If You As A Girlfriend Need Money, Ask Your Parents Or Get A Job: Reno Omokri
Popular social media influencer and Pastor at Mind of Christ Christian Center, Reno Omokri, has shaken a major table via his controversial post.
Reno, who made a post via Facebook, asked ladies to avoid premarital sex and premarital money. He was of the opinion that ladies should ask their parents for money rather than their boyfriends.
Read his full post here:
Two things you should avoid in a relationship are
- Premarital sex
- Premarital money
Save your body and money until you marry. If you as a girlfriend need money, ask your parents, or get a job, or start a business. If you as a boyfriend need intercourse, you should marry her first.
Ladies, men don’t get pregnant. If you have premarital sex and get pregnant, the boy’s life goes on uninterrupted. Your life will be more affected. Yes, men should be more responsible. But you too, close up until the man owns up to you as his wife!
