Beautiful Nollywood actress, Sylvia Olisa, nee Anyanwu, may have thrown a jab that would land right on the cheeks of many today’s women who view the marriage institution as inconsequential in their lives even though the Holy Books ordain it. According to the Cell Biology and Genetics graduate of University of Lagos in a chat with Potpourri, every woman and man should strive to get marriage, if they are truly responsible.

“ Well, marriage is a very very important institution that any responsible man or woman should embark on,” she had said in reaction to a question on marriage, sex and relationship.

“ Starting your own family on time is very important too, so you can have the youthfulness and strength to raise your kids. Kids of these days take a lot of your energy, both physically and mentally,” she added.

On sex, she said, “ Sex should be had between two people that are fully ready emotionally, mentally and financially to handle any consequence that comes from it.”

Sylvia Olisa, who has produced two movies of her own, namely; Next Door Nuisance and Longest Day, having featured in blockbusters like Aguiyi Ironsi and Shina Rambo and many others, married movie producer, Prince Iyke Olisa in 2016 and had her first child three months after in the United States.

“ I didn’t plan to marry a producer. We were friends, then fell in love and the rest is history. I got pregnant before marriage but we have been planning the marriage long before I took in,” she had revealed in another interview.
