Nigerian actor and producer Desmond Elliot has spoken about the secret ingredient of happy long-lasting marriage.
The Nollywood star, who won best supporting actor at the second Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, revealed that every woman needs attention, while men think money is the main issue, Nigeriafilms reports.
He was quoted saying:
"Women love attention, they want to know that they are loved and there is security but for a man, all he is thinking about is money, while a woman knows that though you still need to provide for the family, she would still crave for attention. A man sees the question’ how are you as how are you’ but a woman sees how are you in three different ways. She begins to think, okay, why is he asking me how I am? At what time is he asking how are you? Did one word come before the other?"
Desmond who is crazy in love with his wife once said his spouse meant "the whole world" to him adding they had been dating for 8 years before getting married.
Meanwhile the successful actor and the father of 4 has recently enrolled in the National Open University of Nigeria together with his colleague Ini Edo.
