A Nigerian doctor, identified simply as Dr Akpoki, has taken to social media to share the crucial ingredient for maintaining a successful marriage.
Addressing both married folks and those planning to get married, the doctor said it would take some level of stupidity for their marriages to work because it entails a lot of forbearance and tolerance.
Dr. Akpoki, who has been married for 38 years, added that it will be difficult for highly logical and intelligent people to sustain a long-lasting marriage.
He cited this as a contributing factor to the end of the marriage of American business man, Bill Gates and his ex-wife, Melinda.
“If you cannot tolerate the following things, don’t get married. Number one, if you cannot control your temper, do not get married. If you cannot tolerate stupidity, do not get married. If you cannot say sorry even when you are right, do not get married.
I have been married for 38 years. Falling love is ‘common sense leaving your brain’. It takes stupidity and tolerance to remain married. Those who are too smart like Bill Gates and Melinda don’t remain married. Most Nobel prize winners and very intelligent people do not maintain one relationship. It takes some level of stupidity to remain married. I have been stupid for 38 years.”
