Patience Ozokwor Gets Candid About Why She Didn’t Remarry After Her Husband’s Demise

Veteran actress Patience Ozokwor has revealed why she did not remarry years after her husband passed on.

According to the mother of four, she got married at age the young age of 19 however, she became a widow in the year 2002 after she lost her husband to a protracted illness. Her late husband was a mechanical engineer before his demise.

The 64-year-old talented movie star explained during her appearance as a guest on Mercy Johnson-Okojie’s cook show, ‘Mercy’s Menu’ that her children are the reason she didn’t remarry after losing her husband.

She added that she actually had the intention of remarrying but her children begged her not to.

Mama G as she’s fondly called, said at the time, her children were all grown-ups and assured to be there for her to fill the vacuum of her late hubby.

She added that her children said their friends might mock them if she remarries, hence she had to succumb to their ‘selfish’ bid to save them from being ridiculed by friends and sacrifice to make her family happy.

The thespian said:

“I wanted to remarry but my kids had already come of age and they pleaded with me not to marry another man and they promised they will be my husband.

They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried and I understood them, though it was selfish of them I paid a huge sacrifice for them, no sacrifice is too huge for the family.”
