Nigerians have criticized Reno Omokri, an Author and Lawyer, who advised married couples to be wealthy before child bearing and raising.
“No, If it works for you, it might not work for others. Some get rich after given birth even some after marriage. If we go by this your say, especially in this our hopeless country, many will die a childless death and as well in poverty”, reactions read.
Reno Omokri posted on his Twitter page, advising married couples and single mothers to be rich before having children.
“It is the height of irresponsibility to have children and then look for the money to cater for them. You have the process backwards. Even if that‘s what your parents did with you, it is still wrong. First look for the money, then have the children”, he advised.
Meanwhile, Reno did not stop there as he further added that single men should never go into debt to give a girl’s family the wedding they want.
“If that is the price for marrying their daughter, then she’s not the right girl for you. A poor family, with a rich taste, is the surest sign of troublesome in-laws.
“Dear men, If the girl’s family wants a millionaire society wedding, and they are poor, you are dealing with a gold digging clan. They are many. You are one. If you go ahead with that marriage, you are attempting to break a coconut with your head”, he revealed.
Following reactions, some supported Reno’s advise noted that it is real as most of the parents suck out future husbands to dryness in the name of marriage.
Relatively, some rhetorically asked how it can stop with the say that white/church wedding (western cultural way of marriage) after traditional wedding is not important as thanksgiving to God after traditional wedding is okay to save us and our children the double stress and expenses.
However, many injected that they should educate parents on the right thing to do with wisdom as western cultural way of marriage may be reconsidered to reduce expenses.
Lastly in the news obtained by Daily News Nigeria, Reno Omokri painfully lamented that foolish man thinks he will invest when he gets rich.
“A wise man knows that only by investing can make him get rich. You explain to them that they must invest, they angrily say ‘how can I invest from my little’. Dont worry. You‘ll remain little forever”, he submitted.
