A business strategist, Samuel Otigba, has taken to twitter to issue reasons why men should not get married if they know they are not ready to prioritise their wife over their mum.
Giving reasons why he will place his wife above his mother, the business strategist wrote:
“My future wife will always come before my mum. Same way her husband, my father, comes before me. For this reason a man will leave his father/mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. If you are not ready to prioritise your wife over your mum, don’t marry.
“Took a while to wean myself off my parents, especially my mum cause motherly love. Gradually I trained my parents on how to properly deal with my future self and respect my decisions by giving them space. A lot of people need to live alone for a bit before finding husband or wife.
“Does that truncate the love I have for my mum cause new wife, No. My mother will always have a special place in my life. If she needed blood, liver or kidney cause emergency, I wouldn’t hesitate. Like I said, special place, my future wife will have all places in my life, not one. “People dating to marry need to answer this important question: ’If you had to save one person in an even life or death situation, who will it be, a parent, your spouse or child?’
“If you were asked to save either mother or child during child birth complications, who’ll you pick?”
