Earlier I had posted something about if you were abroad would you marry a citizen if your time was running down.To add fuel to the fire you really did not love this person?It seems harsh from whichever side you look at it coz you are using this other person but on the other hand maybe you have nothing to come back here to, so you have to do what ever is needed to survive.
And the worst thing with odieros is that they fall in love and they fall in love hard.I guess that is why they go psyko when they are dumped.While on the other hand I know many Kenyan couples married that is who are not in love and most probably never really were but are really comfortable together.Not to say that we do not fall in love, we do but we do not place as much on it as odieros do we tend to be more pragmatic about things.
Anyway besides that life is hard and when you are an economic refugee you need to survive.And yes the life you may be living there might not be much much better then your life here but at least you are gauranteed a roof over your head.
Would I do it?Maybe.....but I would find it very hard to live with myself but on the other hand you could learn to love the person as with the new rules many countries have you would have to be together for a few years at least.
Anyway keep the comments coming

Many of you blog readers out there live outside Kenya.What i would like to know is that let's say you're out there on a student visa and your time is running out and odds of renewal were really low.And to add to this there is a guy/chic from that country who really really likes you; would you marry them so as to extend your stay there?You really do not love this person but so as to extend your dream to live a lifestyle you have always aspired to would you do it?Let me know wouldn't you then I too will let you know how far I would go.
Watched Elektra the other day.Let me tell you this, poor acting, mid-level stunts, mid-level special effects.If you have ever read an Elektra comic you would know that these guys didn't do the character justice.My advice rent do not go to the movies!We'll see if Constantine is any better.
