US-based Nigerian pastor and founding father of Lighthouse Church, Shola Jordan Adeoye has given a piece of advice to women dating a man approaching 50 and has never been married.
Speaking in a viral video shared on his Instagram page, the certified professional coach and counselor who is an expert on marital issues, said dating a man who is between 48 to 50 years old and has never been married before is a big red flag in itself.
However, according to the clergyman, if a woman decides to get married to such a man, they should both get proper counselling before the wedding to prevent issues in marriage.
According to him, it’s very important of them to be counseled because a man who has been single for that long would find it difficult to be fully committed in marriage.
The video has gotten people talking on social media with the buck of them expressing agreement with his statement.

@baneli_prohair: “True. Like why will a man be single for that long No ex wife, No baby mama it’s definitely a red flag.”
@nkemzzz: “48-50 never been married what are you doing with your life please ”
@mr_exxe_: “He is right, I traveled outside the country for a year and 8 months, when I came back I find it difficult to tolerate my wife. I was not cheating but I began to see her complaints, noise, quarrels as a disturbance to me.
I will always want to be on my own so I don’t get disturbed or she annoying me. Sometimes I will even prefer we are quarreling so I have to be on my own and only play with the children. When you live single for too long you’ll find it difficult to tolerate or give someone space in your life.”
