‘If You Rush In, You Will Rush Out’, Funke Akindele Advises Ladies on Marriage

Nigerian women have been urged to take their time before getting married.

Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, gave the advice in an interview with media personality Chude Jidenowo.

She encouraged them not to rush into marriage due to societal pressures.

She said she wanted to settle down and have children because she was under pressure, but regrettably, the marriage dissolved after a year.

She narrated how she overcame that period by focusing solely on her work as a distraction.

She said: “I have never addressed this issue, but I will do now to encourage ladies that are pressured to get married. Please calm down and take your time because if you rush in, you rush out. That is the lesson learnt.

“You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that. When I went into the (first) marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way.

“On social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming, and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die!

“You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it break me.
As a young lady out there, do not be pressured to get married.

“Get married because you want to get married, because you love him, and you want to spend the rest of your life with him.

“Don’t get married because mummy and daddy are saying get married or your friend just got married, have children because you want to have children, you want to be blessed with children, you love children.”
