Don’t marry a man you are not in love with – Angela Okorie

Nollywood actress, Angela Okorie has said it is not a wise decision for a woman to agree to marry a man she does not love.

Angela stated this in a podcast episode with colleague, Iyabo Ojo, while disclosing that it is one of the major reason a lot of women cheat on their partner.

The 48-year-old mother of one said she dumped her husband, Chukwuma Orizu because she “fell out of love.”

According to the actress, she got tired of marriage because of pressure from her husband’s family who were constantly asking her to quit acting.

She said, “I won’t advise anybody to be in a marriage when you’re not in love with the man. I think that’s the reason a lot of women cheat. In this Lekki, you have too many women who cheat in their marriages.

“For me, I fell out of love. The man [my ex-husband] was a good man. I fell out of love because of what his family was doing. The family didn’t want me to continue acting. They didn’t want me to do anything acting. They were like, ‘If we are going to marry you, you’ll stop doing entertainment.’ And I will be like, ‘Even my mum can’t even stop me. That is my life. Do you know how many years it took me?’

“He [my ex-husband] was in support of me. He doesn’t even stress me but because of the whole saga, it was like I was in a place where the people didn’t even understand my vision. They don’t understand what I’m chasing.

“You need to chase it with me. This is what your wife wants. You can’t kill my dream. This is what I’ve worked for so many years to get here. So, you can’t just wake up and say, “Because you want to marry me, give up on my dreams.”
