And how did Forbidden Dance story come about?

The soaring divorce rates in today’s world got me concerned.

I sat staring out of my bedroom window one bright spring afternoon. Across the road, a woman stormed out of a house, got into the car and a man in a white bathrobe was close on her heels. She did not wait to listen to him. I just imagined they were married and having problems. And so I got inspired to write a story about Alero and Kyle.

There are so many women in Alero's shoes who have given up hope on enjoying a happy marriage. And I wanted to focus on their situation. 

Stella, which of the characters in Forbidden Dance do you like most and why?

By a twist of fate, I love Zane Abdul, Alero's (heroine) admirer. For the first time, I have not fallen in love with the lead characters.

Zane Abdul
Zane is of Moroccan descent, a decent man with great personality and passion who's fiercely protective of the woman he loves. A man after my heart. I'm inspired to write Zane's story in new book, titled YEARNING HEARTS by a reader named, Nicole Guerrero.

So, is there any part of you or your experience in Forbidden Dance?

Lol! Yes, I have experience in counselling married people. It was great to slip in the counselling experience when one of the characters went through a difficult time in their marriage.

Also, in spite of everything Alero went through in her marriage, she was still mindful of her parents retribution. In my life, I always have it at the back of my mind that I must not do anything to smear my parents' name.

Stella, what do you hope readers will get out of reading Forbidden Dance?

Forbidden Dance was written in the hope that many women who are on the verge of divorce would reconsider, and gave their marriage another shot. Hope must be kept alive always.

 
Please share a quote from Forbidden Dance with our readers.

“Alero, I want to hold you in my arms and dance with you on my bed.” by Zane Abdul.

12 #Marriage Tips for #Brides #Wives #Daughters


Welcome to Advice Bench


Today's post was borrowed from a friend's Facebook page. Edyth Obasohan Idehen graciously agreed for me to share this sound advice for women.

1. The wife that wins all arguments with her husband is not wise. The home is not a law
court.

2. The wife that uses sex as a weapon in the home - placing embargo, going to bed in jeans shorts and trousers - lacks wisdom.

3. The wife that uses the modern trends and laws of "women's rights" to insult or ridicule her husband, simply makes a fool of herself.

4. A woman that makes her home devoid of peace through bickering, nagging and quarrels needs help.

A man should be eager to run away from office to be at home, for that should be the safest and closest place on earth for him.

5. Modern-day equality in marriage does not mean competition, It simply means partnership.

Taking advantage of such equality to turn around and become the defacto head of the home and oppress the man is tantamount to playing with fire.

If you destroy your home, soon you will be the boss of an empty home.

6. A wise wife makes the man feel so good that he assumes that he is the head.

Once he gets that feeling, the woman gently wields her power and the head actually turns to wherever the neck wants without a protest.

7. A wife that does not pull herself away from friends' influence and advice or even from the control of her mother and father will have herself to blame.

8. When a man is looking for a wife, he bypasses women of different shapes and sizes to choose a wife.

But soon after childbirth, many women hide under the excuse of childbirth to let go of themselves.

Many stop bothering about their looks, shape, dressing, etc. Within 5 years of marriage, people start wondering if the wife is the man's aunt, even though she is 7 years younger.

Her defence is that if he truly loves her, he should love her the way she is but when looking for a wife, he saw people like the present YOU and ignored them and settled for the former YOU.

Today, you go to bed smelling of onions.

You go to bed wearing grandmothers' clothes.

Why are you playing with your marriage?

Love is not about looks - we know But looks enhances love and marriage. There is a difference between someone disfiguring herself and the person being disfigured by an accident.

Please don't be complacent. As hard as it may be, work on looking like you were when he first saw you and began the chase.

9. If every night you are tired, sleepy, sore, down with headache or fever, "not in the mood," you are a joker, a serious comedian!

10. If your children suddenly become more important to you than your husband, you need prayers.

11. If you assume that as the woman, only you need to be pampered and fussed over while the man is a stone that has no emotions, you need to be pitied.

