At times, men have difficulty understanding the woman they love. When preparing for marriage, here are some things to know to save yourself from a post “I do” shock.
1. Girls fart too
Sometimes we even sweat and smell. This one comes straight from my mother, who is the sweetest and seemingly least gross person you will ever meet.
2. We don’t understand ourselves
We are constantly changing; it’s in our nature as human beings and as women. So you can’t expect the woman you marry to stay the same exact person for the next 50 years. That would be boring anyway.
3. Our period can make us monstrous
It may make us mean, or it might not affect us at all. But here’s a hint: Don’t ever blame anything on it, and don’t suggest we “take something” for it. That’s just not going to go over well.
4. We expect you to be a mind reader sometimes
So ask how we’re feeling. Ask how our day went, and if our sister really ended up dating that one guy. Things like this will make us feel that you not only notice the little details, but care about them as well.
5. When we say that we’re sorry, we are
Help build us up, not tear us down, and we’ll do the same.
6. Women’s haircuts are waaaay more expensive than yours
Sometimes our clothes are, too. Don’t expect to understand why. We’ll try to explain it to you, and some men might understand, while some might not. We don’t like it either!
7. We will not always speak the same language
And I’m not talking about English vs. Finnish here. I’m referring to Love Languages. There’s a whole book about it. Trying to be affectionate in a language someone doesn’t speak isn’t going to get a message across very well. So it’s well worth it to learn how we want to be given love and affection.
8. When we compliment you, we mean it!
Pay attention. One of my pet peeves is when my husband is distracted when I tell him something meaningful and I really want him to hear it. Those little somethings mean your woman loves you.
9. We will probably deal with money differently than you
Everyone budgets differently. Maybe one of you is more tight with money. This will be an issue that is wise to address sooner rather than later. Lay it all out on the table.
10. We will love you even when you are having a bad day
Everyone has weaknesses and struggles, and admitting them is hard. It is not a weak person who apologizes and forgives; that is a sign of strength. If you’ve chosen the right woman, she’ll pick you back up when you are down.
To not disenchant anyone from getting married, I do think women are a very lovely and agreeable half of our race. And as Oscar Wilde once said, “Women are made to be loved, not understood.”

Healthcare Workers To Receive Coca-Cola-Funded PPEs From Nigerian Red Cross
Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease in Nigeria, our healthcare workers have continued to lead the charge against the disease. As the number of recorded COVID-19 cases in Nigeria began to increase, these healthcare workers rose to the challenge and fought tirelessly to protect the lives of Nigerians impacted by the disease.
Considering the risks these healthcare workers face, there is a crucial need for adequate protective equipment for these brave frontline workers.
Coca-Cola is excited that over 400,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) procured to support the intervention efforts of the Nigerian Government and other key stakeholders to fight the COVID 19 pandemic have arrived. We do believe that this will to provide succor to our healthcare workers on the frontlines
These PPEs comprise N95 respirators, surgical masks, examination gloves, face shields, medical gowns, no-touch thermometers, disposable aprons, heavy-duty rubber gloves, rubber boots, basic masks, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizers.
Since the first confirmed case of the disease in Nigeria reported in February, over 800 healthcare workers have contracted the disease. While Nigerians are encouraged to stay home where possible and practice social distancing, these healthcare workers are needed across the country in the continued fight against the disease.
This donation forms part of The Coca-Cola Foundation’s COVID-19 relief interventions in Nigeria. The Coca-Cola Foundation has provided $2.5m in grant to IFRC who seeks to directly impact the lives of 1.4 million people in Nigeria and across other countries in West and Central Africa under this partnership.
Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
