Age disparity and money in marriages have often been the subjects of discourse on social media and actress , Charity Nnaji , is of the opinion that marrying a rich man would always guarantee happiness in a union .
In an interview with Sunday Scoop , the actress 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 .”
Nnaji, however noted that she would not want to marry an ‘ old ’ man. “ I don ’t fantasise about old men . I see them as people that had enjoyed themselves in the past and only want to take advantage of me . Life is too short to stay in a frustrating marriage . What is the point of having money in marriage when I am not satisfied sexually ? It would eventually lead to cheating , which is not good for a married woman ,” she said .
The mother of three also recounted how she was abused by the father of her three children . She added , “ I was a victim of domestic violence . Marriage is for the living. I can endure anything but not domestic violence . The more I prayed , the worse he got. I love my kids so much and I did not want them to grow in such circumstances . The last incident was terrible and after the fight , I decided it was over after 13 years of marriage . My mum tried to give me reasons to endure my marriage but I just could not stay any longer. ”
