She added that she would choose to marry on her own terms and conditions, and not on what society expects of her.
“It is sometimes very awkward looking at the societal pressures as to when I am going to married even though I don’t give ears to such pressures,” she revealed.
“I will live with the man, so it is very important that I do it because I want to, not because society wants it for me,” she Rita Dominic added.
However, Ms Dominic is very optimistic that when God’s time comes for her, she would get married.
“I believe God is in control of my life and at the right time, he will present the right man to me,” she hoped.
