Nobody wants to be alone, thats human- so most women want to get married at some point in their lives. The problem of seeming desperation in Nija is societal. Ladies that are not married are made to feel inadequate as if something is wrong with them. Even in Churches prayers are made constantly about single girls as if they have some disease or they are possesed. To escape being labelled loose, cursed or enduring snide remarks all the time, some ladies have rushed in just so people dont point fingers at them. At least they become MRS and society suddenly seems to respect them. It doesnt matter if in 5 years time they hardly talk to their husband and live as flat mates- Nija society will always give the more respect

Marriage growing up was always a dream for me. My parents are still married and had an OK marriage, never any cheating that i know of. I was raised to value marriage and prepare for it.

I am not Nigerian I am American therefore my views and thoughts are westernized.

Charles thanks for your kind words.

for some it is their life, for others it is their worst nightmare.

and not every girl grows up dreaming of their wedding day or how to charm the prince. some gurls actually had more important things they were thinking.

Are we talking about your average woman of nowadays in general or specifically your average Nigerian woman, there are differences between them when it comes to the importance of marriage, especially considering the current values of certain cultures and societies of nowadays

Yes girl dream of their wedding from grade school.

Why would they not dream of their big day when mom and dad are married? Is it not logical for children to want to emulate their parents?

The average nigerian girl wants to settle down in her husband's house b4 the age of 25. I was also told that some families in different parts of the country actually see a girl as ready and ripe for marriage once they've attained a certain age and education level. this time 90% of the time comes after the girl has finished University and NYSC. At least that is wat i've heard and witnesses anyway.
