A Nigerian writer and public speaker, Praise George, has spoken about the issue of marriage, citing money as an important factor.

In his tweet on Wednesday, September 23, he advised the rich, telling them that marrying a person who is poor will be a very big mistake.

George went ahead to show the disparity between those two classes of people and why a committed relationship involving them will never work.

He said that there will always be a money issue in the marriage as the poor only think scarcity. He added that they also “have zero money making habits”.
