Solomon Buchi, a self-professed life coach, has shared his perspective that inquiring about the family plans of couples, particularly unfamiliar ones, is lacking in sensitivity.
In a post on social media, the polarizing public figure, who recently celebrated his wedding to Adeola, expressed his belief that raising questions about strangers’ reproductive intentions is an impolite behavior.
He stated that many individuals might be grappling with fertility challenges, and prying into their personal matters could potentially activate and recall their difficulties.
His statement was posted on Thursday, August 10th.:
“When will you have children?” is a question you shouldn’t ask strangers. It is insensitive. You might mean well, but people go through a lot: infertility, miscarriages, and difficulty conceiving.
So each time that question pops up, it reminds them of their struggle. If you see couples without children and you care so much about them having children, pray for them, don’t ask them, especially when you don’t know them. It can be rude and intrusive.”
