Relationship Talk


Dear Bukky,

I’m having so many guys coming to ask for my hand in marriage, and I have a boyfriend who says he loves me; but whenever I talk about marriage to him, he tells me he doesn't have money and that I should not force him to marry me, that he will do it at his own time.

Hi reader,

I presume from this mail that you are wondering if you should go on and marry one of the other suitors or if you should wait for your boyfriend to be ready.

In my opinion I think you should wait for that your boyfriend – provided you love him back.

If his love for you is undoubted and if you love him back, I think you should not let external pressure from those other guys get to you.

The promise is there from your boo that he will loves you enough to marry you and spend the rest of his life with you – all you need is a little patience.

As you must know, marriages are not sustained only by the power of love – it requires a lot more than that, and being financially stable is one of the things needed.

I advise you to keep calm and let him do it in his time as he said.
