Did you know Patience Ozokwo got married at the age of 19?
PATIENCE OZOKWO MARRIAGE & HUSBAND
The veteran actress got married at the age of 19 in an arranged marriage by her parents. According to her, although she had many suitors at the time, her parents forced her to get married at that early age for reasons she still cannot tell.
While the decision was not easy for her, she went ahead with it.
Her husband was a mechanical engineer and served as a civil servant in Enugu. It turned out that the actress later enjoyed her married life.
Patience Ozokwor and her husband had three beautiful children together and lived a great life. Her husband who she was forced to marry later became her real love and companion.
But he battled an illness and eventually passed away in 2000.
When Patience Ozokwo’s husband was hospitalized, her sister-in-law and her were taking care of him; sister-in-law stayed with him at nights while Patience took over from her in the morning before going to the location.
On the fateful day Patience Ozokwo husband died, she was on a movie location. When her family informed her about his death and they put him in the mortuary, they asked her to continue with her job, because they understand her kind of job, but she blatantly refused.
Patience took permission from the producer and stayed away for some days. She later came back to finish the production of the movie.
After her husband’s death, Patience did not marry anyone again, but adopted 5 children who all bear her name.
Patience misses her husband and when she talks about his death, she always says that she really missed his companionship and how they worked together work to raise the children and give them love.
