My name is Kalicha. I am 25 years old. Second child in the family of five children. My parents are the best in the world as they never allowed any of their children to suffer. They taught us good manners too. Part of my plan in life is never to mess up with any guy, I vowed that no man will sleep with me aside the man I will marry and this will be on the night of my wedding. I have dated three guys but they all abandoned me because they all wanted to sleep with me but I refused. I cried so much to the extent that I didn't want to keep my vows any more. But I prayed ceaselessly to God to lead me in the right path to meet my own man.
God answered my prayer in a miraculous way as I met Charles. He is a perfect gentleman to the core and promised to wait till the night of our wedding. Our love candles burn brightly that I can't stand losing him. After a year of successful dating, Charles requested for s*x more often, he swore with the bible that he will never leave me and I will still be his wife and the mother of his children. All what he wants is a proof of my love to him and the assurance that he owns my heart completely.
Readers I need sincere advice on what to do, should I forget my vows knowing fully well that promise is a debt or I should lose the man I truly love and at what age am I going to date and marry another guy again.

The singer has said she thinks every musician needs to have another source of income, especially when they are still young and so much in the game. According to her, all creative talents are from God and what we gain from them should be regarded as gifts; they come free and while we still work hard to make a living from them, we should also do other things.
I work hard on my music and I earn money from it, but it does not end there for me. I am very passionate about food and cooking and that is why I started a restaurant business two years ago.
They also have to channel the money they have made from music into another business, by doing that they will have an insurance and pension for their old age and for their younger generation. Nothing lasts forever, she said.

`It was a dark secret. The kind that destroys lives, devastates families and decimates faith. Nobody shared it in any way with Valerie Spruill while her "husband" was alive. Four years after his death, she heard bits of the story. It was something about an absentee father, something about her husband. None of it made sense. That’s not until her uncle finally told her what no one else had: She had unknowingly married the father she never knew.
“I don’t know if he ever knew or not. That conversation didn’t come up,” she said. “I think if he did know, there is no way he could have told me.” “It is devastating. It can destroy you!” Spruill told CNN late Thursday by telephone. “It almost did.” 60-year-old Spruill of Doylestown, Ohio, went public with her story this month, first published in the Akron Beacon Journal, with the hopes that it would help others facing what seem like insurmountable problems. It’s a story that has gone viral, attracting attention as faraway as Australia and India where the questions are always the same, she says: How could that happen? It’s a question that Spruill said she has been grappling with since she first learned the truth in 2004, six years after her "husband" Percy Spruill died. She confirmed her "husband" was indeed her father through a DNA test, hair taken from one of his brushes.
