Actress Olayode Juliana who was popular for her role in Funke Akindele’s Jenifa Diary series as ‘Toyo Baby’ has always been a strong advocate against s3xually relations before marriage.
And in a recent interview with The Nation, she reiterated her firm belief against fornication which she claims leads to infidelity in marriages.
According to Juliana, s3x before marriage leads to cheating because when people eventually become married, they start comparing their partners’ sexual prowess with that of the people they had s3x with previously, before marriage.
When asked if she believes that s3x before marriage makes relationships more complicated, Juliana responded:
Yes I do. S3x before marriage makes relationship more complicated. Some ladies date more than five men before marriage and sleep with all of them because they see it as a norm or a way to prove their love against God’s standard. I personally believe that there is a lot to s3x than the pleasure it gives. It makes you become one with the person. It ties you with the person, such that when you marry you compare your previous s3xual life with your present and the memories of how you did it with the other person won’t leave you, expecting more from your husband or wife, forgetting that we are all not the same and our s3xual lives can’t be the same as well.
That’s what leads to cheating in marriage. Some men or women can’t imagine been faithful to just one person because they’ve done it with several people in their past or before marriage so it’s difficult. Research has it and I learnt that if you had s3x with a particular person if you meet the person years after and you’re alone or whatever, it is very possible that you will do it again.
On being a really strong advocate on ‘no s3x before marriage, she said:
S3x is good, don’t get me wrong, I mean God created it and everything He made is good and beautiful but s3x before marriage is what makes it bad and wrong and s3x with anyone else apart from your husband or wife in marriage is bad as well.
