This article is imported directly from the Daily Nation (Wednesday May 6, 2009) with no alterations whatsoever. It's from a 'distressed' woman seeking 'advice'...

I've been in a relationship for two years with a man two years my junior. Despite being hardworking, he has not been luck in finding a job. I have a job that meets most of my needs. While gae has never been an issue for me, his siblings feel am too old for him and have never accepted me as a potential wife for their brother. On the other hand, I have friends who judge his financial status and feel I dont have a future with a financially unstable man. We've not had it easy with people around us trying to separate and discourage us, but we have endured it all. He has met my family and they love him and even invite him over for family events occassionally.
We love each other and would like to settle down. Although he has not officially asked me to marry him, he has mentioned severely that his intetions are to do so once he is financially stable. The problem is that I will be 31 by the end of this year and feel that time is not on my side. For two years, his financial status has been almost zero. As much as I want to be with him, I can't help but wonder if I have a bright future with a man rent I sometimes have to pay because he has no money to do so.
Could my friends be right that am wasting my time with a man who has nothing to offer. What if his financial situation does not change and I have to bear the entire financial burden when we finally settle down or, worse, I lose my job? Who will cater for us if he is not lucky by then? Am I making a grand mistake by waiting to marry this man?

I won't even comment on this...

Sucks to be always right

An anomaly is something that does not confirm to established and proven theories of science. People through and through are basically all the same until you meet one who seems like an anomaly. Seriously, they seem to defy every theory you might have and just as you begin to think that after all you have found you much sort after anomaly, they just have to go and prove you right(that there are no anomalies. They are all the same, one way or another.)

Disclaimer:I don't claim to be different. As a matter of fact, i more or less am the pig all men are made out to be.
