Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has dished out advice to prospective couples, especially men on being financially stable before jumping into marriage.
According to the 46-year-old author, rushing into marriage without a stable source of income is equals to giving poverty a handshake.
Taking to Twitter, Reno Omokri wrote;
“Nobody plans to be broke, busted and disgusted. However, when you marry and have kids without a job, or a steady income, you automatically make a pact with poverty to be broke, busted and disgusted. Carry money before you marry your honey.
“Marriage comes with RESPONSIBILITIES! Prepare for them, instead of producing babies you can’t cater for, and then you start harassing your relatives and calling them evil when they can’t help.”
