One of Ghana’s favorite female gospel Musicians, Patience Nyarko has finally opened up on the reason she is still single.
Speaking in an interview with Dr. Cann on Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra, Patience Nyarko stated emphatically that Marriage is the last thing on her mind. She explained that there are many people out there like herself who have not made Marriage a priority.
“Marriage is not everyone’s priority. On this earth, it is not everyone that is destined to marry. The women are even more than the men so it should not be by force that I should want to get married at all cost”. She reiterated.
According to Patience, desperation and societal pressure shouldn’t force anyone into marriage especially with the rate at which divorce is high in Ghana.
“If by God’s grace you find someone, that’s fine and if you don’t, it is also fine”. She added.
Speaking on why most Gospel Musician’s Marriages ends in divorce, Patience Nyarko disclosed that, most of them who are suffering are unable to speak up because of their status and only a few are courageous enough to come out and let the world know what they are going through.
“If I’m a gospel musician and my partner is giving me troubles at home, since I’m a gospel artiste, I can’t complain because people are looking to me as an inspiration to live their lives and to hold up their marriages. If I’m a pastor and my husband beats me, I can’t tell anyone because people come to me as Pastor’s wife to help them solve their marital problems”.
Patience Nyarko asserted that the above mentioned amongst other factors is the reason most pastors and gospel singers do not complain when their marriages fail after a few years of endurance.
She went ahead to advise the public to stop criticizing those who end their Marriages because nobody knows how much they had to endure.
