Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic has said she will not allow pressure to make her take a wrong marital decision.
The fashionable actress in an interview with Chude Jideonwo said: “I respect the institution of marriage. My parents were married and they were close till they both passed on.
That is why I have always said to myself― I will not let the pressure get to me and make a mistake. I want to do it and stay in it forever.
So I want to be sure. You can’t really be too sure, but at least (I want to be) as sure as it’s reasonably possible.
“I always tell people that the wedding is nice but it is the marriage that is important. After the event is over, how would one feel about one’s spouse in the next 10 years?
That has always been very important to me. I watched my parents be in love, grow old together and they were friends.
There is no marriage that is easy. They had their shortcomings but they loved themselves till they died. They were that close that when my mother died, my dad never recovered from it. They were so close.
As a matter of fact, he fell ill and just deteriorated. That was because of how close they were. I admire that and that is what I want for myself”.
