Veteran actress Patience Ozokwor has revealed why she did not remarry years after her husband passed on.
Patience Ozokwor revealed during an interview with Mercy Johnson on her kitchen show Mercy’s menu that her kids begged her not to be married again.
Patience revealed that although she married at the age of 19, she lost her husband in 2002 after a protracted illness, turning her a widow.
She said that all of her children were adults who would take care of her and be there for her. She stated that she decided to remain single following her husband’s passing because her kids warned that if she does, their friends might make fun of them.
“I wanted to remarry but my kids had already come of age and they pleaded with me not to marry another man and they promised they will be my husband. They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried and I understood them, though it was selfish of them I paid a huge sacrifice for them, no sacrifice is too huge for the family.”
