Popular Nollywood actor, Benson Okonkwo, has lamented the rate at which marriages break up.

The actor, popularly known as ”Mr Packaging’ said the rate at which marriages collapse now is assuming a social status symbol in the society and in no-time, people will be throwing divorce parties and inviting friends and well-wishers to celebrate their divorce anniversaries.

The Enugu-based actor said this on his Instagram page @teambensonokonkwo.


He wrote: “They will choose aso-ebi, hire a hall and popular musicians & what have you. Even a question like “So when are you getting divorced?” will become common.

“If u know u can’t handle the weight & pressures of marriage, pls remain single. If u don’t know what marriage is all about, pls remain single until u do. If u are getting married because of the things u desire or hope to gain from the other person pls remain single.

“If u know u can’t be faithful, remain single. If u can’t endure insults from one another, pls remain single. If u can’t forgive one another’s wrongs, pls remain single.
