Widely known as one of Ghana’s most eligible bachelors, actor John Dumelo is counseling persons who want to get married to be very careful.
The actor, who recently revealed that the thought of getting married scares him, is urging people not to marry simply because of pressure, age, sex or material things.
John Dumelo, also a successful businessman, believes that the institution of marriage goes beyond material things and should rather be based on true love.
The actor, who turns 31 in February, posted on his Instagram page what he believes should be the real reasons for marriage.
“Don’t marry for sex, don’t marry because you are of age. Don’t marry because you are getting old, don’t marry because you are lonely, don’t marry because you need
someone to support you financially, [and] don’t marry because you mistakenly got pregnant.”
The award winning actor added that: “don’t marry because you don’t want to lose the person, don’t marry because of family pressures, don’t marry because you like the idea of marriage and admire every wedding gown you see. Don’t marry because all your friends are getting married.”
According to him, people should “get married because you are in love, get married [because] he or she is your best friend and when that love is no more, he or she can still make [you] smile.”
John Dumelo concluded the advice with “#somedayiwillgetmarried” meaning he will get married someday.
