Am wondering why Igbo Men hate to marry in good time. Is it that they prefer money, house, wealth than having a wife? Please can somebody tell me why?
Hello guys. I want to get your opinion about this issue that has been on ground for a long time. If You go to some Churches today,You will see that most of the Women don't cover thier Hair during Worship or when going to Church service. I have seen some Pastors preached against it. I want to know, is it a compulsory thing for Women to cover thier Hair?

TODAYS MUSLIMS HAVE CHOSEN TO DISOBEY Allah!
I am sure that Islam is the religion of God Almighty but unfortunately its followers today have decided not to obey Allah, the Almighty God. How?
Prophet Muhammed (PBOH) is the religions leader and Allah has commanded all believers (Muslim) to follow him and that it is only by doing so that they can obey Allah.
But where is Prophet Muhammed today? He has died of course. Who then is his successor? Nobody! A vacuum has been created and there is no way Muslims can really obey Allah except they have somebody to represent this leader, Muhammed, whom they will follow exactly as if he is Muhammed.
I make bold to say again that except they have a leader worldwide, they can't obey Allah properly.
Though the Almighty Allah has chosen someone secretly to lead all believers in one God and whose advent would bring joy to the whole world, he hasnt yet appeared.
But if Muslims the world over know the significance of having a leader, they would quickly get together and chose one now.
The extremist Muslims that you hear their voices always can never speak for all Muslims, in fact, they are just harming the religion.
Islam is not the way they are portraying it, and some of what they do are evil, for example, suicide bombing there can never be any justification for that. And I have always wondered why good Muslims don't usually come out to condemn such.
Can you date a first time prostitute.
some people say well its alright by them as long she is not into it any more and some say tufiapa over my dead body.
What's your own angle to it?
I have noticed that guyz (not the dumb ones now) often look for matured babez to settle down with. I wanna ask why they cannot be matured too. Girlz also want matured guyz. Not some mummy's boy that cannot think beyond his ego/friends/football/gadgets. . .
Just thinking. . . If u want a matured girl, why can't u develop yourself too and be matured while u search for the babe.
how do u see polygamy between young people in the present day?
I look at myself and how i have related with my parents and
cared about them over these years and then concluded that
i would have been more caring towards my parents if i were
a girl or born female.
It is not that i don't care but there are things i don't do for them
but my sisters always do. My wife calls her mum everyday while i
call mine once in a month - that is if i remember - Well, men are not
supposed to be soft.
Presently i have a daughter and trust God to have a son soon. I have
this confidence that my daughter will care for me when i get old. Even
now, she is always asking me if i was okay, broke or in good health. Her
love is real and always look forward to her smiles when i get home
The question is, who cares better, girls or boys?
Be sincere in your response.
If you could choose a mother to come to the world thru in your nxt life who wld u rather it be?
As for me I'l like to come thru my wife
my mother be my next wife. LOL
i spotted dis subtitle on magazine cover somewhere and i keep wondering what people view might be.

What are you most scared of?, As for me,it's Poverty and loosing my Mum.Most especially my mum.I am the one taking care of her now . I know one day she'll die but it scares me when I think of that day.How about you ?
I live in a large city and had to go out of my way in a different part of town to where I normally shop to get some special ingredients for a dish I was preparing for a party.
I was driving past a house when I saw my girlfriends husband at the front of the house kissing and handling another woman during the middle of the day when he was supposed to be at work.
In hast I stopped my car and checked and double checked that is was my girlfriends husband and without doubt it was him. The woman he was with is a bit younger than my friend but they have a very similar look. There he was in broad daylight at the front of this womans home passionately kissing and handling her bosoms and bottom. It was obvious they had just finished being extremely intimate with each other and he was leaving.
I felt sick and angry that he could be so deceitful.
What should I do, tell him I know about his affair or do I tell my girlfriend what I saw OR do I just keep my mouth shut as it is none of my business.
I am so hurt for my girlfriend as she is so much in love with her husband and is a wonderful, loyal and dedicated wife and I havent been able to stop thinking about it.
A huge debate is on. Can Yar'adua be able to cope with second term if given the chance?

Every relationship is a learning experience. When a relationship ends you should take time to figure out what went wrong and reflect back to what your contribution to the demise of the relationship was.
What could you have done differently? What lessons did you learn or will you take into the next relationship?
For me I think I should have spoken up more. If something was bothering me I held it in and never said a word out of frustration. In the end my partner ended up taking advantage of me.
I no longer do that and I can tell that it has made a difference.
Who wins the world cup in Germany?

