Here are the tricks that men use to trap naive women into these bogus marriages.

College students live together all the time and marriage only flirts in their mind. While women are loyal and take this live together arrangement seriously, the man doesn’t. He keeps chatting with his ex on WhatsApp, takes some new catch out for lunch and before you know it he’s complaining about this woman. He lies that the woman is clingy and wants to trap him with marriage.
2. Let’s have a baby
Men know that women who love them will not hesitate to have a baby with them. They know how showing interest in fatherhood knocks many women off their feet. To naive women, they interpret it as a green card to marriage. Many forget that a man who hasn’t married you legally and is not committed to stay can walk away at any time. With a baby, many women are trapped and start reciting exhausted tales like” I am staying because of the kids”.

You can decide to stay imagining you are loved. You will choke to know that this man introduces every Jane, Jill and Linda to his family.
4. Weddings are expensive

5. Over dependent on his woman
These are men who act like without you, they will drop dead. Greenlight! It’s a come we stay alert. They can’t wash their clothes and press them unless you come over or you call mama nguo.
