After the Promise Ring - What Next?

Posted in: ,

This is the second episode of the short film, The Promise, which we discussed here. I don't want to spoil it, but I will say that I preferred the first to this one.

Couple Love - Beyonce and JayZ

Posted in: ,

Beyonce and Jayz have been married five years now, and were dating for a while before then. They have a one-year old daughter, and though there are rumors that Beyonce is pregnant for her second, the couple have not confirmed it. I love that they still know how to take time to themselves and have fun like newly weds. These pictures were taken recently at the Berlin stop of her world tour.

10 Major Parenting Mistakes To Avoid

Posted in: ,

By Tara Kennedy-Kline

We hear it over and over again; every book, article and TV show confirms it: parenting is the hardest job on the planet. But is it really? Is raising a happy, healthy, well-behaved child truly more difficult than rocket science? Should it truly require a Ph.D or are we—as parents—looking to get off the hook for being judged for our mistakes? Here's a list of top 10 parenting mistakes and how to prevent them.

Baby Oku or Pregnant Mercy Johnson in America

Posted in: , ,

Before now, I had not seen Mercy Johnson in a purely comedic role, the closest was in Fighter or Royal Fight or something like that, maybe part 1 and 2 of the same movie. However, this movie trailer is hilarious, though it makes the movie look tbh, more like several interconnected skits. It also reminds me of Osuofia in London, one of the few Nollywood comedies I enjoyed.

Victoria Kimani - Oya ft. Mi [Music Meets Romance]

Posted in: , ,

Victoria Kimani is a sole female artiste from Kenya and the only woman on the Chocolate City label. This song is basically R&B, and imo, nothing overly fantastic about the singing or the lyrics. I like the lines by MI though, he raps really well and quite down to earth here.

A TTC Husband Writes a Letter to His Unborn Child

Posted in: , , ,

When I read this letter, tears almost came to my own years. As a woman who lives with unexplained infertility, I can totally get where this man is coming from. While we have certainly come a longer road than the couple in the letter - 4 years married to their 1+ but the experience and feelings are mostly the same no matter at what stage you are. And I know indeed that men also cry. I pray the couple gets their heart's wishes in a good time for them.

Should Men Carry Their Girlfriend's or Wife's Handbag?

Posted in: ,

In the picture of Zoe Saldana with her new boyfriend [see here] he is carrying her handbag and that got me thinking. One often hears stories of men who say they would rather die than carry their wife's or girlfriend's handbag. Then there are those who don't really mind or wouldn't but fear being teased or thought to be less of a man if they did that.

A friend spoke of how after her husband helped her carry her handbag - she was carrying their baby and had to answer a phone call so handed hubby her coach tote - her own father who had also been there warned them seriously. She had to respectfully disagree with her dad, and her hubby spoke up too. The father was worried about gender roles, appearances of respect and what people would say. The couple on their part tried to emphasize that what mattered was their relationship and whether they understood each other. He was just helping.

Now, I don't want to make it seem like carrying a woman's handbag is like the ultimate of all symbols of love. The gesture, on its own, is not a definition or confirmation of love, but can be a way to show you care for your partner, PDA if you will.

The funny thing for me, or maybe not so funny, is the way some men look at female handbags like there was a contaminable disease they could get by carrying one.

No Sex in Your Marriage? It May Be More Common Than You Know

Posted in: , ,

According to a recent report, it seems that it is very common for wives and mothers to ‘shut up shop’ and stop having sex with their partners if their family is complete, or for the men to do the same for lack of libido. Another reason for lack of sex could be a health problem that affect the sex drive or organs, like a hysteroctomy in women, or prostrate cancer surgery in men. For the first reason for no sex, I guess if the primary reason the couple got married was for children, then it makes sense?

The report goes on to detail the marriage of three couples who have not had sex for varying amounts of time, between a year and eight years. If you ask me, I'll say the first two marriages are in trouble if the partner who lacks the desire or motivation for sex does not get some rest or therapy and work with their partners to rekindle their sex lives. The last couple are in their sixties and the woman it seems has already come to terms with a sexless marriage - more like a companionship arrangement.
