Yemi Alade, a well-known singer from Nigeria, has opened up about how her family and friends encourage her to get married.
That makes sense. It’s refreshing to hear someone confidently go against the societal expectations and choose their own timeline for major life events. Marriage and starting a family are personal decisions, and it’s great that she’s standing firm on doing things in her own time. What do you think about it?
“It is difficult to resist family pressure since it comes from individuals I look up to and respect, who are telling me that I should get married. Finding the proper partner is more important than being married, therefore I think if they truly have my best interests at heart, they will be patient with me.
Beyond that, though, I don’t believe someone should hastily choose the wrong spouse to be with.”
