Could the fear of divorce be responsible for Genevieve Nnaji's bachelorette at 35? -NMN 

In Nigeria, and Africa as a whole, it is arguably every woman's dream to marry the love of their life. However, popular Nollywood actress and CEO of St. Genevieve Fashion Collections, Genevieve Nnaji, who is now 35 years of age; is still very much single and yet to find someone to call her husband.

On The TRUTH's 7th episode this past October, the Host of the show - Olisa Adibua - asked Genevieve Nnaji if she is currently in a relationship. Here's how she responded:

Question: Are you currently in a relationship?

Genevieve: "*Takes a deep breath* I think everyone is prioritizing and so am I. It's not like I don't want to settle down, I want somebody and until I find that person, there's no thought of me settling down. I'm not looking, I'm a woman, we are not allowed to look."

Olisa also asked Genevieve Nnaji the following questions on THE TRUTH....

  • When was the last time you had a boyfriend... do you have one now?

Genevieve answers: "I don't have a boyfriend now" 

  • Ok, so what are you looking for in a man? Olisa asked Genny...

Genevieve answers: "I am that person that eats with her eyes, like I need to be attracted to you. Definitely. There has to be physical attraction that will draw me to you but at the end of the day, it's your mind I'm going to fall in love with. I'm probably looking for a friend, someone who shares a like mind and somebody who is confident. Aww, I love tall guys. I'm short you have to think of the kids."

In another interview recently reported on Vanguard NG, the Imo State-born screen diva and single-mother from Mbaise—revealed that she is still single because she is afraid of divorce. Genevieve's statement in quote:

“If I get married, I really want to stay married and staying married is not an easy thing. It means you are completely in tune with your partner. It means you have found your soulmate because you will have to be able to stand a lot of disappointments that would definitely come but then again you have to learn to forgive”. -Genevieve Nnaji

    I admire her because she is courageous enough to stay alone while waiting for the right one, so many women jump into the hands of a man they do not even love just because they want to get married and show their friends and relatives that they are married.

    Genev is right even many men or women do not know what is means to be married if not good I can get out but that is not the answer, I personally never like any women movies stars reason they smoke, drink alcohol which not what credible man want in any women when they drink mistake will surely come with smoking nobody want that for wife, you famous but there are prices to everything, men will surely come but the same type like them, if the can stop smoking mostly nigeria men will come but foreign men are there who never know values of married or who take marriages as contract what goes is what goes

    Being afraid is not d keying to having a successful marriage. As the saying goes: you are what u think.if you can think a divorce free marriage that is what u will get. This is the law of attraction coming into play here. We tend to attract wat we think. A successful home can only be given by the Him(God) who instituted it. So pls... Trust Him for one. God bless.

    Proper can be a word forged by man who would seek to enslave woman with it and many woman has fall a victim to that so to my own view of understanding, start up a good relationg ship with a man like being good friend and noting more; time will tell cause time is what man can spend with the one they trully love for real!
