Nollywood actress, Charity Nnaji has said that any woman who marries a man that has no money will eventually see the love fade away.
The actress said this while giving reasons why she can get married to a man because of money.
Speaking to The Punch, she said,
“I can marry because of money. If one doesn’t love a man but marries him because of his money, one would later fall in love with him. But when one loves a man who does not have money, the love would later fade. I don’t care how strong the bond is, once the woman is the one footing the bills, she may start getting angry. Money is like a solid foundation that holds marriage.
An average Nigerian woman who is married to a jobless man would most likely cheat. Love is not enough as far as marriage is concerned. A young woman would only marry an old man if money is involved. If one marries a rich man, one would love him naturally without stress. I have seen a very lovely relationship that crashed because of lack of money. Money is like a spice that garnishes relationships.
“With my past experience in marriage, anyone I would consider would have to be rich. I don’t plan to burden him with my children’s responsibilities but I cannot marry a man that I earn more than because he would feel threatened.
I am not ready to settle for less. If one is married to a rich man, wisdom demands that one should save for the rainy days. If a rich man later goes broke, the survival of the marriage would depend on how the man treated the woman when he had money. If he treated one well, then one could endure with him. But, if he treated one unfairly, one would leave him even before the money (totally) vanishes.”
