Toke who is divorced from ex-husband, Maje Ayide, said she is talking from experience as she has also being in a long term relationship. She stated that having a long term relationship does not translate to a happy married life when the couple decide to tie the knot. She said;

“I do not understand why you should date someone for more than two and a half years. That is my take. I feel like if you meet someone, two years is decent, two and half years is decent, By three years, its like ‘what again are your trying to find out’.

What didn’t you find out in the first and second year. I feel like 5 years is taking the piece and for seven years, you are absolutely having a laugh. By 10 years, it’s like ”are you the lord of the rings? I can say this because I have been in a long term relationship so I can tell you how I feel about it. My answer is no because I feel like often times, long courtships do not translate to a happy marriage.

Sometimes you find people who date forever and when they get married, they don’t make it past that year or two or three years. You find people who get married in a year and a half and 10 years down the line, they are still together. When people show you who they are, you have to believe them.

If you find yourself in a five year, seven years 10 years relationship, it is enough for you to sit back and ask the guy what is going on and where are we going to?

Why would you want to date someone for seven years. In that seven years, some people have gotten together, gotten married, had children, divorced and you are still this person’s girlfriend. There is nothing that you would not find out in three years that you want to find out in eight years.”

  1. when you find love and same time he is an understanding man, then you will understand. ask your fellow celebrities that dated for one month and got married how it has been or how it was before they got divorced

  2. Though dating a guy for five years is nt a problem in some relationship it depends on their status b4 they started dating like someone who is 26yrs old before dating the guy and also a graduate it does not make sense if DAT kind of person go into relationship for five years again

  3. In ur mind do you think dating someone for 2 yrs and half is good, don’t you know that they are many people out there that can pretend for (2)two years. The long you date them the better you get to know them and their hiding characters.

  4. Dating a guy for long is not a waste of time because before u guys stared dating u knw he wasn’t boyant or read to get marry yet

  5. everyone to his her opinion, but come oh she has started again with this her relation talk when she could not use all her sweet talk to keep a home.
