Iranian couple arrested for romantic marriage proposal


Most of us swoon, and cheer when we see a man get down on one knee in public to propose to the love of his life.

But for one couple in Iran, their romantic moment was ruined after they were arrested for a public display of affection.

What is considered the perfect moment went down at a shopping mall, in Tehran.

The footage, which captures the moment at which a young man places a ring on the finger of his girlfriend at a shopping mall in Arak, Tehran, Iran, was condemned by Iranian authorities as it contradicted the country’s Islamic doctrines.


The couple, who were later arrested by police for breaking the country’s laws on public decency, have since been released on bail.

During the viral clip, the unnamed man stands inside a ring of flower petals shaped like a heart as his girlfriend stares at him and gasps with excitement.

The Iranian woman, who is stood next to red and white balloons laid out on the ground, then says ‘yes’ to the marriage proposal as her ecstatic boyfriend slips the ring onto her finger.

The happy couple then embrace each other as excited spectators cheer and clap at their romantic union.

However soon after the video was posted online and went viral, the couple were taken in by the police for breaking Iran’s strict Islamic code.

Arak deputy police chief Mostafa Norouzi later told the Shahrvand daily that the  young couple’s ‘offense is very clear and there is no need for explanation’.

He added that it was unacceptable for the couple ‘to do whatever is common in other places of the world and disregard mores, culture and religion’.

How to pamper your husband in 12 easy ways


If you were to be honest with yourself, how would you rate your relationship on a scale of one to ten?

We were having a conversation between men and women about this topic in the office and someone shared this tweet that the fellas said was the realest sh*t for men.

how to treat a man tweet(1)(1)

Here are simple things all girls can do to keep the fire burning, as published on pairedlife.com.

1. You can never be too busy to whisper sweet nothings to him. A text a day or better yet a call to check up on him will prove how crazy you are abut him.

2. We all have reasons why we fell in love with and eventually married bae. Put this down in writing and share the list with him. Let him fall in love with you all over again by reading this list to him.

3.  When you were dating, you considered yourselves bestfriends. Be THAT BEST FRIEND you were. Remember how you would drop at a heartbeat whatever you were doing to be with him? Yup, that’s what I’m talking about.

He needs you to be there to listen, Ladies also have a problem with men needing space. Don’t catch a feeling if he wants to be left alone. Be compassionate.

4. Remember back when you made an effort to dress up for him? Be pretty for him. Flaunt your femininity. Dress in clothes he wants you to wear at home. Who knows where this will lead?

5. Pay attention to his needs. Most of us women are guilty of putting our children’s needs first, completely forgetting our husbands. So when this happens what is he supposed to do? Make a conscious effort to take care of your husband and the little things he needs.

6. On weekends when we all have time, wake up earlier and make him that special breakfast. On weekends we are not in a rush to beat traffic. It’s true the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

7.  Tell his parents about how good a man your husband is. Praise them for raising him the way they did. This will not only please your husband, it will create a bond between you and his family.

8. Make time for date nights. It is important to keep the romance alive. If this is not possible, find time at home to be alone. Listen to a romantic song together, or just be with each other and be lovers again, when the kids are asleep.

9. ABSOLUTELY STOP whining. Find ways to talk to your husband about your needs without making it sound like you are complaining. Do not make your husband feel inadequate with your grievances, criticism and fault finding.

10. When he makes a mistake or gets insecure about losing his hair, say kind words of encouragement and reassurance. Declare your devotion all over again. Remind him you married him (your wedding vows will come in handy here).

11.  Pray with your husband especially when he is worried about something. He needs to know you are there for him.

12. Find reasons to be together. Run errands with him. Take him to the carwash, or to see the latest gadgets. He doesn’t really need you, but will appreciate the company.


10 signals women send when they find a man attractive


Learn these subconscious body language cues and you might come closer to finding out whether the woman of your dreams is in love with you, too…

Relationship expert Tracy Cox spoke to Dailymail.

1. She flashes her eyebrows at you 

When we first see someone we’re attracted to, our eyebrows rise and fall in a small, rapid movement. If they fancy us back, they raise their eyebrows in return.

We’re not consciously aware of doing this rather bizarre Groucho Marx type gesture, but it’s supposedly the most instantly recognised non-verbal sign of friendly greeting in the world.

