Being Old Enough To Marry Has Little To Do With Age – Reno Omokri
Former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has sparked a conversation about the age of marriage with a controversial tweet. He wrote that being old enough to marry has little to do with age, but rather financial stability.
Omokri, who is known for his controversial views on social media, argued that a man of 40 without a viable job or business and no savings is not old enough to marry. On the other hand, he believes that a man of 21 with a good job or business that can support a family is old enough to marry.
The tweet has received mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media, with some agreeing with Omokri’s view and others expressing their disagreement.
Many Nigerians believe that marriage should not be based on financial stability alone, as love, respect, and compatibility are also essential factors to consider.
However, some others share Omokri’s view that financial stability is crucial in determining whether someone is ready for marriage or not.
In response to the criticism he received on social media, Omokri advised men to be gentle with their wives and children, whether or not they have financial stability. He added that even if a man has the money to support his family, he must still show compassion and care towards his family.
The tweet has sparked a conversation about the importance of financial stability in marriage, and whether or not it should be the sole determinant of someone’s readiness for marriage.
While some argue that financial stability is necessary for a successful marriage, others believe that love and compatibility are equally important.
