Accomplished playwright, life coach and CEO of Roverman Productions, James Ebo Whyte has opened up on very intricate things about his marriage and inability to produce biological children.
The renowned mentor said that despite reports from doctors confirming that nothing was wrong medically with both himself and his spouse, they have, for 35 years been unable to have their very own children.
He is however unruffled about the situation he says, he sees the best of every situation and turns it into a blessing for everyone else around him.
It is for this reason he decided to impact the lives of some individuals who are at the other side of his experience. He has adopted several children who have been for a reason or the other been deprived or having biological parents.
Being the firm believer of Christ he is, he has chosen the pathway of faith. As long as there is life, Uncle Ebo said, he will, together with his wife, keep hoping for a miracle of a baby.
“I do not think we have even accepted that we can’t produce children, even now, we’ll keep trying to see if it happens,” he stated.
“We went through the usual, we go see specialists, we go do all kinds of test and the report comes, both of you are okay, there’s nothing really, medically wrong with you, then we decide let’s live our lives, let’s not panic over this, let’s not be upset about this, and let’s just have fun, let’s make our childlessness a blessing to us and to other people,” he added.
For Uncle Ebo Whyte, the onus falls on every man to stand as head of the family and defend his wife in events where there is childlessness in marriage. To ‘kick’ society off he maintained, one has to protect and speak on behalf of the family and defend his wife regardless whose fault it is.
“It is the one area that destroys marriages, the outside influences come, and they begin to push you. The lesson there is especially the men, stand by your wife, be the one to defend her, don’t leave her to herself and once society gets to know her man is behind her, they’ll back off.”
