Ghanaian playwright, author and relationship counsellor, Uncle Ebo Whyte, has stated that most marriages are birthed out of pressure from women.

He indicated that the pressure from women on their partners for marriage is usually intense.

"A lot of weddings wouldn't have happened if the woman didn't put pressure. If a man puts pressure, he has a reason; he fears losing the girl.

“But quite often, men would be okay with just dating for the rest of their lives because we don't have a biological clock. So, there is no pressure on men," he said.

He attributed the pressure put on women by Ghanaian society.

"Society never pushes pressure on us (men). Ask your young men here, maybe every now and then, their mother would call them, but generally, nobody puts pressure on them. But let a girl turn 25, 26, 28 … even in the church, there is pressure. Our society, I am talking about the Ghanaian society, puts pressure," he said.

Notable plays produced by Uncle Ebo Whyte include ‘Men run Women Cry’, ‘Dear God Comma’, ‘I Want Your Wife’, ‘God You're Fired'.
