Don’t argue with your parents about your life partner – Omotola Jalade
Nollywood legendary actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinda has advised the youth to always listen to their parents when going in for a life partner
According to Omotola who made the revelation in an interview with Doreen-Avio, Parents usually know things their kids don’t hence the need to listen to them when selecting someone they are ideally going to be spending the rest of their life with “Don’t argue with your parents about your life partner. There are things they see that you will not see. It doesn’t mean they are always 100% right. But trust me, 80% – 90% are right when it comes to very serious life choices like a life partner”
She also spoke on making career choices and added Parents can sometimes be biased in that regard but due to a generational difference and the change in ways of looking at it “When it comes to career, you will have to understand that parents are sometimes biased. It’s not really their fault. It is because they want the best for you and they believe some careers will make more money and time passed, it hasn’t, But times are changing”
