Nigerian billionaire, Prince Ned Nwoko, who can be the husband to actress Regina Daniels, in a latest assertion revealed that he doesn’t date his wives earlier than marrying them, which occurs inside three weeks of assembly.
Nwoko who spoke to BBC information in Igbo, mentioned: Our (Regina and him) marriage is strong, based mostly on respect and understanding over time. I met her and I like her, we married inside three weeks, I married all my wives inside identical interval, I don’t consider in relationship anyone I need to marry.”
“You marry them and you start to fall in love throughout the marriage. Even in my very own tradition because it have been as a child within the sixties, folks weren’t relationship, they get married, throughout the households, they select a spouse, most ladies are anticipated to be virgins, they get married after which they construct a household from there.
And since they didn’t know one another earlier than they obtained married, there’s loads of pleasure and loads of studying to do, however Regina and I is a narrative that’s attention-grabbing as a result of earlier than I met her, I didn’t learn about her, I don’t watch motion pictures, I met her the primary time when she got here to my home along with her mom and siblings to my place in Delta, which is a vacationer attraction. I noticed her and I like her and that was it, you realize,” he mentioned.
On his marrying one other spouse, he mentioned: “Whether or not I marry one other spouse shouldn’t be … she is aware of that it will possibly occur, I come from a really polygamous setting myself, I like youngsters and I would like extra youngsters, she is aware of it and my different wives know this, so we see what occurs sooner or later.”
“You see the common Northerner marrying two, three, 4 ladies, they’re serving to the society as a result of it’s the financial downturn that has affected so many ladies who you see doing prostitution and all that. However the fallacy of all of it is that Christianity doesn’t permit that within the South and but, the common Southern man has 10 girlfriends.
I like my tradition as I do know it, not as they’re attempting to dilute it. Igbo tradition is fantastic and ought to be promoted the best way it has all the time been. However even taking a look at that, have a look at your inhabitants in Nigeria and what I’ll name financial system of marriage, as an Igbo man with one spouse, 4 youngsters, a Northerner has 4 wives with 5 youngsters every, within the subsequent 10 years, 20 years, think about the inhabitants of the Northerner.
“With you, an Igbo particular person, the inhabitants will likely be like one to 5 due to this disparity. The hole is getting greater and Igbos won’t ever catch up due to this self-imposed restriction,” he bemoaned.
