Anybody that is a graduate or an undergraduate of any Nigerian tertiary institution would readily tell you about cohabitation among students of higher institutions. It’s kinda common to see a guy and a babe live together in an apartment either rented by the guy or rented by the babe; they live together like husband and wife, the girl cooks for him, that is if the girl can cook o. They do everything married couples do.
Many of those that cohabit in schools, their parents are never aware of this. If for any reason either of his/her parents or sibling is to visit, they will take care of things perfectly so that the visiting parent/sibling wouldn’t know what is happening.
Most often, such relationships end after one of the lovers graduates. Then the one that still has few years to graduate would invite another to cohabit with him/her. So such relationships most often end in school.
But on rare occasions, those that cohabited in school may still get married. But the chance of this happening is very slim due to a lot of factors.
When I was in school, there was this guy in Optometry department, he had a very beautiful damsel as his live-in-lover. They did everything together and lived like husband and wife. The guy was few years ahead of her, so he graduated before her and his dad sent him abroad for further studies or something and within 2 years, his dad told him to marry because he was the first son, and the guy came back and married that same beautiful girl that he was living with while in school. I think this was possible because the guy’s Dad has much money.
So share your cohabitation experiences in higher institutions. For those that didn’t cohabit while in school, also share what you knew about it and your thought on this.
