Worried Brenda

(Huffington Post)

A Pulse Nigeria reader, Brenda, shared a problem on Morning Teaser about the pressure being put on her by her family to get married against her wishes.

Brenda who is 39-years-old, is a career woman who has all it takes to settle down but she has been unlucky in love and as such, has made up her mind that she will remain single all her life.

Part of her letter reads:

"My name is Brenda and I am a 39-year-old career woman. I work in an oil company at a top level and without boasting, at my age, I have achieved more than most males in my age group can ever dream of. I have two duplexes in highbrow areas in Port Harcourt and I have two thriving businesses.

I have built a house for my parents in my hometown while all my younger ones have all graduated with two of them pursuing their Master's degrees in the UK.

The only snag here is that I have not been successful when it comes to men and I have gotten to the stage where I do not believe there is anything a man can do for me again and I have accepted my fate that marriage was not meant for everybody.

But my problem now is that my family has been on my neck to get married and they have literally married me off to more men than I can remember.

The last time I went to visit them in the village, my father gave me an ultimatum: to get married before the end of this year or he will not have anything to do with me again."

This was the poll poser for the day:

Must every woman get married?

And this was the response from voters:

60 % - Yes, marriage makes them complete

40 % - No, it is not compulsory for every woman to get married

So how would you vote?
