I was in a public transit yesterday, when an advanced lady made a shocking statement, “marriage is not an achievement”.

I was taught to respect people’s decision but let me beg you for this, don’t say that marriage isn’t an achievement because you haven’t found a man yet or because your man isn’t loving you right.

It’s very true that you can acquire everything in life & decide not to get married, nobody is against that but I just hope that you don’t cry & question God behind closed doors.
Listen, everything you acquire in this life be it intellectually, physically, socially, mentally, financially & spiritually is an achievement, no matter how little it might seem but see this illustration:

You can acquire an iPhone 11 but without a charger it becomes useless.
For it to function, you need to always power it & for you to power it, you need a charger.

Again, any day it’s not powered the battery may not serve you. This explains the fact that as a woman, you can acquire everything in life but marriage is the crown of all your achievements, the truth may taste bitter.

    An arranged marriage does not seem to be much of an achievement if the bride has no say in who she weds. There must a mutual basis to qualify in this way in my opinion.
