I Suffered Societal Stigma Over Late Marriage – Stan Nze’s Wife, Blessing
The spouse of actor Stan Nze, Blessing Obasi, has lamented how the society stigmatised against her because she married late.
The woman, who was emotional in her text on her Instagram page, decried how the society placed the importance and worth of a woman on her marital status.
Using herself as an example, Obasi noted that some women deliberately marry at an older age to enable them discover themselves fully, not minding what the society feels about their decision.
Obasi described the pressure and stigma she encountered as burdensome shadows that haunted her, yet in moments of solitude, she found the strength to persevere.
In her words, “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.
