Reno Omokri kicks against women marrying men for their money

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has admonished women to desist from using financial status as a yardstick for entering into a relationship with a man.

Omokri stated that men should not only be perceived as an ‘object’ that serves as a source of financial security and comfort.

Specifically using the recent wedding of the Princess of Japan, Princess Mako to her ‘commoner’ lover, Kei Komuro, Reno wrote;

”Dear single ladies,

Japan’s Princess Mako, who grew up in a palace, left the palace to marry a struggling man living in a one bedroom flat.

But you who grew up in a ‘face me I face you’ insist you can’t marry a poor man? Even in a palace, you will still be poor!

Poverty is in your mind.

If you hate poverty, go and make wealth yourself and then use the money to turn your man from pauper to prince.

Stop seeing a man as rich or poor.

You are marrying a human being. You are not marrying his money”
