We Move On

“I asked my mother why she was staying in that marriage. She feared being alone. She feared being rejected by other men for being ‘too old’ or a mother of four. She was in her mid-40’s. She didn’t want to fail at parenting us by herself. So, I asked her, ‘If…

He's Close

“Everyone suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime. It’s what unites us. The trick is not to let it destroy your trust in others when that happens. Don’t let them take that from you.” ― Sherrilyn Kenyon “My dad left the country when I was 9 years…

Mr. T

“I’ve seen the Black Stars of Ghana train for the World Cup, but have never won. Making the decision to want to commit to my wife in this marriage never guaranteed my faithfulness, which happens to be her ultimate expectation of me. I wasn’t sure I could meet those…

She looks familiar

“I was in my worst and best moment. Worst in the sense that, I had broken up with my ex-boyfriend and was in a very bad disposition. Best moment in the sense that, I had met this stranger who was good at making me forget my misery. When I least expected or felt like I…

It takes 3

“Dave, on a typical weekend afternoon at my Achimota complex, you would find me, my first wife, second wife and five children playing together as one unit. We all live here together, not as roommates but as a family at home. I am married to two women. No, I’m no…

Tired of being tired

“He’s never said ‘I love you’ to me before but he sends me GHs 3000 every month, for 9 months now, to take care of myself. I have a special account for that bonus money, and I keep it hidden from all my transactions, so my husband accidentally, does not see it. I…

Last wishes

Will give it all up

Some of us have become so busy in life that, we’ve allowed the lot to distract us from getting around to the very things and people we’re not supposed to be taking for granted. At the back of our minds, we know we’re neglecting the very people we’re to make a…

A sweet place to fall.

“She doesn’t have to do much to get my attention. She doesn’t have to do much to get me interested. She doesn’t have to do much to get me in love. She doesn’t have to do much to keep me aroused. She doesn’t have to do much to make me forgive. She doesn’t…

Loaned Out

“He is a good guy, and the type that would do anything for me and our children. When I was battling cancer, he nursed me through it, took loans from banks just to ensure I got the treatment I needed. He stood by the kids when I couldn’t be there for them at home. He…

Revelations 4 verse 2

“At that point, there was nothing I could do as their friend. I needed to wait for that moment she would come to terms with the fact that, her husband had made a choice, and it wasn’t her. I needed to wait for that moment she would make the hardest decision to let go…

Just It

“She may not have been the preferred type to excite my vision as a man, but she’s become the love of my life over the years due to what we both have created and committed to. She’s not perfect but she’s my best decision yet. I am happy with my decision. I am not…

Married to George

“My father has been a strong support in my life. If I know how to respect and love myself, then he was the teacher of that, but he did not walk me down the aisle to give me away to my husband, my children did. We just held hands down the aisle together to start a brand…

He pursued a church girl

“I’m beginning to suspect my husband joined my church basically to hook up with a decent ‘church girl’. When he first approached me, there was no attraction. I realized he liked me when he started hanging out with me at church activities, and was also trying so…
