Marry When You’re Ready, Not Just Because You Think You’re Getting Too Old – Reno Omokri Lays Down Some Advice

1 min


Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri, has once again laid down a nugget of wisdom for young people coming up.

Omokri says a lot, and not everything he says holds up very well to scrutiny, but he’s spot on this time.

There are definitely a lot of people in Africa who place too much emphasis on marriage, and when they start hitting a certain age and it hasn’t happened yet, start to panic.

That can lead people to rush into marriage even when they’re not ready.

According to Omokri, getting older doesn’t mean you should rush into marriage.

He advised people to wait and get married when they’re ready, no matter their age.

“Never set an age by which you must MARRY. DEADLINES cause DEAD LIVES. MARRIAGE is for when you are READY, not when you are AGEING. If you feel like winning a COMPETITION, go into SPORTS, not into MARRIAGE. There‘s no GOLD MEDAL for the first to MARRY #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets”, he wrote.
