Growing up, one man usually comes to our house.
Almost every evening this man will come, whether my father was around or not. Sometimes he comes when everyone is out. He would sit at our veranda and wait for us to come back.
Most of the times he comes straight to our house from his office and will stay till late into the night .
This man was a regular visitor.
It got to a point where he became too familiar that when he comes we forget to greet him.
It was that bad.
At a point, his presence became irritating. I wouldn’t watch what I wanted to because it might come off as being rude trying to change the channel when he’s staring at the television.
Even when there was no power supply, he didn’t mind the heat, he would always fall asleep on the couch, and wake up to leave whenever he likes.
This happened almost everyday. I kept wondering why a married man, with kids will not be staying in his own house.
One day, out of curiosity I asked my mom why the man was always coming to our houses.
That was when it dawned on me.
“Favour is deceitful, beauty is vain, wealth is not steady, sex is not what you think, will bore you one day. Marry someone who will always give you PEACE at home. someone you can’t wait to see everyday…”
That was when I understood why that man kept coming to our house. He was running away to avoid the troubles of his wife.
He preferred coming to our house after work than going home to his wife.
This is the worst marriage anyone can ever have. When you start running away from your own home, then you are in for a huge thing.
Please marry right. Marry someone who will do you good and not evil all the days of your life. Someone who opens his /her mouth with wisdom and has kindness in her tongue.
Someone whose love is undying.
The great sex, the beauty, the money and whatever you think you are getting now, might fail but the right spouse stands the test of time.
Your fear of marrying late is less than the troubles that comes with marrying the wrong person.
Please give your spouse peace.
