Toke Makinwa Tweets: Marry A Man Whose Vision Has Already Materialized

Dear Toke,

I agree that our experience sometimes shape our opinion. It is understandable if you hold this stance, however it is very misleading. Except your definition of “let his vision materialize” is different from mine.

If Michelle Obama had waited for Barack’s vision to be president to materialize, she wouldn’t be First Lady today. I’ll tell you the woman who’ll be the First Lady.

The woman who sees beyond the now. A woman whose vision is aligned with his, who sees the work he is putting in and trusts that hard work, determination and consistency always pays. A woman who is doing her own thing and understands what “process” is because she has gone through it as well. Add God and prayer into the mix and she’s all set!

I will not marry a man who cannot provide for his home, but waiting for him to be a billionaire and buy us a house in Banana Island so I can show it off to my friends on Instagram is short sighted.

Sometimes the materialization of a vision tarries. You as a Christian should know this: “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay”-Habakuk 2:3.

If you quote the bible so much, you should atleast understand its content.

    The beginning and end of her tweet don’t have the same meaning….in my opinion. Of course a man should have a job before starting a family but the complete vision may not necessarily need to materialise before marriage.

    Is there a like button because I want to click on it. I am married to my husband and we started dating from university days, he didn’t ve a wonderful job but he had vision and they re beginning to materialise. Oh people thought I was stupid, fine girl why stoop low. We ve 2 girls now and none of our so called advisers and friends are married.
