Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde shares success secrets of her 25 year old marriage
In a recent interview, veteran Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, revealed the survival secrets of her 25-year-old marriage to Captain Mattew Ekehinde.
Speaking with Chude Jidenowo, the mother of four said that she and her husband are partners, and they both have a journey that they would make with or without the other.
According to the actress, their marriage is not treated like a sacred thing untouched because they both respect each other’s space and choice.
In the video shared on her Instagram page, she wrote: “We are partners alright and I have a journey, I chose to make that journey with you.
You have a journey, I chose to make that journey with you. With or without you, I will make my journey. With or without me, he will make his journey. So we both understand that I’m with you is not because I have to be with you. I’m with you because I choose to be with you. He’s with me because he chooses to be with me. So we respect each other’s choices, each other’s space, and each other’s wholesomeness. He knows that I’m not with him because I love him all the time. I’m with him because God has given me a mandate to be by his side and vice versa so the time when I see him and I’m not so much in love with him, I report him to God. I’m like “Hey, what’s up now? Are you gonna make it come around?’”
Omotola married Captain Matthew Ekeinde in 1996 and together they have 4 children: Princess, M.J, Meraiah, and Michael.
