DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
I’m 26 years and I’m dating a 25 year old guy who is a car sprayer. I met him 7 months ago. He has been car sprayer for almost 5 years now so two months ago I told him that I wanted him to have his graduation (wrap up his apprenticeship and start working on his own).
He said no that unless 2025. I also promised myself that I want to get married at the age of 27 years, and start having my children so that I can have enough strength to take care of them before I become old. But he’s not serious about it.
The most painful part is that he is a caretaker (taking care of someone’s house for them). I told him to gather some money so that he can rent his own apartment but he refused to do so. He used the money to buy clothes, shoes and other things. Apart from that he is not serious about anything again.
I met a Muslim guy also 2 months who is serious about settling down with me but I don’t love him. I love the Christian guy who is not serious. My parents also love him a lot. I want to break up with him but I don’t know what to do. I’m also afraid that my parents will not allow me to marry the Muslim Guy because I’m a Christian.
