Tchidi Chikere: Love Not Enough To Keep Marriage


Nigerian filmmaker, Tchidi Chikere, has said love alone is not enough to sustain marriage as believed by many people.

The movie director said this in an Instagram post on Wednesday, in a bid to reach intending couples.

Tchidi Chikere said before people go into marriage, they should discuss several issues such as religion, parenting styles, financial expectations, careers, and education among others.

In his opinion, the mindset that love is the only major thing needed to keep a marriage is age-old and should be ditched.

“Before you get married… discuss bills, parenting styles, credit, debt, religion, how to deal with family, what beliefs will be instilled in your children, childhood traumas, sexual expectations…” he wrote.

He said other things to be considered include partners’ financial expectations, family health history, mental health history, bucket list, dream home, careers and education, political views, and “whatever else comes to mind.”

Chikere’s comment comes amid rumors that he is no longer with Nuella Njubigbo, his estranged wife who is an actress.

The pair tied the knot at a decorated wedding in March 2014. The union has been blessed with a child.

But the marriage was in the news in May last year after they unfollowed each other on Instagram.

The divorce rrumorsthickened when Nuella removed the filmmaker’s name from her Instagram bio.
