I Can’t Leave My Husband

They say that the script goes like this. Stage one, you get married. Stage two, you are happy and even believe that marriage is the best thing you could ever have done with your life. Stage three, you have babies. Those adorable cute angels. Stage four, love fizzles out and your husband starts cheating on you. Or you start cheating […]

Love For Fools

You warned me. And I’ve been thinking about you. You said, this is not the man you want to love. This is not the man you want to announce to the world loves you. This is not the man you want to take home to mum and dad. This is not the man you want to have a child with. […]
