Blessing Jessica Obasi now Mrs. Nze said in a recent interview with Vanguard Allure, when asked to weigh between age and love because marrying a young lover must have been quite a tough decision for her.

She affirmed that, ” Age is just a number, and that what matters is the two hearts that beat as one. I never saw marrying a colleague coming my way. Absolutely not.

Never. I never would have imagined that I’d get married to my colleague or even anyone in entertainment because I used to think men in entertainment industry cannot stay with one woman, that they are cheats

I saw them as promiscuous people and so I never saw it coming at all.”

When she was asked to mention three things, she would like to change about her husband, Mrs Nze said, “well, I’d say absolutely nothing. I’m happy with the peace that I enjoy with my husband and he is a man that daily strives to be better. I’m not aiming at changing anything, absolutely nothing.”

Blessing Obasi, reveals her greatest fear as a woman who is married, she said, “When people get married, they get so comfortable.

It feels like a box that has been ticked but they are not really interested in servicing it as such.

You have ticked the box and you have moved on so what else? So, I think my greatest fear will be not really nurturing my home, keeping and building my home to be that place I always want to come back to and make it a safe place for my husband.

Sometimes, you see some couples fight like enemies and you begin to question why because, they used to be in love. So, what went wrong?Like my husband will always say, this one that this love is just doing us, hope tomorrow we would not later say ‘go to your tent O Isreal’ and I just say, ”we don’t need to work too hard to make this thing, we are already here.” And the next thing would be motherhood, that’s what the world expects of you.

With all these fears that will come because I’m a human being, I put all my trust in God because he is our foundation, He’s our essence, He’s everything to us and no matter how tough things get, ‘las las’ I go back to Him to say, God, you are the foundation of this thing, this home and this marriage was built upon the solid rock which is, you, Jesus Christ and you alone will teach and navigate this journey with me. So, I’m taking it one day at a time asking the Holy Spirit to help me.”
