Why is Marriage overrated – Iyabo Ojo speaks [Video]
Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has expressed contentment in her relationship with Paulo Okoye, asserting that despite not being married, they both enjoy their partnership.
Ojo emphasized that they share the view that ‘marriage is overrated.’
This perspective was shared during a recent episode of her show, Iyabo Ojo TV, featuring veteran singer Charly Boy.
According to Ojo, “I am enjoying my relationship. I am enjoying it. Luckily for me, Paulo Okoye also doesn’t believe in marriage. We feel like it is overrated.”
Charly Boy echoed this sentiment, sharing his son’s idea of having a contract system for marriages, acknowledging the evolving nature of relationships in contemporary times compared to the past.
“I agree with you that marriage is overrated. My son called me the other day and said, ‘Dad, why can’t people have a contract and say we will just do five years in marriage and if we are lucky and happy, we renew the contract?’
“It sounds funny but you know, there are different coping mechanisms because these days, marriage is not what it used to be when our parents got married. Marriage is a little bit muddled up now. And people are a little bit more individualistic than they used to be before. Nobody wants to serve anybody. Everybody wants to get their own. So, that’s where the problem starts”, he said.
In 2022, Iyabo Ojo said that she is in a relationship but won’t reveal the identity of her lover on social media till they get married.
Earlier, the actress also revealed that she first experienced poverty when she married her ex-husband, Ademidun Ojo.
She disclosed this in her interview with media personality Toke Makinwa while sharing her experience of being married to the father of her two children.
