Nollywood actress, Doris Simeon has attributed the recent rise in single motherhood as a fault of men.
She disclosed this in a recent interview interview with Thisday.
According to her, women are not at fault when it comes to being single parents. It is the men who no longer want to play their roles as husbands.
Single motherhood is not peculiar to Nollywood. If you go to the banking sector, there are single mothers there; in the military, in law firms and other fields, there are single mothers. It is not our fault; it’s just that men no longer want to play their role as husbands. I am not a supporter of single parenthood: every man or woman has the right to live their life the way they choose. It’s just by God’s grace that I am acting and producing. Emotional trauma is not what I will encourage anybody to pass through. God created every woman for a man. So marriage is good.
The actress who noted that she is not yet legally divorced from her ex-husband and father of her son, Daniel Ademinokan, revealed that their divorce process is still ongoing in court.
When asked if there is any hope of reconciliation between herself and her ex-husband who is now married to actress Stella Damasus, Doris said:
I don’t dwell in the past. I don’t want to talk about that anymore. I have moved on. I have no regret at all. I have only learnt to be stronger. The truth is that I have forgotten about everything. Time has erased it (the emotional pain I went through). I am now a better person. Today, I am closer to God and I put God first in everything I do. I never gave up on love. I have found love again in Jesus. I am married to my career right now. I am in a relationship anyway but I want to be private about it. I thank God because I am a better person. My career and business are going on well.
