Nigerian actor Ramsey Nouah has dished out relationship nuggets and what actors and actresses should look out for in their partners.
The actor who has been married since 2002, in an interview with Premium Times said love alone cannot sustain a marriage.
He opined that companionship is key when looking for a spouse and if this is lacking, there would be no great marriage.
According to him, “My wife is special. She is not an ordinary woman. She understands things in a way many other women don’t. That is why I say, an actor or actress, has to find that special person. It is not love that will bond you. Forget love, love dies. What sustains the marriage is companionship. If you cannot find companionship in your partner from the beginning, then you do not have a partner.
“Don’t lust after a woman because of her beauty and don’t lust after a guy because he is handsome. You must lust after the companionship that bonds you together. It should be like “for some reasons you cannot do without her; for some reasons there is something about her that brings you home.”
Ramsey Nouah also advised intending couples not to rush into marriage like it is going out of fashion.
He said, “Companionship is not easy. When everybody is running into marriages as if marriage wants to go out of fashion, take your time and be ready for it. Be ready to accept someone with his flaws. My wife has her problems and I also have mine. A lot of it actually and I know. You must be able to accommodate the other person.”
