Glamsquad reports that Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, the veteran singer and social activist, has responded to reports that he is about to divorce.
He clarified that reports that he is planning to divorce can be compared to false story.
During the week, he wrote on his Twitter page, “My people, if I tell you that after over 45 years of marriage to my wife, I am going back to bachelorhood, what would you say?”
“I’ve said it before, this marriage thing is not easy,” he added. The longer you stay, the more difficult it becomes. How should I proceed? “I’m tired, o.”
“Some people are asking me how I have managed to stay in marriage for 45 years,” the ‘Area Fada’ said in an interview with Saturday Beats. It’s a lot of work. It has not been an entirely pleasant experience for me. My marriage isn’t perfect, but it’s a match made in heaven.
“Every year, rumors circulate that I intend to divorce. This is not the first time this has happened; it has been going on for the past 20 years. People see things differently because we all think differently.”
“Young people usually believe that love is all they need to marry,” he said of his social media post. That is a massive lie. That’s what I was attempting to say (in my post on social media). People should think more deeply when I speak. My marriage has lasted 45 years. What is left now? Because it’s a life sentence, I might as well finish in 10 or 20 years.
“I was curious how many people were inspired by my marriage.” I’ll be celebrating my golden wedding anniversary very soon. I’m not looking for a divorce. People should not take my words literally.
“I know I said I was tired, but that’s normal. Even as an activist, I eventually grew tired of everything. However, it appears that when I speak with people, they do not listen. However, there are a few people who listen and are inspired by what I say.”
When asked how he believes people who look up to him felt when he implied he was tired of being married, the ‘Fake Pastor’ responded,
“Why should those who look up to me be discouraged?” Should I tell you that marriage is simple? One must confront the facts. Furthermore, marriage is not for everyone.”
When asked why he still finds marriage difficult after nearly five decades, he said,
“Marriage will be difficult, especially when the kids leave.” Then it will be just two people facing themselves, especially in such a toxic environment. It could also be an issue if the woman and man are no longer earning as much money as they once did.
“Physical changes may occur that a partner may not be comfortable with, but that is to be expected.” Being tolerant does not even guarantee that there will be no problems in the marriage. One must work on one’s marriage until one dies.”
