Ur not wrong, Ur just not thinking smart and maybe that's cos you are not ready for the whole marriage thing.

What kind of a relationship did/do Ur folks have? Was Ur mum more happy than the average wife in her days? Was Ur dad more of a man than the men of his time? Maybe U should run this by them if they are anything U consider as marital role models.

U want to do that 'live and work in Lagos while Ur Husband is living and working in Sokoto' thing too? In Ur own case sef Ur fiance Sokoto cross water and no be pond or stream.

How does a new couple sustain a relationship in absence of themselves? How do U bond? Even if U rich pass those Arabs U'd still need the energy to travel to and fro very regularly to make time for bonding. Wetin U wan dey bond with sef, ring and title abi person wey be the reason behind the ring and the title.

Anyway, me I don't understand the modern world as much especially when it comes to love and marriage. I'm still traditional at heart.

Anyway (Part II), how does Ur man feel about Ur disposition and preferences? U want him to move to Naija for U?

resentment, and you will lose. Love is not a religion, so always use your brain.

It seems that you are just afraid of relocation. Hmmm. I don't know what to say; I also hate relocation.

You have to go to him my dear, thats if you love him. One of the sacrifices of love. It'll pay you later, though you might not love it now. Believe me.

i dont think u need to be apprehensive cos its a matter of his friends becoming your friend and you'll gain more friends cos u wont loose touch with those in Naija. If you can even join a class or club the better.

but i think you'll compromise before he does.

i wont say our lifes aspirations arent in sync.we pretty much want the same things out of life.its just the location that kinda spooks me out.iv got no friends no immediate family and stuff so it just makes me think il be like a fish out of water.i know he plans to come home in the fiture as i know he has alot of business ideas he always wants to implement back home.i guess my main problem is the drastic change.

Baby girl, you dont have much of a choice in this issue. Its either you decide to relocate or you dont go into the marriage at all.

I can understand where you are coming from, but I don't know what kind of marriage that you should expect if you are not living together, let alone in separate countries.
