The final decision a bachelor must make when he is prepared to settle down is whether to be married.
But why does he choose that person over the other group of people he might have been speaking to? What quality does he see in that person?
Today, Nollywood actor and skit creator Nosa Rex is responding to that query in a new interview with The Punch. Everybody will have a different response.
Here is what Nosa Rex had to say when asked about his marriage, including how he met his wife, how it has gone thus far, and why he chose her.
Speaking on how he first met his wife, Nosa Rex said:
I first met her when she came to see her friend, an actress, at a movie location. After that time, I didn’t see her again but I collected her number and we got talking.
Speaking on what made him choose her over his other girlfriends, Nosa Rex said:
The truth is that while I was dating, I hardly stayed with a lady for a long time because I love my privacy and the need to be on my own.
But when my wife came into the picture, I discovered that I didn’t want her to go and always wanted to be around her. I then realised that she is my wife.
I like the fact that despite me being an up-and-coming artist then, she liked me and believed in my dream. That’s the key thing that made me marry her.
She saw the future when every other person didn’t see it and she supported and stood by me.
Speaking on how wedded life has been so far, Nosa said:
It has been great. We just celebrated our seventh anniversary and God has been faithful. The key thing is that I married my friend and God has blessed us with three kids.
I don’t let the marriage thing get into my head, to me, I am still dating her. She is still my girlfriend and that is the way I have been able to manage my home.
I learnt how to love from my father. The journey has been smooth and I pray that God will continue to make it smooth.
Speaking on the best part of his marriage so far, Nosa said:
Having my kids at the time I got them. Everything I planned, God gave it to me the way I planned it and that is important and special for me.
I can now enjoy my early marriage and youthful life and have the energy to chase my career and give them (my children) the best life.
It has been amazing and all the glory belongs to God

On advice he gives to young people planning to marry, Nosa Rex said
My advice is that they should not rush into marriage, know why they are getting married and don’t allow anyone to push them into it.
One cannot meet a lady today and say you want to marry her today. It’s not possible.
I knew my wife for two years and we were friends because I know that love is not enough. Money is important but it is not everything.
Also, they shouldn’t be pretenders but open to each other, and be a team and each other’s friend.
There’s no manual for marriage. It’s what people experience that they share and I share these based on my experience.
