Betty Irabor when asked about the pressure to get married before 30 revealed women before that age have not yet gone through the school of life which prepares them for marriage.

According to her, "I don’t think women should be worried about being married before 30 because many women before that age have not yet gone through the school of life which prepares them for marriage."

Linda also revealed she gets pressured from family, friends and people who just can’t mind their business.

"Marriage is not an achievement. There is so much more to life than being someone’s wife. Get married please, but don’t be pressured into it. I don’t know how many of you single girls are under pressure to get married  but I am. Pressure from family, friends and people who just can’t mind their business," she said, adding, "The pressure is so intense right now I feel like going to husband market – if there is any such thing- to buy myself some breathing space. Give me a break you people."

Chigurl however said, "In my opinion, the pressure is not a fabrication. It is very real ! After you have won asoebi about a million times, you begin to wonder when it is going to be your turn to sell asoebi too ! And when you factor in mums and aunties constantly reminding you about the shelf life of women. It gets to you, even if it is just a bit.

People may even suggest some very strange things to you to do to ‘earn’ marriage. Well, I have come to realise that we allow ourselves to be pressured. The decision to get married should not be taken because you are being pressured, that could lead to a disaster. Don’t let anyone make you go into anything you are not ready for or your joy may be shortlived. And to those mounting pressure on others to go and get married, there is simply no justification for your behaviour."

Betty Irabor who has been married to seasoned broadcaster Soni Irabor for 33 years, recently had a knee surgery (arthroscopy) with her hubby by her side.
