Veteran actress Patience Ozokwor marked the first part of 2018 in style as she took time to visit her lovely family in United Kingdom.
She had revealed in an interview back in 2017 that due to the fact she was forced into early marriage at age 19, she was deprived her chance of conjugal bliss.
She revealed that her mother wanted her to get married on time as she was from a polygamous home.
In an interview with a Ghana television station, RTV, she said,
“It was not my decision to get married at 19. And if it’s not my decision it means I was forced into it.
I was forced into it many years ago, and I did not see any reason my parents were forcing me as I was still young.
And even at that age, I had so many suitors. You know when you come from a polygamous family and your mother is struggling for her own daughters to get married and this other one is also struggling for her own daughters to get married and when this one [suitor] came around and my mother said go and I could not make a choice. I was not allowed to make a choice.
At the end, I had to obey my parents. I was not brought up to disobey them at all.”
When asked if she enjoyed the marriage after she obliged her parents push, she added, “Sincerely speaking as a Christian I did not. The marriage was not easy at all for me as a young girl, it was not easy.”
She said no matter all she went through in the marriage she had to stay on because her parents eyes were on her and she could not jump from one man to the other.
