Omotola To Ladies: If your husband lacks the fear of God, you're on your own

At the recently held Africa International Film Festival in Lagos, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde shares the opinion that sharing faith with one's spouse and being disciplined are both key to a good marriage.
She says, "If you’re a Christian and you marry someone who is not born again then you are on your own. Your partner needs to be stronger than you. They are the ones getting the aftermath of your own action. 
"Pick someone who sees your heart, your soul, someone who sees the real you and not afraid to tell you about your flaws. 
"Discipline is key. Everyone wants freedom but too much freedom is bad. Be disciplined. It’s better to be an enemy to a work partner than to your family..."

She also advised against giving in to advances to get movie roles. “Sometimes you will get a role for giving yourself out but you won’t be able to retain it. If you become famous it will later haunt you."

Omotola has been married since 1996, and has four with her husband.

  3. Omotola it has been God all the way in your marriage jare,stop preaching fear,are you saying many people that have broken home is because they don't have fear of God?.
