Dear LIB readers: Is marriage worth it?

From a female LIB reader
I just turned 25 year old two days ago. And as usual my mum will call me up and pray for me and tell me how old I am and that means that I need to get married.
Growing up, I have always thought I'll find the perfect Soul mate that would always love me. But as I have grown older, I've come to realize that it will never happen. There is no man that will not end up cheating on you or in some case, exhibit domestic violence. I have seen a lot of families go through either or both. I dont think I envy my friends getting married. I'm beginning to doubt if I should get married at all. Is it necessary? I know we are in Nigeria and this is frowned upon  but I need sincere answers. Is marriage worth it?
Oh I think it is. Very much so. I don't think you should stay married if you're miserable...but you must try it....at least once in your life time. What do y'all think?

El Rufai replies Ayo Oritsejafor, tells him to look beyond his bling

Mallam Nasir El Rufai has reacted to the statement released yesterday by Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor-led Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, where he (El-Rufai) was accused of trying to tarnish the image of Oritsejafor (read here).

In a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Muyiwa Adekeye, Mallam El Rufai advised the CAN President to look beyond his bling and answer questions surrounding the private jet seized by SA authorities and his involvement in the controversy. Find the statement below...
When light unexpectedly shines on murkiness, those exposed by the stinging rays often berate the light rather than regret the muck. That is the plight of Ayo Oritsejafor whose private jet was identified as the vessel impounded by the South African authorities for ferrying $9.3m cash into their country. A statement from Eagle Air admitted Oritsejafor's interests in the aircraft, but said it leased the plane to Green Coast which in turn acknowledged hiring the plane out for the trip to South Africa.

John Travolta addresses ex-pilot gay sex claims for the first time

Earlier this year, a former employee of Hollywood actor John Travolta, Douglas Gotterba, claimed the two had been in a sexual relationship when he worked for Travolta's aviation company during the 80s.

In July, the pilot, who worked for Travolta, 60, from 1981 until 1987, threatened to spill the details of their affair in a book but Travolta's lawyers took him to court to stop him from writing the book, saying he was bound by a confidentiality agreement covering his employment with the actor. The two are currently in court.

Speaking about the gay sex claims for the first, the married father of two told The Daily Beast;
"This is every celebrity's Achilles heel. It's just about people wanting money. That's all. It happens on many levels. Also, I don't care that much about it. Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can't control it. I think that's why it persists, to some degree."
