The article from which most of the assertive statements above are sourced could sound like it makes too many general statements but in all many of the points made depict dysfunctional family settings that would rarely involve truly shared friendship and companionship which should be the major purpose of marriage, lots of families end up as partners, co-tenants, shareholders, sex mates, anything but lovers. The big question is “what’s missing in Nigerian homes?” As many as read this article are encouraged to make comments because you could be helping someone mend their homes.
