Marriage Fuelled by Monetary Desires

Written by: Rachael Kostelec and Myracle Damians

Sitting close to her in church, he looked focused on what the preacher was saying. Suddenly, Helena’s phone beeped…It was a text message. She stretched for her phone beside her to see what it was this time.

The number one suspect was MTN and their annoying “love messages”. Raising the phone, she must have pressed 'OK' when the phone slipped off his hands onto Tayo’s body.

Immediately, As a nice guy he always wants to seem, Tayo got hold of the big-screened phone and had a sharp sweeping glance at the message on the phone, He couldn’t believe it. It was GTB’s alert and the amount was#8,350,503.00…Whaaattt?

Considering how fast Tayo gave her back the phone, Helena never suspected he saw it. Even if he saw it, she wouldn’t mind.

Believe me.

At the end of the service, Tayo “marked” Helena so closely and managed to start a conversation. It was swift, he got her number and everything started happening fast. You don’t meet this opportunity every day, he said to himself.

A babe with 8million in her account? Chineke Lekwe (God See)!!!
3 weeks after, Tayo shocked Helena with a marriage proposal. Helena was a church sister. She doesn’t believe in dating. She believes that the man that would marry her should come straight up with a proposal.

Tayo has fitted into her marriage fantasy model. “Oh Tayo must be a Godly man” she reasoned… He didn’t even ask for her to come visit his house…Unlike other guys, he didn’t ask for sex. Now, he proposed? What a lucky girl Helena believed she was.

Piam… Piam… Piam… Tayo and his people had come for the introduction and mirage rite requirements. Now, they have the list. It was not that expensive. He hustled to raise some cash and piam! They had done the marital rites.

What a sharp guy!!!

He did his best to avoid letting Helena know that her money was the main attraction why “everything” was happening, so he never asked her about it. . On that same night, while they were in the room enjoying themselves, Helena’s phone beeped again.

Another text message. Helena pressed some buttons Lo and behold, it was the same alert again. This time around, the amount has risen to 15million naira. Helena hissed…Tayo jumped up from the bed wondering why his new found magnate wife would hiss like that.

As he glanced through the phone once again, and didn’t know when he shouted “Woooowwww”.

But Helena would need his help; “Darling, please I’m tired of this text message that is always putting me in trouble. My aunty that is in Canada opened an account using my phone number as the contact number a day before she travelled. She did it on emergency. 

But now, I want to inform the bank to remove my phone number from that account before armed robbers would see this alert in my phone and attack me.

On hearing this, Tayo froze in shock with his mouth and eyes wide agape, as he couldn’t believe what he just heard. He couldn't seem to breathe well again...“EEEeeeeeehhhhhhH???” Was the only loud scream that he could utter.

“Baby’m… Is anything the matter”… Asked Helena who was now surprised…
Tayo left the room, went to the verandah and sat on a wooden bench wondering what he has gotten himself into. 

Going into marriage because of money is actually not a good reason he said to himself as he stared in the direction of the room where his wife Helena was lost in thoughts.

Moral Lessons – Reasons you should not marry because of Money
The Internet is flooded with articles telling you why you should find a guy with tons of cash and try to marry for money, and next to none on why you shouldn’t. Ignore all of this “smart women marry for money” bullshit and marry for love, or hell, don’t get married at all. 
Here are 11 reasons marrying Mr. or Mrs. Moneybags is never a good idea:

1. BECAUSE SMART WOMEN DON’T HAVE TO MARRY FOR MONEY.
The Internet lied to you. Smart women don’t marry for money because they don’t have to marry for money. Smart women know how to make their own money and feel so much better about themselves for making it.

2. IT WON’T BUY YOU HAPPINESS.
Sure, money can buy you a fabulous vacation and that fabulous vacation will make you happy, but every vacation comes to and end.

3. IT WON’T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS.
Jay Z still has 99 of them and he has more money than any guy you’re going to get to marry you.

4. IT MIGHT NOT LAST.
Sure, they say the rich keep getting richer, but sometimes the rich go broke. Nicholas Cage seemed tolerable when he had a $150 million dollar fortune, but not so much when he had to file Chapter 7.

5. IT WILL TRAP YOU.
Money is the number one reason people stay in a loveless marriage, especially if it’s the reason they got into it in the first place. Most people with money want to protect their assets with iron clad prenups, so don’t plan on walking away unless you plan on walking away broke.

6. PEOPLE WITH MONEY STILL FIGHT ABOUT MONEY.
Whether you’re fighting over hundreds or hundreds of thousands, money will always be a point of contention.

7. LOVE IS PRICELESS.
There’s no doubt that it’s corny, but if you only marry for money, you’ll never know what Taylor Swift is singing about. She’s talking about a blank space, not a blank check, people.

8. BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT THAT CYNICAL… YET.
Maybe after your first marriage ends in a nasty divorce and you no longer believe in love, but for now, there’s still hope.

9. BECAUSE NOTHING IS FREE.
You might not have to ever work another day in your life, but nothing in this life comes for free. You’ll have to do SOMETHING to remain on the gravy train, and good luck blowing someone you aren’t even remotely attracted to.

10. BECAUSE YOU CAN’T BE BOUGHT.
Your integrity is worth way more than the millions he has in the bank.

11. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO FEEL THIS WAY ARE UNHAPPY.
Any married person who suggests you marry for money is unhappily married. You should feel bad for them, not take their advice.
