Popular media personality and actress, Laura Monyeazo Abebe, better known as Moet Abebe, has asserted that marriage is a “scam.”
According to her, women often enter into marriage solely due to societal pressure.
She expressed this viewpoint during a recent conversation with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
Moet, who revealed that she called off her engagement due to abuse, also said she has noticed that a lot of people are getting married for the wrong reasons.
“Marriage is a scam. Women only do it because of the pressure of the society. If someone is so particular about something, maybe the person is coming from a place of knowledge or experience. I mean, they say experience is the best teacher.
“Apart from that, I noticed that a lot of people are getting married for the wrong reasons. A lot of people are doing it because of the pressure [from the society].” She said.
Solomon, who wed in February 2023, expressed his opinion on Twitter that money shouldn’t be a barrier to guys getting married.
He gave the example of his younger sister who married at the age of 22 to a man who had an oil company position but lost it six months later, saying that a man needs a sensible woman who is prepared to face life with him, not money.
