Elsie Okpocha, the estranged wife of comedian Basketmouth, has issued a statement to those who criticize their marriage.
The mother of three took to Instagram to warn people not to shame unmarried women. Elsie observed how ladies and women are shamed for having late marriages and having late children.
Despite its beauty, the newly divorced woman revealed that marriage is difficult because it requires hard work.
“It’s only in this part of this world that people make a big fuss about a woman not being married at a certain age.
U hear questions like ‘Aunty why are you not married?’ Is she going to marry herself, Elsie queried.
She added that, “People even go as far as suggesting for one to give birth.
When a woman isn’t married is because she is taking time or hasn’t found the right one”.
Touching on marriage, she said, “Marriage can be tough as beautiful as it can be. It requires hardwork”.
