This was the caption for last weeks edition of wives lives, an opinion poll type weekly write up in the SUN. I always enjoy reading it as they ask really funny questions and get even funnier answers.
When I saw the caption I though most of the women would say they would end the relationship immediately, but boy was I wrong.Out of 9 women 6 said they would go ahead with the wedding, 1 said she would ask for a postponement so may agree to continue, while 2 categorically said they would not go ahead with the wedding.
Here are some of the excerpts
Timilehin ” I will still marry him because we have prepared so much for the wedding ……but I will punish him for some months after the wedding..I will later forgive him and we will live our lives peacefully”
Gloria “..the wedding will still hold because my man holds a special place in my heart. I will find out what attracted him to her ….I will forgive him. as for my bridesmaid I will replace her immediately because I am sure she seduced my husband”
Nkechi ” I can’t go on with such a wedding because for him to sleep with my chief bridesmaid he can definitely sleep with my sister. He will hurt me more if I marry him”
Helen ” I will still marry him… but he will suffer for his action my attitude towards him will change. If I cancel the wedding my husband will find another woman to marry and people will think i have a curse on my head. To avoid gossip i will carry on with the wedding…”
Tonia ” that wedding will hold. Now that I know the kind of man I am married to I will have to be vigilant. I will marry him to avoid sham and embarrassment…”
Bimpe ” of course I will still marry him, I cant be stupid to quit the joyous day ( how about quitting a miserable life?) all because he slept with my chief brides maid. I will still love him. I won’t even discuss the matter with him. As for her I will leave her to her conscience she will continue to be my bridesmaid.
Rita ” men are scarce.I may postpone it but all i need is a sincere apology from the man. The bridesmaid has eaten the food meant for me alone so she must go far from me”
Mary ” I will cancel the wedding no matter how long we have prepared. For him to sleep with her who knows who else he has slept with? he is a womaniser…I will leave my area to settle down somewhere else”
Tope ” hmmm I will stop the marriage no matter what. I am sure people will advise me to continue but they won’t live with me after and witness him do worse. If the pressure on me is too much I will ask for the wedding to be postponed so I can think about it.”
What would u do?
