Fuelling the speculations that his four marriage to Colombian Sonia Morales has hit the rocks, Nollywood ‘bad boy’ actor, OK Ogbonna has stated that he there’s no love or romance in marriage.
According to Ogbonna:”Most people get married believing a myth. They believe that marriage is a beautiful box full of things they have longed for; companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc.
The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out.
There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage.
A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising,
of keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.”
Continuing, the Excess Luggage star beckoned on couples to jointly put heads together to salvage the marriage institution for the sake of generations to come.
“Our generation must change their approach to marriage for the sake of the next generation. This is not just for me as an individual but for those who need it.
90% of marriages are unhappy and wear fake smiles and pretend to be happy while depression is the case.
First we must remember that you married a friend, a support system , not an enemy or competition. You are now one . And since u chose that person out of a world population of over 7 billion people , your job is to protect that person always and make each other happy.
If we don’t fix marriages in this generation. It’s only going to get worse and our children would be the one to suffer it,” he pleaded.
