Ms Akpofure also highlighted her position, particularly for her daughter, saying, “If my daughter approaches me, as long as she’s not, I swear to God, not up to 28, we can rock with it. Anything below 28, please no.”
“Don’t get me wrong, there are people who are mature, oh. But you need to try different things in life, different experiences, to be sure of okay, I want to be stuck here. Because it’s handcuff, you’re there,” Venita explained.
Sharing her own experience, Venita, provided insight into the challenges of long-term commitment. She suggested that couples to consider separate yet connected rooms, to help maintain independence and avoid potential conflicts.