It helps us to attract friends and lovers because it makes us look more attractive by pulling the eyes open and allowing more light to reflect on the surface of eyes.

2. She is fidgeting with her clothes

If she’s adjusting her clothing or smoothing it (particularly over your hips), she’s preening – making sure she looks your best.

Another dead giveaway: looking down to see how many buttons she’s got undone (and emerging from the loo with a couple more open).

3. She’s flashing her wrists

It means she’s s3xually interested if she holds her wrist so it’s turned to face you.

Wrists are definite erogenous zones probably because back in the days when women wore neck to knee clothing, the wrist and ankles were the only flesh ever exposed in public.

4. Her hands keep moving into your space

We use our hands to signal interest by moving them closer to the object of our desire.

If she moves her hands across the invisible line that divides the table in two or into your personal space, she’s hinting she’s looking for more than just a friend.

5. She’s sitting with one leg tucked underneath her, so the inside of her thigh is exposed

If her head and body also point towards you, you should consider himself wanted.

She’s revealing quite an intimate part of her body: one you’d normally only see during sex.

6. She’s crossed her legs

The leg-cross (twining one leg around so her foot crosses behind her calf and also the ankle) is a potent, yet polite, sexual signal.Why?

Well for a start, it makes her legs look good because it presses the flesh to give the appearance of high muscle tone.

Which sends another subliminal message: our bodies show increased muscle tone when ready for sex as nerves and excitement make us tense and primed for performance.

7. She keeps on crossing and uncrossing them ever-so-s-l-o-w-l-y

The more a woman crosses and uncrosses her legs in front of a guy, the more interested she is in him.

She’s either subconsciously or deliberately trying to draw your attention to her legs and genital area.

8. She’s kicking one leg up and down, while crossed, or dangling a shoe from her toes

Either are strong, deliberate and obvious signs of sexual attraction.

Women will often cross their legs towards their object of desire and begin to slowly and seductively kick their foot up and down in a thrusting motion.

(If you need me to tell you why imitating thrusting is sexy, you seriously do need to get out more).

If she’s really, really keen, she’ll follow this up by slipping her foot in and out of her shoe (the old in-out-in-out thing again) or dangle the shoe from the tip of her toes (I’m undressing myself already/Wouldn’t you like these shoes off and under your bed?)

9. She’s touching her neck, mouth and lips a lot

It’s called autoerotic touching: touching yourself where you’d like someone to touch you.

As well as sending a powerful subliminal message (get your fingers over here!), it feels good! When we’re sexually aroused the blood pumps ferociously through the body, making nerve endings tingle and our skin much more sensitive to touch.

An even sexier version: she’s touching her mouth while looking at yours!

10. Whatever you do, she does

Nothing bonds people more instantly or effectively than mirroring someone’s behaviour.

We do it subconsciously when we like someone because we like people who are like us.

If someone’s doing what we’re doing, we feel they’re not only on the same level as us but also in the same mood we are.


How to spot a lie in a text message


To help identify some of the most common red flags of an untruthful text, Australian dating expert Louanne Ward has listed the nine top clues to look out for.

‘Spotting a liar is a lot easier when you are face to face because you can pick up their body language cues,’ she said.

‘One of the best tools you have is your gut feeling and intuition but whenever you are looking for a lie in a text message add these all together and see how many times they appear.’


‘These are answers like “I am not quite sure”, “it was probably”, “it might have been”, “maybe” and “some time around”,’ Louanne said.

‘If you asked someone “How is your day, do you want to catch up?” someone who is lying might say something like “I have a busy day ahead, not sure what time I will finish up I will probably just have an early night”.’ 


‘People do this because it’s very hard to tell one lie on top of another lie,’ Louanne said.

‘By creating a diversion they are moving away from the lie they have just told.’


‘You can see when somebody is replying, you can see the bubbles, so if you see if somebody is taking a long time it might be that they are distracted half way through but it could be that they are telling you a lie,’ Louanne said.


‘These are things like I “my”, “we” and “our”. They remove them because they don’t want to personalise the message too much,’ Louanne said.


‘If they do that and don’t answer the question, when they message next time that question will usually be avoided,’ Louanne said.


‘A liar might say something like “I’m not sure what time I am finishing up. My last client is a real talker but much rather be spending my day with you as you always make me happy”,’ Louanne said.

