Nigerian actor, model and TV Presenter, Gideon Okeke has taken to social media to social media to share some thoughtful marriage advice on his Instagram page detailing how couples could jointly make their union sustainable on the long run.
While sharing his tips, the married dad-of-one emphasized on the partners in the union complementing each other in their efforts in providing for the home. Okeke further stated that if the responsibilities of the home are one-sided, especially on the man, there is every possibility that he will be over burdened.
He then advice husbands and wives to share the weight as marriage is a team work.
Below is his full post…
”As a point of illustration…
A marriage is NOT a 100m dash.
Rather it’s a spirally unending relay race, where we continually exchange batons.
Here’s some of what I’ve learned on My own:
Dear husbands, don’t reduce your life expectancy by trying to be the Big Man, Always. You want to be there for your family even as your numerical age tends further north, and gravity pulls you physically closer southwards. The less dependent our wives, the more self sufficient they are, will make for a great baton exchange, when the Day comes. Or else, only you 1 na him be Usain BOLT o.
Dear Wives, notice that on the day of the “baton exchange” (figurative), the receiver needs NOT look back. For as long as he’s on his mark, your cheer and footfalls have Him prepared for his own race. Matter of factly, His race starts where yours stops.
You posses incubating and multiplying abilities to see that the collective race is won. Notice that the giver and receiver of the baton, both have their sights on the same finish line.See Also
Let’s have our children bear THEIR own crosses. Marriage is a team sport. Not Daddy’s solo event. You could break your back bending over backwards. Share the weight. A good husband does this…A good husband does that…till a good husband dies right before his Prime. I Miss you so much Daddy! And I love you even More.”
