Nollywood legend, Patience Ozokwor has advised women battling domestic violence in their marriages to “escape for your dear life.”
The film star spoke about failed marriages during her interview, on a popular TV shw in Lagos.
Ozokwo, who is fondly called Mama G and known for her mother-in-law roles in the movies, also said “God is not against separation, but divorce.”
“God is not against separation. What God doesn’t want is divorce. God is not saying we should not divorce because sometimes he does not know that we have violated – No,” she said.
“Coming from a Christian background, we are not allowed to divorce.
“If you pray and the man turns around to become something else, escape for your dear life. Because it is only those who are alive that can tell the story. When you are dead nobody can tell your story for you.
“For me, marriage is forever till death do us part. That is the way I brought up my children. What we have today baffles me.”
