34 Shares

Happy Valentines Day everyone! This is one celebration I am not really big on but I appreciate its focus on showing love to not just couples but all and sundry. One person who talks a lot about love amongst couples is Pastor Tinu Asegieme who happens to be one my favourite people.

2 Shares

In this month of February, the emphasis is on romantic love – but one form of love that is often overlooked is “Phileo”, brotherly love. This is the kind of love that is common amongst families; kith and kin.

Janine Udogu is a Swiss national married to a Nigerian man. While inter-racial marriages are not new what struck me about Janine is her love for her husband’s culture and how she has integrated so seamlessly.

  This month is dedicated to food and relationships and one aspect of relationships that has caused a lot of pain is infidelity even in marriage! Marriage is an Institution where Mutual Fidelity is preached and expected. However the phrase “forsaking all others” has been ignored by many and infidelity has wrecked many marriages. Despite the high toll it takes on marriages many men (and women) still indulge in extra-marital affairs.  In fact in this part of the world some women are convinced that most if not all men cheat at some point in their relationships. It isn’t too clear why […]
