When it comes to the idea of marriage, everyone seems to have a different opinion as regards its importance and how society views it. While some people believe it is the uptmost achievable, others however, feel differently about it.
One of which is Nigerian beauty and fashion entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani who has come out to reveal that marriage is not a priority for her. In a recent interview with ThisDay newspaper, the celebrity stylist revealed she walked out on hers because she wanted something more.
Speaking on how single mothers are treated in the society, she stated that one doesn't need marriage to be successful. Comparing herself with some married women, she revealed that she has impacted more lives through her business.
She had this to say: "Yes. I repeat it marriage is not a priority. Most people feel like those who are single mums like me are cursed or we’re not to be respected. I speak to several families and even have people that I impact their lives. Do you know how many salaries that I pay every month? Some men cannot do that. I pay almost 100 people salary every month. Then you will now tell me that because you are married you’re better than me.
You that are in your husband’s house and being fed and at the same time being slapped every day. If you are contributing to that family do you think they will be slapping you every day? We all learn from experience. I have been married before but because I wanted something more for myself I was able to leave the marriage and chase my dreams.
Speaking on whether she has plans to settle down in the future, she stated that as long as the person will support her dreams then she most definitely will get married again.
"So far that Mr. Right is going to help me achieve my dreams, supports me in my late night work etc. You know what? It is even hard for some people to support your dream because they feel you are supposed to be a mum, stay at home breast-feeding (babies). I played my role well as a wife. I cooked for him and took care of my home.
I make sure that I do everything but he has to support my passion, if that is what will give me joy. But most men want their wives to stay at home and just be a mum. I have exposed my children to my business and I take them along. My daughter knows everything that I do. I can be so intimidating. I have been with someone who is far richer than me and I have been with someone that I am far richer than."