My boss is dangerously hot (He owns the company) I'm married. We kind of like to be just friends (No strings attached) do you think its okay?
Reader, if this happened to you, what will be your reaction?
On a radio phone-in program, there was this guy who presented his problem thus;
Caller: There's this girl I've known for about 10 months now whom I really really like. I've sent her flowers, called her as many times as possible in a day, everyday, told her sweet things most of it how I felt about her which was entirely true, tried everything to make her give me some attention but she just ignored me. I've moved on since then, though still single.
Then about 4 months ago, I got a new job, bought a car and moved into a new apartment (my own apartment). I guess she got word of this because
right now she wouldn't let me rest. She's filling my box with mails, my phone with sms messages and calls me like her father owns the network.
Please advice me as I don't know what to do.
This was the radio presenter's reply.
Presenter: This is what you should do; when you get home on a Friday night, call her up to let her know you'll be coming to her place. Then you rest a while. When you feel you've had enough rest then take a bath. Put on some neat clothes. Get a bottle of your best perfume. Then drive over to her place. When you see her, pull her close and give her a very warm embrace. Softly whisper in her ears ",
Na God go punish you!" Then you take your leave.
But please advice me,wat shld i do in a situation like this,because she's upset she picks up my fone,and smashes it into pieces.she likes bossing me around.she likes dictating moods.if she's sad,then i too must be sad.if she's happy,i too must be happy.am playing wit her,she's not in d mood,dats final.she's playing wit me,am not in d mood,i must be in d mood.they say a guy shld not lay a finga on a girl, she smashed my fone into pieces till now,she's aint sorry?maybe if i had given her d beaten of her life,she might hav felt sorry, pls ow do i deal wit this?
Please cn any1 assess da internet service providers in kaduna? And tel me which service provider to go for? Thnx. Awaitn ur replies.
IBB we all know has declared interest to contest for 2011 presidential election. Do you support that? and Why?
I read with great interest the thread about long distance relationships. Of this I'm curious: of every one who says that distance relationships DO work, how many would immigrate to a different state/country to be with their love? I'm dating a Nigerian guy and I would gladly adopt his home as my own, but I don't think I could possibly leave America permanently for Nigeria. His skills are very marketable here and he would do very well, but there he is, as he refers to himself - " a poor young man" and "a hustla." My reasons are based on economics.
I think ladies would be more likely to immigrate, but what of the men?

My best friend just got married a few weeks ago, can i still call her like always do?
How do you translate this specific body parts in your language:
finger, elbow, shoulder
toes, ankles shins, knees, pelvis
Do you have a general or common word for the leg or the hand which you use for its various parts.
For example, in yoruba we use the word ese to describe the leg, but what of different parts of the legs like toes, ankles, knees, shins and hips, do we use the same word like ese(in the case of yorubas) to describe all this parts of the legs.
What of the hand? is there a specific word for the fingers elbows and shoulder or you call them one general name like owo (in the case of yorubas).
There is always a controversy about cheating in relationship, the ladies always accused guys that they cheat on them but in contrary guys also argued that ladies are the most cheat in nature. How can we reconciled the statement?
Why are almost all the Nigerian movies out always bootleg?
Who is the best among these players: Christian Obodo and Wilson Oruma?'
I was wondering.
i have a six month old and she cries my head off most of the time.the thing irritates me so much and sometimes i really feel like i shld give a good beating.
Besides,the stress is just so much.Imagine six months after having a baby and my whole body still aches as when i was i just put to bed.
moms in the house,do u have a clue?How do i deal with this incessant cries?
A friend of mine - very pretty and nice girl - has two children from a black man (she's German) and now fell in love with a Nigerian, living in Nigeria.
I don't know if they have any chance, what will the guy tell his parents? that his woman has already children?
what do you think?
OK, so because of reading a different thread, i was reminded of something that I've been thinking about recently. I notice, that we, as people, put different values on sin. Like, for instance, coveting is better than lying, which is better than hating, which is better than lusting, which is better than committing adultery (even though they are the same sin) which is better than stealing, which is better than committing murder... etc...
People get put in jail, and even are given the death penalty when they murder someone... but you don't even always get in trouble when you lie.
The bible tells us that all sins are equal, that coveting and lying are just as horrible as stealing and committing murder. or if you look at it the other way, committing murder and stealing are just as OK, as coveting and lying.
But in culture, whether it be the worlds, or your specific contries, we put values on the sins. get in more trouble when we do one thing opposed to the other.
So where does this leave us?
We can't use Gods laws as human laws because then everyone would be in jail.
but we can't have murderers and rapists on the loose.
and if you ever go into politics, you have to put your own personal value on each sin, to know where you stand, so you can make decisions.
For instance, (i live in America), in America right now, we are having this whole issue on whether homo-sexuals should be allowed to marry. God says we should treat everyone equally. God also says that marriage is for a man and woman. It is a sin to be homo-sexual, but it's also a sin to lie. We don't permit those who lie from certain privileges. So what right do we have to permit homo-sexuals from a privilege such as marriage?
So, how do we decided, what sin is best. what our values should be, where we stand on political issues?
Does not matter . . big lie or small lie, as long as it would save someone's life.
Would you lie to save a life?
Am just wondering if anything is wrong. Is it normal for a guy to be 30 years with out any relationship? (Haven't had one in the past 5 years). And he wants to settle down in 2 years time. Please only objective views are welcome.

[color=#000099][/color] Hey ladies, how can you tell if your bf is a player?
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."²
This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.
With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true

The trend here has always been about bashing the leaders in government for not putting up electricity, roads or whatever, but I think we need to pause a while and take a wider perspective. Why are all the black nations both in and outside africa complaining of lacking the basic necessities of life? Is this supposed to be a curse or what? The black colour sometimes expresses horror, saddness and evil, and the black skin corresponds to this. What really happened during creation of blacks?
I have been going to church since I came into London 2yrs ago. (Catholic church)
What surprises me is that more of the congregation is made up of black people - especially from Africa.
Only elderly white folks go to church.
Are these not supposed to be the people who brought the religion to us?
They suddenly got tired?
Was it a convinient way of subduing our forefathers?
What is going on?
Some of white guys I spoke to laughed and told me that church is just a nice way Africans network and socialise.
A neat way for sharp people to become billionaires
I have started thinking about returning to the old traditional ways we have left to suffer and fade away.
Something is fishy.
At first, it was no biggie for me to even contemplate marrying one, but as I have grown older, I have realized that I would have strong reservations seeing my intended partaking in a love scene in a movie. Honestly, I just can't fathom how men and vice versa react when they watch their spouses in such despicable scene. What is your take on this? For me, no way would I endorse this behavior. And moreso, has anybody ever attributed the breakdown of marriages in Hollywood to the roles that these actors/actresses undertake in movies?
