Irrespective of the way you see marriage, there are a lot of women who will go the extra mile to get what they want and who will never accept NO for an answer.
The society has placed a burden on a lot of Nigerian women so much so that they make them feel incomplete until they are married and in a man’s house. While this shouldn’t be acceptable in the world of today, it is something a lot of Nigerians hold dear due to cultural and traditional norms.
The moment a woman gets to a certain age, there are high expectations from friends and family for them to get married. Parents expect you to get married and give them grandchildren while all your friends see you as the only one left and repeatedly tell you that it’s time for you to get married which makes you feel left out.
This results in a lot of women becoming desperate to get married and fit into the expectations of the society. Furthermore, this causes women to go the extra mile to lie and trick available men into marriage.
Below are some of the lies and tricks women employ to lead men into marriage when they get desperate.
1. The ‘I’m A Virgin’ card
Believe it or not, some men still have a warped mindset and want to get married to virgins. When some women realise this, they simply claim to be virgins to deceive such men into believing they are one. Women that do this are smart enough to refuse having sex with such men until they make a marriage commitment saying that they are saving their virginity for the man they love.
2. Obeying And Doing Everything The Man Wants
Some Nigerian women know that a lot of men want women that are obedient and hardworking. These ladies will never argue or nag no matter what the man says or asks. These type of women would clean, wash and cook for the man every single time that these actions are required.
The minute a man gets tricked into marrying this type of women, they show their true selves. That is when such men realise that the obedience and hardworking mien put up by such women is nothing but a facade.
3. Answering To The Family’s Beck And Call
A lot of women makes it their point of duty to make sure the family of the man they are interested in loves them by doing everything the family expects from a potential wife. These women will suck up to any siblings, parent or family member the man is close to at least until the wedding day. The story may most likely change afterwards.
4. The Pregnancy Card
A lot of women employ the pregnancy card the minute they realise that a man is not serious and unwilling to make a serious commitment with them. Some women also employ this trick when they see that the man is financially buoyant and they know they have a secured future with him.
Even though the pregnancy trick doesn’t work for all men, it however does for some. As a matter of fact, some women even falsely claim to be pregnant and the moment the man makes a marriage commitment, they say they have a miscarriage.
5. Pretending To Be Religious
A lot of women pretend to be committed and dedicated to any type of religion the men they are interested in follows. They can go further to join a religious organisation and show commitment by joining an important unit and participating in any of the religious organisations activities.
These women will attend every single religious activity and act holy. The moment she gets you to marry her, the holiness disappears and their true colour surfaces.
