Ghone Tv’s News editor and ace broadcaster, Nana Aba Anamoah has made it clear that she is getting tired of being asked when she is going to get married. She has constantly lambasted people for incessantly asking her when she is going to get married.
In an interview on Accra FM, Nana Aba of was asked if she used to worry about her single mother status she replied that she does not see a reason why that should be a bother.
The very outspoken sarcastic news anchor quizzed the host;
“Why would I be worried that I am not married? Are you worried that you are not dead?”
It is her opinion that marriage does not guarantee her ultimate happiness.
She further said;
“No one can be forced to get married. I don’t think there is anybody in this world who said that I hate marriage and nobody can also say that everything will be fine when they get married.
If it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. You don’t go around chasing shadows”.
Expressing her displeasure about how society puts unnecessary pressure on women to marry before a certain age, she said;
“I don’t think it’s right for people to disturb anybody with marriage. There are people who are married and they are very happy, and we are also happy for them. Likewise, there are people who are married and they are sad, their life has become worse and we want them out of those marriages”
As Africans marriage is very important to us not just for the normal institution it is, but also for the fulfilment of a certain status! In our society, there’s a greater expectation placed on women to be married at a certain age. As a result, there’s always pressure on especially ladies at a certain age to settle down with a man as in the case of Nana Aba Anamoah.
