Would you bleach your skin to save your relationship?

The question might seem strange and weird to you, but when you consider the extent people would go to save their relationships, it becomes a valid question, right?

We all heard the Toke Makinwa story, about the many things she did to salvage what was left of her relationship with her ex-husband, and how the marriage eventually ended.

In that light, and also with regard to how there have been reports of people eloping with their partners so as to get away from their unsupportive families, and also of a bride calling off her wedding just to be with the 'real love of her life.'

In a poll created to know if people would be willing to change their skin colour, a great percentage [67.9%] voted  that they would never do that, while 21.4% say they'll do it if that is what is needed to keep their partners in the relationship.

The remaining 10% say they are undecided.

So, there you have it; bleaching appears to be one of the things Nigerians will never do for love.

One then has to wonder; why do all these bleached people we see around do it?
