Mixed reactions as actress Ozioma Okere dishes out relationship advice to married couples
It takes a lot of work to make a marriage work, some virtues like trust, understanding and maintaining a good friendship with one’s spouse can easily come to mind.
While some people have no qualms with who their partner keeps as a friend, Ozioma Okere believes otherwise. The Nollywood actress recently took to the Twitter platform to state that it is disrespectful to one’s spouse to keep friends of the opposite gender.
“Having a close friend of the opposite sex is outright disrespect for your spouse even if nothing is happening.”, she tweeted.

While some people believed there shouldn’t be an issue as long as there is trust in a marriage, others disagreed with her post entirely.

Respectfully, I beg to differ on your postulation. I think it’s all about understanding between both parties that matters most.

This is so right. If we were cool friends and you got into a relationship (opposite sex of cos). Out of respect for your guy and your relationship, I will naturally keep myself at a safe distance from you. Not to talk of marriage. People in relationship/marriages should learn…

What is the definition of the close? I don’t agree with her anyway.
