#MarriageChronicles 05: Nudes On The Streets
Hellurr… So it’s Thursday and we’re closer to the weekend than we were yesterday!! Great news yes?? It’s also another #marriagechronicles epistle and I’m baring all the nudes on the streets today. Nudes in my heart that is. Just before we go on, you know that song Bunibe I talked about in one of my earlier posts? The video is out here and I must say, it’s good to have Obiwon back.
If I may ask, how many of us have nude pictures of us or have ever taken nudes before?? Hmm…I didn’t expect you to answer but look at this. Yesterday I came across a couple’s account on Instagram. I’d rather not mention for privacy reasons but they had semi nude pictures of them all over their wall. Now I don’t know what they’re trying to promote with the nudes especially as I’m not aware of any porn Nollywood movies. I guess as my friend said, they are simply spicing up their marriage.
I don’t have anything against spicing up your marriage. In fact, it’s possible I could take loads of nudes with my husband when the time comes but putting it all out on the streets?? Hmm. The heart of man is desperately wicked, so it’s possible that half of their following may not really like them or wish them well. That’s pretty normal. My reservations now is with giving such wide room for enemies to fester and for unnecessary temptation to walk in.
I’m not going to stand here and say staying faithful is easy. Oh no it’s not! Staying committed to one man/woman for the rest of your life is pure work. Fidelity is a choice just as love is a choice. And it takes work all day, every day, to keep at this. My question however is, how does posting nudes on the streets of social media help stay that committed??
Some couples could do it and get away with it, some are that secure in themselves to litter nudes all over the place and that’s cute. But how far is too far? What happens if one smooth talking, Mercedes driving, ‘Christian looking’, sensitive and caring money bag, comes around the corner and fixes his gaze on the wife? Maybe at a time when you both just had a little quarrel, and she decides to ‘talk’ to this brother? After all Eve was quite happy naked, when the serpent came. Or maybe when one die-hard, fair-skinned, tall and pretty sister latches on the husband in the guise of a friendly sheep?? No I don’t pray for that guys. As a matter of fact, I’m an optimist. But when the bible says flee all appearance of evil, I can’t agree more. I honestly feel there’s no need to expose your self to such harsh temptations. But then, what do I know?
I really want to hear your thoughts especially from the married folks. How far is too far with posting nudes on the streets? Please do drop a comment below and get your friends to do same. You know I love to read from you.
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Shh…Friday is coming!
*hugs and kisses*
Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better
