Marriage in simple definition is the coming together of a man and a woman as husband and wife.
However, there are some people who simply don’t believe in the idea or institution called marriage. They enjoy and prefer their single status. They may even believe in the marriage institution but prefer not to get into it.
A lot of factors could be responsible for the decision to remain single. Some have tested marriage and come out of the marriage institution while some have not even tested it at all.
While the decision on whether to marry or not remains a personal decision, some people’s lives are more exposed to public scrutiny than others.
These Nollywood stars fall into the category of people whose lives are exposed to public scrutiny. Fans and non-fans alike are usually interested in what they do or don’t do, in fact, their opinions and views shape or influence the behaviour of some people in society.
Though these stars have a right to their private lives, fans are always interested in knowing what’s going on in their worlds.
