Why my marriage has been successful – Ufuoma Mcdermott reveals
In the light of the fact that the marriages of many celebrities don’t last, Ufuoma Mcdermott, a top Nollywood actress and filmmaker, has shared tips on how to have a successful marriage.
Recall that the mother of two and her husband, Steven, had celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary some months ago.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, Mcdermott said;
“The first thing we should understand is that everybody just wants to be happy. I think people should work towards whatever it takes to achieve happiness.
Sometimes, it goes through, and sometimes, it falls through and the spouses would have to go their separate ways. I don’t believe that two people would come together with the aim that some years down the line, they would have a divorce.
However, as time goes on, they would realise that there are differences they cannot handle. They would have thought they could but it may not work out and they would have to go their separate ways. In some cases, that is the safer option and everybody would be happy.
“It is not just about being tolerant; it is also about being understanding, and knowing what one’s breaking point is. I have not ‘met’ my breaking point. But, I have had challenges in my marriage. There are times I upset my husband and there are times he upsets me.
Through it all, we both have not reached our breaking points. We are still at the point where it is okay for us to have misunderstandings. We correct the mistake and keep moving. We have done that for 10years.”
Regarding people that share their love lives and relationships on social media, the former Miss Ebony Beauty said, “Whatever works for one. My husband is not a public person. I respect his personality the way he respects mine, and that works for us.”
Meanwhile, the actress recently released her new movie, ‘Love Bane’.
