Haha! Thought provoking statement enough to make you click on this post right?
Mission accomplished! *winks*

No I'm not referring to me! *smiles*

So I've heard a few people utter that statement and even though the funny thing is once upon a time, this was also my mindset, it is nonetheless a thought provoking question in need of dire answers! 

So why do we really get married?

Someone asked/said in church Sundays ago, something similar; and he/she said "do we get married because of the companionship or because we want to make babies"?

It is believed that what we know or believe personally, is what we have either been conditioned to think, situations we have been brought up in, or circumstances that have shapened our modes of thinking.

So do we grow up thinking we need or have to get married because it is what is expected or demanded of us, or because that's supposed to be the next thing in a person's fashioned out life (I mean, after university/college and a great job, it is only right you think of marriage next right?) or because that's what our parents have done, or because we want an avenue to have unlimited sex without being judged? Orrrr because (the popular one one often hears), "I'm not getting any younger"? Should age be a sole reason for getting married?

What's the deal?
Why do you want to get married, and if you have, why did you get married?

Let me also leave you with these images I found via Google, and this tweet, as they resonate with this post in a way.

Old treasures find new homes.*

Ever wished you could raid the wardrobes of those people whose style you love? Now, you get the chance to! 

NFB yard sale is a shopping project that seeks to bring quality and stylish items from the wardrobes of style-savvy individuals to buyers at a fraction of the original prices.

"People sometimes buy things they never wear, own things they love that no longer fits, or just simply arrive at a stage in their lives that calls for a change of style; new job, new resolutions, or new tastes. These are few reasons why clothes end up unused or as clutter in most wardrobes."

At the yard sale, you'll get to shop from a diverse collection of styles, sizes, and price points. Whether you are shopping from the Budget Booth which offers items at N3500 and below, or from the Bargain Booth which lets you negotiate on must-have pieces sold  above 3500, you'll definitely score something spankin’ new or pre-loved pieces from different wardrobes at a fraction of the original price. 

Our aim is to help people give their unused possessions a lease on life by passing it on to a new owner, while providing buyers with discounted and stylish wearables.  The pieces sold at the yard sale have been sourced directly from personal wardrobes. 

There will be an Auction during the yard sale, which was conceptualized as a fundraising strategy for the Iroto School of Catering in Illoti community, Ogun State. The Yard Sale team is currently in correspondence with a representative of the Women’s Board Educational Cooperation Society, a not-for-profit NGO set up to contribute to the development of the Nigerian woman through various educational activities. The mission of the school is to continuously equip young women from impoverished backgrounds with skills and a better chance of sustaining themselves and their families. 

The auction, hosted by the fashion and lifestyle blogger Cassandra Ikegbune of cassiedaves(dot)com and an OAP from Spice TV,  will feature gorgeous and rare/valued wardrobe pieces donated by style-savvy influencers, and entrepreneurs such as Bidemi Zakariyau of LSF PR, Sharon Ojong, Sika Osei, Bola Balogun, and Temi Dollface.

Date:  July 24th, 2016  Booths Open: 12pm. Auction starts:  3pm

Venue: 35A Ethnic Heritage Center, Raymond Njoku. Ikoyi, Lagos
