Actress Kelechi has given reasons why women should not rush into marriage because they do not want to be ridiculed or taunted for being 29 and unmarried.
Read her series of tweets below.
“It’s absolute trash to taunt someone about being 29 and unmarried when quite a few of you who are married, watch happiness dancing in the garden because it refuses to enter your home.
“Of course I see a lot of dusty pussy girls tweeting similar but I always feel a certain type of way when it’s men tweeting it.
“She’s 29 and unmarried” but who would she marry? You? With the long fingernail on your pinky finger and your unwashed anus? You are not a prize.
“This is why so many women leap into marriage unsure that it’ll be a safe space for them to land. Nobody wants to be ridiculed but just deep the imbalance, men aren’t ridiculed for being 29 and unmarried.
“After you’ve sweated and shouted the lyrics to More Fire Crew “oi” with your boys on the dance floor on your wedding day, what even is marriage to a lot of you?
“Just entering into marriage without interrogating the patriarchal nature of the set-up. Basically somebody is taunting you for not being a man’a property yet. “No! It is about union!” Really? Is it?
“Being goaded into an arrangement that in the long run doesn’t actually benefit you as a woman. Not really in today’s society. But you enter for love right? So let everyone enter at their own time.
““Look at you, over 30 and not married” These times the person talking is wondering why sometimes they’re short of breath when sleeping at night not knowing that out of resentment, their partner wakes up and holds their nose closed for 45 seconds for banter”.
