Ashraf Sanusi, one of the sons of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has advised couples against cohabiting before marriage.

Ashraf, in a post shared via his Instagram page, said cohabiting with one’s partner will adversely affect their marriage and lead to divorce.

Using a research study to back his claim, Ashraf stated that couples who live together before marriage have a higher chance of getting divorced.

According to him, couples should desist from cohabiting before tying the knot if they want their marriage to last.

He wrote,

“Living with your girlfriend/ boyfriend before marriage increases the chances of divorce by 1.3x
In another study 18% of those that do, get divorced compared to the 10% of those who only started living together after marriage.
So if you really want to get married for a long time, don’t live with your boyfriend/ girlfriend, only your husband/ wife.
Don’t listen to these woke children that’ll tell you “how will I know if they’re the right person”
Most of the people that say this have literally never been married.”
