Nigeria’s Celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji has said that she is fed up of being constantly pushed by “family and friends” to get married.
She recently spoke on the subject, ‘Pressure To Marry Before 30′, with two other women in a feature on Genevieve Magazine.
“Marriage is not an achievement. There is so much more to life than being someone’s wife,” Ikeji said defiantly while also underscoring the importance of settling down.
“Get married please, but don’t be pressured into it.”
Explaining from her personal experience, Linda said: “I don’t know how many of you single girls are under pressure to get married but I am. Pressure from family, friends and people who just can’t mind their business.
“The pressure is so intense right now I feel like going to husband market – if there is any such thing – to buy myself some breathing space. Give me a break, you people.”
