It is no news that quite a number of independent and career driven women or women in the spotlight find it hard to have lasting relationships.
Some people have blamed this on a few men not wanting to settle with an ambitious woman. Well, Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, has agreed with a post detailing the challenges high achieving women face in their relationships.
Ace comedian, Ali Baba, had shared a post on how the world has changed so much that women are no longer settling for less.
They also want advancement in their careers and in their lives. Well, this might be good for their brand but one cannot say the same for their relationships.
According to Ali Baba, when it is time for these high achieving women to settle down, they become way too eligible for the men in their age bracket who should be ready to marry them.
Yvonne Jegede wholeheartedly agreed with Ali Baba’s post as she explained that it perfectly captured her life at the moment.

Could this be said any better? 🤷🏽♀️ #Repost @alibabagcfr with @get_repost ・・・ And when the young ladies decide to pocket the achievements and advantages they have, so they can submit to a man in that their age bracket, many of these men have been sooo beaten by the tides of life, that they are too busy fighting the wife they should work with. _ Any attempt by the wife to suggest to him to get up and do something to succeed, is treated as disrespect, nagging, pressure and sometimes stress. _ One guy was so broken by the frustration of not having made it since he graduated in 2010, and still without a job, that he wanted his Assistant Manager fiance, to move to his father's house in Magodo, from the Oniru 2 bedroom, she presently occupied. _ Why don't you move in with her and make your great moves from there? "Never. I can't marry and move into my wife's house." That is from a 32 year old guy, who still lives in his parents house. _ Don't get me wrong ooo. The economy is messed up. Our politicians have not done much to drag us out of the down turn. After elections, they start working toward the next election. _ The problem has left many young men, not ready to be married. They are not prepared or do not have what it takes to be a man that can take a woman as wife. And not just as wife, to even be able to provide as the head of the house. _ So the few men who are loaded and ready, are few and in very high demand. Many ladies can hurt any other lady who tries to take any rare find, of such a man. Especially if he has a house, good job, good car, looks good, dresses well and has very few defects. _ So what's the issue? The issue now, is that, even when these kind of young men, meet young ladies, who (by any reason) had a headstart, the young men are too faaaaaar behind, ill equipped and unprepared in the sourcing for opportunities and management of the relationship. _ They are now slaves to ego, frustration, pride, peer pressure, poverty of mind and sometimes total disillusionment. _ Look around. Don't say I told you. Everywhere. There are many, who don't know what to do, how to do it, where to do it, when to do it… Even with a Masters Degree in Bus Admin, LL
