Actor Ramsey Nouah has rubbished the idea of marriage counseling saying “Nobody gives advice when it comes to matters of the heart.”
The father-of-three, who has been married for 15 years made his view on marriage counseling known in an interview he granted New Telegraph where he also talked about his marriage, and how his wife, Mrs. Emelia Philips-Nouah, was responsible for its success.
Speaking on his marriage: “… 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 them. My wife belongs to the category of ‘our mothers’. She believes in holding a 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.”
When asked to give his colleagues in Nollywood tips to succeed in marriage, the 47 year-old actor said, “Nobody gives advice when it comes to matters of the heart. People say they are going for counseling and all but at the end, it is what is in their heart is still what they want to do.
“Because those things in your heart are laced with emotions and emotions are very hard to tackle. When you have emotion that is full of jealousy, hate or anger, it is hard to break it until you exercise it.
“That is why when your dad screams ‘do not follow that boy’ the teenager does not listen until she has satisfied what her heart desires from the boy. Most times, you learn by experience. Companionship is not easy.”
