Silverbird’s co-host and co-producer for ‘What women want’, Shade Ladipo, has advised women not to marry men below their standards.
The on-air personality, via her Instagram page, gave the advice following ongoing martial crisis rocking celebrity couple, Gbenro and Osas Ajibade’s marriage.
Ladipo stated that her reasons were based on the facts that most men feel threatened by the successes of their wives.
She advised women not to subdue themselves into the pressure of getting married thus ending up with a loser as husband.
She wrote: “Usually I do a video but I decided to save you from my ugly mug today. My Musings is about Marrying Up or Marrying Down
“While I will focus on Marrying down, in my opinion Marrying Up also has its huge challenges. I’m pained when I see amazing, hardworking and determined women try to be put down by Society, Culture and then by Family Family in this case is your spouse.
“Please do not put yourself under any undue pressure to get married and then end up with a loser who will be threatened every time you breathe. Your calling is great and the man you marry must be able to take it and run with it.
“You need a man who understands that he must be your champion on and off the field. A man who is ready to be in the shadows so you can shine.
“Most women are ready to do this for their men so My dear pls don’t for 1 second think you don’t deserve such. Also pls let me debunk the lies ….
“The man who will love you and worship you is waiting for you, don’t allow anyone fool you into believing that your Age or Stage will reduce those chances. Cock & Bull Your chances are as high as YOU want them.
“Your self-confidence and Self-love will attract exactly the kind of man you deserve
“There is no Marriage O’Clock and if pikin is your worry then Freeze your eggs or Adopt. Your happiness and Peace should always be Number 1. Don’t settle for anything less. Don’t Marry Down. Don’t Marry Up. Marry your Partner.
“Someone who sees you. Someone who accepts you. Someone who wants you to do better than him.
“Someone who loves you more than himself. I always felt Osas was Marrying Down and from that illiterate rant, I was right.”
