There is this guy that proposed marriage to me who initially was anxious for me to meet with his mother. Unfortunately, she was of town within that period.

While in school and writing my final examinations, he would call me to come and cook for him. I didn't mind since we were planning to spend the rest of our lives together. At a time I was really becoming worried about his plans for me since we spend most of our time holed in the house.

Finally, his mother came back and we went to see her. It didn't go as I expected as she showed so much antagonism towards me. She went as far as making me understand that education in her opinion isn't the ultimate or guarantee that I will end up becoming her daughter-in-law.

She went further to tell me that I should go in search for a job in the civil service if I truly wanted to be her son's wife. She said so many things, issued concealed threats as if she was the one who sent me to school.

She also went on to say that a marriage between me and her son may not work since we come from different towns.

To make matters worse, my boyfriend said he won't walk down the aisle in any church; that he would only settle for the traditional marriage ceremony.

He also said that, until I get a job, I must be on contraceptive.

I'm tired of this relationship. I have stopped calling him as I used to. I'm extremely tired and want to end it all. Please advice me.

I'm 25 while he is 32.

Worried Lady.
