Larmmy began praying towards her future marriage as a student
Sharing her story, Larmmy said she had a checklist of everything she wanted in a man and would hold random 7 days vigil as well as morning prayers for her future marriage.
She added that she began praying even as a student and before leaving the country for the US.
Larmmy said prayer is like one making savings deposit in a bank.
"I started doing this even when I was a student, before I left naija. So if you're thinking you're too young or it's too early, it's not. Think of your prayers as if you're making a savings deposit in a bank. One day, you'll make a withdrawal.

Social media reactions
"I prayed and fasted to marry a particular girl but didn't work. I prayed and sow seeds to be become project manager instead I became a nurse. I am just saying."
"Most of you just assume stuff, I started praying for a wife from my 100L in school, most of you just assume guys are not serious about this stuff.
"When you understand marriage can either make you or destroy you, no one will tell you not to pray."
"I'm not trying to dispute a fact or a belief but why are the girls mostly trained to keep praying ,what happened to the men? Can't the training be for both sex? The same reason why most women would condone a wife beater all in the name of"he will change if I pray more."

Motivational speaker advises single people not to be like Rita Dominic
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a motivational speaker has explained why single people should ensure they don't end up like Rita Dominic in marriage.
Basil said that one should be celebrating 20 years of marriage at the age of 46 and not a new union.
The educationist explained that women have a higher possibility of giving birth to intelligent kids when they marry between the ages of 22 to 28, adding that the chances of doing so at 46 are slim.
While admitting that it is God that gives husbands, he advised women to stop being selective if they must marry before 46.
