When quizzed about his stand on monogamy, the 40-year-old actor said:
“That is why I am not married yet. I might be Kamala Harris’ age when I decide to get married, I don’t know. Until you are ready. I don’t believe in monogamy when you’re young but there are exceptions to every rule. Do you understand? There are some people that monogamy would work for when they’re young but the average person, I’ve always said, I don’t think any man has any business marrying before 40. To me oh, it doesn’t make me right. Between 35 – 40, I will say 35 – 40.’’
After suggesting that women should not be married before 30, the actor urged singles just like himself to weigh their options and be fully prepared before making any commitment.
“For women, apart from those that are afraid of their biological clock, but then again, how many children do women want these days? And please there is technology these days too. I don’t think any woman should be married before 30,’’ Uti opined.
“You have to experience life as a single. You have to weigh your options. For me, leave the spiritual contract of it, the same way I will say leave a government contract of it, because marriage is a contract between you, me, and God.
“Leave contract, leave agreement. If you don’t want to commit to somebody, don’t make it official, whether in the presence of God, whether in the presence of the government, whether in the presence of your family. Once you agree, integrity is integrity. There is no excuse,” he further said.
Uti Nwachukwu is one of the biggest actors in the Nigerian film industry.
