Robert Burale Divorce
Robert Burale, learnt from his past marriage. “My marriage broke down after exactly one year and two days,” he says. “I felt like a failure, a worthless man. Looking back today, there are things I could have done better.”
Robert Burale shares that he should have communicated with his spouse better and spent more quality time with her. And in retrospect, Robert notes that all that would be possible for someone who marries his friend. “It is very important that you marry your friend.
“In the days after a wedding, a newly-wed couple will enjoy the highs of fresh romance. But life soon turns into a boring routine. It is only then that your decision to marry your friend will come in handy!” he says.
Robert, who previously struggled with a strip-club addiction, advises that while you must be open to each other about your past struggles, you should never talk ill about your husband or reveal his dark side to all and sundry.
“Don’t talk ill of or demean your husband in public. You should cover him instead. If you don’t, he is bound to feel belittled, sometimes beyond repair and may very well walk out.”
Robert Burale – Interview
Question: You have been known to give blunt dating advice …
Robert Burale: What I always tell people is please do not try too hard to be perfect; we are imperfect beings. If you try too hard to make everything go perfectly, you will fail. I was at a restaurant once, and I saw a young man who was so nervous, he picked up the saltshaker and licked it, without knowing. I doubt whether the woman ever picked up his call after that.
Do not go to a place that is too expensive just to impress a woman. Always let the lady order first; this way, if she orders a meal worth Sh950, and you only have Sh1,000, you can drink a soda and say you ate earlier.
Question: What is it about people looking bad that turn you off?
Robert Burale: There is nothing worse in this world than getting your image wrong… like the short men I see in town strutting around in pin-stripped suits. It makes me think this man cannot possibly be a deep thinker. Or a woman who wears a short tight skirt that she has to constantly pull down. Goodness! Another one of my pet peeves is a man who keeps his small fingernail long. If that is you, please go to your bedroom and cut it off right now!
Question: Aren’t you being a little hard on people who cannot afford good clothes?
Robert Burale: You do not need to be rich to dress right. The smartest people in town live in Eastlands; they have found ways to combine their outfits fabulously with minimal finances.

Question: Give us a few no-no social stunts …
Robert Burale: If you are a woman who is notorious for walking with toothpicks in your mouth, please stop. It is a great turn off. And as for the men, please shake well after using the bathroom. There is nothing worse than walking back to your desk with a spot on your trousers.

I keep my eyes on God.
Question: Tell us more about that.
Robert Burale: Many people are living lies, especially the so-called celebrities. That is why they are living lives beyond their means. That is why some of them are always broke. I have started a movement called the Naked Truth, where we just get real about who we are and resolve to make the change.
Question: Away from that, how do you juggle all your professions within a day’s schedule?
