I was trying to take my sunday siesta when I got a call from Nonso, I quickly answered the call and was alarmed to hear her crying from the other end of the line. She could hardly speak to me. I tried hard to calm her down to no avail. The line went dead, I called back and got a very sad news. Nonso’s fiance has called off their engagement. Ah ah! This came as a huge shock. I asked why and she said because she told the guy she has a child out of wedlock. Hmmmmmm! The guy claimed that his family will not accept a woman who has a child out of wedlock as a wife. So the entire family condemned and rejected a woman simply because she had a child out of wedlock. Now my question is, is having a child outside wedlock enough reason to call off an engagement? Does having a child out of wedlock devalue a woman? Please friends, what’s your take on this? Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!… Marilyn Anona.
