Anita Joseph, a well-known Nollywood actress, responds to internet trolls’ repeated wishes for her marriage to break apart.
Critics have been on their case ever since the thespian and MC Fish became married, especially whenever a celebrity marriage fails.
Anita recently admitted in an interview with The Sun Newspapers that the pressure to keep going despite the possibility of losing her marriage is actually what keeps her going.
Speaking about the approach adopted, the curvy actress said that she has since been aided by her mother’s instructions on maintaining a marriage.
“Whenever, a colleague’s marriage crash, these online trolls will come to face me. One told me recently that it is remaining me. However, I feel pity for the people dragging me because they are giving me more reasons to post more romantic moments with my husband on social media.
They won’t ever stop me from posting my happy moments, never. Celebrity marriage is not easy, we face a lot of pressure out there but you must be stubborn and insist that yours works.
Again, I knew what I wanted before going into marriage; and what my mother taught me about marriage is still imbedded in me. She taught me to always shut up when my husband is talking and not to talk back; especially in arguments.
Two captains can’t be in one ship. Not like you can’t say your piece but there’s a time to pause and let him talk. These things are not easy but for two to work you must agree,” she told The Sun Newspapers
Anita Joseph iterated that age is just a number when she was queried about her choice for a man 10 year younger than her.
“When people try to mock me by saying I married a younger lover, I just laugh. It is very hilarious. You know people assume a lot, because I’m plumpy and he’s slim that’s why they feel that way, but it’s cool, we don’t care.
Now is the age that is their problem while some of them don’t even have a working relationship. Some can’t keep a man for 2 months. They can continue talking, while we enjoy our marriage. His grace has kept us no regrets at all.”
