Sensational Nigerian Actor, Deyemi Okanlawon has stated that there is a need for partners to motivate each other if they want the marriage to work. The husband and father of two recently took to Instagram to announce that he was in the city of love, Paris, with his wife- an honeymoon promise it took him six years to achieve.
Speaking with Saturday Beats, the actor stated that the main reason why divorces and disunity are rampant in homes is that the couples involved may have too much love for money.
“It seems to me that nowadays, the inordinate affection for money is one of the greatest causes of issues and break-up in marriage. Men and women should understand the place of money and not turn it into a god that determines the time spent with their spouse or the peace in their household. Be progressive, productive and financially accountable – talk about your finances, as well as your plans to make, spend and save or invest money.”
He further gave his thoughts on marriage based on his experience over the past six years.
“Before you decide to get married, first become the person you want to marry. If you want a godly person, be a godly person; if you want a successful person, be a successful person. The only time this principle will not work is if you want to marry a beautiful person and you are not beautiful; however, remember that inner beauty is what really counts.
“Write down these traits. Be detailed and specific; for example, don’t just write a man/woman who loves God, write what he/she does daily that shows love for God. Do the same for every trait. Also, try not to take society’s expectations of spousal roles into your marriage, be prepared to find what works for you and find someone who is open-minded too,” he said.
