Let us use Tiwa Savage, Tonto Dikeh and that Oba who wraps weed for a living as examples, marriage did not make them responsible... Rather, it showcase their irresponsibility to the world.


Now, let us also use the very popular Mia Khalifa as an example as well, Marriage did not only make her responsible, it also help her discover who she truly is.

Getting married helps one to become responsible, but doesn't makes one become responsible.

I think you might be placing the cart before the horse.

Shouldn't one be responsible before marrying?

Yes it does.

Well, it makes one appear responsible on first impression.

However, for those of us in the know... we are very much aware that many married men and women simply manage indiscretions more tactfully.

You will never know certain funny things until you get close enough.

If you are not married you may be living reckless life, thinking solo but when you realise you have kids at home. You gather yourself well.

You'd hope so, wouldn't you, but there's obviously some very irresponsible people out there, is what I've found, and I'd rather not advocate living on the hope that marriage would make such people responsible, especially if they are going to bring offspring into the world.

Responsibilities is a two layer thing. There is responsibilities towards the self (a grown up), and responsibilities towards the other (being married/a parent). A person with a high threshold of responsibilities will adjust his/her life to be responsbile towards the other, as that is what marriage intrinsically is all about. Responsibilities.

So therefore, marriage does not makes one responsible, it only spotlight the depth of responsibility one is capable of.

Great answer.

Its a fallacy.
That you were lucky to marry a responsiblemate does not mean the marriage made it so.
Shine your eye wella before you enter.
Whatever you see upfront mosttimes is the good wrapping paper.

It only makes one RESPONSIBLE for his or her MARRIAGE.
MARRIAGE is a commitment.
..... that's all

It's not about moving the cart.
It's about going the right direction.

It can turn the other direction(right) and continue moving backward.

That's if you want to be responsible....


but I see no reason why someone who doesn't want to be responsible would get married in the first place...

Ok, lol. If you try it though, you'd find you, your horse and your cart would not get very far.

No. Marriage helps people to hide their irresponsibility.

Our great grandfathers who called married man a responsible man. I biliv they knew what they were saying, indomi generation be careful.

If you married and you remember that thre is a woman and small children looking up to you for survival
and role model, nobody will tell u to adjust yourself to be responsible

Its common knowledge that single lady, even single mother is easily approachable and woo than married woman no matter how small or poor her husband is,

What makes men weary to toast* married women? Sense of being a responsible woman!!

Thou marriage can not make everyone responsible, but vast majority do responsible wen they get married and in any legal entity, thr are always threshold number of people to form a quorum and not all members.
