Nigerian film producer and actor, Martini Animashaun has opined that marriage institutions exist solely for business purposes.

He made this revelation on his social media page as Animashaun stated emphatically that both men and women go into marriage with a perception in mind. Women desire financial security while men want submission.

According to the Nollywood actor, while some people marry for love, the majority marry for selfish or parochial reasons, and unless we are deceiving ourselves, we would all agree that marriage is mainly transactional.

His post reads; 

I believe that marriage is strictly for Biz purposes. While many people get married for love, many others do this for their self(ish) interest with the latter being the route many seek. Women want security which includes money/ good life etc… most men want submissive relationships, where their wives cater to all of their needs. Unless we are deceiving ourselves, Marriage is strictly business.
