Pretty Mike: Never marry someone because you owe them anything
By Ekaete Bassey
Socialite Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu aka Pretty Mike has issued general marriage advice to prospective couples.
Pretty Mike, who was reacting to deep puzzling question which has been making rounds on the internet lately, emphasised the importance of marrying someone because you are absolutely convinced about it.
According to the controversial socialite, it is incredibly faulty and great injustice to oneself to marry someone just because you feel you are indebted to them.
He narrated a life encounter he witnessed sometime in the past , reiterating marriage should never be ventured into as an act of repaying a debt or because you feel obligated especially in the wrong way.
Pretty Mike wrote: “I’ve been seeing this post a lot in the last two days. I will tell you one thing before I tell a real life story, you see loyalty… it’s rare to find. Especially when you are in a position with nothing to offer and even when you are financially able and someone still sticks by you without exploiting or taking anything off you, just know you are lucky.
“I remember a lady from years ago, when I first started business. She wasn’t easy on the eye but she had mad connect and a lovely personality. She met this handsome young man with absolutely nothing to his name and with her connections, she got him rolling in oil and gas.
“He amassed a lot, and then the girls started flocking in like flies to honey. He felt he owed it to her to marry her and she felt she was making her husband. But from the look of things, there was no love on his end.
“He frustrated this woman. There were too many girls, I just kept wondering why she wanted to sign up for this. She was heavily pregnant when she started drinking heavily and was looking so unkept.
“The day of the wedding.. she didn’t even wear makeup (just to show you the level of the frustration), the guests were 80% slay queens or should I say side chicks and friends.
“It was like she just wanted to be done with it and get back to her depression. After the wedding I didn’t see her again but I’d heard from a friend that she’d miscarried ( I hate to say this but some part of me wasn’t surprised.. the stress and drinking was that much).
“I know I am not married and I am probably not in the position to even give relationship advice but I do know one thing. If you are going to get married to someone, make sure it’s because you want to … not because you OWE THEM ANYTHING.”
