Divorced Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has told women that, staying in marriage because of financial gain is lame.
She said this while having a tweet chat with some of her followers. One of her followers asked what would her advice be to women concerning domestic violence, then she replied by saying it is lame to stay in such marriage because of financial gain. She also added that she is yet to see anyone who left such marriage do badly.
“Staying in a domestic marriage because of financial gain or the lies you tell yourself about surviving is lame, I’m yet to see anyone leave a bad situation do badly, it’s the fear that keeps you from your potential.”
Then a follower inquired: “Well, I ask this concerning someone who I know, she is afraid because of her children. How will she survive with 5 of them,”
And she replied;
“If she’s dead, they will survive. Women need to get busy, relying on a man can put you in jeopardy. Use your hands, get up, get busy.”
Separation is an option, why must you take someone life cos you don’t love them anymore? Mental health is real too.
I know, loneliness is tough but it’s way better than hanging on to a dead situation, the pain being in that relationship hurts more than loneliness feels”
