How Can I Make My Son Born Out Of Wedlock Legitimate In Nigeria?

Good morning wives connection family. I had a fight with my inlaws because they show no respect when they come visiting. It's like my kitchen is a thoroughfare where they can just pick whatever they like as a takeaway, open freezer to see what's in there and even check pots on the cooker like we are mates.

So we exchanged some sour words with my SIL and she kept repeating that my son is an illegitimate child ;(
I had this boy before hubby and I wedded officially,  in

Can I Talk To Some Good Heart On The Blog?

Good morning Aunty Eya and the beautiful people of my ever warm wives connection. I feel like talking to someone. This marriage thing is a tricky road to travel. There are so many expectations that we place on ourselves and that we allow society to place on us. What we thought before we were married about each other does not always seem to be true after a few years down the road.

I married way too young - at age 21. I'm now 32. I fell deeply in love with my husband to the point of obsession. But I must confess that I can't stand him now. We've since grown apart tremendously. Throughout the years, we grew into different people (more so on his end). He's had sex with so many women while in our relationship, he’s lost count! Thank GOD, no STD's! In my heart, he's always had a side chick from past relationships or from social media connections, Whatsapp, Facebook, Twittter and some that I can't even pronounce names. I once tried my best to revenge with just one …

I Just Want His Attention

Good morning ma, I don't know if my husband is taking me for granted or something else. I love my husband, but sometimes I feel like the small dog who is circling around, jumping at the big dog saying "HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! LOOK AT ME!

Age is but a number, So, Don't Come Here And Tell Me Nonesense

Hello wives connect, I am a beautiful African lady that enjoys reading the blog. Though I am not Nigerian, I love Nigerian food and some aspects of the culture too. Please permit me seek advise on there. I am 42 and my partner is 27 we have been together since he was 20. This has never happened to me before and I would think twice if this were to happen again. We live together and have done so for about 3 years . We have had to go through a lot of judgment from various family members over the years and are still not in a good place. My partner's parents know about me and his Mum is fine but his Dad never has been which is fine. They are the only family members who even know I exist, as he has kept me a secret for so long. I am a naturally bubbly adventurous person who wants to live life to the full travelling and experiencing new adventures. All out holidays weekends away, trips out in the evening have 99% been planned by me. 

I have got to a stage where I find it extremely difficu…

Having issues in my marriage and any attempt to talk to my husband about these problems has turned into an argument

Hi Wives town hall connection, I'm  a silent reader of wives connection who has learnt so so much from the blog, having issues in my marriage and any attempt to talk to my husband about these problems has turned into an arguement that has gotten nowhere. I am married with four kids including a pair of twin. Our oldest son is just 6 years, a four year old and two year old twin. I think the main issue we have in our relationship is that I dont feel like I am getting enough support and help from my husband. He feels that because he works and I stay home, I should be responsible for everything relating to the house and kids. A lot of the other issues we have I think all stem from this e.g. our sex life is almost non existent, this is because I

My Husband Thinks That Sex Is Not That Important, Any Advice?

Hello bloggers, I am a 25 year old ardent blog reader and have been married to my 32 year old husband for over 2 years now. When I started dating him I felt like I finally found the guy that I have been looking for for my whole life. I am a sexually active person, love sex, I think it is important part of relationship and had amazing sexes with my exes.  But after all the disappointments I suffered in their hands, I decided that my next man will have to wait until after marriage. On our wedding night we were both too tired, so some days after the wedding, I realized that our sex drive level is so different and before marriage he was honest with me, he told me that he is never crazy about sex and I was already contemplated to break up but he is such a great guy, and I was never as happy as I could be with anyone else but him, all my previous relationship failed because I chose the wrong character and here I have such a great guy so I decided to stay with him and thought that I could gi…

How bad is it for me not to move with my husband to another city?

