Someone recently shared a piece of advice given by John Dumelo, Ghana’s most eligible bachelor and I couldn’t agree more with it. Marriage isn’t something you can jump into in a blink of an eye. You’ve gotta get hitched for the right reasons and not because that’s the “in” thing to do. Remember it’s for life, till death do us part. You wouldn’t want that down the road after a few years, you’ve lost interest in each other and you start to drift apart. Best case scenario you stick it out with your other half coz’ you feel that’s the right thing to do; worst case scenario, you go your separate ways. Actually, there’s no best or worst case scenario coz’ both suck. So, put some serious thought into this whole marriage business before you jump into it. Get into it with your eyes wide open and not shut,k. 😉
Don’t marry for sex.
Don’t marry because you are of age.
Don’t marry because you are getting old.
Don’t marry because you are lonely.
Don’t marry because you need someone to support you financially.
Don’t marry because you mistakenly got pregnant.
Don’t marry because you don’t want to lose the person.
Don’t marry because of family pressures.
Don’t marry because you like the idea of marriage and admire every wedding gown you see.
Don’t marry because all your friends are getting married.
But get married because you are in love, get married coz’ he or she is your best friend and when that love is no more, he or she can still make you smile. 🙂
