4 things couples must agree on

16 June 2015, 15:13 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - When they coined the term opposites attract, I think they were talking about intelligent to idiot not because intelligent needs an idiot in the house but because the idiots cannot survive without the intelligent people. On the other hand, intelligent people also like their own kind around them and it is on these occasions that the dumb will be left to deal with their counterparts. Which is never a good match especially when the both of you become lifelong partners who are trying to raise a family. I do not know as a parent, what you look for when your child presents the person they would like to be their partner to you, but I am starting to understand why some parents are against a person. They know their child’s weakness and the hope that the child can find someone who will hold the fort but not help in its downfall.


Do not know how to raise their children

Let me start by saying, I appreciate my father a lot. He also has a good head when it comes to making money but when it comes to children let me tell you we would have been a failed experiment.

He never reprimanded us and when I was done with high school my father also did not think that I needed Campus. He said, ‘Now that you are done, hauwezi ngoja wengine wamalize wakufikie? The last born was in class two at that time, I do not know if my father thought I should wait ten years before thinking of University or he just did not think it was that important. Now imagine if my father had an idiot for a wife who was more concerned with purses and shoes! Just think of those children.

Do not know what to spend their money on

Whoever said money does not make the world go around must have in jail because even monks and nuns sell produce they grow in order to make money for other things. You cannot give what you do not have! You need money to be a giver.

A couple that is made of two people who are not wise with money is not a good couple. If the both of you get the salary and are more concerned with outfit, drink, as well as white elephants in the household then the both of you are already doomed. The scenario in that house is at the middle of the month and neither of them has a savings account nor money for emergency. They will both be looking at how soon end month get here but they will will still do the same things. If they have children, that is when the child has not paid fees but the parents are both working and you wonder what the problem is.


Are too productive in all the wrong things

When you are more concerned with what looks good in church rather than what is actually taking you there. When you are too concerned with what looks trendy rather than what will be good for you.

Let me also say, there are adults who are sheep that are led to the water by the rest rather than look for what is good on their own!

When a couple has no sense of direction and are prone to make bad judgment calls, then it is a feast for the crows because it is so hard for an animal to change its spots.


Have public squabbles

This one, if you live in Kenya and go to the bar, the market, events or even when you just cross the road; you will meet such a couple. Always!

They are the ones who do not have enough sense to wait until they get home but want to fight for the rest of us to see. Go to social media in the name of shaming someone. Talk about their business on air.

They also have a set of principles they live by that you and I will never understand. No matter how hard you try.
