Nollywood veteran Patience Ozokwor has disclosed why she wouldn't advise women to leave their husbands who have been unfaithful to them.
Mama G (as she is fondly called) spoke on the issue during a recent appearance on colleague Mercy Johnson's cooking show 'Mercy's Menu'.
Ozokwor stated that she would not encourage anyone to leave their marriage for a 'visitor'.
“Would you advise anyone to leave if there’s infidelity?” Mercy asked her older colleague.
“Me, I’m not going to leave my house for anybody, you are the visitor that came in. Find your way out”, Ozokwor replied.
“I will so hold my family, so polish it, and sweep out all the debts, and then had a peaceful home again.”
Mercy further quizzed; “Even when the infidelity is constant?”
“If infidelity is constant, it is the one that is an infidel that should go out. I’m not leaving my house for anybody,", came the response.
Speaking further, Ozokwor shared that while she does not support divorce, she sees nothing wrong with separation.
“God is not against separation. What God doesn’t want is divorce. God is not saying we should not divorce because sometimes he does not know that we have violated – No,” she said.
“Coming from a Christian background, we are not allowed to divorce.
“If you pray and the man turns around to become something else, escape for dear life because it is only those who are alive that can tell the story. When you are dead, nobody can tell your story for you.
“For me, marriage is forever till death do us part. That is the way I brought up my children. What we have today baffles me.
“I feel for the children that they’re giving birth to because I don’t know how they would learn something better from their parents”, she added.
