Disclaimer: Please note that this is from a general perspective of an average Liberian family. If the shoe does not fit, do not take me to court- I sold my red shoes!
Yeah, I said it. Maybe there was no name for it, but most of us have that one uncle who was married, yet he fathered children with another woman. Our mothers watched and quickly took notes to apply to their own lives. No bush for a bad parent, so we would not try to throw them away, but can we get real for a second?
A typical Liberian parent made it very clear that education was way more important than any social life. There was no discussion on how to date, when to date, or who to date. Can you imagine what amount of voodoo it would take for a generation that watched their parents cheat to now have perfect relationships? I know some people have non-adulterating parents and all, but let us talk about those uncles and aunties that have accepted infidelity as part of our culture.
Raise your hand if you only have faithful uncles in your family. Raise your hand if you do not have cousins that are from different mothers, but same fathers. Keep those hands up and applaud yourself. Most of us cannot relate to your perfection, but we admire you. We can no longer just aspire to be like our parents when it comes to relationships, we have to raise the bar a lot higher. We are a generation of doers, so this is how it must be done. Liberian young men must step up to the plate and learn to start loving just one woman. Mind-blowing, I know, but they can try.
We need our men to love our women and to make beautiful Liberian babies that share the same ma and same pa. If a husband fathered another child outside of marriage, he broke his vow to you and that marriage. You do not owe it to him or Liberian people to stay and raise all the stepchildren. You owe it to yourself to do what you feel in your soul is right for you.
If that is staying, then so be it — but do it for you. The new generation of Liberian women must aspire to have healthy marriages that nurture children to go on to respect the sanctity of marriage. Marriage na joke oh!
Call us crazy, but this generation must not follow in the footsteps of our parents. We want to experience love in more ways than we saw. How many of you actually saw your parent kissing or holding hands? We have to do better to show our children that love is not just abstract, we have to show them the physical manifestations of soul connections. We must create a life around our children that shows love in action. We are not going to continue to accept the cycle of cheating with multiple women as if all of our men came with cassava stick eyes — if you know what I mean.
It does not matter how tempting the outside is, the home should always be enough to return to.
If our dating habits are not like the generation before us, it is because we are figuring out how not to love like our parents did. We want more. We demand more and that is what we will have.
