Nigerian comedian, Alibaba who was dragged
into an exchange by a follower who asked a
question about inter-faith marriage, has been
hailed over his reply.

Alibaba who shared a post about couples with different interests
being happy, had written on Instagram;
But with maturity, that is built on understanding, tolerance,
actualization of personal goals, financial security, good job,
opportunities in the National economic space where they reside
and of course level of exposure, it can be easy. The post did not
say impossible. It said harder. And just for those hard of
comprehension, your personal goals and their actualization is huge
chunk of your happiness level.

However his follower who reacted to post, asked;
“For a Christian to marry a Muslim, can this cause
unhappiness too?”
Replying the question, Alibaba stated that a marriage lasts
because of the couple’s maturity, tolerance and personalities, and
not religion.

His reply reads;

@obkwils there are Muslims married to Christians and they are
still married. 30 years after. They go and attend their different
religious affiliations. But there are pastors married to Christian’s
and it did not last. Even Pastor and Pastor Mrs break up. It’s not
Religion that keeps the marriage together. It’s the couple’s
maturity, tolerance and personalities (character, upbringing,
education, exposure and who they have become with a mix of all
that)
