i will reply this by sharing with you a small discussion i had with a friend. He is married and a father of two. He wanted to date a girl whom i know very well and i try to discourage him because i know his wife who happen to be my friend. i asked him, hey do you remember that you are married....his response was; and so what, does that mean that i should not date, can one keep on eating the same food everyday, am "married but very available".


We burst into laughter and i told him that much as they men think that they have 100 percent chances to enroll for their MBA (married but available) degree, we women can also go on strike never to "go offline" even after married; we can still be married but still remain "online"; we are not even ready to go "invisible" to everyone but we shall chose the category "available" so that everyone signing in can see us........hahahaaaaa

we laughed and he said i should wipe that notion in my mind because we are in Africa. Here you see patriarchy at it peak because he said we men owns the power, we work the money, we can use it as we want; besides what women need is money.

mbomas are able to have sex with as many girls as they wish because they have the money to spend, they have the money to give the girl for all sorts of dresses, handbags, shoes, make-ups for the girls to be in the mode. It all about fashion--looking fashionable...it is life in the university. My younger brother was showing my photo to a classmate of his, the boy replied hey oboy your sister fine, my younger brother's answer was "e dey UB" (uni of buea). This to me seems that my brother was not only confirming the fact that his sister is beautiful, but that his sister is in the university. when he replied that his sister is in the university, his friend affirmed "no doubt". Then my brother concluded "if your sister go university e no fine, e mean say your sister e own na curse, e need make dem take-e go back for God". it was so funny to me and i was just laughing and these are some of the issues just as you have mention here. Girls want to look beautiful--they want to "show" that they are in the university [with some few exceptions anyway]

The money from scamers and 419 guys is sweet to eat, they can spend without mercy; after all there is probability that more money can come the next day. Scamers and 419 guys are young so you can even walk with them on the street, the money from mbomas sometimes can be bitter. It is all about sex in exchange for money....money whose sources are very questionable sometimes. However, with scamming becoming more of an occult than actual dealing, we are also scared of these scammers money........hahahaaa

it is a nice book just from what i have read now, of course it is all about money...money is power, it buys everything that you can think of on earth and people are prepared to do what ever they want to get money. Sex can be just something small for money to do.....men and their unsatiable sexual habits (without any bias, am just analysing)

I have not read Married But Available and i want to ask you if there is any portion in the book on mobile phones and relationships. it has lead to the breakdown of so may relationships messages of cheating are discovered, a mboma can stop flushing you with money if you answer a call which he suspects that you are cheating on him......hahahaaaa
