This should be short.
So news making the round for the past two weeks were varied allegations and counter allegations by Mrs Churchill and Her Immaculate Mr X. That their celebrity marriage is heading for a crash is not a major news item again, to be sincere. These days, Nepa light in my area last longer than most of the celebrity co-unions. What strikes me was the lies and fronting Tonto Dikeh had been pushing forward about her marriage to her willing consumers before it purported crash.
Your see, Mrs Tonto has had us believe her marriage was Eldorado. Branding it as major goals for them single ladies. Her wedding was goals for many ladies and they are still hell-bent on finding a man like Churchill who will spoil them silly. We were all chilling in the comfort of our homes when Mrs Tonto broke the news of her husband buying her a Lexus Jeep. Just for keeps. She had serialized our eyes with a whole lot of material possessions her LOML had been dishing out day in, day out. Our single sisters had all been hoping, wishing and praying for a man like Churchill.
Once again, the society focus have been on the wedding and not the marriage. The focus have shifted from compatibility and comfort in marriage to material possessions and gift. Fame, money and class have replace humility, tolerance and self-sacrificing spirits.
My generation is now more concerned with pre-wedding shots, Bridal shower, Bella naija wedding, bespoke event centers and ovation centre spreads. My generation will attend a wedding ceremony and won’t bother saying a prayer for the new couple. Instead, we will argue and compare the wedding with the prior one we attended last Saturday. My generation will analyse the bride from the wedding gown to the make up.
The holy matrimony between a couple goes beyond the wedding day. Our focus should be on the marriage and not the frivolities that surround one Saturday afternoon.
Weddings maximally last for five hours. Marriage is a lifelong commitment. But if you’re a Mrs Churchill and Mr X, maybe if they can last a year. Be guided.
