4 things couples must agree on

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
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
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.
