“I don’t believe in marriage” – Mellisa Osagie reveals
Mellisa Osagie, a Nigerian actress has shared her views on marriage and the possibility of having children out of wedlock.
Osagie revealed in an interview she did with Saturday Beats that she prefers friendship over marriage. She also said that she was almost married, but ultimately decided not to.
The actress said;
“I do not believe in the idea of marriage. I was almost married but I called it off. I believe in the idea of companionship. If one is compatible with one’s partner, one does not need a ring to show that one is committed. It does not validate the marriage.”
She also expressed her opinion on the recommendation for older women to bear children outside of marriage when a union is not probable.
“Marriage as an institution has to do with bearing kids. Marriage or no marriage, it is very important for one to have a child. If not for now, at least for old age; even if it has to be done through surrogacy.”
