Have you ever felt true love?
Oh yes. I am still experiencing true love.
Are you married?
I live with my dearest husband, Vincent.
How do you address him?
We call each other honey. Now our son, Denzel, also calls both of us honey.
How often do you annoy honey?
Surprisingly, we have never crossed each other, because we know how to avoid trouble.
On a scale of 1 to 5, how intimate are you?
Vincent and I are really intimate. But I donâ€™t know so much about your scales.
Why do you think many people fail to achieve that level of intimacy?
Unrealistic expectations, coupled with lack of enough time for courtship. You meet a guy in a club, dance with him and the next morning he is proposing to you. For how long do you expect such a marriage to last honestly?
Is money part of the problem?
To an extent yes. Many are opportunists; they marry for what you have but not who you are. Money is important, I agree, because life is much easier with it, but a true relationship needs much more; love, trust and understanding should be the priority.
Would you advise a man to pay tuition for a girl he wishes to marry?
Why not, if you are a kind person? However, men should not take this as a guarantee or seal of ownership. There is more to a good husband than just finances.
What is your favourite love word?
We call each other honey
