Speaking are some of the lessons he has learnt from his marriage so far, Itoto Bartholomew Okpaegbe said, “I have learnt to be more understanding and ensure we are on the same page at all times to avoid certain issues. It has made me want to be closer to members of my family and think more about family and friends. Marriage and fatherhood have given me a different perspective on life.
My wife is a fastidious person, calm, understanding, caring and beautiful. I knew I couldn’t lose her because of the beautiful qualities she possessed. The fact that she is understanding despite my mistakes, crowns it all. She understands that we do not go to bed angry even if we have a misunderstanding.”

I make sure to create time to be with my family and play with my daughter because fatherhood is a dream come true and a turnaround for me. We live in the moment and family is all we have. I have mentors who hold their family strong despite their busy schedules and I learn from them.”
