Veteran Nollywood actress Patience Ozokwor has revealed why she did not remarry after the death of her late husband and the father of her four children.
The versatile thespian opened up during her chat with actress Mercy Johnson on this week’s edition of her weekly cook show titled, Mercy’s Menu.
According to Patience Ozokwor, she wanted to re-marry but it was too late because my children were already grown and they pleaded with her to remain a widow.
During the show, Mercy Johson asked Patience Ozokwor: “You are a mom, you are married, you lost your husband. What was that like, plus, why did you never remarry? Because we have many women particularly online asking. They say “I can’t do this, I can’t do that, it’s a taboo, I have to remain this way”. Was that a personal decision for you and if you wanted to, would you have, and why didn’t you?”
Patience Ozokwo replied saying; ”I actually wanted to re-marry but it was too late because my children were already grown and they pleaded with me and said “we know why you want to remarry but we want to ask you to please stay for us, we are going to be your husband that will take good care of you. Because we are all grown, so that our friends will not laugh at us at our age, our mother had to go and re-marry”. It looks like they were selfish, but I understood why they did it. And it worked fine for me. So I decided not to re-marry. It is a huge sacrifice, but there is no sacrifice too huge for the family”.
