Nigerian feminist reveals she regrets getting married at the age she did

A Nigerian lady identified as Florida Uzoaru is going viral on social media after she took to the platform to give a detailed narration on why she regrets getting married and having a child at the time she did.

Florida who tags herself a ‘bitter feminist’ on Twitter, revealed that she had always been a career woman and having a child at the time she did slowed down a lot of things for her. She went on to state that she even considered divorcing her husband at some point, just to follow her dreams of being more that a wife and mother.

She narrated: “I knew I was a career-driven woman! I knew I wasn’t all that excited about getting married. I knew children weren’t my favorable thing on earth. But building a career I wanted seemed to take too long & I was impatient. I wasn’t going to get married.

Then I met Le Boo & only fell in love. This was the first time in my life I was liking a man who liked me more than I liked him. I generally go for unavailable men, men who aren’t sure of me etc. If a man “loves me too much”, he’s not challenging & so I didn’t want him

I got married & immediately wanted a child, cos that’s the natural progression, isn’t it. Had my baby and almost immediately regretted it. Actually I started regretting it from the time I got pregnant. It was if I temporarily lost my marbles. Regardless, I made the decision. This was not an unplanned pregnancy. I wanted the child. I did everything I could to get the child, and now I have him. Thus, I was going to be the very best mother I could for this child, who didn’t beg me to have him.

She went further to state although she love and appreciates her husband who she says has been the one holding down the marriage, she still regrets getting married at the age she did, which she revealed was 30.
