Veteran Nigerian actress Rita Dominic maybe 43 years old but the lady says she is no hurry to get married and does not share in the misconstrued perception society holds that a woman is never complete or successful until she is married.
According to Dominic, she nearly married some time ago but for whatever reasons, she never did and she is happy she did not as the signs were all clear.
In an interview with TVC, the actress said; “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.
“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.”
“We feel that a woman’s success isn’t complete until she’s married and with children, that what has been the pressure concerning being married and why hasn’t it happened?.
“At the end of the day, if I’m going to do it, I’m doing it for myself not that the society wants me to do it. I always will still say; I will marry the man of my dreams and not the man the society dreams for me”.
“Society feels there’s something wrong with you if you’re a certain age and you’re not married. What if it’s the society something is wrong with? For forcing someone to do what they don’t want to do?” She queried.
