Please I need to know what fellow blog readers think about this - I have been dating this guy since March this year. He is nice, cool headed. We are both based in Lagos. I'm 31, he's 34.
Right now in my life, I'm tired of being called someone's longtime girlfriend. I'm looking for a man who is looking for a serious commitment. And when I say serious, I mean marriage and babies. So, at what point should I ask him if he wants the same without scaring him off? How do I even bring it up without sounding desperate, marriage or baby crazy?
Would love to hear from TILB married couples too - when did the topic of marriage first come up in your relationship during your single days? Please help a sister out before I ruin this.
My wife is an Arsenal fan while I am a Man United fan. Normally that shouldn't be a problem. However, the fact that I know that she became an Arsenal fan because her ex was an Arsenal fan is what kills me. She never supported any club till she met her ex who enticed her into Arsenal. I have told her severally to stop rooting for Arsenal but she says she prefers their style of play and just loves the club.
I don't want to appear like a chauvinist but why can't she just change her club? Does she

I just found the post the Founder of Trinity House, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, made on his church's official Facebook page, claiming he has found a solution to the deadly Ebola disease, which has killed no fewer than 670 people and infected more than 1,000 in Africa.
Ighodalo says that God’s “anointing” and the “living words of Jesus,” were all that are needed to cure the deadly disease. He is drawing inspiration from the late Canadian–American Pentecostal pastor, John D. Lake, who, according to him, cured those infected by the virus. He says he can perform the same feat as Lake who reportedly laid hands on some Africans infected by the Ebola virus and healed them. Read their post after the cut
