How Long Can A Woman Wait For A Man She Loves?

recently i met a lady on facebook and we began to develop a friendship, then i asked her her age and she said 39 - so i asked her why she hasn't been married and she claimed she was dating a man in 9ja and they got married and the man went to America and she waited for 9 years for the man to come back and take her but the man never came back and eventually she learnt that the man has gotten married in the US. She said they had been warning her since year five that gthe man was married in the US and she did not listen and waited another four years for him - the whole thing sounded like a rooster and bull story to me - can a woman wait for 9 years for a man when they have no kids together? - how long would a woman wait for her love?

I think his case might be because he doesn't have his papers to travel back home. So, it could be many things sha.

I know a young woman who waited for her man for 15 years and they had a beautiful wedding in Lagos last April.

The question is; is the person worth waiting for?

Oprah Winfrey was waiting for someone until she got tired and decided to remain single.

a person regardless of gender can wait any lenght of time for the one they love, min you love. most people here seem to confuse lust, like and love. you can wait a while for a like and not at all for a love. if you are asking this question then obviously you have never truely been in love

It all depends on the love/bond that exists between us and his attitude for the duration he is away. But in all, I think all relationships should be given one year maximum to have direction after which everyone goes their way.

If I am married to him before he leaves, then there should be arrangements made as regarding the man performing his marital duties and if he fails to meet up within 2 years then its time to go. A lady of over 23 waiting endlessly for a guy she isnt married to is silly while a woman of over 35 waiting for 9 years for her husband to return needs to sit down and have a rethink.

For me, one year max to give the relationship a direction and 2 years max to work out how husband and wife can be together.

Make two of us, but still i wont deny the possibility of having a squeeze on the side until you decide to come back home. Yes I said it.
