A while back, someone asked me this question, while reading one of my story series. I said I would probably respond via my Reader Questions series…and I feel it’s high time I oblige. It’s not an easy question to answer. It is very exposing, and it is also of critical importance for those who might want to learn from my experience.
First of all, I must say that my life as a single was SHORT!!! I got married early. And for the wrong reasons. Does that phase of my life matter? I believe it does, though I don’t think a lot of people will be able to relate to my experience. I was and I am still a very weird person!
But, before I turned 21 years old, I was single. And I was married 3 days after. So we are really talking about five years of singleness, if we want to start from the legal age that one can have sex (being 16 in most lands).
So the year is 1998… I had just returned home from a brief stay in a boarding school in the UK, to complete my secondary education in Atlantic Hall. At the time, I wasn’t born again…
