Shola Kosoko said young ladies who focus on marrying rich men might wait for a long time
In a chat with Legit.ng, Shola Kosoko said that how rich the man is should not be the main reason for starting a relationship.
"I met my partner when I was young but we didn't start a relationship until I was much older. I will not advise any lady to start a relationship when she is too young. Wait till you are ready for it."
Speaking on her advice to the people looking up to her as a role model. She said not all that glitters are gold. Ladies should not be materialistic when choosing a life partner.
"I will say that not that glitters is gold. If you meet someone showering you with gifts, it does not mean the person is the right one. A lot of young ladies want to marry rich men. If they insist on that, they might not get married for a very long time. They should court the man they want to marry. There is no way he would hide all his characters during courtship. If you can cope with 70% of the man's behaviour, I think the person is good to go. Most times it is not all about money and gifts, it is about the peace of mind you will have in the marriage. I am not ruling out the place of money but the focus should not be just material possession alone. Once the man is hardworking and the woman is trying her best, things will work out. There shouldn't be a trace of violence, once a man hits you, take your leave. People will give you a lot of advice, it is better to weigh the pros and cons before you take the advice.
