Your partner’s parents really should be the ones trying to impress you, and here’s why.
You may be inheriting bad behaviour
What if your darling boo has questionable beliefs like “washing bum-bum is homo”? Marry them, and their bad behaviour automatically moves from being their parent’s headache to yours. See why they should impress you?
You’re fulfilling their dreams
Do you know if your girlfriend’s mum has done 100 days fasting so her daughter can move to her husband’s house? All the more reason for her to worship the ground you walk on.
You’re giving them bragging rights
Because every Nigerian parent loves to brag about their children, how they’ve gotten married and birthed 50 offspring.
Bigger family equals more black tax
You might want to start buying them small gifts when you visit or for their birthday (because, good in-law), and honestly, that’s a lot to even consider in this economy. Such gestures should only be reserved for in-laws who’ve worked for it.
What if you don’t like their child like that?
Maybe you’re just in the relationship to avoid paying for things yourself. What if them treating you nice is the key to your falling in love with their child?
You’re a spec
If they can’t prove why you should waste your time with their child, just carry your amazing self elsewhere. Periodt.
