Why I didn’t marry early- Nollywood actress


The Nollywood actress Blessing Obasi, who wed her younger colleague Stan Nze, has shared her thoughts on the challenges of getting married later in life.

According to report, the actress said on her Instagram page that she didn’t simply decide to marry at a later age.

Blessing states that, it was a journey of self-awareness, resiliency, and liberating herself from social conventions that sought to control her happiness.

According to her, the shame and pressure associated with marriage are like unwanted shadows that cast long, lonely evenings and murmur misgivings.

But in those times of loneliness, she found courage and discovered that marriage is not a badge of honour for achieving success in life, nor is love a race.

She wrote, “You know, I had to jump on this conversation because, after several years of feeling like an outsider in a world that often equates a woman’s worth with her marital status, I’ve finally stepped into a chapter that I crafted on my own terms.

“Getting married at an older age wasn’t just a choice; it was a journey of self-discovery, resilience, and breaking free from societal norms that tried to dictate my happiness.

“The pressure and stigma were like unwelcome shadows, whispering doubts and casting long, lonely nights. But in those moments of solitude, I found strength. I learned that love isn’t a race, nor is marriage a trophy for early achievement. It’s about finding someone who understands the chapters of your past and wants to write the future ones with you.

“So here I am, not a bride of youthful naivety, but a woman adorned in the wisdom of her years, ready to embark on a shared journey of love, respect, and partnership. And to those still walking their path, remember: your life, your pace, your story. Embrace it.
