Nollywood actress, Nnenna Nwabueze–Okonta who is fondly called Merit,  disappeared from the screen immediately after Living in Bondage was released into the market in 1992.

 She has a sweet-bitter story of her journey into marriage, now that she is a widow and back to Nollywood.

She  met her husband for the first time in 1994, had their  introduction party in Lagos, and the popularity of the pioneering film, “Living in Bondage”, was all over the place and people from all walks of life attended their traditional marriage ceremony.

“We had our challenges. But the good times as well as the bad times we had together made our marriage worthwhile. When we got married, we faced a lot of challenges: cultural,emotional and personality differences. But we were determined to make the marriage work. I miss him so much.” She revealed

She said “Like I told you earlier, there was no courtship. So, after we got married, I needed to know him better. That was when I realized he was a very jealous and possessive person. He wanted me all to himself all the time and, if I had not valued my relationship with my husband, I would have had a broken home. As demanding as my job was then, I made a decision to sacrifice it in order to build my marriage and I am not regretting it. I would say I abandoned acting to solidify my marriage”
