Nia Long Has Never ‘Seen Marriage Work’
This is as real as real can get and she’s actually not alone in her thought. I know plenty of people who think the same. Actress Nia Long sat down with Essence magazine and discussed her relationship with her boyfriend basketball star Ime Udoka and why she isn’t in a rush to get married, according to Daily Mail. Nia, who already has a 10 year old son and recently had a baby boy with Ime, is quite happy with their life as it is.
The Soul Food actress, 41, says she’s ‘never seen a marriage work’, although admittedly she hasn’t ruled it out.
Speaking to Essencemagazine, Nia – who also has 10-year-old son Massai with former boyfriend Massai Z Dorsey – said she’s been shocked to hear scrutiny about her relationship with Ime.
She explained: ‘I’ll be at home with my man, having a perfectly loving time, and I’ll see all these comments on some site about how wrong I am for not being married.’
As we all know, if you’re a celebrity, you’re held up to the highest of high standards. Usually by people who are living the very life they condemn. Strange and twisted world we live in. However, Nia is far from a poster child of bitter single parent…
‘Marriage is not a priority for me. I’m not saying I’ll never do it; It’s just not where we are as a family,’ she said.
Sounds like a woman who’s happy and not rushing anything. That’s the way to go!
