#CELEBRITY NEWS:Thank God My Marriage Didn’t Hold-Rita Dominic
Rita Uchenna Dominic Nwaturuocha, Nollywood actress and producer, has revealed that she almost got married at some point in her life.
The actress made this known during a programme which aired on TVC on Friday.
She said in hindsight, she is happy the marriage did not work out.
The ’76’ star said rather than bowing to societal pressure, she will marry the “man of her dreams” but in her own time.
“What if it’s the society that something is wrong with for thinking that way, for forcing someone to do what they don’t want to do or forcing them to do what they want to do but in their (society’s) own time?”
Dominic said when in a relationship, partners should at best find a way to live with each other, instead of trying to change negative traits.
“I almost married someone. We were there. We were at that point. It didn’t work out and I’m happy it didn’t work out because I saw the signs,” she said.
“You know how you see the signs and you just ignore it hoping the person will change. Look, a grown man and a grown woman cannot change. They can find a way to live with each other and respect each other’s feelings—but to change a grown person is difficult.”
In your own view, do you think it’s good to bow to societal pressure when it comes to marriage?
