"Sorry, my sister, I did this too. I left a relationship of 6 years, then I met someone, a good friend in December 2020, then again on my birthday in August 2021. Today she is going to be my makoti. We have various reasons for doing this as men."
"He gave you 5 years to prove yourself and you failed. Someone did it in 6 months."
"Girl why would you stay with someone for so many years without a sign of marriage? Two years is enough."
@JoanneNkosi responded with:
"As women, we should learn not to hold on to the (duration) of the relationship rather check the (fruits) of the relationship. I’m sorry to hear that sis. I pray that God blesses you with someone that truly loves and respects you."
