‘She’s old and not going anywhere’ Mans reason for avoiding marriage


A man has been putting off getting married to his baby mama because he wants her to age, making sure she’s out of the market after wasting her time.


Wanting to “test” the relationship a little longer before taking the plunge is a situation many Kenyan couples find themselves in today.

One of the main reasons your man may be uninterested in marrying you is because he wants to marry you when you are older and can’t move on.

They want you to commit to him for so long that you will have no other choice when you hit past 40 years.

The man called in to Classic 105 confirming this truth

What is the purpose of a wedding, as long as my heart wants you what else do you want?What’s the need of showing the public that I love you in a wedding yet after a few years we will divorce, si as long as my heart knows! 


He continues

Look at the rate of divorce in Kenya. Look at today’s weddings, how many people are holding Sh2million weddings, then divorce soon after? What is the value of a wedding? 

So what is his solution or alternative to marriage?

It’s very simple he argues. Come we stay together, have kids and in ten to twenty years we will see how things are. At that point I also know she has nowhere to go, coz who wants a woman with all these children? Which man will marry her? 

t this point ladies I fail to see the logic behind staying with someone who doesn’t want to marry you if you want to marry. Perhaps some men want to wait for the right person, not you.

The most annoying wedding request couples can ever ask Maina Kageni


If you’re not planning on paying for your wedding entirely, but rely on friends, count Maina Kageni out.

First of all why are wedding so expensive these days?

Some couples, or their families, decide they simply must pull out all the stops for a wedding. They want nothing but the best, even if they can’t afford to pay for it. To facilitate their dreams, they call on friends to fork out the money.

Maina is having none of these. He spoke about it in a discussion with Mwalimu Kingangi about failed relationships and more specifically people referred to as serial divorcees.

He said,

never invite me to a pre-wedding. I will never contribute, why should I con tribute for another man to go  and enjoy someone? I left the group

Back in April this year, a bride cancelled her wedding after friends refused to contribute to her dream wedding.

Her budget was 60,000 pounds, and explains why it’s expensive

“A local psychic told us to go with the more expensive option, and we thought why the hell not?”

She made sure to RSVP the wedding with a cash demand.

The bride also explained she “made it CLEAR. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime [sic] party.”

Much to the bride’s dismay, she and her fiancé quickly discovered that people were not willing to pay $1,500 to attend their special day.

In a now deleted Facebook post, she shared the reasons for the cancellation, saying, “I specifically…asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding? We talked to a few people who even promised us more to make our dream come true.”

A list of famous people who just love getting married


Do you get shocked to hear some of our favorite celebrities have been married 3 to 4 times? No? Me either. Some of them have even expressed their feelings that they don’t like being lonely and so need to be with someone all the time.

Yet there are those who have wed 8 to 9 times, and British American actress Elizabeth Taylor comes to mind here.

That’s way too many times if you ask me. Perhaps they should just chill out for a while.

Check out this list of such famous people who have made headlines with multiple marriages:

Kim Kardashian: Kim Kardashian is currently married to Kanye West. Together, they have 4 children. But Kanye is actually Kim’s third husband. She had a short 72-day marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries. However, Kris was her second husband – before she was famous, she was married at a young age to music producer, Damon Thomas from 2000 – 2004.

Jeniffer Lopez: Jenny from the block has walked down the aisle three times. Her first husband was Cuban waiter, Ojani Noa, they were married for just under a year. Second husband was back-up dancer Cris Judd. They were married September 2001, to June 2002 – even shorter this time. Then she married singer, Marc Anthony in 2004. Together they had twins, but the couple did not live happily ever after. Their divorce was finalized in 2014. She is now planning her wedding to Alex Rodriguez, who’s divorced.

Angelina Jolie: Angelina Jolie has been married three times. Her first husband was British actor, Jonny Lee Miller. The wedding ceremony saw Angelina wearing rubber pants and a white T-shirt with her husband’s name written on the back in her own blood. Her second marriage was in Vegas to actor Billy Bob Thornton after dating for only 2 months. Her third marriage was to Brad Pitt – they have recently filed for divorce.

Kenny Rogers:The country legend has been married 5 times. His first wife was Janice Gordon; from 1958 till 1960. Then came Jean Rogers; from 1960 till 1963. Third wife was Margo Anderson from 1964 till 1976. His fourth marriage was to Marianne Gordon; they married in 1977 and divorced in 1993. It cost him $60 million. Finally, his fifth marriage is to Wanda Miller. They married in 1997 and are still married. Looks like he finally learned when to hold ’em.

Larry King: Former CNN talk show host has been married eight times to seven different women. In 1997, he married his last wife, Shawn Southwick. On King and Southwick’s 10th anniversary in September 2007, Southwick joked she was “the only wife to have lasted into the two digits”. Larry and Shawn King filed for divorce in 2010 but reconciled, and filed for divorce again in 2019.


