What is the secret of being married and staying happy while at it? What are the things that are fool-proof, tested and trusted when it comes to getting married and staying married?
These questions have been answered over and over again but remain relevant from one generation to another especially in these parts, and require dynamic answers which reflect societal changes and behavioral shifts of each stage of civilization.
In this present age of millennial and generation Z-ers where social media is a way of life, where happiness is craved over and above everything else including marital longevity and gender equality is being sought more than ever before, how does one stay married and happy at the same time, and forever?
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has an opinion worth listening to
The iconic superstar actress, married for over 20 years, surely knows one or two things about being married and staying so. In her opinion, shared exclusively with Pulse Nigeria, having a healthy marriage cannot be separated from the very choice of who to do it with, the amount of information you let out about your relationship and the supernatural influence of God.
“Just pray to God that you meet the right person because no matter how good you are a bad person will bring out the worst of you and trust me there’s a demon in everyone,” she tells Pulse.
“So I think something I know very sure is; from the onset, when you are meeting someone, make sure you have God. And I know this might sound crazy but it’s the truth. I can’t say what I don’t know. That’s what I know.”
There’s extra emphasis on making the right choice, choosing someone whose character traits complement yours, and whose values align with yours rather than being at odds with them.
