“I Want My Marriage To Work” – Actor Stan Nze, Speaks On Marriage With His older wife

Despite being married to a woman older than him, Actor Stan Nze says he wants his marriage to work at all costs, considering the negativity that surrounds celebrity marriages.

Stan spoke about his marriage with his 42-year-old wife Blessing Obasi in Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s ‘Rubbin’ Minds’ show.

He said that before his marriage, he was compelled to go off social media to have a rethink about his decision to marry, and also, celebrity breakups made him question his readiness for marriage.

He said he had planned to keep his marriage under wraps till his honeymoon, especially considering how celebrity marriages were crashing during the period but his wife insisted they post a photo so they could control any coming narrative. 

“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,” he said.

“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 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 back by 1 am and have a partner who is wondering if there’s lipstick [stain] on you.”

Stanley Nze, 32 got married to his Nollywood sweetheart, Blessing Jessica Obasi, 42 on September 11, 2021.

Speaking to BBC, Nze said that before he got married, people told him that his marriage would only last six months before they get into a fight but they vowed not to fight with each other for one year and it worked for them.

Despite the age difference, Nze said he married a woman with whom he would feel free and comfortable.
