Broken courtships better than broken marriages – Tiwa Savage, Teebillz

It was a surprise to learn that Tiwa Savage’s marriage to Tunji Balogun, popularly known as Teelbizz hit the rock some days ago.

In assumption, Tiwa Savage was adorable. Viewed to be pleasantly in love and, especially, a working marriage, but something was not right and the public did not know. The first thing to see, here, is the ability to keep the public out of the loop in your marital issues – even though you could seek for counsel when necessary.

Nothing happens so fast without any antecedents. The problem of Tiwa and Teebillz’s marriage is hinged on different things, among which are: Tiwa’s sacking of her husband as her manager; Tiwas’ family involvement by asking Teebillz to stop managing his wife and look for another lucrative job; allegation that Teebillz was always beating her up, and that she had to move out of the house temporarily to stay with a friend; and Teebillz’s fanciful spending, among other things.[1]

Unarguably, whether as a man or woman – when marriage becomes difficult, life becomes unbearable and then a partner will start to look for how to opt out.

What singles need to know here

Every single person has the opportunity of setting the records right. You can, easily, break a courtship than you can break a marriage.

In fact, as Christians, you cannot divorce your partner unless because of adultery (and that is when you catch the partner red handed). “They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery”Matt 19:7-9.

You can decide now to either continue or discontinue the relationship, provided you are seeing things that you are not comfortable with. Tiwa Savage actually admitted that she did not yield to warnings from family members about marrying Teebilz, thinking, she said, that when they married his behaviour would change.