12. A woman that has the mind of a wife does not excite her husband. Wives are usually complacent and presumptuous.

A wife must strive to have the mind of a girlfriend.

A girlfriend is always nicer, sweeter, more loving and always thinking of ways to wow her sweetheart; a girlfriend does not try to win all arguments, does not call the man a "useless man", is not careless about her looks or dressing, always smiles and laughs with the man, sends the man sweet messages and calls, etc. Are you your husband's girlfriend in word and in deed?

Lastly, do not inform me of your quarrels, I didn't you together. God did. Go and inform him and he will sort you out.

#Marrying into Wealth? #Beware #Enough #Movie


Welcome to Advice Bench
 



Over the weekend, I watched an American thriller; ENOUGH with my children. It was so heartfelt I decided to blog about it.

Enough is a movie about a beautiful waitress, called Slim (played by Jennifer Lopez) whose father walked out when she was two, and she got swept off her feet by a rich man who said she was safe with him. Years later in their happy marriage, she found out he had another woman. Her discovery led to a string of physical abuses until she learnt to fight back.


In the movie, Enough, Slim's husband told her she had to make sacrifices because of the lifestyle he provided. He said, 'I make the money around here, so I make the rules. I don't have to sneak around no more. I can just tell you, I'm going over to the other woman'.

My Wish

When I was twenty-five years old (I'm forty-three now) I prayed to God for a special man to be my husband. I told my colleagues and sister that I would never marry a man who was already wealthy.


Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku on Valentine's Day
My decision and conviction was based on three simple reasons.

1. I wanted to marry for love.

And I believe rich men don't have the time or patience to love their wives. They love with their money - buying gifts, flying you on holidays - and not their hearts. In your absence, they fly in their mistress. They have no time to sit, chat and laugh about simple non-money making things with their wives.

Better to marry a man who had little or nothing, so we can grow together, earn together, learn to appreciate simple gifts of life, share laughs, know lack and abundance together. 

2. Wealthy men treat their possessions better than they treat their wives.

When the man says jump, the wife asks, how high. No questions asked. Do I look like a dumb woman? I love to ask questions, to argue a bit, to participate in decision making,  and to be treated with respect in the way he speaks to me. I don't want to marry a dictator. Wealth switch many men into dictators. And their wives live in FEAR. 

3. You have to put up with a lot of hurtful rubbish.

I was a daddy's girl. I got everything I asked for as a young child, although, I made reasonable demands. My dad showed me true love and I admired and still admire the way he  loves my mum. He touches and kisses her all the time. My parent's marriage is my definition of love. It was what I desired. My parents have been married for forty-five years. Thank God.

Many years ago, I met a woman through her wealthy husband. She told me she married her husband for money because she did not want to work. After two children, she was full of regret. Her husband's wealth had dwindled even if he did not admit it. At Christmas time, he offered money to his business partners wives to keep up appearances, to his wife and children, he gave nothing. She wondered about her decision to marry for wealth.

Yet, her 'wealthy' husband still made passes at other women.

My Experience

Almost Sixteen years ago, I married my special man. Gorgeous and talented. Most importantly, he's a Christian with a golden heart. The man of my dreams, a man we started out together in a rented flat. We even sat on the floor holding hands. He had no car. I owned a car. I taught him how to drive.

Seven years after we got married, he bought me a Toyota SUV.

Years later, we built a beautiful house together. We are now blessed with two teenage children. Almost eight years ago, we left Nigeria and relocated to London together with our children.

Me & My heartthrob
Till today, we still hold hands, he kisses me all the time, he treats me like a Princess, defends me with everything he has. He says I'm beautiful and the best thing that happened to him. In sickness, he was there for me. He tells me he loves me several times a day. When he was indebted, I was there for him. When he's sad, I encourage him. He tells me to be the best I can be. I love him so much every day. He's my inspiration for writing romance novels. Many of my heroes have a bit of my husband in each of them.
I love my imperfect marriage and I would not change anything about it.

Dreams come true. God gave me my dream husband and for that, I'm eternally grateful.

I pray your marriage is a blessing too even if it isn't perfect. No marriage is perfect. Enjoy.
