Why do African men go home to marry instead of marrying the women they’ve wined and dined and romanced right here in the US. More often than not most of these marriages are not based on love or affection.

Most of these women are well-educated, well-read and well-traveled; they are well mannered and have proven their reliability. Globalization and modernity may be creeping in on and chipping away at his manhood, he has found a way to protect his playground. To make his thoughts a reality, he marries a greenhorn.

I have had similiar issues including verbal abuse non affection including very little sex and lack of emotion.

I am a young woman and to any mans standards very attractive and intellegent.

There’s the belief that Nigerian mothers raise their daughters and spoil their sons…too true.
