Nollywood actress and producer, Rita Dominic on Friday revealed that she almost got married at some point in her life but thankfully, the marriage did not materialise, she said.
The actress made the revelation in a programme that was aired on TVC.
The Nollywood actress said she will marry the “man of her dreams” in her own time, but will not bow to societal pressure.
“I will marry the man of my dreams and not the man society dreams for me,” she said.
“Society feels that there is something wrong with you if you’re a certain age and you’re not married.
“What if it’s the society that something is wrong with for thinking that way, for forcing someone to do what they don’t want to do or forcing them to do what they want to do but in their (society’s) own time?”
“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,” she said.
“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.”
