This is NOT the actual couple

“He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage,” the papers said, quoting a court source.

“He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.

Women just can’t get enough of the single life. Women looking for love may disagree with that statement, but according to columnist Hadley Freeman, America’s women have a skewed view of marriage and relationship, and in her own way, she helping put an end to the epidemic.

SINGLES

First, Freeman theorizes that single women who really want to get in a relationship need to change their perception of Mr. Right. Maybe you’re perfect person is not the man who fits every criteria on your dating list, but is the guy who has been under your noses this whole time.

Siting an article written by a 39-year-old single woman who broke up with her boyfriend a decade earlier only to realize that playing the field so many year’s later isn’t as interesting as it used to be, Freeman states that the real issue holding women back is “marriageability.” Single women everywhere (and most importantly in New York City, where she resides) don’t look at marriage as the only way to be happy, and therefore may have become too independent for their own good. While different shows (like ‘Sex and The City’ which was called out in the article) and movies work to hold the single life on a pedestal, Freeman sees it as an obvious example of the shift that has taken place with women’s goals of settling down.

The jury is still out on why there is an influx of women accepting that marriage and/or life-long companionship may not be in the cards, but one can’t help but wonder if examples in the media have made single women pretend to feel empowered by being unattached, as a way to feel better….

The award winning TV presenter and host of  The ‘Stand Point’ Gifty Anti has told Graphic Showbiz about her new man and also about the fact that she is not in a rush into marry.

“I don’t hate men and I’m not against marriage. Besides, it is not the woman who decides but the man. The woman can only drop hints but the final decision depends on the man and what he wants. I think I will marry when my man is ready but if not, I don’t think I’m so desperate for it” says Gifty.

She also spoke about the challenges and pressure from both her family and society. Gifty Anti,  like most christians believe 

when is comes to marriage God’s time is the best, she believes marriage is not a race!

Gifty also added that, the Ghanaian mentality that successful women drive away potential partners should be changed, instead they should be proud of successful women.

“That is what our society has turned women into. How can a lady’s success drive away the men who claim they appreciate her? Shouldn’t they rather take pride in their success?  But that is the society we live in. If you are not strong, you fall for it”, 

She confirmed that “In the past, I used to envy married couples but with years of experience, I’ve grown to admire them. I’ve come to realize that we all have a purpose in this life and it is for everyone to appreciate his/her usefulness on this earth.

“Everybody has the destiny. I know married women who have excelled and single women as well. I don’t think a person’s contribution to society should be weighed by the marital status,”…

Keep up the good work!

We wish Gifty Anti all the best of luck. 

She’s one of the cast of the play “Hear Word”. Speaking about how easy it is for her to return to work despite having two young children at home, Dakore said she has a great support system who help her with the kids and that marriage and motherhood hasn’t slowed her down “My mom is with my kids at home.

 

My nanny is also at home. By the Grace of God, I have a great support system. My husband is very understanding. They believe in what I am doing and encourage me to forge ahead, so I can give my all to my job. With balancing marriage, motherhood and work, I prioritize.

The home first. And when my husband realizes I am deviating from my duty, I have to push myself back. Family first and once family has been taken care of, I can then fly….
