Marriage should be about respect for a partner, says celebrity stylist, Toyin Lawani.



She however released a new statement on her Instagram based on the feedback that followed her comments.

"If I didn’t saythis it will be a case of I said that, please remember that we all have our notion about life and the situations we have been through,have overtime, influenced our thought process.

Marriage is just a platform which humans need to use in defining and consoling each other, but at the end of the day, men just need kids cause it’s important & we are the oven.

Most men think we belong in the kitchen. They hate when women are in control. I write this from an informed position. “Been there, done that”.

I have been with someone who’s richer than me & also been with someone who I’m richer than, which has been a worthwhile experience to have a balanced viewpoint.

As a woman, when you are at the receiving end in marriage, men just want to control you.

I long for a situation where love strives & my drive for success is encouraged without my man being intimidated.

Most women make their men feel bad but I don’t, I’m humble & respect my man, age regardless. Cause they are our kings.

But men will always be men & women need to align with that fact & not try to change that.

Even pastor Sef dey cheat, just pray to God to send u your Bestfriend, who will respect you enough not to bring shame into your home.

At the end of the day everyone deserves to be happy, but not to stay in a bad marriage at the expense of their Happiness.

Men cheat & all that money lavished on wedding becomes a waste, you go through divorce & your kids will be subjected to mental punishment. No woman on earth can Replace a father, I will rather spend my lifetime with my Bestfriend knowing we have each other till the end.

People need to stop getting hassled into marriage & in the process, settle for the available (wrong man). let the will of God prevail in your life journey.

If u hv a partner for ten years and eventually get married then that implies you have settled for a true friend whose friendship will permeate your union. married women in this part of the world sacrifice the most & still subjected to abuse & disrespect from their spouses.

Where is the principle of equity & fairness. it’s a 50/50 thing, 'sacrifice for me &I will sacrifice for you'. I love my career bt my kids come first, Be best friends then marriage will come," Lawani wrote.
