“I just dey talk to many people wey think say marriage shouldn’t feel like work. Or if it feels like work, we are doing it wrong. Somehow our society has come to think of marriage as something we set and forget. Lie.

“Like anything else that is rewarding, we have to work at our marriages. And it’s okay if marriage is hard work! It can never be on auto cruise”, he stated.
