Why do African men go to home to find their bride?

I was reading some articles at work and I came across a website about Nigerians in America. One of the many articles on the site is about the title of this post.

This is the comment I left:

The average African man is a provider and protector. He desires to have a wife that is caring and nurturing. Now, that is something my fellow Nigerian-American ladies don't have. There is no equality in gender. Men are men for a reason, so are the women as well. Once, you start to make a man feel less than he is, you cripple him. A man, always want to feel like a man. That does not mean, he should be a dictator. Most women in the diaspora have been brainwashed about independence and strong. I use a different word, "interdependent" - knowing when to be dependent and when to be independent.

African ladies in UK and US, start making the men around you feel like a man and they'll not go to Africa to get married. African men in UK and US, start treating your sisters with respect. It's no wonder I have enough suitors. LOL. Just my two-cents.

Before the women think I am some gullible girl that just arrived from Africa, better recognize that I got more education than most of you, but I still understand what my roles are in a marriage. Don't get it twisted.

I think the article was written in 2005. Here is the link to the article.

Happy reading. Share your comments and opinion on this very interesting topic.

Not new to the blog world. Been reading for a long while now. Left a couple of comments on some blogs.

Just want to document things about my life. I find it a great pleasure, when I read old letters or diaries. It is always interesting reading about some things we did few years ago. Now though, they seem kinda weird to us. We sometimes don't even believe we did or said those things. This is what I intend to use this space for.

Have fun reading.
