The media threw their fair share of insult for my late marriage – Rita Dominic


A popular Nollywood actress Rita Dominic has shared a tale of how she was trolled by the media and people in the environment for her late marriage.

People’s minds are always wondering so has it wondered over the personal life of Rita who before in a single life was chastised for wasting time on marriage even though they saw her flamboyant in the movie industry but the wondering minds of people also rebuked her again for marrying late.

Perhaps the roles she plays in her movies reflect her personal life as she labels herself brave for being able to withstand the criticism of people on social media.

“In April of 2022, my sweetheart, my husband, traveled down to my state to marry me. Traditionally, my story about finding love for and ultimately marrying a man I love at an age that most Africans consider old was vigorously disgusted, to my amusement, on social media pages.

“For years, I was hounded with ‘When are you going to marry? You are old.’ And I will often brush it off. No one deserves to be subjected to such indignity based on outdated societal norms.

“It took a lot of courage to go through all those years of having to deal with snide remarks about my marital status as if it’s your business,” she stated while speaking at the Women of Volour programme organized by Nana Aba Anamoah

Rita Dominic is now married and let’s hope she does not hand her life to people on social media by posting her every detail.
