Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele-Bello has come out to advise single ladies to take their time before getting married. She recently revealed this during a media interview, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, single ladies should never feel pressured before getting married before she is a living example of why this is very important.
Funke Akindele-Bello added that she actually lost some good deals after her marriage but the experience never broke her.
Her words, ”Calm down. Take your time. If you rush in, you would rush out. Lesson learnt. I a not trying to drag anybody. I am going to talk about me.
“You know I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that pressure. And I went into the (first) marriage, it didn’t work fine. God bless everybody. Everybody is doing well and it ended in a very bad way, on social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die!”
“You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it’s break me.”
”As a young lady out there, do not be pressured to get married. Get married because you want to get married, get married because you love him, you want to spend the rest of your life with him. Don’t get married because mummy and daddy are saying get married or your friend just got married, have children because you want to have children, you want to be blessed with children, you love children.”
“Don’t have children because the society will say “ah she’s barren ohh, 12 years 6 years e never marry” ignore the gossips, ignore the naysayers, give them “sorry the middle finger, I don’t care”. Yes, ignore because you have your life, do what makes you happy.”
