Popular Nollywood actor, Stan Nze has opened up on how a lot of his colleagues' failed marriages almost affected his decision of getting married.

In an interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, in Rubbin’ Minds show, he said that when he kept seeing the turmoils most of his colleagues were facing in their respective marriages he began to question his readiness.

According to the actor, he was compelled to go off social media to have a rethink about his decision to marry and his readiness.

He said, “I’ve always wanted my family to be private. My marriage was to be under wraps until my honeymoon but my wife insisted we post a photo so we control any coming narrative. We’d been together for 3 and a half years.

“I want my marriage to work. A week before my marriage, I left social media. There was a lot of news on Instagram. Partners were fighting each other. I was literally palpitating, asking myself if I was ready for marriage.

“These were people I felt they were really in love, some even having dated for seven years. It was important that I married someone in the entertainment industry, whether radio, film, or movies. It’s a delicate industry.

“You need someone that really understands when you’re out late. When she’s out late, I understand and it’s not an issue. It’s not a struggle to be back by 1 am and have a partner who is wondering if there’s lipstick [stain] on you.”
