Nollywood actress, Sarah Martins has revealed that she was a virgin when she married her husband but their union still ended.
She stated this on Instagram while responding to life coach, Solomon Buchi who asserted that unions where the couple are virgins have the lowest divorce rate.
Buchi tweeted; “Virgins have the lowest divorce rates. Women who married as virgins have a 65% chance of having a very happy marriage than their non-virgin counterpart. “When it comes to sex, less experience is better, at least for the marriage,” – institute for family studies.
71% of men who have only slept with their spouse reported satisfaction with their marriage, while 64% women who’ve only had sex with their spouse say they’re happy in their marriage.
Women who’ve had 6 to 10 sexual partners were 13 percent less likely to report marital happiness. For men who have slept with more than 21 partners, they were 15 percent less likely to say they were satisfied with their marriage.
Non-virgins are projected to suffer more economic lack, low self esteem, academic failure and bad relationship choices.
In this pornographic world, virginity is a proof of discipline and focus. If anyone should be embarrassed, it should be the other party that revels in sexual promiscuity.
There’s nothing shameful about marrying on a clean slate. Most sexual problems in marriage stem from past sexual experiences. Lastly, even if there was no benefit of virginity, we ought to stay virgin till marriage because God commanded it. God is wise, I’ll rather follow Him, than follow the bandwagon. Stop trying to ridicule virtue just because you lack it.”
But Sarah Martins, whose first marriage happened when she was 19 years old, refuted Solomon Buchi’s assertions using her personal experience.
The endowed screen diva said that being a virgin does not ensure a long-lasting marriage and the fact that she got divorced despite settling down with her virginity intact, was proof that.
The actress wrote; “Dear Solomon Buchi, I was married as a virgin at the age of 19. I am still a loyal, submissive, respectful, hardworking woman. Getting married as a virgin will never stop you from getting a divorce if the need arises.. if e no good for your health quit!
Some of us are totally different from what we portray online… Stop the comparison already! The fact you got married to a virgin shouldn’t be an avenue to talk down on other people! We are all unique in our own ways! And yes, I was married as a virgin so what’s the jubilation about???? Mtcheeew #divorced.”
