Popular reality Tv star and actress, Venita has stated that she is against women getting married before they are 28 years old.
The 37-year-old actress advised young ladies to make the most of their youth and delay getting married just out of love.
Venita, who is a divorcee, offered the counsel during an interview with Tacha, a coworker, on Cool FM’s The Big Friday Show.
The mother of two claims that she would not permit any of her daughters to marry before the age of 28 because, as young women, she believes that they should experience a variety of things and learn about many facets of life before choosing to “get stuck” in the institution known as marriage.
“Don’t marry young o! Don’t go and do “I’m doing high school sweetheart, we die here”, just be young! Be young, enjoy your life. When you’re tired, get married.
Do not marry young, I’m saying ideally — okay if my daughter came and approached me that she was ready to get married, if my daughter approaches me, as long as she’s not I swear to God, not up to 28, we can rock with it. Anything below 28, please no.
Because you’re going to change your mind and you don’t know all of who you are at 20-something. Don’t get me wrong, there are people who are mature oh. But you need to try different things in life, different experiences, to be sure of okay, I want to be stuck here. Because it’s handcuff, you’re there.
Because you’re stuck – that’s the social idea. Unless you’re Westernized like me, then you’re unstuck, you can unstuck yourself. I’m divorced. The ones that are enjoying now, ‘ll probably still reach a time where they’ll probably hate each other and still have to be in the same space.
I’m telling you! Why do you think to say them get madam room and oga room? When the ground is shaking and I need space, I need space. Be in your room, I’ll be in my room. To me, an ideal marriage, my husband would have a wonderful house here, and mine would be over here, and there would be magnificent corridors connecting the two houses.”
