Rant Of The Day – Put A Ring On It

By Grace Shaibu

Hello Readers,

Welcome to the rant column. 

Happy post Valentine’s Day to everyone and I hope you all had some good fun and celebrated with the deserving people in your lives. It’s no news that some people don’t understand what this day means, but I will say, always make sure you do the right thing in and out of Valentine’s day.

There is something I have noticed now amongst young ladies which I find very appalling and uncalled for, the rush for marriage, the rush to get engaged. Jeez! Every time, I feel like young women should be lectured that their sole purpose isn’t marriage but everything added is what Marriage is. The craze is unending and I know social media life isn’t helping women at all.


I have heard stories of women putting up a fight just because they feel their spouse should propose and he hasn’t. They begin to coerce him to do that. Excuse me, proposal comes willingly, you cannot force it. If he loves you to the extent of spending the rest of his life with you, you don’t need to teach him how to do that. Both of you are in the relationship, stop making him feel it’s an opportunity to have him while he should be the one appreciating the fact that he has you in his life, you have much more to offer.

As a smart woman, you should be able to decipher a man that is serious about you and the one who isn’t. Love with your head and not your heart alone. Be smart about your relationship and stop behaving like a pauper.

Sister! If he looks like he doesn’t want to be serious about you, Move ahead! You don’t have to coerce, cajole him to propose… Marriage should not be based on pleas.

    This is very real and true. I don’t understand why we have to beg men to propose while they should be the one doing the begging and then, the way women jump when these guys propose, it’s annoying.

    I think women need to understand that when a man like them, he does and he doesn’t need a force to do the right thing. When a man is pressured, he won’t own up.

    I am loving the rants so well, please don’t go MIA again o. This topic is very real because I have a friend whose girlfriend has been telling me to speak to him to get her engaged, and i’m like babe, just calm down but she keeps saying all her friends that started before her are about to get married now. I will surely share this link with her.
