I was a millionaire when I married at 18 – Omotola Jalade advises ladies to have their money before marriage

I was a millionaire when I married at 18 – Omotola Jalade advises ladies to have their money before marriage
Popular Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde advises women to have their own money before rushing into marriage.

The veteran actress made this known in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

According to her she said she was 18 when she married and she was a Millionaire herself.

In her words;

“One must apply wisdom or common sense in everything one does. People cannot say that because I married at 18, therefore they can also do it. The question is, ‘are you ready for marriage’? When I was 18, I was ready. I had been working since I was 15-year-old and I had become a millionaire at the age of 18. That is a fact that a lot of people don’t know.

I had my own money. I was not dependent on any man. Moreover, my father died early, so I was already responsible for my younger siblings. I was like their mother at that time, so I was very mature and financially prepared.
One should not marry a man when one is not financially stable. If one does that, one would be going into slavery or better still, prison. If any of my children, after considering all these factors, say they are ready for marriage, we (parents) would meet the person and if we like them, we would give them our blessings.”
