Top Nigerian actress Rita Dominic has revealed that she is not yet married because she has not met the right man to tie the knot with.
The 41-year-old said she had dated in the past but the relationship “did not work out”.
“I sincerely want to be married 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,” Ms Dominc told Schick Magazine in a recent exclusive interview.
“I believe that God is in charge of my life and will present the right man to me at the right time,” said Ms Dominic.
Ms Dominic debunked a belief held by sections that the more a woman ages, the more she is likely not to enjoy sex (in a union setting).
“If you ordinarily don’t enjoy it, age won’t make a difference,” she said, adding: “I find that when a woman embraces her sexuality, many Nigerians equate it to being (an) Ashawo (prostitute) as if we should act like sex is not pleasurable.”
Describing dating as a “nightmare” for her, Ms Dominic said: “… especially in these days of social media where with one click you are all over the internet. I do date when someone special comes around. I love being totally drawn to someone and doing all those loving things couples do, but I am also wary of liars and bullies.”
