A thread on marriage: so many discouraging comments


Village Elder
Bad news travels faster, so bad marriages and domestic problems will always dominate headlines rather than people who have good and happy marriages.

A single person living in apartment block where he can hear the neighbors wife akichapwa kama burukenge can develop a completely pessimistic view of marriage from that single event.

Should we blame him or her for generalizing that marriage is a shitty deal? Of course not.

From a risk analysis perspective, it's the most rational attitude every thinking human being should have, when scary stories about marriage dominate the news cycle. Nobody has time for statistics when self preservation and human happiness is at stake.
Marriage is not for the faint hearted. Kwanza kama huna pesa ni taabu tupu. Sikiza hao waluhya wa patanisho n u will discover the common thread in all those cases ni mwanaume hata kakitu. Multiply that by the rate of unemployment n u realize maisha ya ndoa sio mchezo. That is why g** men like @Mimi Huwa Namwaga Ndanii tend to be happier.
Patanisho is a scripted show. Get that through your skull. Any such segments on radio are scripted to bring in more listeners, hence, advertising revenue.
Hata wale wa "nimeshinda". The whole ruckus is rigged man.
Get off that bandwagon ya kuwaste time.
