Son of late Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Chukwudifu Oputa, Charles Oputa better addressed as Charly Boy, says marriage is not all about finding someone who match up with on all the cards but someone that don't ever want to blow out that little light inside you.
According to the Area Father as he is also known, he grew up seeing his parents love each other so dearly but does not get carried away because they argue and quarrel as if they couldn't stand each other.
The singer stressed that though marriage is full of various challenges, but never realized that he had been with someone from another background, home training and different ideology for good 36years.
He explained that his three failed marriages happened because he wasn't psychologically and mentally prepared for the mess, and challenges associated in marriage.
Charly Boy revealed that he has been married to his wife, Lady Diane for years and the seeming success of the union maybe as a result of his experience from other broken marriages.
The Area Father advised that for there to be a sustainable union, it is important that couple listen to each other in a way that the partner can't possibly doubt their love for them. “It was when I realized that love was forbearance that I had a successful marriage. Both parties have to know and have that. You bear and you keep bearing and you keep bearing. To be a bearer you must be a forgiver, sometimes no apologies rendered. Oooops! Yeah, that's marriage.”
