“Why I endorse courtship before marriage” – Afrobeat Gem, Simi
Amid the toll of this debate, Simi thinks it’s quite commendable for couples to live together for a while to digest each other’s flaws and temperament before tying the knot.
According to her revelation, while dating her husband, Adekunle Gold, she lived with him for a while and made her life-changing choice to spend the rest of her life with him.
She chided religion and disclosed that if a lady didn’t live with a man, she would not be able to counter the temperament of whom she would dive into marriage with.
“I used to go over to Adekunle Gold’s place for us to spend time together.
“I am of the opinion that… Maybe I shouldn’t share this opinion because I feel like religious people might not agree with me. I personally think that people who want to get married should live together for a little bit before they do that. Because I don’t think you really know someone that you’re going to marry until you cohabit. The way someone is when they are outside in their best behaviour is different from how they are when they are cranky and they haven’t eaten or when they wake up in the morning or when they are snoring.
“When you live with someone you know all the sides to them, that is when you really know if you can do forever with them. Millions of people have gotten married without living together. But I personally think it’s a good idea to cohabit before marriage. It doesn’t have to be for long.”
