Why I left my first marriage-Toyin Lawani


Serial entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani, has opened up on her stand on marriage, revealing it is not a priority, as she left her first marriage so as to chase her dreams.

In a recent interview with Thisday newspapers, the designer and single mum of two said

“Yes. I repeat it marriage is not a priority. Most people feel like those who are single mums like me are cursed or we’re not to be respected. .

I speak to several families and even have people that I impact their lives. Do you know how many salaries that I pay every month? Some men cannot do that. I pay almost 100 people salary every month. .

Then you will now tell me that because you are married you’re better than me. You that are in your husband’s house and being fed and at the same time being slapped every day. .
If you are contributing to that family do you think they will be slapping you every day? We all learn from experience. I have been married before but because I wanted something more for myself I was able to leave the marriage and chase my dreams.”

  1. Anyway, marriage is choice but never think you ve made the best decision leaving your family because you want to be independent or… But

  2. Marriage is a union put up by God Himself and anyone who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from God.

  3. Well if that what she feels… We have to respect her decision and let her chase her dreams like she said, I am paying 100 people salary…that a positive impact

  4. this is a slap on her face, is she trying to condemn married women and encouraging them divorce?

  5. Fantastic awesome,may God help help us…the economy system of our country is really affecting issues but this is at least trying to be helpful