‘Don’t jump to conclusions but if it seems vague be wary.’


‘They do this to throw you off track,’ Louanne said.

‘A lie will sound something like this: “Tony and I decided to go for dinner and we were quite hungry so we found this place that had a $15 parmigiana. The parmigiana was good but they were really busy and it took a long time”.’


‘It is quite similar to the previous point but this time the answer is more relevant to the question asked,’ Louanne said.

‘When somebody over exaggerates and it’s a very short question that you ask and they are telling a really long story sometimes it is to cover up a lie.’


‘Qualifying statements include “if you must know”, “to be honest with you”, “it was actually” and “all I am saying is”,’ Louanne said.

‘When somebody has to qualify their words that’s something to look out for.’


9 things you need to do after he proposes


Sauti Sol Biens girlfriend Chiki certainly had an eventful night after the singer got down on one knee and proposed to her.

So girls, now that he has popped the question, and you whole heartedly accepted Hooray!

Here’s what you need to do next:

!. Call your mum first, then call all your relatives. They can finally stop asking you ‘utaoa lini’?

2. DaydreamALOT. Think lovingly about the proposal and all the other stuff you want to do for your big day.

3. Celebrate the moment. You and bae can go on a night out, and just sip to the marriage proposal, just the two of you. Make sure your plans for the romantic night include telling him sweet nothings.

4. Agree on a budget for your nuptials. This also includes asking your respective parents how much should be allocated for the wedding.

5. Get your rings sized. If you are going for some expensive rings, don’t forget to insure them. These Nairobi streets are cruel.

6. Set a date, even if you have to move things around. That way you will be closer to your dream wedding.

7. Get a wedding planner or if you are not a fan of this, immediately plan who will be in your wedding committee.

8. Sit down and agree on how many guests you want. Although sometimes this is difficult as some guests are notorious and turn up with five other uninvited people.

9. If you have been dreaming of a marriage proposal now is the time to set aside some coin for the day. You also need to chip in, don’t wait for your dude and parents to do everything for you.

So girls, you are now set with these nine things. Congratulations on the proposal.

What you can learn from a short failed marriage


Everyone is talking about Betty Kyallo following the surprise wedding by her ex Dennis Okari.

The two were in a  short marriage that ended in divorce and claims of infidelity among other issues.

She has however revealed she is ok, and happy he has moved on to someone else.

Counsellor and s3x therapist Julia Cole says that it’s more likely for victims of short, failed marriages to be able to make a clean break and move on.

Short marriages can teach these important lessons:

1. Acceptance of your own limitations, and the ability to question how you make judgements

‘Often, the decision to enter into these marriages is made in the ‘hot’ stage when the relationship is based on excitement and lust. This is a bad time to decide on a long-term commitment, yet many people who’ve been in a short-lived marriage do exactly that,’ says Julia. The lesson learned from rushing too hastily into a relationship is rarely forgotten.

2. Improved communication skills

In the early stages of a relationship, we’re wearing our rose-tinted specs. We put off talking about important issues, believing instead that love will find a way. ‘But those who’ve been through a starter marriage have learned the value of being able to talk in an honest way right from the beginning,’ says Julia. ‘They know it’s not enough to expect to live on love.’

3. Higher self-esteem

‘The whole business of going through a break-up and surviving it intact makes you feel great about yourself,’ says Julia. ‘You may never have thought you could handle being alone again, or finding somewhere new to live all on your own. Having done it, you have discovered something very important: that you can live in the world in a way you haven’t before.’

The humiliating things women married to mega rich men have to do


Society envies these women, who on the face of it seem to live a pampered life.

According to their stories, they live lives of poverty because their super rich husbands make them do ridiculous things to get money.

They live in the lap of luxury yet are given so little financial independence they can’t even buy themselves a cup of coffee.

Diana Parker, a partner at legal firm Withers says that economic cruelty is regularly coupled with ‘very controlling frightening behaviour which strips a woman of self-esteem’.

Diana recalls one particularly harrowing case of a woman who was regularly presented with a ‘menu’ listing sexual acts, each of which had a price tag, as her only means of accessing money.

‘There will be a significant number of your readers being abused economically who may be paraded on nights out in expensive diamond brooches, but have to justify every penny spent, on a sandwich or a coffee, while they are interrogated about who they were with when they bought it, ‘was it a girlfriend, or really a boyfriend?’.

