Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha also known as Igwe Tupac, has said that the idea of longtime couples getting divorced after years gives him a scare about marriage.
The father-of-two said he is yet to settle down because he is taking his time to find the right woman who will be a mother to his kids.
Charles Okocha who noted that he has never been married before, made reference to how couples that many people see as role models split after decades of marriage and it leaves him wondering how he is going into the institution.
He also said that he is focused on taking care of his two children for now until he finds a worthy woman who can take care of them.
Speaking in an interview with The Punch, Okocha said; “The truth is I have never been married in my life and I am a happy man. You and I know what is going on these days, you see a couple married for a couple of years and next, they are divorced.
People you see as role models are getting divorced and when you see them you are like what is going on? These are people you have been looking up to and now they are divorced, how then do you want me to get into this marriage thing?
Some say I am not going to get married. No! Don’t quote me wrong, I am going to get married most definitely, my kids are growing up, and so I need a partner that will be able to take care of their needs and mine. I will get married, but I am just taking my time.
I have two beautiful kids; a son and a daughter. At this time I am just focused on taking care of my adorable kids and that’s it, and that’s enough. They are my kids and they keep me motivated.”