Nicholas Cage: Cage has been married four times. His first wife was actress Patricia Arquette, his second marriage was to singer and songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley. Very fitting, seeing as Cage is an Elvis fan. His third wife is Alice Kim together they have a son, Kal-El. In March 2019, Cage married Erika Koike in Las Vegas, only to file for annulment four days later.

“There was a recent breakup,” Cage, 55, said in an interview with The New York Times Magazine. “I don’t really want to talk about it. I was pretty upset about that and the way things happened.”

A list of what I expect as a husband and what I expect my wife to do

Nothing is as frustrating to a spouse when expectations are unclear, unhealthy, unspoken or unmet.
What’s worse is when these expectations are not communicated to the spouse because of the belief that ‘we are in sync’, and he/she knows what I like.
Experts have often drawn the line at what is acceptable and what isn’t but not so according to one man who wrote his list of demands.
This isn’t the case as a man on social media laid down the law to his wife:
1. I expect my tea ready on the table when I get in from work and no excuses if it is not.
2. My wife has to do everything for our children and I am not to be disturbed if I want to watch tv or whatever I want to do.
3. I expect the dishes to be washed and the house to be tidy and clean at all times
4. I expect my clothes washed, ironed and ready for me to wear.
5. I expect to be waited on and looked after like a king and all my needs fulfilled. If they are not then their will be consquences.
Dear Classic 105 fam, is this a partner making another live in fear of them and does the other think in nay way they are trapped in a controlling relationship? Drop us your thoughts.

Comedian JB Masanduku’s wedding plans are all set. JB was to wed his fiancée Jackie Karanja during her birthday on August 24, but has postponed it to November 11.

“That is my late mum’s birthday and I want to honour her as I honour the person I love,” JB told Word Is. He says his fiancée always speaks about how she would have wanted to meet her.

“I have talked to my people and the plans are all set. She chose to honour my mum,” he said.


JB says his mother was the most generous person he knew and taught him that,

“Whenever there is a problem, I don’t need to be quick to react and that has helped me.”

Among the people he has invited to the wedding is Deputy President William Ruto. “Ruto was easy when I invited him,” he said.

Others include comedian Churchill, Teacher Wanjiku, DJ Shiti and TV presenter Betty Kyallo. The wedding will be purple-themed, and the comedy legends who worked with his father will attend.


JB and Jackie, an actor at a local TV station, met last year and paid dowry early this year.

“It was love at first sight because when I looked at her, I knew she was the one and she is a nice lady,” JB said.

.this is not a good example to the young couples being mocked for asking help to do a big community wedding… we all look forward to walk our kids down the aisle after graduation… this is the next right of passage actually traditionally and biblically ur parents should help pay dowry….youths msiogope kufanya big weddings na kama wewe hutaki kuchanga for a friends or relatives wedding please dont attend the wedding.. u dance and eat like nobody’s business. even Jesus changad for a wedding

8 Lessons Dj Soxxy’s wife has learnt in marriage

DJ Soxxy and wife Ciiku wa soxxy have celebrated their 8th year in marriage with a trip to Dubai.

They are one of the celebrity couples who have given other young couples something to admire in marriage.

Ciiku wa Soxxy took to her social media to pen a long beautiful message to hubby which read;

#tbt❤️ To 8years ago when I chose to stick by this guy @djsoxxy..

Before I got married, I read somewhere ‘marriage is not for the faint of heart’ and I thought kwani how hard is marriage..


It’s the only institution you get a certificate before you even start the course….

Some of you have inboxed me and requested I do my 8 lessons in 8years and I will take up the challenge..

May it be interactive and let’s all learn from each other…

Look out for my next post #1of8 
#8in8 #family #marriagelessons#marriageisworkbutworthit#marriageshouldthrivenotsurvive


The long lesson post read,

I started my marriage journey by standing in front of God and man. So God should always be an important person in your marriage. Looking back and seeing the toughest bumps we have crossed or overcome.. I doubt we would still be standing were it not for God. 

It’s important for you as the wife to have your own spiritual nourishment, for the husband his own, for the 2 of you together, for the children individually and for the whole family together.

Prayer has calmed me when all I wanted to do was yell, prayer has sorted out stuff even before I knew what was coming my way and prayer has healed us when we didn’t know whether healing would occur. So I can’t emphasize this enough… Pray, seek God all the time. 

Some lady contacted me asking me how can I make my husband do date nights with me and I told her you can’t make or change him, pray about it.

I could tell that’s not the answer she wanted to hear, she contacted me around 3/4 months later she prayed about it everyday and God started moving and they were doing their 3rd date night.

Guess we love to complicate things, overthink, over analyze.. Relax and just Put God in it… #1of8#marriageshouldthrivenotsurvive#marriageworks#marriageisworkbutworthit
