LETTER TO MY EX.

So last night, I decided to read through my older posts and memories came rushing back. With the memories came a realisation that amazes and excites me at the same time. So, I decided to write a letter I should have written a long time ago ( I probably did not write it because I hadn’t arrived yet). “Ex” in the title doesn’t only refer to persons I’ve had amorous relations with; it refers to all the friends, acquaintances and individuals I met and had to leave behind.

WOULD YOU MARRY A WOMAN WHO EARNS MORE THAN YOU DO?

A man must earn enough and cater for his family. He is the head of the family after all. A man’s “krakye” (gentleman) power lies in his ability to spend the paper. So society makes us believe. Society makes us believe that the woman must always depend on the man for all her financial needs. …
