Many Nigerians have said Nollywood actor Ramsey Nouah doesn’t walk red carpets with his wife of 15 years, Emelia Philips-Nouah because she is not beautiful, but in an interview with Premium Times, the father of 3 revealed the real reason they don’t do red carpets.
He said; “My wife and I have an understanding. And this is one of the reasons our marriage is still standing strong. We avoid the public eye because the public has a way of messing up relationships.
Sometimes, my wife goes ahead of me into the event, so we don’t do red carpet. It is the same people that harass you for not taking your wife to red carpet event that will sit back and point fingers at how you both look.
On people saying he don’t take his wife to red carpet event because she is not beautiful, he said, “That is what they think. My wife is very cute. May be because my wife is not loud or flashy when it comes to make-up or wearing long weaves.
She is very natural and she knows that I love her natural looks.
On the success of his marriage, he said, “Contrary to a widely held notion, the success of a marriage largely rests on the woman. But these days, a lot of marriages are based on equality.
A woman wants to get 50 per cent of whatever she is giving into the marriage back from the man.
This has led to the breakdown of many marriages.
From time our mothers used to be the women that held their marriages. They were in charge of the home.
Our mothers took charge of everything but today women don’t want that kind of responsibility.
Hence, it is affecting marriages. My wife belongs to the category of “our mothers”. She believes in sustaining our marriage and holding it strong.
So whenever I am asked how we have been able to keep it together, I tell them my wife is the woman who has actually held our home.
On if he accords her rightful place in the home, “She doesn’t have a place because she owns the home.
It’s her call however (way) she wants things done. She is the driver of the family and her decision is final.
That is why I say she is not an ordinary woman. She is a triple woman.
