The pressure on men and especially women to marry when you get to a certain age can be unbearable.
People should not be put under undue pressure when it comes to choosing your life partner.
Sometimes marriage is not how fast you go into it but how well.
“I believe that God is in charge of my life and will present the right man to me at the right time,” she said.
Asked whether social pressure to settle down get to her, Rita replied,
“I am a human being and I would be lying to say that it doesn’t sometimes. More so because it’s something I sincerely want to do but the feeling passes when I remember that society will not live with the person. I will live with the man, so it is very important that I do it because I want to, not because society wants it for me.”Speaking about sex and if it gets better with age, Rita said;
“If you ordinarily don’t enjoy it, age won’t make a difference. I find that when a woman embraces her sexuality, many Nigerians equate it to being Ashewo , as if we should act like sex is not pleasurable,”
Speaking about dating, Rita said she dates when someone special comes around but finds it generally as a nightmare
“especially in this days of social media where with one click you are all over the internet.”
She also admits that she loves being in a relationship;
“I love being totally drawn to someone and doing all those loving things couples do, but I am also wary of liars and bullies”
