DJ Mo and his wife Size 8 celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary late last month. The two have been blessed with a beautiful daughter called Ladasha Belle. Size 8 is also pregnant with their second child.
I recently spoke to the DJ and he disclosed a lot about his marriage. One of the mentors he has in his life is Bishop Allan Kiuna. The Dj told me the most important bit of advice the cleric had given him as concerns marriage.
‘The Bishop told me that marriage is what you make it to be. If you want it to work, it will work, if you don’t want it to work it will not work. In essence, you will get out of it what you put into your marriage,’ he revealed.
One of the things that I have noticed about him is the way he and his wife love hanging out with Nameless and Wahu. The older couple has been together for 14 years and has two daughters together.
He replied saying that as with everything in life, it was good to seek help from couples who had gone ahead and had faced the issues they were facing now.
‘It is always good to get lessons from the couples that have been there before.’ he said.
And what did he consider the secret for a happy marriage?
‘It is always about tolerating your partner. You know that there are things that someone can do that can really annoy you,’ he opined.
He added that friendship was a very important part of making a marriage last. He explained,
‘You know in marriage after the 1st and 2nd year, you outgrow things like physical attraction you are left as friends. This is the person that you are with, 24 hrs.
He added, ‘Even if you married them for their beauty and looks after some time for you to maintain that marriage, one has to become a friend with their partner. Put simply, you have to marry your friend.’
His last piece of advice for couples looking to get married was in the same vein; That someone should marry their best friend and never receive advice from people who have never gotten married.
