Reno Omokri has warned those planning to marry that love alone will not be enough to keep a marriage together.
Aside from love, money, and a place to live, the author noted that a good marriage requires a variety of additional factors.
He took to Instagram to share his thoughts:
“A marriage cannot survive on love alone. You need money, accommodation and maturity. It is only animals that have children and then look for how to feed them. As a human being, you are supposed to prepare and marry, not marry and prepare. Love is good. But love does not pay the bills. And where the bills are not paid, love begins to fade, gradually, until it turns to something you do not recognise. You see, there is a thin line between love and hate. That is when you will greet your wife good morning, and she will ask you ‘what is good about the morning?”
