- People populated the comments section of the YouTube video, where many supported his claims
Ghanaian entrepreneur Kwame Fosu Asare has opined that marriage is not for the poor while admonishing parents to quit forcing their children into marriage.
The chief executive officer (CEO) of Carline Auto Parts explained to DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that the age of compelling children to marry is outmoded because keeping a home has become too expensive.
He urged parents to allow their children to find their feet when they secure a stable job before pushing them into marriage.
"When a youth finds a stable job, family members pressure them to marry or attend church. You'll fail if you're not strong enough. I always tell my wife that marriage is outdated. Marriage has become a problem for us. I don't mean you should not marry, but it is not a poor man's business," Asare said in a YouTube video.

How people reacted to Kwame Fosu Asare's remarks on YouTube
Reactions have trailed the video of Kwame Fosu Asare. Here are some of the comments below.
TOO MUCH WISDOM! SHOUTOUT FROM CHINA. This is really true. I have lived in China for five years now and realised there is no place like home. But travelling out of Ghana and learning so many things is good. My mindset has really changed after coming to China. And I can't wait to go back home to implement the ideas I have in mind. 16:56 In fact, that is true. I only knew how lazy we were once I came to China. Chinese are so hardworking. We are not patient; we just want to be rich within the shortest possible time.
I always love to listen to this man. His primary focus is for Ghanaians in the diaspora to return home so we build our nation. Travelling abroad is always right because it has changed lots of lives. We should keep in mind that we are all coming together to change the narrative of our nation with the knowledge and skills we have gained abroad.
This and more of these interviews are what we need. I beg to bring him back more often.
This man is making a lot of sense. If we talk about the challenges facing Ghana collectively without taking sides, without any ethnic or political sentiments, we will see the way forward.
True. He is making a lot of sense, paa.
