Trevor Noah shares controversial opinion about marriage and cohabitation [watch]
The comedian and TV show host was on the Howard Stern Show on Monday where he spoke about marriage and cohabitation between couples.
“I’m not opposed to (marriage),” Noah said during the interview. Stern then suggested that ‘The Daily Show’ host would maybe “calm down with work” and settle down.
To that, Noah replied: “I don’t know. I can only know where I am now in life, and that’s what I’ve learned to enjoy.”
Then he spoke about being honest with any future partners.
“When we meet people, we should tell them who we are, be honest,” said Noah. “You know why? You should have the person love you — or hate you — for who you are, not for who you portray yourself to be.”
He then compared people in new relationships to a “used car salesman, bulls—ting about who they are,” which ultimately leads to the relationship eventually falling apart.
Stern then revealed that he’s an advocate for living together before marriage, but Noah does not agree.
“I’m a big advocate for not living together ever, even if you’re married,” he said. “I think one of the biggest reasons people get divorced and relationships break up is because of this cohabiting bulls–t that we’ve come to believe is the way relationships are supposed to be.”
