Nigerian author and social activist, Reno Omokri has opposed the popular claim that behind every successful man is a woman.
According to the former Presidential aide, that proverb is a lie as he asserts that rather, behind almost every successful man are many unsuccessful years and if he had focused on women in those years, his present success would not have been achieved.
The dad of three also urged people never to think that love alone without success can keep a woman, adding that love alone is never enough to keep a marriage afloat especially when children are involved.
Below is his full post:
Behind every successful man, there is not a woman. That proverb is a lie. Rather, behind almost every successful man, are many unsuccessful years.
And if he had focused on women in those years, his present success would not have manifested. So, never think that love alone, without success, can keep a woman with you.See Also
Love alone is not enough to keep a marriage afloat. Especially where children are involved. Once a woman has a child, her umbilical love for that child is likely to be stronger than her emotional love for you.
If you can’t care for that child, because of poverty, she may cheat on you with a man who will.”
