One day, during an evening class for adults, the

psychology Teacher entered the class and told


“Let’s all play a game!” “ What Game?”

The Teacher asked one of the students to volunteer.

A gentleman, femi came forward.

The Teacher asked him to write 30 names of most

important people in his life on blackboard.

Femi wrote names of his family members, relatives,

friends, his colleagues and his neighbors.

The Teacher told him to erase 3 names that femi

considered most unimportant. Femi erased names

of his

colleagues. The Teacher again told him to delete 5


names. Femi erased his neighbor’s names.

This went on until there were just four names left on


blackboard. These were names of his mother,


wife and the only daughter…

The entire class became silent realizing that this

wasn’t a

game anymore for femi alone.

Now, The Teacher told him to delete two more


It was a very difficult choice for femi. he unwillingly

deleted his parents names. “Please delete one

more” said

the Teacher. Femi became very nervous and with

trembling hands and tears in his eyes he deleted


daughters name. Femi cried painfully…

The Teacher told femi to take his seat.

After a while Teacher asked “why your wife? The


are the ones that nurtured you, and the daughter is


one you gave birth to ??? And you can always find

another wife!!!”

Total silence in the class.

Everyone was curious to know his response. Femi


and slowly said, “One day my parents will pass


before me. My daughter may also leave me when


grows old, for her studies or business or marriage

to live

with her husband or whatever reason. The only one


will truly share her entire life with me, is my wife”.

All the

students stood up and applauded him for sharing


truth of life.

This is true. So always value your life partner, it’s


only for wives but husbands as well.

God has united these two souls and it’s on you now


nurture this relationship above all.
