For daily inspiration and life lessons follow our new inspiring instagram page – @dearyoungnaijawoman



Nollywood producer, Ada Slim desired to be married at 28 but life happened and she had to wait for 5 years. Last year, Ada got married to her husband at 33.

Listing all her other achievements before she got married, Ada said she was desperately waiting and was about going for her Ph.D when she met her husband. So, for her, marriage is an achievement especially because she desires to have children and her biological clock is ticking.

She wrote,

I officially welcome you to 2019! Year of fulfillment for us all!
I thank God for the gift of life & health in 2018, my BEST yr so far.
As Alexx Ekubo say make we dey talk our truth in 2019, oya here is my most profound & vulnerable public post ever.
2018 I got married in full to the most perfect man on earth!
Wow that’s a great “ACHIEVEMENT”
YES marriage is an achievement for me!
I set my alarm clock for yr 28th but God’s time is the best, desperately waiting for extra 5yrs was somewhat overwhelming
Not 100% fulfilled but I still feel lucky & blessed;
Better half-caste like me ….Born American citizen & raised full Naija style;
built my own house in my 20’s;
still hussling hard for greater career goals in my 30’s;
yet to buy my dream car before 40;
taking care of a couple of orphans & less privileged kids;
made blockbuster movies with the topmost A-Lists in Nollywoood; bagged my Masters degree from the best University in Newyork; was abt to grab my PHD in same Uni but the “Perfect Husband Degree” found me instead 🙈…I was tired of being single 😜.

Nevertheless, a private jet & a home in Ikoyi won’t hurt, but 1st, the kids to rock them with & a father figure for them, as an authentic traditional, conservative, religious, native Nwafo Igbo…ohh my ovaries…can’t wait to have my 1st biological child with my 1st Love in my 1st marriage 🙏
For all my mature single Divas praying to God for same “Achievement” 2019 is your year! .

For my under 20s who set their alarm clock for 28/29, pls move it backwards oh….don’t repeat my mistake cos….husband is not like money in the bank that you withdraw at Will, once you clock 30+ odikwa very very risky ooh, those eggs don’t wait for no slayer; consider dating time, wedding planning time, pregnancy time….you might be fast approaching 35 b4 having ur 1st child….May 2019 I will be 34, U see…hopefully, my 1st child b4 I’m 35😳
I knw age is nothing but a number but not for those eggs….I personally lowkey admire Mercy Aigbe, Omotola, Iyabo Ojo & others who just turned 40 but already blessed with teen seeds….I know they had their own trials too by starting so early, but dear lil ones, you can meet us halfway💋

    One Man’s meat’, another man’s poison. Kikikikikikiki. Don’t mind them, let them be shouting that marriage is not an achievement while the clock keeps ticking. You have gotten ur 1st PhD. Don’t worry you can get the second anytime!

    Marriage and children is a thing of personal choice. No amount of talk and advice is going to change that. So If you got married at 3 or 45, its a choice and whether its an achievement or not is still a choice. It clearly is an achievement for you, for me, it isn’t.

    I feel it’s only an achievement after some years not immediately you get marriage, can you say your marriage is happy and loving after 10 years, if it is, then it’s a great achievement

    Marriage has always been a choice. If u see it as an achievement it is based on ur own perspective but marriage has always been a choice. I might decide to get married at early age and up not achieving anything both children and other things included but one gets married at 40 or 50 and has everything he or she needed to build up a home. It can never be an achievement rather a chosen choice we intend to make in our lives. Even d bible never made marriage a compulsory but nowadays we intend to quote everything to bible. My opinion is that marriage is never an achievement rather a choice.

    I don’t think she asked anybody’s opinion on this,to her it is an achievement, can she at least enjoy that in peace.
