We all know that the dream of a typical African Parent is to see their Grand-Children. That indirectly implies that you as their Child would get married, whether you like it or not. Don’t even think of having Children out of wedlock, that’s even a worse sin. Suffice to say, you must bear them Grand-Children and you must do this within the ambits of a legally recognized union called Marriage.
So I asked people How would your Mum react if you told her you’re never getting Married?
You won’t believe the answers I got. Let’s go through some of them
According to Naija Boy, he would be disowned
You are no son of mine.. Shame, shame, shame… pic.twitter.com/005GI04bb1

That was all I said

She will quietly give me her laptop and in the calmest manner ask me to teach her how to download grand children. 😂😂

So yea, here are some of the reactions I got. It may seem funny, but please don’t ever joke about this especially with your Mum. Some may even faint before you’re done.
