Nollywood actress Susan Peters decided to talk about the difficulties

of relationships and marriage on her Instagram on April 6. is sure her advice will inspire a lot of her

followers. She said:

"I have discovered that love doesn't guarantee the success of a

The actress got married to her Dutch husband Koen Croon back in 2015

and they have been happily married since.
