Sorry i am in a different time zone and so i tend to forget blogging time. Hope your week has been fulfilling thus far?
My topic of the day is engagements. It seems these days there is a template for what people, most especially women expect.
Based on “our” brief survey from social media – not fully exhaustive, it appears as though it follows a pattern. I say without full certainty that a majorit of young women aged 21 to 28ish apply to this survey. The rubbish i just typed above – the statistician in me.
My point majority seem to want the stadium proposal – public proposal with cameras etc. Of course she should also be on fleek so the pictures and videos are instaceleb worthy. Anyways thrn the larger than life engagement ring. Dude drives a camry, but the ring should be big as in bigggg. I have seen naija jewelers on insta advertise “Cz diamonds” and you see people writing under the post “oluwa bless me oh”.
Now lets say oh boy has spent all his money buying ring and staging proposal and wants to recover before stomping down the aisle, should it be a crime? People propose at different times for different reasons- yes not everyone marries for love. Some engagements run longer than others. I for one can’t stand a long engagement, i have a wandering spirit in that if you hold on to me without a real committment i am likely to find a reason to break up. Thats my take on long engagements. Hubby and i were engaged for 1 month before we hit the registry. The picture below is what prompted this post. How long is too long to be engage?
Please share your thoughts. On the post above.
