Richard Mofe-Damijo, also known as RMD, a well-known actor, recently discussed the challenges of staying faithful in marriage during a podcast with comedian Teju Babyface.
RMD likened women to Delilah, making it difficult for men to remain faithful.
He believes that men are often the target of seduction by women, who can be as alluring as Delilah and Jezebel. To resist these temptations, RMD suggests that men strive to be strong in their faith.
Mofe-Damijo said, “It’s very hard for entertainers to be faithful in marriage because of the line of work that we are in. Every one of us is married, we are the target. Look at how women are, how can you escape it? Women are like Delilah, they are like Jezebel, they prepare… The only way the enemy can perpetrate their real intention is to constantly aim at the image of God or the symbol of authority in any home. Then shut it down. It’s like shooting a General on the battlefield. You drop him and then the battalion scatter. Their mission is to take down the head of the family.
“So, it’s very difficult [to be faithful]. You have to get to the point where your wife understands what she is up against as well. Because if your wife is not up to speed on what she is up against, then you would be left open.”
RMD is married to television personality Jumobi Adegbesan. The couple got married after he lost his first wife, talk show host May Ellen ‘MEE’ Mofe-Damijo in 1996.
