Sometimes, you think you have seen it all; meanwhile you have not even seen half of it.
Reality shows can be real enough, but that is exactly just what they are: shows. There’s nothing wrong in enjoying such, really. The problem arises when you start to mix up your real life with the things you watch.
You’ll understand soon enough, on today’s agony aunt series.
Let’s take a look at this mail I got sometime this week;
Dear Agony Aunt,
I have been married for three years, no kids yet; and we have been very happy. My wife is a very big fan of Big Brother Naija, but that is not even the issue.
When the show was still on, if something happens to any of her favourites in the house, she will take it out on me. She can just be moody and start giving me attitude. Just because of Big Brother Naija.
Everything became worse when Tacha was disqualified. Ah, this woman will not cook, clean or do anything. She is just eternally angry.
Okay, Big Brother Naija is over, let me get my wife back. No o, she is still so engrossed with the aftermath of the show.
I do not even know what to do again.
Cases like this are very rare; but here’s what I told him:
You are going to have to be very patient with your wife. But then patience has its limits, does it not?
Honestly, sometimes all you need is a good sit-her-down talk. Sit your wife down, remind her how much you love her, and how you feel she has been neglecting your marriage.
Communication is very key in holding relationships together; especially marriages. And that is exactly what you need.
Try it, and there still is no change, then an ultimatum will do the job.
