Despite his shortcomings, Yankey said marriage places significant responsibilities on the man compared to the woman.

Marriage benefits women, not men; immediately after marriage, all her problems become your burden. Also, the restrictions of living with someone are difficult for me. I think I’m not marriage material,” Yankey said.

As a Ghanaian female, this guest spoke the truth about hardship abroad. He is also right about avoiding credit cards and loans if you want to save money. It’s all about planning and knowledge if you want to have a better life for the future. It’s so anywhere in the world, even in Ghana. If you keep borrowing money from people and not saving money, you will always be in debt, which can mess up your future and peace of mind. Fantastic interview.

He’s a gem with sound advice. I have lived in England since my teen years for over 21 years now, and my hubby and I have never had credit by God’s grace. Some have said confidently on this channel that everyone lives by loans, which is not so. We all have different experiences, and I’d say live by your means, and you’ll have the best life.

He is speaking the truth if you stay away from credit card and loans, you can be rich living abroad.

He has spoken well and It’s not only windows that we must pay attention to, all bore down to general maintenance. Ghanaians and Africa as a whole lack maintenance attitude. We can invest in a huge project but maintenance becomes a problem, looking at our stadiums and the amenities Nkrumah left for us. It’s a shame.
