Hurt & Confused

Dear Mr. Sugar, I found out my boyfriend was in a long distance relationship with another lady while (they have been dating for much longer than we have) we were dating.

Lights...Camera...Action!

Entertainment at Nigerian weddings has been taken to a whole new level, you think it, and someone has done it. Tuface, Dbanj, Shank, Joe, K-CI and Jojo are all just a few artists that have graced Nigerian weddings in recent times.

So what happens if you don't have R-Kelly kind of money? Think outside the box, traditional dancers, cultural plays, a group thriller dance performed by the wedding party (I swear I'm not making this stuff up...see video below). There was even a Nigerian wedding were the bride serenaded the groom (please do not try this if you do not have a voice).

Wedding Diaries: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Don't know why I like to relate my life to movies; I guess there's always a movie that describes my gist. So have you ever seen the movie 'Guess who's coming to dinner' or the recent remake 'Guess Who' with Bernie Mac {Rest His Soul} and Ashton Kutcher, well if you have not seen it, I advice you to close this gist, go and watch the movie then come back…honestly it's the only way you are going to truly grasp what am about to tell you.

This Year? Next Year? Sometime in the Future..

Dear Mr. Sugar, My boyfriend and I (to my knowledge at least) want to get married to each other. We both are somewhat financially secure, so day to day living as a married couple shouldn't be much of a struggle. He says he wants to get married 'earliest next year December' mind you we had this conversation in March. I don't see what's going to change between now and December so I don't see why we should wait that long if nothing significant is changing between now and then and we both feel strongly about each other.

Mr and Mrs 'Head'

Hi Mr. Sugar, My boyfriend and I continually have this argument about who the 'head' of the family is. I don't think there's a 'head' per se; I feel that spouses should be partners who fulfill different roles in their relationship. With no one role being important than the next. Both parties should be able to go to each other for advice I don't like this idea of one person having the final say for the family. He on the other hand thinks this is all just 'feminist BS'. Are we heading for disaster?

- Mrs. 'Head'
