On what went wrong with her previous marriage

Let’s just say I had no wisdom at that time, although I wasn’t young when I got married. I guess I was very naïve on many issues of life and it was just foundationally wrong. I wouldn’t blame him or myself, that’s why I don’t demonize my ex. He is a good father to his children, and he is a very quiet man that doesn’t like issues. It is us that didn’t work but we are still friends and our kids have the best of us.

On if she will give marriage another shot

Definitely; when the right man finds me. Being single at my age is very challenging and you never know it until you get there. A lot of people just demonize women that are single. You hear about domestic violence every day, although I never experienced it. If they leave, people demonize them; when they stay, they get battered or their lives don’t move forward. There are many psychological issues that can go on in a person’s life beyond beating. When they die, people start asking why they didn’t leave.

When I find someone that understands me completely and that we can put our hands on each other and make it work, I will definitely give it a shot.

On family

I would like to keep family where it is because one of the mistakes that we make is that we rub our lives in people’s faces. That’s why I’m raising my children away from the limelight. My children don’t have Instagram and Facebook accounts. When they come of age, it’s something they would do on their own because I don’t want them to grow up in the shadow of their mother. I want them to be able to have their own identity. My four children have different characters and I’m not going to force my own lifestyle on them.
