will beat you to it Hair on point, nails etc.(not indecency o!). There are some that its their kids that will make you know they are married. I know some that are petite, not using rings, have 2 kids in a 8+ marriage and look like a university undergrad cheesy

Live your life to suit yourself cheesy

I'm guessing you were expected to throw out all your jeans and stilettoes, and swap it for natives and slippers instead? undecided

Yea..that's me.Not the granny part o.I ve never looked married.Not like I dress indecently. It all depends on your carriage. For the fact one is married doesn't mean you must look like some one from a 1960 movie.
Re: dalu by kika23(f): 5:34pm On Sep 17, 2014
I don't think there's a particular look for married women. Personally, I love the funky looking type. Those who take good care of themselves despite the fact that they are married and they don't have to look older than their real age all because they are married and out of the market. This doesn't mean they should be indecent though.. It has to be moderate, funky in a decent way... Not over the top.

Well, different strokes for different folks.. I'd like to always look attractive to my husband, and look like my children's elder sister. smiley

Re: dalu by snazzylove: 7:25pm On Sep 17, 2014
Yeah I think its normal for people(especially the older generation) and some of the younger generation to ask that question. I used to think that way too, that was years back. Reason is that these people believe that a married woman should:

1) Have Fat arms (you know the type they call 'christian mother') grin

2) Have Flabby protruded tommy cheesy. A mark to inform other women (and men) that you have dozen(s) of kids at home grin

3) Have big rounded bottom (not the sexy type oo). The ones that have seen better dayz that even without movement they are dancing skelewu on their own grin

4) Have bosoms that are always head down in worship to the gods cheesy

5) Have the xtra body weight to show that hubby is really taking good care of her. (One of the ways to know a good and caring husband those days) shocked

6) To crown it all should always be on two wrappers and blouse, iro and buba, veils etc. Even when they want to wear casuals it must be a maxi gown, maxi skirt and loose top, thread hair, didi , jerry curl or perming grin.

So my dear count yourself lucky to be asked that question. So many ladies will do anything to get such question from people.
If people start to refer to you as madam even without seeing the ring, know its time to hit the gym and change your wardrobe.

Keep fit and keep looking chicky. It pays cool

Most ignoramus have that believe that if you are married , you should be fat, protruding stomach, or let's say on the big side while you maintain a " modest clothing ".

I have seen some singles that fit that description and the way they quarrel with anyone that dares call them madam or give them too much respect.

Size matters a lot to Nigerian s. Once you are on the big side, more respect for you. This exclude when you enter a public transport cheesy.

Ok @ topic, most times it depends on ur physique. If you have a slim and/or petite figure, there is a larger percentage u'l get such advances...so if I were you, I'l just go ahead and take those talks as compliments.

Re: dalu by allycat: 4:03am On Sep 18, 2014
Just put on weight, look constantly harassed and frown all the time. Nobody will need to be told you are a stressed married woman. I have been married for almost 15 years and it was just about a year ago I noticed that people were suddenly calling me madam and almost kneeling down whenever they see me. I took a good look at myself in the mirror and realized I had really added a lot of weight, so my next birthday gift to myself and my hubby is to loose weight and look good. He hasn't complained yet but when a guy agrees with you quick quick that you are rejoining the gym, you use your tongue and count your teeth.

role models to who? The singles or everybody? But IMO, i don't think you need marriage to be people's role model.

[quote
author=IyawoToBe]What does it mean when people say " Are you married?"
"You don't look married". Though this question i constantly get from
people does not mean anything to me, I will like to know what a married
woman looks like.

Is it the way i dress? I got married some months ago and I still wear my
jeans and top. Occasionally wear native and still wear my stilettos wink.
I bassically still wear some of the clothes i wore while single. Not
that they are revealing and slutty o, lol. But does that make me come
across like an unmarried person.

Pls I will like to gauge responses from married women. Soon after
getting married, how did you make that subtle switch from being
addressed as a single lady to being addressed respectfully as a married
woman. How did you groom yourself to make people address you
accordingly? wink[/quote]rock your ring,behave more mature and always be descent in your looks shikina..
