The Pressure and Stigma Was Too Much



Blessing Obasi, wife of actor Stan Nze has narrated her experience getting married at an older age.


She said the stigma and pressure was too much for her to bear.


She spoke via her Instagram page.


In her words:


“You know, I had to jump on this conversation because after several years of feeling like an outsider in a world that often equates a woman’s worth with her marital status, I’ve finally stepped into a chapter that I crafted on my own terms.


Getting married at an older age wasn’t just a choice; it was a journey of self-discovery, resilience, and breaking free from societal norms that tried to dictate my happiness.


The pressure and stigma were like unwelcome shadows, whispering doubts and casting long, lonely nights. But in those moments of solitude, I found strength. I learned that love isn’t a race, nor is marriage a trophy for early achievement. It’s about finding someone who understands the chapters of your past and wants to write the future ones with you.


So here I am, not a bride of youthful naivety, but a woman adorned in the wisdom of her years, ready to embark on a shared journey of love, respect, and partnership. And to those still walking their path, remember: your life, your pace, your story. Embrace it.


Thank you @joysoapng_ for giving your platform for these conversations to be had. We see you seeing us.”
