Readers Write: Seeking A Wife

I know this is not necessarily the “right” place to make such request. However, I am compelled to do so. I go by the name Ihekuna Chimezie Benedict. I am 33 years of age and still single, born and bred in Lagos, Nigeria, I am a published author (poet, novelist, essayist) and a voice-over actor.

Traveling the length and breadth of Nigeria in search of a woman to settle down with has been topsy-turvy for me. I have encountered difficulties trying to convince materialistically-driven Nigerian women (those whom I have met so far—over seventeen of them). They are just taking me for granted! I am not getting any younger.

Therefore, I ask if you could please showcase this write-up as someone seeking a woman to marry.

Your response will be appreciated.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Ben

Dear Mr. Ben,

You’re right about one thing, this probably isn’t the best place to look for a wife, but maybe we can guide you in the right direction.

You seem like a well-established man with a bright future. It’s unfortunate you haven’t had any luck in the love department. However, don’t be fooled, materialistically driven individuals are not exclusive to just Nigerian women; there are money grubbers everywhere in the world.

If you’re determined to marry an Icelandic woman, maybe try moving here, download Tinder and see what happens. If you’ve heard anything about the Icelandic government paying foreigners to marry Icelandic women, we’re here to tell you it’s just a rumor.

Good luck with your search!
