It’s so annoying

I bought an ASO-EBI for 65k last year December and travelled all the way to Enugu from Lagos for the wedding. Paid my flight tickets to and fro, only for me to hear today that the couples divorced 4days ago!

Marriages don’t last more than 2 years this days, don’t know why. So from now on, anyone who brings ASO-EBI of over 1,500 for me; will sign an agreement with my lawyer….You divorce, you refund me my money with interest!
