Happines comes with a price

11 April 2012, 22:40

I’m a young a career professional who grew in a rather religious home. In a home like this your principles get laid down for you. In families like this the marriage that parents portray should be the guideline as to how your marriage should be.

Based on this picture you learn how to choose your partner. Believe or not even when you date, the person whom you dating must fit the criteria of parents. The friends, company your keep and even jobs that you choose should be family standard.


When my marriage failed, I felt like an absolute failure. I felt like I’ve led my family, church and community down. The day when I got off out my pain I started dating again. I have ventured in all sorts fun to make me forget about the past. All my life I dated girls that are at least 5 to 8 years younger than me.

My relationships after the divorce were normal, nothing major about it. But for the 1st time in my life I’ve been swept under my feet by an older woman. She is 6 years older then me, oh boy she makes my tummy turn and she makes my knees lame. She is a single mother and career professional .

I have a great deal of respect for her, she is proof that single mothers can achieve goals in life without hand outs. When we together it feels like I’m at peace with the whole world. Even I f I get to spend 1hour with her on weekend then  it feels like I’ve done my socializing for the weekend .

For the 1st time in my life I’m walking the path with a woman that provides me with intellectual stimulation. She is a hard worker and she makes me happy, she is the type that I will make my Queen.


The message that I want to bring across to my fellow countrymen and woman “is the family wishes always the right thing for you? “Or are you going to allow your life to be ruled by the opinions of others”

Africa Must Stop Rising and Start...

My contention is that, unless two issues are acknowledged and attended to, we may find ourselves punting 2016 as Africa’s big year, then 2017, and so on. Read more...

Don't disarm my SAPS

Campaigning for the disarmament of citizens is a repellent pastime in itself, and is but a degree removed from demanding that the police themselves be disarmed as well.  Read more...