‘And the men in these relationships will often have bought themselves a new Ferrari or returned from a weekend’s shooting.’

Vanessa Lloyd-Platt, whose firm represents women divorcing wealthy entrepreneurs, celebrities, MPs and even judges, is also all too familiar with financial abuse within marriages and often hears of wives being told they must perform sexual favours in return for cash or access to bank cards.

‘I’ve acted on behalf of wives who have been told by their wealthy husbands: “I’ll give you some money but you have to have sex with me tonight”, or who insisted their partners do something se3ually they wouldn’t normally want to do, to earn it,’ says Vanessa.

‘Clients tell me this makes them feel like prostitutes, it’s something they don’t even admit to their best friends.

‘We’ve also had cases where women have had to phone their husband’s secretary and say, “I’m going out and have no money, can you put some on my debit card?” and the secretary will interrogate them about what they need the money for. Later they know they will be asked to provide receipts to prove it.

‘Husbands will often spend huge amounts on these “trophy wives”, but that is only if they wear what they want them to wear, drive the exact car they want them to drive and go where they want them to go. They have no financial freedom.’

Vanessa recalls one penniless client, whose husband ran a huge multi-national, who was forced to borrow money from friends to buy regular underwear because he would only purchase se3y lingerie for her, but then locked it away in a safe when he wasn’t around, leaving her literally knickerless.

Another husband took his wife’s toothbrush and toothpaste when he went away on business and left no money for replacements.

Then there was the woman whose husband insisted she work for free in his business, but would refuse to pay the nanny, and the gardener who tended their perfectly manicured lawns, leaving her thoroughly humiliated when they asked her for their wages and she had no way of remunerating them.

 71 per cent of survivors of domestic abuse reported having been deprived of essentials, and the money to purchase them, while a survey in 2015

‘This husband would say ‘If you’re nice to me I’ll pay the nanny this week’,’ says Vanessa.

‘She hated the fact that when mums from her children’s expensive school invited her on nights out she would have to tell them she couldn’t go because she couldn’t afford it, and they would look at her incredulously, assuming she was just too stuck up to socialise with them. People’s perception of the wealthy is that they have wonderful lives, but money can often complicate relationships and they can be some of the unhappiest people on the planet.’


Man sends SMS to wife to collect daughters body after domestic quarrel


Conflict of passion that ended in the death of the two-year-old daughter of a couple in Nairobi’s Ruai suburb.

The man, 23, only named as Mwangi, and the woman, 22, had domestic disagreement from Wednesday last week. The quarrel was all about the woman’s use of social media.

Their landlady, Leah Wanjiru, said she heard the woman scream on Thursday night. She woke her husband and they rushed to the couple’s house to help.

“We got there and I held the man’s hand, pulled him out so I could ask him what was happening,” she said.

“He told me the woman has been on phone the whole of Wednesday night and Thursday, even in the night.”

When Mwangi confronted her, she got agitated and started fighting him. He fought back, prompting her to scream, Wanjiru told the Star.

Wanjiru said as she spoke to Mwangi, the woman suddenly hit him with a stone on the forehead, rupturing the tissue and causing heavy bleeding.

“After first aid, I advised him to record a statement with the police,” she said, adding that she also advised the couple to separate as they solved their conflict.

On Friday morning, Mwangi told her that the woman had taken off.

“The lady told her husband her brother-in-law wanted to rent her a better house somewhere else. She did not disclose where,” the landlady said.

Later in the day, the man sent a text message to the woman, asking her to go get her dead child in the house.

The woman returned in the evening and found the lifeless body of her daughter in their one room mabati house.

The child was strangled using a leso and her private part was swollen. The woman reported the incident to Ruai police station.

Wanjiru said the couple had been together for barely three months. They had moved into one of her rental houses on Wednesday last week and had been there for two days before the incident.

“I had not even known them. They moved in and paid me Sh800, pending Sh200 they owe me for the rent,” she said.

A police source at the station said they are investigating the matter – a crime of passion.

The man alleged to have killed the child is on the run.


Nandi man hacks wife to death at chief’s home and then commits suicide after domestic quarrel

A 38-year-old man from Nandi County hacked his wife to death using a panga before hanging himself, following a domestic quarrrel.

The man from Kapkatet village had seperated with the woman who had gone to  live at her uncle’s home near Ndalat three kilometers away.