Hello Wc, my husband and I have been married for three years and we have always lived just 30 minutes away from my aging parents. My mother has retired from active service and she's been very helpful with the baby and I also am used to checking up on them from time to time as am an only child. Hubby just informed me he has applied for a job in another town about three hour drive away and initially I was excited but now after much thinking. I don't think I want to move to another town just yet. I prefer a 30 minutes drive to my parents to driving three hours just to see them. I don't know

I Want To Confess And Apologize Without Causing More Harm

Hi Mrs Eya, this is a confused male reader posting because I don't know how women think or look at issues. There is 21 days fasting and prayer going on in my church this month and as an ordained worker, it is expected that I participate, aside that, I made myself a promise that I'll be more committed in spiritual matters this year. Days are passing and very soon the programme will end yet, I haven't been able to fast because of the weight on my chest.

Reply from Mom Who Wants To Abort Her 4 Month Pregnancy

Thank you for your reply Madam. When I say my situation is deep, believe me it is really deep. I had three daughters and decided to try number four for my "boy", despite my husband's insistence that we were done with kids. Guess what I am carrying now; twin girls!

I fasted, prayed, sowed seed but for where? All I asked God for all my life was one son, just one! How do I now face the world with five girls? In this harsh economic situation, how do I fend for them if my husband refuses to care for them? Must life always be this cruel? Really, i'm cool with my three daughters I

Is It Acceptable to force my wife under this circumstance?

Hello Eya, I don't care if my wife reads the wives connection or not because I'm dying inside. I have to post this. I come from a family where as a child, I knew dad was cheating on my mother. My parents cohabitate. My father provides for my mother. She takes care of the house, in turn he cheats. He cheats to have his needs met since she has long since stopped responding to his needs. He will not leave her because? the reason I never knew. He remained with her even when each night we all saw her take a small mattress into the sitting room and sleep there instead of their bedroom.   Neither one of them was really happy. I swore I would never have that kind of marriage. Now it seems the only way to keep

700 Yoruba Names And Their English Meaning

Hello ma, I read the post of the blog reader that wanted to change their Yoruba name because they don't like how it sounds. Yoruba names are very special and highly respected by the Yoruba culture. In the Yoruba Kingdom, naming a child is sacred and treated with utmost respect and funfare. Naming of a child is done 7 days after the child is born and it goes with special prayers and sometimes religious incantations and prophecies. What follows after the Yoruba  naming ceremony is Entertainment of guests which can last a whole day or more. Relatives travel from far and wide to attend naming ceremonies. Please share this Yoruba names and their meanings on the blog for Yorubas in diaspora and for Foreigners married to Yoruba men.

15 Reasons why real men avoid single mothers? What About single dads?

An American author named Shawn James this week wrote a controversial essay titled 'Why Real Men Avoid Single Mothers' - detailing 15 reasons why men should not date single mothers. It's got people talking. Read below and tell us what you think...
1. Never Available. A single Mother’s schedule is never open. Single mothers are the kind of women to always cancel dates at the last minute. Something always gets in the way of a man spending time with her. It’s hard to have a relationship with her because she’s never there.
2. YOU are NOT a priority. Usually in a relationship the man winds up DEAD LAST. Behind, her kids, her job, the car, the kitchen sink, the stopped up toilet. Even the dog gets more attention and affection than a man involved with a single mother. Any man who gets involved with a single mother winds up a fifth stringer in a relationship. And he rarely ever gets called up to play.

3. Thinks the world revolves around HER and ONLY HER. A single mother is one of the…

My New Year Resolution To Confess What Happened Between My Friend's Husband And I

Happy New Year Aunty Eya, I have a confession which is part of my New year resolution.  It's a long story but please, bear with me. Delete my details before posting on the blog I beg you. It started some months ago. I have a friend, my best friend in fact, got married recently to a guy (that I had not known. They had dated for a little over a year, but he was in The States. She travelled to meet him and they quickly tied the knots secretly in an oyibo way. I had seen pictures of him and had even chatted with him online with her (they met online sha). He was cute to say the least, but I didn’t give it a second thought. I was, after all, married to a man that means the world to me. I love my friend dearly and really was just enjoying watching her get to know this guy, and seeing her happy was great because I know the heart breaks she has suffered in this country with useless unrealistic "boys"

