Ghanaian actress cum producer Yvonne Nelson says it is better to have children with a friend than with someone you have fallen in love with.
Speaking with Andy Dosty, Yvonne stated that love is a distraction when it is involved in raising a child. She cited that parents fight on social media to the detriment of their children’s future because of the love they share.
“I feel like when you want to have a kid, it should even be with somebody you are not in love with. The minute the so-called husband you love so much goes and cheats (and they will do it), you catch feelings, you go mad and all of that. I’ve realized that people catch feelings… they fight on social media, they do all crazy sorts because they are in love.”
Earlier, the mother of one shared that she would like to have more children. Telling how she would achieve that, she points out that she has friends who may be interested in such an arrangement.
“Someone who is also ready and wants it (have a baby), I can do it with him,” Yvonne divulged.
Yvonne Nelson explained that having children should be built on mutual respect, not love.
According to her experience, if a woman and a man find themselves ready to raise children, they should, in the absence of any amorous commitment to each other.
“You do crazy stuff when you are in love. So if you want to bring a child into this world, it should be mutual respect and understanding. Be responsible. Be ready to have a baby, not because you are in love with someone. That’s all I’m trying to say. Do not go and get pregnant because you are in love with a man.”
