In a world where physical appearance is often given more importance than anything else, a Ghanaian lady named Maame Esi has taken to Facebook to express her thoughts on the true nature of marriage. Maame Esi’s comments come in the wake of a statement made by Ghanaian Twitter influencer and critic Bongo Ideas about the marriage of Ghanaian actor Harold Amenyah.
Bongo Ideas had said, “I expected the handsome Harold Amenyah to have better taste than this. Maybe she’s rich Because, even with the makeup, her looks do not match up with his in the least. Offside. Maybe this is another classic case of ‘love is blind’ because, in terms of aesthetics, he made a poor choice. His crushes must be disappointed right now.”
However, Maame Esi has a different perspective on what really matters in a marriage. She wrote on Facebook, “Marriage cannot be built on beauty…..it fades and 99% irrelevant in a marriage covenant. Marriage is about character, mutual respect, honesty, communication and total commitment. A married woman is bound to go through different phases in the marriage; from childbirth to raising children which is an enormous task which requires grace, emotional intelligence, patience and love to do that. Domestic duties and etc…. Finally…. God created each and every one of us in His image and likeness. God doesn’t make a mistake. She is beautiful and tailor-made by God.”
Maame Esi’s comments highlight the importance of inner qualities such as character, mutual respect, honesty, communication, and commitment in a marriage. She also emphasizes the fact that physical appearance is not the only thing that matters in a relationship and that it fades over time.
The comments made by Bongo Ideas and Maame Esi have sparked a debate on social media, with many people sharing their own opinions on the matter. While some people believe that physical appearance is important in a relationship, others agree with Maame Esi that inner qualities are more important.
In the end, it is up to each individual to decide what they value in a relationship. However, Maame Esi’s message is a timely reminder that true beauty lies within and that it is important to look beyond the surface when choosing a partner for life.
