Why ladies should stop living in parent’s house before marriage – Rev Idahosa Laurie

Speaking during her One on One conversation with Elsie Godwin of Plus TV Africa, Rev. Mrs. Laurie Idahosa revealed she moved out her Parents out at 17 to be independent.

“A woman should be independent before marriage. In the Bible, the proverbs 31 woman is one very hardworking woman..doing remarkable things, overseeing things…doing something…so a woman shouldn’t wait till she is married before stepping into her calling and destiny.
Once you are an adult, there is nothing wrong with you stepping out to navigate the destined part of your life, young adult women should have the freedom to explore life, business, opportunites, dreams.

I don’t believe a lady should stay in her father’s house till marriage, a responsible young adult should take responsibilites, sometimes you get married and its not exactly what you though it was going to be. “


On being responsible enough to live off one’s parent’s home, the happily married mum of three boys said:


“Responsibility is something that is earned in stages. I moved out of my parents home at 17 and i moved in with a friends who is an hairstylist and i began to experience life even before after school. I became independent, but even in my independcne, i still had a relationship with my parents, they were still invloved in my life.


Even till today, they still know about my finances, choices etc…a parental relationship as well as independence is important for a young adult female and it also gives a woman the opportunity not to be caged.”


She further reiterated her point saying “When sending a woman to her husband’s wife, she should be an asset not a liabilty, she should have networks and more…she needs time to become….so as to avoid stories or situations like’, ‘my dad took care of me and now my husband should too’… she should add value to her husband and not just be dependent on him. ”
