Ace Nigerian writer, Publisher and founder of Genevieve Magazine, Betty Irabor took to her social media page to advise prospective couples not to be in a haste and allow societal pressure push them into settling down with the wrong partner. She said its better to stay single than to marry and live unhappily.
She made this advise earlier today following a message she received from an agonized woman living unhappily with her husband and seeking for her advise.
Read Betty’s advise;
She needs our advice! Personally, I think this whole idea of succumbing to societal or peer pressure to marry before a certain age is one of the reasons there’s more divorce and unhappy marriages and in some case mental illness. I believe it’s better to stay single than marry and live unhappily ever after.
If this lady is as miserable in her marriage as she says, she should work towards getting out. It’s better to be single and happy than married and miserable as in this case. I advise that they should both see a marriage counselor… but once again, let me say this loud and clear, if you marry in haste you will repent at leisure…
Agonized woman’s message
Good afternoon ma. How is your day? Happy to be a follower. Plz I have a relationship issue. Don’t know if you can help me share this but anonymously. I married out of desperation and pressure. It’s been 16months of torture for me emotionally. I don’t love my hubby. Not even a bit. I have tried and prayed. It ain’t working. He is actually not my ideal man. Everything about him pisses me off. I can’t stand it anymore. He isn’t working but that isn’t my problem. We are wedded in church.
