BROKEN HEARTS CAN HEAL


My wife is
mean
I
am a medical doctor, while my wife is a qualified nurse/midwife, who works with
the government. For a year, I denied myself the excesses of life by saving to
start a business of our own —a medical diagnostic clinic. I need her full
attention to help oversee it in order for me to complete the two Masters
programmes I am running concurrently. She said she can only stop work if I buy
her a car because she is also saving to buy one. She also said that she cannot
risk losing her job for the business, and that it will still take time for it
to succeed. But I can’t buy her a car in the next one year because I need to
invest in the business and I can’t afford employing a manager, who will earn a
fat salary. I offered paying her current salary yet she didn’t agree. I feel
she does not want to sacrifice now and I am hurt. This is affecting my business
focus. I have enough to feed my family with for a year, yet my wife is doubtful
and does not want to join me in the profession. Do I pay her back in her own
coin when I become successful in the business?

Resigning from a job
involves the act of weighing of gains, losses and life ever-after. Though your
kind of business is lucrative and needs the help of a professional like your
wife, you have to carefully convince her on what both of you stand to gain.
Don’t take it hard on her or pick a quarrel with her over this. Even if you
cannot buy her a car now, your approach to this issue and how you table
everything before her will make her see more than a car. Don’t be hurt, I am
sure if you work well on your wife, she will agree.
I
love old men

I am 28 and would have been married but I keep falling in love
with older men. Whenever I am dating a man, who is 10 years older than me and
he proposes, my parents would refuse on the ground that he is older than me.
The truth is that I feel more fulfilled with them. With an older man, I am not
as stressed as when dating a young man. Currently, I am in a relationship with
a 29-year-old man who complains about my weight always. Really, I am not a fat
person as I weigh 55kg, but my tummy is not flat and my boyfriend keeps
complaining to the extent that he went to register me at a gym! If he takes me
out to eat, after every bite, he complains about my tummy and this depresses
me. Do I quit? Or do I forget about young men because a lot of my friends are
also complaining too.

Age
is irrelevant and marriage is simply living happily with a partner and
weathering through life’s storms together based on same principles, beliefs and
ideals.  It is sharing love physically,
emotionally and connecting well spiritually. Maybe your parents have failed to
realise that being 10 years older than you, as long as he is a bachelor, does
not make him a ‘sugar daddy’. If he were married, I would have understood their
concern but with a bachelor, you should be able to convince them that you are
more comfortable with him than the man who is bothered about your weight. Date
someone you are happy with and hide the man’s age from your parents. When you
are happily settled as a wife, they can get to know the real age.
She thinks I am impotent
I am 27 and she is 24. We
are both medical students and she thinks I am impotent just because I have
refused to have sex with her. What do I do because I really love her?

Let
her understand your reasons for refusing to have sex. I appreciate your stand
on pre-marital sex but there are times you must try and get intimate with her
to convince her you are strong.  You can
kiss, hug and let her know you are 100 per cent alright.
I love a widow
There is this lady I want
to marry. She is 36, while I am 34. She lost her husband some years back and
she has two kids. I love her dearly but I don’t know what to do.

No
big deal, you can go ahead to propose to her but you need to know how to
convince your parents/relatives on why you are marrying a widow with two children
when you are not a father yet. If you are comfortable with her past, go ahead.
She is single mum, older than me
I am 24 and I date a 30-year-old
lady, who is a single mother of one. I really love her and we have been on for
two years.  Now, anytime I called her on
phone, she would reject my calls but whenever I hid my caller identity, she
picked the calls. Whenever I drew her attention to this, her excuse would be that
she was sleeping or that she was busy and didn’t know when she rejected those
calls. This occurred everyday and I wonder what I did wrong.

Obviously,
your lover is tired of you and wants you out but you have refused to see the
handwriting on the wall. This could be a go-away sign but if you are still bent
on dating her, then you need to examine the situation and talk to her.
He runs after other girls
I am 25 and I have been
dating a man of 40 years for about nine years. 
When I gained admission into the university, we had problems. Even now
that I am a graduate, things are not better. While I was in my third year, he
was engaged to a girl, who later disappointed him. I never knew this and he now
proposed to me last year. He is fond of  
running back to me whenever he has problems with any girl he dates. The
worst was when I got pregnant last year and he asked that I aborted it. I want
to call off this affair, please what do I do?

He
is a time waster. For a 40-year-old man to ask for an abortion depicts deceit.
If you can cope without him, why not leave him and make yourself available to a
better man? What if he walks down the aisle with another woman? Leave him now!
