Mercy Aigbe’s Advise To Young Ladies On Marriage

Mercy Aigbe in a new interview has advised ladies to be calm and don’t rush into marriage, stating that the most important thing is to find the right partner and not just getting married.

They should take their time before getting married. Don’t allow yourself to be pushed into marriage. At whatever age or time you get married, the most important thing is to find your life partner because the truth is that when you find the right person, you just have to be happy. It’s when you are happy that you can be useful to your society and be productive. Maybe because marriage is an institution ordained by God, it is going through a lot of things. So, I feel the devil is taking it personal to attack marriages, be it celebrity. Marital problems are not synonymous with you being a celebrity or not. I just felt it is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. We should know that marriage is a divine institution and when we say we are married, no matter the challenges we should learn to cope and make the best use of everything we have. Marriage is not a bed of roses.

Is This Supposed To Be Funny?

Lord have mercy, nobody should pray to have any of these two. Before now most people were discriminating against people living with HIV/AIDS and no one ever prayed to have it. But now it seems a lot of people prefer having HIV than Ebola, knowing one can still live long with it. This ‘joke’ written by Tolulope Ogunbunmi has been going round on Facebook since morning with a lot of people reposting and confessing they prefer to be HIV+ than having Ebola. 

'A friend was feeling very sick, weak, he was throwing up. He was taken to the hospital and several tests conducted. At this point all his family members were afraid to touch him including his wife and children, he was even locked inside a room.

After some time a doctor came out and was about to break the news, before he said anything some of the man's relatives were even crying.

The doctor said " we have concluded all the necessary test and the result is, he has HIV/AIDS.

All the family members started shouting thank God, thank God, some were even singing praises. One called home immediately and said sister it is only HIV, not Ebola....'
