Popular Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic has opened up on why her marriage plans failed to work out months after it was speculate that she was going to get married anytime soon.
The 45-year-old veteran actress revealed that she almost married someone a long time ago but it did not work out.
She added that she is happy the relationship did not work due to the fact that she had noticed some red flags she refused to see when she was in the relationship.
She said: “I almost married someone. We were there. We were at that point. It didn’t work out and I’m happy it didn’t work out because I saw the signs.
You know how you see the signs and you just ignore it hoping the person will change. Look, a grown man and a grown woman cannot change. They can find a way to live with each other and respect each other’s feelings, but to change a grown person is difficult.”
Dominic said: “At the end of the day if I’m going to do it, I’m doing it for myself not that the society wants me to do it. I always will still say; I will marry the man of my dreams and not the man the society dreams for me.
Society feels there’s something wrong with you if you’re a certain age and you’re not married. What if it’s the society something is wrong with? Forcing someone to do what they don’t want to do?”
The actress also shared her opinion on the evolution of the Nigerian movie industry. She revealed that she is glad that there younger actors and actresses who help the industry evolve.
