Nigerian author and lawyer, Reno Omokori, has averred that the popular saying, “behind every successful man is a woman,” is untrue.
The former presidential aide noted that behind almost every successful man are many unsuccessful years, and not a woman.
According to him, if a successful man had focused on women, his current success wouldn’t have been realized.
In his words,
Behind every successful man, there is not a woman. That proverb is a lie. Rather, behind almost every successful man, are many unsuccessful years. And if he had focused on women in those years, his present success would not have manifested.
So, never think that love alone, without success, can keep a woman with you. Love alone is not enough to keep a marriage afloat. Especially where children are involved. Once a woman has a child, her umbilical love for that child is likely to be stronger than her emotional love for you. If you can’t care for that child, because of poverty, she may cheat on you with a man who will!”
