One important ingredient of a happy marriage is an active and fulfilling sex life – Yetunde Bakare

Nollywood actress, Yetunde Bakare, has opined that a fulfilling sex life is the major ingredient that married couples need to have a happy home.

She said people often blame the man when a woman leaves the marriage, and even when he is the one that leaves they still put the blame on him, which is wrong because he also has feelings.

According to Bakare, what many people are failing to realise is that an active sex life is a critical aspect of marriage – which is a significant commitment.

Speaking in an interview, the movie star advised that one shouldn’t enter the union without knowing their partner well. She also suggested that couples who are not enjoying intimacy with their spouse anymore should sit and try to find solution.

Yetunde Bakare said; “In our society, people often fail to empathise with men. When a woman leaves her marriage, it is often seen as a move to protect her mental health. However, when a man makes the same decision, he is labelled as ‘irresponsible’, ignoring the fact that he is also human.

“One essential ingredient of a happy home is an active and fulfilling sex life. Marriage is a significant commitment, and one shouldn’t enter it without knowing their partner well. For couples who are no longer getting sexual satisfaction from each other, I would advise them to sit down, discuss the issue, and find a solution.


“Love might not always be enough, so it’s important to marry someone one can tolerate through all circumstances; be they financial, mental, or physical challenges. If none of those issues are present, but there is still ‘sexual withdrawal’, it is advisable to consult a marriage counsellor or sex therapist.”