Tips For 2016 as three hundred naira exchanges for a dollar

By now, it should be clear to all of us that this year will be a difficult one and to survive it, you just have to start planning from Day one.
Be prepared to let go of some things and spend only when absolutely necessary. If you have saved money, try not to touch it quickly.
Avoid capital projects in the next few months until you are certain of replenishing your bank accounts.
Avoid social travels that bring no added income.
If attending a burial, wedding, naming ceremony, marriage anniversary will eat into your savings, avoid them. You would be called names, accept the name calling but understand that these same
people will call you worse names if you have to borrow from them to feed your family.

Reduce your responsibilities. Your first duty is to your family. If you don't provide for them, others will rarely do so.
Talk to your friends who are working not to bother asking

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini puts on a brave face in first public appearance since 'filing for divorce from husband' at gym launch

If you watch X Factor UK, then you know Cheryl Fernandez, sits beside Simon Cowell with Rita Ora to her right. Cheryl hasn't been pictured in public for over three weeks, although has been keeping her fans happy with several selfies on her Instagrams in recent days. Daily Mail reports that the X Factor judge attended the launch of the boutique boxing gym on Chelsea's King's Road after earlier enjoying a training session at the same venue. The new venture is owned by her PA Lily England's boyfriend, Shane Collins. Earlier on Thursday, she posted an Instagram of herself enjoying some boxing with Shane, writing: 'K O'd by Shane.'

Go for old school Hollywood glamour in an off shoulder gown like Lady Gaga's + Leonardo Dicaprio's Response

It's not often we see Lady Gaga wearing something we'd love to have hanging in our own wardrobes, but last night at the Golden Globes the pop star nailed it and we're seeing her in a whole new light. She was elegant and oozed old school Hollywood glamour in a fabulous off shoulder gown by Atelier Versace. It's a classic look and one that's easier to copy in the real world than some of the other showstopping numbers we saw on the red carpet. We love the structured tailoring of this dress and the slinky train. It must have been quite difficult to walk in but totally worth it for the dramatic effect. Atelier Versace is the couture end of the luxury fashion house so will require an appointment with the designer to recreate this exact look, so why not just shop our edit below instead?  Another image after the cut.

8 Sure Things That Happen To Your Body After You Birth A Baby

That's partially because they're constantly filling up with milk, but also because they're engorged from all the extra blood flow needed to transform your chest into a 24-7 dairy. What's shocking is that sometimes, when you produce more milk than what you can expel, the excess milk and blood flow can cause serious discomfort. This shouldn't last long, though

Always Loving The Wrong Men But I'd Rather Stay Single Than Live With Someone I Don't Love

Hello Aunty Eya and Wives Connection and fellow Blog visitors who are always ready to help us silent readers with your wealth of knowledge. I'm 31 years old and I can say that I've truly loved only three people in my entire life and unfortunately they were  the wrong ones. My close friends are all in long term relationships and getting married and raising their beautiful families. Everyday I feel like I'm getting left behind. I feel old and discouraged,  I wonder why I can't fall in love or develop feelings for the right men, except those who will lie and deceive me and disappear when I need the relationship to move forward.But as much

Bird Flu + Lassa Fever, Temperature Scanning Has To Start Again In Nigerian schools And All Public Places

Abuja records first Lassa fever death. Schools, supermarkets, Churches, hospitals and all public places in Nigeria took up the task of scanning before anyone is allowed into premises,  what happened to this good habit? As soon as the World Health Organisation  (WHO) declared Nigeria Ebola free,  many dropped the habit and now there's free entry everywhere with no one bothering to scan visitors. Let this scanning habit return.  It's a good habit. The Federal Capital Territory has recorded it's first death of the deadly viral disease, Lassa Fever. Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Oyewole made this known during a visit to the National Hospital, Abuja where the patient died.