The man lured the woman to a home near Ndalat and hacked her several times after which he fled and was found hanging on a tree at his parent’s home.

The woman was identified as Ednah Kurgat, a mother of three children and she had gone to live with the uncle Philip Songok, who is an Assistant Chief.

Residents said the two lovers had separated last year after a domestic quarrel and efforts to reconcile them had failed.

Emily Sawe, who is an aunt to the woman, witnessed the incident and narrated how she pleaded with the  man to spare the woman, but the assailant turned hostile.

“She slashed her several times on the head and other parts of the body as I pleaded but he went on and killed her”, said the aunt.

The man later jumped over the fence and disappeared into the bush after the attack.

Villagers later found the man’s body hanging on a tree at his father’s compound.

Sawe said the assailant who was hiding on the fence, jumped in the compound after the deceased came out of the house and started to cut her with a panga.

He said the attack was sudden and shocking.

“She was loudly pleading but he cut her on the hands and neck and head with a panga causing her to blead extensively after she fell down”, said Sawe.

The assailant did not utter any words during the attack.

Police were called to the scene where they found a jacket, a mobile phone and  bottle of Vodka alcohol left behind by the man.

Area MP Vincent Tuwei and Deputy County Commissioner Sammy Makhanu visited the scene and condemned the attack.

“We have very high incidents of domestic violence in this area and that is because of high consumption of alcohol and drugs among the couples” said Makhanu.

Tuwei and the administrator asked residents especially couples to involve elders  and church leaders in sorting out domestic quarrels.

Makhanu said they would enhance the fight against alcohol and drug abuse in the area which has also witnessed high levels of crime.

“Killing or violence is not a solution. We should use alternative ways of solving domestic issues like involving elders or church leaders”, said Tuwei.

Tuwei said youth were most affected by use of drugs and alcohol and many of them also engaged in crime and such violence to resolve issues.

The two bodies  were taken by police to a private mortuary at Kapkaren in Uasin Gishu County.

Woman stabs husband 35 times after he complained about her ‘mashakura’

A woman murdered her husband – stabbing him at least 35 times – because he criticised her cooking, say Russian law enforcement.

Slava Davydkin, 43, was killed after complaining there was not enough salt in a dish she served when guests came to their house in Penza region.

His wife Evgenia, 31, waited until he was asleep and stabbed him to death in front of the couple’s four-year-old child, say reports.

She later confessed to the killing using his angling knife – and is under house arrest.

The couple had quarrelled after the keen fisherman complained the dish she cooked was ‘bland’.

He claimed this meant she ‘did not love him’, it was reported.

The row continued after their guests – a couple – went to bed and the host hit his wife, she claimed.

She was provoked after the meal accompanied by alcohol, she told police.

After repeatedly knifing her sleeping husband, she woke the male guest and asked him to call an ambulance.

Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement: ‘During her interrogation, the accused explained that the reason for the row between the spouses was supposedly a bland dish served at the table.’

Davydkin told her it showed his wife does not love him.

‘If she loved him, there would be more salt in the food. After the guests went to sleep, the row continued.

‘The owner of the house offended his wife and tried to hit her.

‘The woman got angry, took a knife and inflicted at least 35 stab wounds to her husband.’

It later emerged she stabbed him after he had asleep.


Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s wife allowed access to posh Runda home

A court has ruled that the Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s wife can return to their Runda home.

Senior resident magistrate Isaac Orenge ordered the Runda police station boss to enforce the orders to ensure the family enjoys peace. The orders stopping Linturi from evicting Kitany were lifted on December 11.

The effect of the orders led to Linturi storming the residence and denying Kitany access. But Kitany immediately filed another application that sought to have the order dismissing her suit set aside. She argued that there was a threat to her life if the court failed to reinstate the order that barred Linturi access.

Her lawyers said the matter had not been listed on December 11. They blamed the registry for the mistake.

Magistrate Orenge, in his brief ruling, said, “I find that the door of justice is not closed because a mistake has been made by a lawyer. This was the first time Kitany advocate had failed to attend court and the application was brought without delay. I allow the application in terms of Prayer 3 and order that the application be fixed forthwith for hearing.”

Although Linturi was opposed to the reinstatement of the suit, the magistrate restored it on grounds that the reasons for nonattendance were explained.
