David Mathenge aka Nameless has one of the longest relationships/marriages among celebs in Kenya. He and his wife Wahu have been married for close to 15 years and have been dating for close to 20 years!
During their marriage, two have been blessed with two beautiful daughters and always look like they have the perfect couple to those who don’t know the complexities the institution faces.
Nameless appeared on MC Jessy’s YouTube page where he discussed how he and his wife had disagreements that would end up with him sleeping on the couch (American-style).
The singer revealed that he and Wahu also fought just like any other couple as marriage is not a bed of roses. “You know MC Jessy, let us tell people the truth. There are times I have slept on the couch and it really helps the marriage. At times you need to take time out,” said the singer.
The lanky musician also had some hilarious advice for young men wanting to get married saying that they should choose comfy sofas as they would come in handy if/when they have to sleep on it after a dispute with the wife.
“One thing I would like to tell men, they should be very keen while buying furniture for their house. Ensure that you buy sofas that you can use as a bed. When things get tough in the bedroom, you will need that seat not once or twice,” he added.
While this information might be frowned upon I see it as particularly valuable especially when someone looks at the marriage landscape at the moment. Many marriages of celebrities and even average people are devolving barely 5 years in.
Nameless’s solution points at the perseverance and temperance needed for a marriage to work, something that most newly-weds might not anticipate.
