Even before you’ve clocked six months of dating,the Kikuyu woman has broached the topic of visiting the parents. She will coerce you into making that trip to her village and seeing her Mama.
She’ll convince you that there are mangoes and avocados that she needs from the village. And that you must take her. And that you must see her Daddy ‘just for a hi’. The trip will quickly change from a simple mango-collecting rendezvous to a serious sit-down with both of her thoroughly-prepared parents who also invited six other old relatives who also brought along eight other older relatives and before you know it,your girlfriend is being auctioned off to you even before you can say ‘The Grace’.
Game over. You’ve met her parents. Whether you liked it or not. Try wiggling your way out of that confusion. And good luck. You need it.
