HIS PRINCIPLES

In an interview with "NeCole," where the actor spoke about a recent series he was working on called "Monogamy," he revealed that one thing that has kept him going is the principle of self-control.

Wesley also stated that when a person understands self-control and discipline, then one can navigate through the problems of life.

Also, he spoke about his stance on marriage, stating that monogamy is a natural process and that when a marriage becomes more than one person, then it becomes crowded. He also revealed that:

"Our imperfect impulses have us looking at others, and that's being greedy and not having any self-control and losing the value in what you have."

In all of these, it is interesting to note that one of the 41-year-old actor's deal-breakers when meeting new people is smoking. He acknowledges that finding out someone he is meeting for the first time smokes is a big turn off.

Wesley Jonathan has gone on to do well for himself and it is wonderful to watch him grow from little Grant to a husband, father and successful man in his own rights.
