Actress Peju Johnson expresses that she cannot envision her life without being married.
Nollywood star Peju Johnson has expressed her strong desire to marry and begin a family. In an interview with The Punch, she lamented the challenges of finding a good man in today’s society and highlighted the high rate of divorces.
The Yoruba actress confidently stated her belief in finding a life partner with whom she can age gracefully.
“I cannot stay without getting married. I want to be married. I love love, kids and family. I want them all. These days, it is not easy to find a good man and many marriages are falling apart. However, I still believe that there is a man out there for me that I will grow old with.”
Addressing the belief that children would still search for a parent in the future even if they are abandoned by their parents, she said,
“The fact that it works for one person does not mean it would work for others. A lot of parents that abandoned their children are suffering in their old age, simply because they were not there for their children. Parents need to fulfill their responsibilities to their children.”
Speaking about if she could take back a lover who had left her and her children behind, she revealed,
“Yes, I can. But, that is if I have not moved on with another man. It is not easy though, but I can accept him back to father his children. Also, I would be doing it for the kids, and not for him or me. Every child needs their father. However, if I had moved on, I would only accept him for co-parenting; just so the children can have their father in their lives.”
Speaking about her ideal man, Johnson said;
“My ideal man must be loving, dark-complexioned, caring, a good listener, kind, and a man that knows God.”
