“Don’t marry because of physical appearance or material things. Let there be something you cannot explain,” a popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has advised ladies who are getting confused on who to spend the rest of their lives with.
The single mother of two also spoke on why marriages of some celebrities do not last and why they often go for divorce.
Iyabo Ojo, who has a production house as well as a spa in Lagos, explained that divorce is not peculiar to entertainers, noting that it cuts across every sectors and professions.
She advised her colleagues in the showbiz industry to look well before jumping into the arms of a man. The actress said female stars should not because of love lie to their spouses about leaving the industry when they do not sincerely intend to do so.
The actress advised ladies to take time to careful study each other, noting that it is good to marry a tolerant person because of difference in backgrounds.
Using herself as example, she said, ‘I married a man I did not court; I was not even acting then. I married a man that his way of life is totally different from mine, I was 21 and he was 30. With much challenges I asked myself if I wanted this; marriage is choice, I had to make a decision because no one will be there to mourn with me.’© 2014Nigeriafilms.com
