A Nigerian man who is a motivational speaker, Olemerezi Basil has urged young single women not to follow in the footsteps of actress, Rita Dominic by getting married at the age of 46.

The gentleman took to his Facebook page to say that rather than celebrating a new union, one should be celebrating 20 years of marriage at the age of 46.

Rita Dominic's wedding Aso-ebi

Here’s what he wrote,

“Ladies please don’t follow the footsteps of Rita Dominic. There is no sweetness in marrying at 46years.

At 46 you should be celebrating 20years of marriage anniversary with your husband and your 20years old undergraduate by your side, even though it God that bless with kids.

The joy of celebrating each year marriage anniversary is greater than the enjoyment and publicity of marrying at 46.

As educationist, I will categorically tell you that women have higher chances of giving birth to their most intelligent kids at their prime-age of between 22 – 28 so tell me how high or low is the probability of giving birth to an intelligent child at 46.

I know it God that gives husbands but stop being selective and you will get marry before 46.

Note: Getting marry early or late is not a guarantee that the marriage will not have issues that can lead to divorce.”

  1. Why do people see evil in other people’s happiness, honestly because others are get married at a younger age Don’t assure the a long and everlasting marrii, instead of you bad mouthing others why not sit and understand your life instead, and make up for the wrongs in your life so far.Happy marriage life Rita ❤️❤️❤️

  2. That’s complete rubbish. This is 2022. First of all having children is only compulsory in vackwars thinking countries. Secondly getting married at an older age or not at all is a personal decision thar concerns nobody. Marriage is actually operated. So many people suffer in silly marriage because of what nosy Nigerisn society says. I say do what works for you and everyone like this man should mind his or own business.

  3. Bad belle guy, you wished you were the person marrying Rita Dominic, following Rita footsteps is not the right statement to say, I know you just a gossiper !
