In a programme tagged ‘Hot Topic’ on TVC’s chat fest show,Your view,with guest speaker,Tope Mark-Odigie,a hot question was asked ” Would you take money from your ex even when you’re married?
This was in response to a man who cried out online that his wife has been collecting money constantly from her ex for the upkeep of the house especially since he was out of job.
He felt really hurt and accused the wife of infidelity. Hence the question :Was it right for the woman to ask for help from the ex?
Tope Mark-Odigie addressing the topic, said in her home she does full disclosure with her husband – meaning she tells her husband anything even though they still quarrel.However speaking from experience, ‘many men’ can’t handle full disclosure.
Speaking on getting financial help from an Ex, Tope-Mark Odigie sees noting wrong in getting help from someone who you once had a relationship with as long as you’re not rewarding them with sex for financial help.
Excerpt of her response:
“I will totally collect money from my ex, there is no ex that didn’t ‘chop’ my money. Even when I dated somebody that was financially comfortable, I always feel I must do something for you too – so I have added value to everybody that has come in contact with me, and If they feel in the long term when I need help they want to support me, I don’t see anything wrong! As long as they’re not compelling me to reward them immediately – like have sex with them for that financial help, I don’t see anything wrong in asking for financial help from someone I had a relationship with before….”
