“Ladies please don’t marry down” – Shade Ladipo advice following Gbenro Ajibade’s public outburst

Following Gbenro Ajibade’s outburst, over wife, Osas Ighodaro’s bad parenting skills, Nigerian TV personality Shade Ladipo has advised women to be mindful of the type of men they choose to marry.

Shade, who got married weeks ago, warned women never to marry down by settling for men who will feel threatened by their success.

She wrote:

Usually I do a video but I decided to save you from my ugly mug today. My Musings is about Marrying Up or Marrying Down

While I will focus on Marrying down, in my opinion Marrying Up also has its huge challenges. I’m pained when I see amazing, hardworking and determined women try to be put down by Society, Culture and then by Family

Family in this case is your spouse. Pls do not put yourself under any undue pressure to get married and then end up with a loser who will be threatened every time you breathe
Your calling is great and the man you marry must be able to take it and run with it

You need a man who understands that he must be your champion on and off the field. A man who is ready to be in the shadows so you can shine. Most women are ready to do this for their men so My dear pls don’t for 1 second think you don’t deserve such. Also pls let me debunk the lies ….

The man who will love you and worship you is waiting for you, don’t allow anyone fool you into believing that your Age or Stage will reduce those chances. Cock & Bull. Your chances are as high as YOU want them

Your self confidence and Self love will attract exactly the kind of man you deserve. There is no Marriage O’Clock and if pikin is your worry then Freeze your eggs or Adopt. Your happiness and Peace should always be Number 1. Don’t settle for anything less. Don’t Marry Down. Don’t Marry Up

Marry your Partner. Someone who sees you. Someone who accepts you. Someone who wants you to do better than him. Someone who loves you more than himself. I always felt Osas was Marrying Down and from that illiterate rant, I was right
