Popular Nollywood actress, Mary Njoku has carpeted those who are always putting pressure on single ladies to get married, as if settling down with a man is a life time achievement. She made this observation via her Instagram post.

According to Njoku, a lot of married women are not happy in their marriages, yet the society puts pressure on the singles to get married. According to the actress, a lot of couples pretend to be happy in their marriages because of societal pressure and expectations; they are just weary of what the society thinks.

She wrote, “Dear married women. Enough! Marriage is not an achievement. Finding the RIGHT partner is.

“Give the singles space to make the biggest decisions of their lives and find GOOD partners in peace. Over 60% of couples claim happiness often because of societal expectations. That was how Ifeoma was pushed to marry nonsense. Every weekend na hospital appointment for black eye, and spiritual warfare against physical side chicks.

“Yet she is among those trolling single girls for the same marriage. Rest Biko. Focus on the economy! And Let the singles breathe.”
