Popular Nigerian socialite and businessman, Pretty Mike has advised intending couples who want to get married to do so because they want to, but not because they owe the partner something.
Taking to his Instagram page, Mike posed a question asking ‘if you are to choose who you would marry will you go for the person who stood by you when you had nothing or the one who helped you become somebody’?.
Reacting to the intriguing question (pictured below), that has been making the rounds on social media for weeks now, Pretty Mike shared an experience he had with a lady he dated, pointing to the fact that loyalty is rare to find and that when you find a woman who sticks with you when you have nothing or does not exploit you because you are financially sound, then you must count yourself luck.
See his full message below…
”I’ve been seeing this post a lot in the last two days. I will tell you one thing before I tell a real life story, you see loyalty… it’s rare to find.
Especially when you are in a position with nothing to offer and even when you are financially able and someone still sticks by you without exploiting or taking anything off you, just know you are lucky.
I remember a lady from years ago, when I first started business. She wasn’t easy on the eye but she had mad connect and a lovely personality. She met this handsome young man with absolutely nothing to his name and with her connections, she got him rolling in oil and gas. He amassed a lot, and then the girls started flocking in like flies to honey.
He felt he owed it to her to Marry her and she felt she was making her husband. But from the look of things, there was no love on his end. He frustrated this woman.
There were too many girls, I just kept wondering why she wanted to sign up for this. She was heavily pregnant when she started drinking heavily and was looking so unkept.See Also
The day of the wedding.. she didn’t even wear makeup ( just to show you the level of the frustration), the guests were 80% slay queens or should I say side chicks and friends.
It was like she just wanted to be done with it and get back to her depression. After the wedding I didn’t see her again but I’d heard from a friend that she’d miscarried ( I hate to say this but some part of me wasn’t surprised..the stress and drinking was that much).
I know I am not married and I am probably not in the position to even give relationship advice but I do know one thing. If you are going to get married to someone, make sure it’s because you want to … not because you OWE THEM ANYTHING.”
