The Nigerian actress, Patience Ozokwo, has issued an important advice to women.
She advised women battling domestic violence in their marriages to “escape for your dear life.”
The film star spoke about failed marriages during the latest edition of Mercy’s Menu, a cooking show by Mercy Johnson Okojie.
Ozokwo, who is fondly called Mama G and known for her mother-in-law roles in the movies, also said “God is not against separation, but divorce.”
“God is not against separation. What God doesn’t want is divorce. God is not saying we should not divorce because sometimes he does not know that we have violated – No,” she said.
“Coming from a Christian background, we are not allowed to divorce.
“If you pray and the man turns around to become something else, escape for your dear life. Because it is only those who are alive that can tell the story. When you are dead nobody can tell your story for you.
“For me, marriage is forever till death do us part. That is the way I brought up my children. What we have today baffles me.
“I feel for the children that they’re giving birth to because I don’t know how they would learn something better from their parents.”
In March 2021, the ace actress expressed her concerns over the way people divorce in contemporary marriages.
She said she fears what the younger generation is learning from their parents.
