4 reasons break-ups are common in Kenya

13 July 2016, 17:39 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Why are break-ups so common in Kenya?

Marriage is hard

You cannot tell me anything else because that is what I know; MARRIAGE IS FREAKING HARD! Period.

That is why a lot of young couples end up divorcing very fast; a year or two after marriage because now they have realised that that was not their soul mate.

Aside from love, marriage needs dedication. Our generation does not know the meaning of that word. And commitment- it is also not in their dictionary. That is why most of us are very fickle- jumping from one point to the other or one relationship to the other; eventually it will be one marriage to the next one.

Lack of respect for each other’s ideas and ambitions

You tell someone something and they laugh you off. Your partner does not take you seriously. Most relationship begin when either partner has already boxed their spouse into a certain category. This is where a lot of misunderstandings come from. When something eventually means something to you and you don’t see eye to eye; it creates a hostile environment because people these days stand up for themselves and they would rather leave than stick around where they know they are not supported’

You fell for the honey moon stage

Take your time in relationships. I don’t think there is such a thing as love at first sight. Get to actually know someone. Don’t rush into a wedding and then the surprises start popping up. You date a few months, decide you want to marry, you do and then you get to know them in marriage, then they are no longer your soul mate.

It works for a few; you might not be those lucky few.

Banking on chemistry alone

Don’t! Connection is great; sex is also not bad but they are not the only things that form a relationship. You have to work on the others as well; communication should be perfect-don’t shy away from anything, say what you want to say, ask, interrogate and all that. Mental, and emotional from both sides are also key.
