BBNaija reality star, Venita Akpofure has explained why she believes ladies should not marry before they are 28 years old.
During an interview with Tacha on Cool FM, Venita advised young ladies below the age of 28 to avoid getting married because she is in love with her boyfriend from school. She advised ladies to enjoy their youth before getting tired down by marriage.
“Don’t marry young o! Don’t go and do “I’m doing high school sweetheart, we die here”, just be young! Be young, enjoy your life. When you’re tired, get married.”
According to Venita, she won’t allow her daughter to get married when she is less than 28 because as a young lady, you need to try different aspects of life with different experiences before deciding to get stuck in the union called marriage.
“Do not marry young, I’m saying ideally — okay if my daughter came and approached me that she was ready to get married, if my daughter approaches me, as long as she’s not I swear to God, not up to 28, we can rock with it. Anything below 28, please no.”
“Because you’re going to change your mind and you don’t know all of who you are at 20-something. Don’t get me wrong, there are people who are mature oh. But you need to try different things in life, different experiences, to be sure of okay, I want to be stuck here. Because it’s handcuff, you’re there.”
“Because you’re stuck – that’s the social idea. Unless you’re Westernized like me, then you’re unstuck, you can unstuck yourself. I’m divorced. The ones that are enjoying now, ‘ll probably still reach a time where they’ll probably hate each other and still have to be in the same space.
“I’m telling you! Why do you think to say them get madam room and oga room? When the ground is shaking and I need space, I need space. Be in your room, I’ll be in my room. To me, an ideal marriage, my husband would have a wonderful house here, and mine would be over here, and there would be magnificent corridors connecting the two houses.”
