Marriage is overrated, too much pressure - Monalisa Stephen

Media personality and actress, Monalisa Stephen, has stated that Marriage is overrated and she doesn't think anybody should be subjected to that much pressure.

She disclosed this in an interview with Sunday Scoop.

According to Stephen, two people who love each other shouldn't be bound by a ring before they know they want to spend the rest of their lives together.

" "I don't believe that two people should be bound together by a ring. If you love someone, you don't have to be married to that person for you to show that you are in love.

"There are a lot of couples living together who are not married and their relationship is blissful.

"I think marriage is overrated, so people shouldn't put ladies or men under the pressure of getting married. Marriage is a good thing but it is not a necessity or a do-or-die affair.

"If a lot of people think like this, there would be less pressure or death for people trying to keep their marriages.

"My family has not been taking it easy with me over my school of thought but it is my life at the end of the day."

Speaking on public opinion that plus-size girls are lazy when it comes to sexual activities, the body positivity advocate debunked those statements with claims that plus-sized ladies are no different from slim ladies when it comes to sexual activities.

Stephen, citing herself as an example disclosed that she is very active sexually and likes to try new things when she's with her partner.

"Sexual activities do not have to do with if one is big or small. There are lazy slim girls and there are lazy fat girls. I have met people who said that fat girls are flexible and crazy and some will say that some are lazy.

"So we cannot say 'all fat girls are lazy or all slim girls are active'. Personally, I like sex and I give it my best whenever I am with my partner.

"I'm a very flexible person because of some of my bubbly activities and that might have helped my sexual life. I also like to try new things. But that does not mean I cannot do without sex.

"I know where I can touch on my body that would get me aroused. I also have sex toys. I use them and they are very okay. I have to take care of my needs.

"I can also control the use of these toys; I don't like it when things control me. My body is not an apology because I am perfect. God made me in a beautiful way, so I don't have to apologize for it and fit into any beauty standard," she said.
