5 Students, 1 Question: Will You Get Married While In University?

September 18, 2020

What does life look like for Gen Z Nigerians everywhere in the world? Every Friday, we ask five Gen Z Nigerian students one question in order to understand their outlook of life. 


Marrying while in the University is something that has been happening for a while. It was especially more popular among women in older generations, so we asked five students if they will get married while still trying to get a degree

Here is what they said:

Samantha; College of Medicine (UniLag), 20

Why will I do that? So when my mates are saying they have outings to go to, I’ll be running back home because of my husband? God forbid.

Nonso; Ambrose Ali University, 21

If I get a girl pregnant, I think I might. I do not like the idea of children growing up in broken homes. Other than that, I do not think so.

Zainab; University of Ibadan, 19

Let Nigeria remove the SSMPA then I’ll think about it. Until then; get this bread, get this head, then leave.

Adam; University of Port Harcourt, 20

Don’t kill me please. How many fuck I don fuck wey I go marry?

Fadekemi; Covenant, 21

Honestly, I’m tired of school. School stresses me out. If I see a rich man who’ll marry me and take care of me and my family, I don’t mind. Especially if he has no children and is about to die. Who school epp?

1) Teachers always picking on you. “Everyone at the back, stand up and raise up your hands.” 2) Cracking the funniest jokes in class. Especially when the class is quiet. That’s when the jokes get funnier. 3) Not snitching and getting punished together. Teacher: Who said that? Backbenchers: *Crippling silence* 4) Never doing any assignment […]
