Three of the ‘unattached’ interviewees had obtained their MA degrees yet they, to quote one of them, ‘are still struggling to get Mr.Right.’ This revelation in a way suggests that women with credentials or academic accolades do not necessarily attract men or enjoy some advantage in terms of getting husbands.They were from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.The term ‘single’ or ‘unattached’ as the respondents explain, does not necessarily mean living without s3x.
Important Statistics 92(approximately 61%) out of the 150 respondents described themselves as single or unattached; 31 (representing 21%)were in serious relationships, and only 27 (forming 18%) were married.
Why are many African women abroad now seriously looking for husbands or serious partners? Of the 25 women who agreed to be intensively interviewed, 15 were single, 5 were in serious relationships, and 5 were married.
25 out of the 150 initial respondents, then willingly and confidently provided profound information on single African women abroad.
This is certainly not to discourage female education or scare women who aspire to reach the apogee of the academic ladder.
What has been pointed out is that ladies who achieve higher academic successes are often erroneously viewed by many men as domineering, women who have less respect for their husbands and are thus hard to get along with.
