Marriage Proposal: Just How Creative Can You Be?

Image
Love is such a beautiful thing! Yeah we know that. But it is hot when the people involved act ‘crazy’; do the unusual; go extra miles to prove their love.
Ok so, you, a guy, have found the girl that makes your world spin. And then you go: ‘I’d love her to be the mother of my kids’; ‘I’d love to spend forever with her’; ‘She means the world to me’; ‘She’s my heartbeat’; ‘I just can’t imagine life without her’; ‘Teminikan’; ‘oloomi’; ‘sweetie mi’; ‘ewa mi’; ‘ife mi’; ‘onyekemu-o’...blah blah blah...

And you’re like, I’ll propose to her on her birthday; in front her family members or yours; I’ll take her to this cosy restaurant, liaise with the chef and ask her to bake this beautiful cake with an engagement ring inserted in the cake; I’ll take her on a boat cruise and ask her to marry me otherwise I’ll push her into the ocean (lol...please don’t try that guys); and so we can go on and on and on. But just how creative are you when it comes to Marriage Proposal?
A Big Deal? Yes Well, some might…

Secondary School Lovers Marry Nearly 50 Years after Breakup

“Many waters cannot extinguish love, and rivers will never wash it away. If a man exchanged all his family's wealth for love, people would utterly despise him...” Songs of Solomon 8:7
They say true love stands the test of time. And for Emilie Danielson, 70, and Terry Britton, 69, that has certainly proven true.
On Nov. 11, 52 years after they originally met as college freshmen attending Chapman University in Orange, Calif., the blushing bride and her now very grateful groom finally had the opportunity to say their "I do's" to one another.
The couple first began dating in 1960 and admittedly fell fast and hard for each other. "We would walk down to this tiny little church down the road and make out like crazy in the back of the pew," Danielson told ABCNews.com.
I Lost My Love But over the years, although the passion was strong between them, they somehow lost touch and can't even explain today how or why it happened.
"We do not know how we lost touch. That…

A Remarkable Love Letter

Image
"Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also"
It’s been a while, yeah I know. But I’m back now. And I’d like to appease you with this love letter. Yes, it’s a beautiful love letter from me to you.
Many of us have received love letters – especially when we were just starting out on relationships and when technology hasn’t so advanced. We look forward to those words that will make us smile or make our head swoon; words that’ll assure us that we are indeed loved. Hmmm. I could remember the first love letter I received (lol); that’s a story for another day.
This is a letter from a father to a son who had just fallen in love. It has a lot of keynotes, and lots of advice on love. I believe you’ll find something useful in it....
"If you love someone—there is no possible harm in saying so..."

Till Looks Do Us Part

Image
I am sure some of us have seen this picture. It was, at a time, circulated on the internet - blogs, social networks, even as DP on BBM (BlackBerry Messenger). I recently got it off a friend on BB and used it as my DP - display picture (that explains its fuzziness); and bang did it generate lots of comments! I received loads of 'pings' (BBM chat buzzes), with different views on the picture. It was actually supposed to be fun - for laughs actually - but a lot of my contacts saw a big deal in it. They took it so serious like it was a real union, whereas, I think it's just a photoshop or photo magic, if you will.

Many of my contacts had a lot to say. Some rejected the union out-rightly; some said it was jazz - diabolical; some concluded it wasn't possible; a doctor friend even went as far as looking at the odds of the union from the genetics point of view - he argued that the children that will come forth from the union will suffer the consequence, especially if the guy'…

20 Marital ‘Magic-Wands’ My Friend Shared with Me

“Love itself is invisible, but wherever it dwells it produces such effects that its presence soon becomes known. It makes people gentle, kindly, thoughtful, unselfish, and fills them with new desires to do good, and to serve and bless others. And wherever Christ is, love is, in all its pervasive, transforming influence ” ~ the Vine
I have many friends. I really do. They are so many that I find it difficult to constantly stay in touch with them. Some I don’t even contact for weeks, even months, yet they still find ‘a place for me in their hearts’. I’m sure they’re reading this and they’ll understand...*wink*.
And so, one of my numerous dear friends sent me series of relationship/marital advice (edited) that I think are worth sharing on my blog. (Did I mention he sent them via SMS? Yes, he did!). Peodavies as he is often called, or Olutayo Irantiola if you will, is married and has these for the married (as well as the singles). I find them exhilarating, and I believe they’ll inspire you t…

Should I Take Him Back?

Image
I saw this on someone’s Facebook wall, and couldn’t resist sharing. Please read on and advice...

My hubby came home one night calmed and happy, I was surprised but happy. He's been out of control for sometime now, actually since I lost my dad two years ago. He became the CEO since my dad died, it was on the will for my husband to become the CEO and my baby brother the Managing director.
I've done everything in my power to make things right but whatever I do is not good enough. This wasn't the same Tayo that I married. My parents were rich but their two children were trained well. I was working in my dad's company until I had my second child. My dad told me to stay at home and take care of the kids because I refused to get a maid and my grandma that was helping passed away at the time.(I lost my mom five years ago too) I enjoyed every minute of being a wife and a mom until I lost my dad.
My husband came in that fateful day about three months ago, looked at me and said &quo…
