'Nollywood's Popular Actor, Ramsey Nouah who turned 46th last December opened up in a recent interview about his life, marriage and wife. He revealed what he believed to be the cause of divorce and break-ups in many homes.
In a chat with Premium Times the 46-year-old father of three addressed this issue and others.According to him, “Contrary to a widely held notion, the success of a marriage largely rests on the woman, But these days, a lot of marriages are based on equality and rightly so. A woman wants to get 50 per cent of whatever she is giving into the marriage back from the man.This has led to the breakdown of many marriages.
Ramsey Nouah and wife, Emelia Philips-Nouah have been married since 2002 and have three children, Camil Nouah, Quincy Nouah, Desiree Nouah together.
From time our mothers used to be the women that held their marriages. They were in charge of the home. Our mothers took charge of everything but today women don’t want that kind of responsibility. Hence, it is affecting marriages.“
When asked how his wife fares in this regard, “My wife belongs to the category of “our mothers”. She believes in sustaining our marriage and holding it strong.So whenever I am asked how we have been able to keep it together, I tell them my wife is the woman who has actually held our home.“
Talking about his wife’s place in their home, “She doesn’t have a place because she owns the home. It’s her call however (way) she wants things done. She is the driver of the family and her decision is final. That is why I say she is not an ordinary woman. She is a triple woman.“
