Popular Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri, has stated that love alone is not enough to make a marriage work.
The former presidential aide who stated this in one of his social media nuggets noted that marriage requires proper planning.
According to him, aside from love, there are several other factors that contribute to a happy marital life.
In his words,
“A marriage cannot survive on love alone. You need money, accommodation and maturity. It is only animals that have children and then look for how to feed them. As a human being, you are supposed to prepare and marry, not marry and prepare. Love is good. But love does not pay the bills.
And where the bills are not paid, love begins to fade, gradually, until it turns to something you do not recognise. You see, there is a thin line between love and hate. That is when you will greet your wife good morning, and she will ask you ‘what is good about the morning?”
