One of the biggest things a newly wedded couple looks forward to is the fact that they can start to build a home with their partner – plus seeing your loved one as much as possible.
But it doesn’t work out that way for everyone.
Nollywood actor OC Ukeje and his wife Ibukun got married last year (click here if you missed it) and a number of his fans wondered how they were going to make things work seeing as OC Ukeje is based in Nigeria and Ibukun isn’t.
He shared his thoughts on the long distance marriage with HipTV.
He stated ‘
(It’s) purely circumstantial and the reason I say this is because I think that for every upwardly mobile person or people at some point in your life you are going to have to deal with distance with your partner. Whether at the upstart of a relationship or in the middle or somewhere much later you will experience it. So I know it is a shock for people to say that you get married and that you start doing long distance. First of all because of our work choices, and our current positions as far as work is concerned. So it benefits us both for now to be where we are, and then over the next couple of months, and months can vary. It will begin to add up and then how to unify household will come in play
