Patience Ozokwor Reveals How Her Parents Forced Her Into Marriage When She Was 19 (Video)
Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor who recently became an evangelist, in a chat with Ghana television station, RTV, has opened up on how she was forced into marriage by her parents at the age of 19.
Ozokwor, fondly called ‘Mama G’, who said as a child born into a polygamous family, her mother was eager to see her get married before other children, also said she did not see any reason why her parents were forcing her into marriage
The actress said;
“It was not my decision [to get married at 19]. And if it’s not my decision it means I was forced into it.
“I was forced into it many years ago, and I did not see any reason my parents were forcing me as I was still young.
“And even at that age I had so many suitors. You know when you come from a polygamous family and your mother is struggling for her own daughters to get married and this other one is also struggling for her own daughters to get married and when this one [suitor] came around and my mother said go and I could not make a choice. I was not allowed to make a choice.
At the end, I had to obey my parents.
“I was not brought up to disobey them at all.
When asked if she enjoyed the marriage after she obliged her parents push, she added, “Sincerely speaking as a Christian I did not. The marriage was not easy at all for me as a young girl, it was not easy.”
Patience, who further advised women to remain in their matrimonial homes no matter what, said no matter all she went through in the marriage she had to stay on because her parents eyes were on her and could not jump from one man to the other.
