Prolific author, James Ebo Whyte, popularly known as Uncle Ebo Whyte has urged persons planning on getting married not to do so without pre-marital counselling sessions.
According to the CEO of Roverman Production, counselors don’t teach people about how to marry. However, they serve as persons we can call on when there are problems in the marriage.
Hence, his advise to all those who are planning to walk down the aisle.
“The counselor is not going to teach you how to marry but he becomes somebody who you could go back to, to call both of you to order. So, when you go for counselling you’ve held yourself accountable to somebody.” He said, defining the role of the counselor before and during marriage.
The esteemed playwright and marriage counsellor also advised people in abusive relationships to “run” before it’s too late, adding that, ‘you don’t need to take it”.
According to him, once you notice your partner has a violent temper in the early stages, call his or her attention to it and call it off if the person is not able to deal with it.
He also added that people shouldn’t be afraid to end relationships as that is not marriage.
“Unfortunately, we tend to have this tendency in Ghana here that once a relationship begins we don’t think its an option to call it off, we don’t realise that when we are dating we haven’t as yet married. So, at any point in the dating, I can decide that you are not quite who I thought you were…so let’s go our separate ways,” he noted.
Uncle Ebo revealed that for the 10th year anniversary of Roverman, he will stage a one-man comedy show this September.
This, he said is to introduce Ghanaians to a side of him most people don’t know about.
