Good evening everyone, thank God for life coz that alone is indeed a great blessing.

I will be brief with my post here i promise smiley
Indeed i have seen life at its worst....

After mourning my husband i decided to leave my city Kaduna to begin a new life with my kids,yeah a boy and a girl.

I started from the scratch here in Abuja, from lesson that paid not upto #6000 to a school that pays #20,000 and presently am working in a school that pays not less than #50,000 all these boils down to my hardwork and perseverance and above all God.

Alright this the main ishhh, i met this single, understanding and loving guy that have already paid for my dowry and wedding is coming up November this year

Now my fear..... We love each other, he loves my kids so dearly we have been together for almost 2 years now that's why he decided to move the relationship further.

Ohh yes, i said my fear, his currently a job hunter ? cry

we thought things would get better before the wedding but Nigeria got no chill sincerely so now i have to leave my job and follow him to his city where he base so as to help him with his little business hoping things would get better.

So now my question, Am i doing the right thing by moving to his city or i should continue with my job and wait till he gets a better job??

Adding that his in his mid 30's and willing to settle down.

Please my people advice me. Or if you can help him pass through this stage of life, blessings will follow you.....

He is a graduate and lives in Zaria. God bless you all.

Between sorry for any blunders or typo error, am just seeing double cry

Ha! I'm a man o! But marrying a jobless guy? Hmmm
Does he have any handwork or skill he uses to pay his bills?

Let me give you a candid advice as a married man:
1. Maintain your teaching job. You are a mother with two lovely kids. Don't let those children suffer for your careless mistake.

2. Talk to him to move to Abuja with you. You are already settled with a job and stable so he too needs to support you by joining you to start looking for job opportunities at Abuja.

3. If he insists in staying in his comfort zone (Zaria) without making effort to get a job, please leave him and go back to Abuja and continue your job.

4. A man cannot be talking of marriage when he does not have a stable income. I was a teacher earning 30k in the east when I met my wife in Lagos. My wife was earning twice my salary. I had move down to Lagos because we wanted to get married. We postponed our wedding by 3 months until I got another job that was paying 45k. That was 8 years ago. No matter how little the salary is, let your man have something doing.

My one piece advice.
Apply these points and you'll be fine.
God's grace.

Becareful, that guy is after what he can get from you.
I'm sure you'll have been sorting him out in little things he now feels comfortable that your money can sustain you all therefore no need to make any efforts to stand on his own before going into marriage.

The whole thing might not be clear to you now until you have entered. Remember you already have two children that are your responsibility.

A 35yr Old man with no tangible source of income rushing into marriage with a single mother has ulterior motives. Trust me. Not with the kind of lazy men we have around these days.

Re: Wedding Preparations Without A Job!! by Richy4(m): 10:35am On Aug 25, 2022
Recipe for a disaster...
So after the marriage, one of the kids falls ill and the doctors says 160K or no attention would be given to the kid in the hospital, Considering the fact he has no source of income, what will you guys do?..

This is not all about you guys, put others around u into consideration while making some decisions...
I believe u love each other but will that be enough to sustain the relationship? Love does not put food on the table, love does not pay the bills.. Trust me you won't be talking about love when your kids would be sent out of school for not paying their school fees.. why not wait a little bit?

I believe he will like to have his own kids from you?Have you guys even spoken about how many more you can have considering the fact that U got some from your previous relationship?

Why do you want to upheave your children for so much uncertainty?
How will you feed them in Zaria?
Even some men with good source of income don't want to look after another man's child, talkmore of a man who is still struggling to find his feet and even feed himself alone.
You want to add 3 more mouths to his situation?
What help do you want to give his business that he's not giving it already?
It's a different thing if the business really needs more hands because it's growing fast, but does he really need more hands for now?

Your fear is not about his employment status. If it is, you won't let him close or allow him pay. It is just cold feet and fear of acceptance and moving on. As a single mom, life is always easier. You can LovePeddler around to meet your daily need but after marriage, you won't be comfortable doing that so your mind won't let you have that discomfort. No advice for a single mother is worth it because they will always have cold feet and unsatisfied with marriage, nagging and quarreling with their spouse and soon return to single motherhood. It is not a curse. It is how life has programed them to be.

But a single mother who deliberately and decisively chose to marry doesn't look back. She puts her best to make sure her man is comfortable with having her with her status as a single mother. She is always supportive and want her man to succeed. so she minimizes frivolities while maintaining a decent life. She doesn't use crocodile tears to bargain like this one here.

You can or you may start by saying laila ilanla... You can give gala to your Allah, maybe he would tell you what to do...?

My simple opinion is this.

In whatever you do consider the welfare of your kids. Now you have left your source of livelihood to follow a man who also has no appreciable source of income or livelihood..
How do you cater for your kids?

Don't consider yourself and feelings only. This love thing requires proper calculation and thinking otherwise it may go sour and even become bitter or tasteless. Frustration sets in.

Go back to your job for the sake of the kids.
You can still carry on with your love for him.
Paying your dowry doesn't mean anything. You are not yet indebted to ride or die with him. Worst case, dowry can be returned..

All I'm saying is that you should look well before you leap. Make sure that the other side you will land is at least safe for you to land. Otherwise, you will injure yourself and kids... All your decisions, good or bad, will affect them.

Make your late husband proud of your decisions and the care of the kids...
