Dr Mayowa Dudushewa Ekundayo, a Nigerian relationship coach based in New Zealand, has advised women not to look down on men who are still struggling financially or will miss out on great life partners.
The mother of two, who is married to Dr Samuel Ekundayo, an internationally acclaimed preacher and motivational speaker, gave the advice on Thursday, August 5.
Dr Ekundayo claims that when she met her husband, he was in his Master’s program and struggling financially, so he had to work as a waiter in a restaurant.
Despite his condition at the time, she agreed to date him because she saw a hardworking man with a vision and a clear purpose beyond his struggle.
“It was a day of joy when my husband bagged his PhD. I was very happy and fulfilled because we started the journey together!”
When we met 6 years prior, he was doing his Masters programme but was struggling financially and had to support himself by working as a waiter in a restaurant.
I still said “Yes” to him when he asked me for a relationship because I saw beyond his present struggle.
I saw a man who had a vision, clear about his purpose, hard working and loved me. I was ready to “suffer” with him because I knew I would also “reign” with him. It was only a matter of time.
Many ladies today want a ready-made man. A man they would not need to “suffer” with but only “reign” with.
“Please, don’t look down on a guy just because of his present financial state! Don’t lose a great guy! Don’t despise the days of humble beginnings. I hope this helps someone?”
Responding to the post, her husband thanked her for being with him from the begining.
“Thank you Jesus! Thanks Darling for being there since day one. My number one Fan” he wrote.
