Tina Johnson, a Nigerian gospel artist, has handed out some words of advise to women who are yet to get married.
She advised women not to marry a man who is still living in his family house.
"My Sister, don't marry a Man Living in a Family House, you will never enjoy that Marriage. I may sound Stupid and senseless but believe me the day you're married into a family house you'll remember this post. Even flies in the house will abuse you including your in-laws," she wrote in a Facebook post at the weekend.
Until you find yourself in this situation you may not understand this post. Sister, if he doesn't have any money to rent at least one room apartment, then you guys have no business getting married
How will you guys now cope with family expenses? Don't be deceived, marriage needs money.
The day your husband married you into family house, both of you have lost RESPECT and dignity in that family.
Even if it’s a room it will be much more better than living in a family house, for peace to reign.
If a man still lives in his parents house, tell him to get an apartment before paying your BRIDE PRICE. Statistics shows that, the wives end up unhappy, caged and frustrated.
No matter how good your in-laws are, pray you don't have any reason to live with them. They will show you shege. It's a matter of TIME. Just give them TIME. Visit them, let them visit you.
I repeat, Please don't marry a man living in a family house, you will never enjoy that marriage to its fullest.
