However, the reality star’s most recent comments appear to have sparked further criticism. Even more, Marques was called a “red flag” by the social media users.
Why Marques Houston doesn’t prefer women his own age?
Recently, the reality star talked about his feelings about Dating someone his own age. Marques stated in a recent interview that ladies his own age carry too much “baggage.” He stated, “A red flag to me was always with a woman that had a kid,”. “Nothing against single women, but single mothers with children are a red flag for me.”
He further added, “I would talk to my dad a lot, and he would always tell me to have your own kids because you never know what the baby daddy’s are about,”. “So if you’re gonna have kids, make sure it is with a woman that never had kids. So that was always my red flag… and a woman with an attitude. I don’t like women with funky attitudes.”I’m 41, she is 22. I could’ve married a 44-year-old woman, and it could’ve been disastrous.” Marques said, “They are very like, ‘I don’t need a man to do this for me ’cause I can do it for myself.’
