Why Marriages Don’t Last Anymore—Olu Jacobs

Have you ever wondered how veteran actors, Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs have kept their marriage intact for many years? If not, then you might pick something from his experience and probably make use of it.

Marriages nowadays, especially of those in the showbiz industry, do not stand the test of time anymore. It is almost worse in Nollywood, where divorce is now a common thing.

Olu Jacobs, in a recent interview with The Nation, disclosed that the reason why many unions fail today is because people do not understand the meaning of the vow they made on their wedding; 'for better or worse, for richer or poorer.'

In his real words, “Like I said, you don't get married to come out of it. The words; 'for better or worse, for richer or poorer' are not mere words. They are not said for nothing.

“When you enter into marriage, you don't think of coming out of it. That is why some people cannot mentally recover from it again, because they keep thinking about it. And that is why you have to safeguard yourself. This can only be achieved by knowing the kind of friends you keep.”

He said further that, “People will come to tell you stories, even if you find out it is true, you will be the one to deal with it and apply wisdom.

“As a married person, you are now thinking for two. You cannot take any independent decision because no decision you take should be for yourself alone. Communicating helps a lot, once you are talking, it solves a lot of things.”
