Veteran Nollywood actress,Steph Nora Okere has opened up on her failed marriage and why it’s not been easy to get married again. In excerpts from a new interview with Vanguard,she said…

Your marriage to Lanre Falana did not last. Why?

I was never married but I was involved in a marriage process which got truncated along the line. Marriage begins with paying the woman’s dowry, traditional and white wedding. All these did not take place. My family didn’t support marrying a man who kept one woman in one place and plans keeping another one in another place. I attend Catholic church and the marriage process in Catholic, begins with the intended couples tendering a marriage certificate issued by a court to the church. This was the main reason we were in court in the first place.

Was it cultural differences that led to the break up?

Not at all. It was based on personal conduct and irreconcilable differences . We were not living together. We had the court marriage in July and he went abroad September. Only for him to come back like a year and half later.

You said in an interview that you had no regret about your ‘’truncated marriage process.’’

That is because I am not a party to pretense. That marriage would have made me a sad woman. I have learnt not to judge a book by its cover.

Any plans of marrying again?

It has not been easy. You hardly can differentiate between a man who truly wants you as a woman because he feels for you , or one who wants to be seen with a known actress. Some men can go as far as taking a bet over you because you are a known actress. But when a good man comes around, I will settle with him. However, my Bible has not told me I can not make heaven as a single woman.

Do you feel lonely as a single woman?

How? Because I am not married? Why should I feel lonely? I have my family. I have brothers, sisters, friends and neighbours.