The medical director of the hospital, Jack Momoh, while confirming the death, said the patient, a 33 year old newly married man, was brought in unconscious

Good morning Aunty Eya and fellow Blog readers, I need to share my story here to encourage someone on this platform, one for all the yummy recipes my wife and I enjoy from wives connection, and two for the advice that has helped us have a better marriage as a Nigerian couple. 
I am the first child of my parents, as a child I always wanted the love of my parents, but could never understand what was wrong.  By age 9 after a sever beating, and thrown outside, I remember that I prayed to  God and asked him to take me away from this horrible life.  When I was twelve, I remember my mother telling me how I ruined her life for being born.  I'm in my 40's now and looking back all I have ever been was me being the Black Sheep in my family.  I joined the military at age 20 to make a better life.  After leaving the

The Things We See Today, Won't Even Dare In The Days Of Elijah! Gunmen kidnap Redeemed Church pastor during service in Kogi, demand N50m ransom

Has God truly gone farther away from this planet because of sins and filth? In the days of old, honestly, fire will rain down as soon as these kidnappers step foot on the pulpit.  Is that God has become more loving and enduring than he used to be. You know when we read stories like this. I begin to prefer that instant action, that thunder and fire judgement we read from scriptures. 
People should fear what might happen if they try to commit crimes in CHURCH but No, whatever criminals can do outside,  they carry to church and are able to execute whatever without fear. The number of curses raining on them right now? Uncountable.  Will any ill supernaturally befall them to scare others who try committing crimes on sacred grounds? I don't know... However, in my mind's eye, I can see the man of God commanding fire and paralysis on those kidnappers and I see them frozen into pillars of salt. I wish. A senior Pastor with the The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lokoja, Kog…

Wash the ripe and the soft, removing the stalks and pack in freezer nylons. Stack the

Good morning Auntie Ey, My family used to be very close, just like those Kardashians we see on TV, we are always there for each other especially my parents who I have seen sacrifice a lot just to make us comfortable and happy.

Sunday Night Quote, Sleep On This

“Shift your focus away from what you want (a billion dollars) and get deeply, intensely curious about what the world wants and needs. Ask yourself what you have the potential to offer that is so unique and compelling and helpful that no computer could replace you, no one could outsource you, no one could steal your product and make it better and then club you into oblivion (not literally). Then develop that potential. Choose one thing and become a master of it.Choose a second thing and

A Rebellious Wife Is Like Witchcraft

Read Below:

My daughter, Today you have become a wife.

The position of a wife is that of great responsibility. It is the responsibility of a home builder.

A wise wife will build her home. A foolish wife will  destroy her home with her own hands.

My daughter, don't be a foolish wife. Don't be a rebellious wife..Rebellion is bad. It is like witchcraft.

Rebellion will cause strife in your home.
Strife will cause war in your home
War will destroy your home.

War will destroy all the good things that you have. War will destroy you.

Remember that no individual or community or nation can make progress during war
If there is No peace, there will not be progress... THAT IS THE RULE..

My daughter, if you want your home to progress, let peace reign.
Prayers will not help you if you're disobedient and contentious..

My daughter, seek peace.
My daughter, with everything inside of you, seek peace.

Experiencing Verbal Abuse In A Subtle Way

Hello Aunty Eya, Happy new year to you and the very handsome baby Chairman of the family, please help me post this mail on the blog; 
Honestly, verbal abuse is just as bad as physical abuse. Growing up, there were 5 siblings, I'm the middle kid. When I was a teenager, I noticed my father would decide not to talk to my mom for weeks or even months at a time. There was a time when my younger brother just under me asked my mom if our youngest sister was adopted since dad didn't talk to her whenever he was not talking to mom. Even now that we are all adults, I don't see my dad showing her affection like a father should. When I tried to ask him, he said he loves all his children equally that it's my brain playing games. 

 I felt so bad for my sis because the silent treatment from a parent is just as bad as verbal abuse IMO...I vowed I would never treat my children that way, and I didn't. Now that my
