Why She Decided To Marry Her Pet Dog

The recent wedding in a certain village, somewhere in Southern part of Africa, hit airwaves in a negative tone.

Apparently, this woman—a thirty something year old— walked down the isle in a church wedding but her husband to be was not a two legged being, but a four legged animal— the dog.

The shocking wedding was officiated by the controversial Man of God who in the past shocked many by doing something silly that left the whole country talking in hush hush tones. The recent wedding will only add a further doubt in his claims to be the chosen one in the village.

Going back to the lady in question, according to her… she has never known the meaning of a family and her dog has always been there for her, she has always made sure to take care of him just the way he deserves

And a man in is nothing but a noun in the English language. She said,

I grew up with a single mother because my biological father was an irresponsible parent. He could not take his responsibilities, forcing my mum to do her duty and his duties too. This is to say, my mum did everything she could to make sure the family was whole… I’m not ready to take the same route in life. That is why I chose my pet over men out there.”  

Well, the reason for going to her dog as her companion is the fact that,

  • The Dog understands her emotional feelings much better.
  • The dog will not pester her with questions about her privacy.
  • She is gonna be more independent on her own.
  • The dog  is the man’s best friend hence it won’t hurt her in anyway…
In her parting shot, she told the nosy lot that,

”You say , all men are dogs, then why bother if I find myself a real dog for a husband…?

Oops! That was so rude…. But we wish her all the best in life.

Forgoten Social Values

Nothing is wrong with women being empowered to take up a bigger place in the society. In fact we advocate for equality in every aspect and when we see women being subjected to a second class or only coming at a second place after the man, we ask question as to why there is still such kind of gender setting in this time and era.

But as we appreciate the society and transformations it has undergone to bring out the power of women, we have to admit that somewhere along the line… we messed up!

Money defining a man,

‘I can’t stay with a jobless man. Real men just don’t wait for their wives to provide for them.. they should do something to make their own money. My money is mine alone, but his should cater for his family. I just can’t allow him to feed on my sweat.” A female caller said these on the national radio.

Well, she was not alone. Other women who contributed to that morning radio show had similar views. And some calling to say they never ever entertain a jobless man. And someone even put it is straight that is her husband loses his job, she will move on with her life and forget about him. These clearly show that money defines a man.

Powerful woman who despises the society,

Well, as she was being empowered we forgot to mention the need to uphold her values in the society.

‘What are you doing with that dog, anyway?’ A message from a certain Nollywood movie when a woman told her best friends that her husband is a jealous type who do not like seeing her talking to strangers.

According to these women, a woman should be free to do whatever she wants and whenever she desires. Here is the advice they gave her,

“Ditch the dog and enjoy life girl… life is so short to be stressed up by a man.”

So strange, huh!

Well, to these women, marriage is a gage that should be avoided in all means. Being free defines what they need in life. According to them, marriage is for losers who have no time with themselves.
