Nollywood Actress, Ronke Oshodi-Oke, speaks about how her 7 year marriage has been able to weather the storm in the midst of the many celebrity marriage break ups.
Read excerpts from her interview with Christian Agadibe for The Sun:
On the things she has put in place to safeguard her marriage:
I am not saying that my marriage is the best but what is trending now is marriage break-ups. We hear about celebrities because they are in the limelight. Even when I was pregnant, they said ‘Ronke is pregnant.’ Why shouldn’t I be pregnant?
Am I not a woman? If they see me eating with my hands, they would say ‘Ronke is eating with her hands.’ Am I not a Nigerian? Before a man and woman say ‘let us go to the altar,’ they must have given it a lot of thought because they feel that they are compatible. But if something happens and they decide to go their different ways, I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Like my husband and I broke up for almost three years, and when we came back, he said ‘Ronke, this is what we should do now’. I know where I went wrong and he knows where he went wrong too.
On her tolerant limit for a man:
It’s when a man raises up his hand on me. For every other thing, no problem because I am a Yoruba and also an African woman, I have people who are looking up to me. And I want them to listen to me, because when my mother is talking to me, she always gives example of herself.
