Stop Talking Down on Single Mums, Divorcees – Actress Rita Edochie Begs Nigerians

Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has urged people who speak negatively about single mothers and divorcees to desist from it.

The actress made the plea in a post on her Instagram page.

According to her, a woman being single or a divorcee doesn’t mean she is irresponsible or wayward.

Edochie said there are millions of single mothers and divorcees out there who are more responsible than married women.

She added that they are capable breadwinners who comfortably pay their bills and those of their kids.

“Stop talking down on single mothers and divorcees, tagging them irresponsible because you do not know the circumstances surrounding the divorce.

“See, don’t tell me the best way to determine if a woman is responsible or wayward is her ability to be in marriage with a man; I can never agree to that. There are millions of single parents and divorcees out there who are more responsible than most women who are in their husbands houses.

“These women tend to be productive and resourceful. They are capable breadwinners who comfortably pay their bills and those of their kids. Being in a man’s house doesn’t define your goodness as a woman, and it has nothing to do with being responsible,” Edochie wrote.
