Nnamdi Oboli, the husband of Nollywood actress cum producer, Omoni Oboli on Saturday shared some marital advice via his Instagram handle.
Oboli, who is the author of the book, “Marriage For Better For Us”, in his poetic piece titled “Its’s All Up To You”, said:
Today, it’s anger towards the husband for putting up the toilet sit
But a little stretch of the hand to put it down would stop the dissension brewing in hell’s pit
The toothpaste tube conversation stretches through, to usurp valuable quality time
But a little shutting of the mouth would have stopped the irretrievable hateful words like the mouth that has just tasted bitter lime
The love we profess to one another suffers under the tyranny of our quest for selfish dominance
But the nurture and realization of our professed love must always be given the utmost importance
The individuality of each of the couple must lose its meaning from what it was before marriage
But not entirely at the expense of losing your valuable attributes that once were the attraction, thereby suppressing unexpressed rage.
Marriage is not a do or die affair, so don’t go into it hurriedly just because
But marriage is a do or die affair that couples must fight for within godly reason to achieve a worthy cause
Many people hurriedly open their mouths to aggravate situations which often only serve to entertain a third party’s musings
But learn to control and guard your God-given territory, knowing that love covers a multitude of sins
It may seem like a simple advice cannot solve the complicated web of problems we’ve wielded for ourselves
But complications are our way of displaying our prideful ways to God so that mankind can feel they have total control of themselves.
