Veteran Nollywood actress and one of the few who has been able to stay in her marriage, Toyin Adewale, has told actresses who keep blaming the industry, the media and other people for the failure of their marriages, to look inwards and know that they are the architects of their marital woes.
The actress has been married for over 20 years and surely knows what she is talking about, and she is of the belief that the entertainment industry shouldn’t be blamed for broken marriages.
She says that the actresses should be blamed instead, for their inability to tolerate, forgive and be submissive to their husbands, leading to the frequent marriage break ups between actresses and their spouses.
The actress, who is a veteran in the Yoruba sector of the movie industry, has this to say:
“Let me correct one notion. The industry does not support broken marriages. I think our ladies in the movie industry should just learn to be tolerant because marriage is all about tolerance.
“If you don’t have that heart to overlook things, if you cannot tolerate things, if you cannot just let bygone be bygone, you cannot keep a home.
“I think that is the problem of our young women nowadays. To make marriages work, the actresses have to be able to forgive, be prayerful, submissive and tolerant.
“You have to learn to forgive one another to make the marriage work,” the actress, who has been in the industry for over three decades, concluded.
