A Nigerian writer has sparked a debate online after he averred that marriage is a woman’s greatest achievement.
The young man made this assertion while urging men not to pursue women for marriage, pointing out that it is a woman’s responsibility.
According to him, a woman should be the one approaching a man for marriage because getting married is her greatest achievement.
He suggested that a woman hasn’t really accomplished anything until she gets married, no matter how great her accomplishments may be.
His stance stirred varying reactions from tweeps on the micro-blogging platform. While some agreed with him, a host of others believe that the narrative has changed.
In his words,
“A woman who wants to marry you should be the one reminding you about wedding/marriage. That’s her greatest achievement. Some of you men are ignorant of this, and na you the marriage dae shack for body”.
