Why many marriages don’t last – Actor Majid Michel

Majid Michel: Why many marriages don’t last

Majid Michel, a Ghanaian movie star, says many marriages fail because couples think of sex on their first date.

The actor, 40, took to Instagram on Friday to share a post wherein he gave his opinion about why relationships and marriages don’t last.

Michel said many lovers make the mistake of over-prioritising sex in marriages while ignoring elements of friendship.

“Interviewer: So Majid why do you think relationships and even marriages don’t last? Majid: well, if you are going out on a first date and all you are thinking about is sex, therein lies the problem,” he wrote.

“Cos it’s all about sex. People don’t know how to have a relationship outside of just a sexual relationship.

“They don’t know how to talk to a person, they don’t know how to be friends. and this is the reason a lot of relationships and marriages are breaking down.”

Majid was born in Cantonments, a suburb of Accra, to a Lebanese father and a Ghanaian mother.

In secondary school, Michel was actively involved in theatre and was a member of the school’s drama club. At the time, he had received a ‘Best Actor Award’ in one of his performances in Cape Coast, Ghana.

He started professional acting by auditioning for a modelling agency a neighbour had introduced him to. Majid would later get his Nollywood debut in ‘Emerald’, a 2009 romantic drama, playing the lead alongside Genevieve Nnaji.

The actor is married to Virna Michel with whom he has three beautiful kids.

  1. Nowadays women are so proud they dont respect their husband anymore. They want to be the head.
