I’m 24 years old and from a family of six, three boys and three girls. My position is the 5th. My parents’ overprotectiveness are getting in my way.
My family attends Deeper Life Bible Church. My parents are overprotective. Due to this, my siblings left the church and started attending a different church. I did the same. My dad tried to stop us but we insisted.
I am a graduate and working. While my siblings have all left home because of my parents’ overprotectiveness and control, I vowed to God that I will only leave when I get married.
Men have been coming to me for my hand in marriage but they all end of leaving when my mum prevents me from going out on a date with them. Inviting them over to the house, is always a problem. Actually, I grew up with these overprotective lifestyle and it’s affecting me badly because I am not so socially confident. I barely have friends.
If I go out in the morning and return at 4 p.m. in the evening ,my mom will make my life a living hell that day. She won’t talk to me or respond to any of my greetings. I have been bearing this for years now.
I have been praying and fasting for God to bless me with a man who will love me for me and He has answered me. I met a guy on Facebook who loves me. I even told him no sex still after marriage and he agreed to it. We have become like best of friends. The only issue with him is that he is not yet financially stable to get married now. The bigger problem is that my mom will not let me see him even though he comes around the house. She just does not want me to go out. This is making my guy complain and I am tired, so tired but I don’t know what to do.
How can I be in a serious relationship with someone I cannot meet, spend time with and get to know each other. That’s not really nice.
Please advise me what to do. I also pray for God to bless my guy financially to come and do the right thing, so we can get married and live together.
