I could marry an uneducated Chinese farmer or stark illiterate American redneck. She is afraid the man might feel intimidated later, which is typical of our men these days! At times they do not agree on some issues due to their different ways of reasoning. After-all educated couples also have diferring opinions about issues.(this is common among Igbos) Does being literate mean being intelligent or being financially capable? Love is of three angles which include PASSION, COMMITMENT and INTIMACY. I am not saying she shouldnt go ahead, but she should consider it very carefully because it could b a real challenge to of luck Sections: politics (1) business autos (1) jobs (1) career education (1) romance computers phones travel sports fashion health religion celebs tv-movies music-radio literature webmasters programming techmarket Links: (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) Nairaland - Copyright © 2005 - 2017 Oluwaseun Osewa.
At times they do not agree on some issues due to their different ways of reasoning. yes oh there's no problem in it even if she gets married to an educated man they will still have problems , To find a good husband is difficult oh so I advice she marries him if they truly love each other Have you watched Fuji house of commotion? However you may be lucky to have one that wants to learn ,meaning shine your eye well well do not go for stark illiterate and e go better for you is a businessman but is confused because the man did not go to school while she is almost through with her Masters Degree. U know illetracy has levels eg pry sch drop-out, sec sch drop-out, Sch cert. My advice is you know this man very well, if he is matured in his reasoning and has high self esteem(not intimidated by your level of education) and u consider your age difference appropriate u can marry him. What love has got to do with being literate or illiterate? Since marriage is a lifelon commitment, so many issues will arise along the way that will require both parties to reason on the same wavelength to resolve amicably. 89Disclaimer: Every Nairaland member is solely responsible for anything that he/she posts or uploads on Nairaland.
You may read the article here: “You Should Date An Illiterate Girl” by Charles Warnke When I saw this article on the net, I was really curious.
They don’t have high expectations over relationships and commitments. As for intelligent girls, they have higher standards on almost everything. They know what kind of story they want their love story to be. However, I don’t think that choosing the illiterate girl over the intelligent one means that the latter is lesser than the former.
It is true that an intelligent girl who reads, have higher expectations and knows a lot of things.
Let the anxious contract you’ve unwittingly written evolve slowly and uncomfortably into a relationship. Retreat into it every time the air gets stale, or the evenings get long. Syntax that knows the rhythm and cadence of a life well lived.
For that matter, do not be overly concerned if you cannot feel it at all. If she cries, smile as if you’ve never been happier. A girl who reads perceives the difference between a parenthetical moment of anger and the entrenched habits of someone whose bitter cynicism will run on, run on well past any point of reason, or purpose, run on far after she has packed a suitcase and said a reluctant goodbye and she has decided that I am an ellipsis and not a period and run on and run on.
First of all, to use the word “illiterate” to describe a girl, is something really rude.
