Online debate has been sparked by a Nigerian woman who compared reactions to Rita Dominic and Mercy Chinwo, two experienced Nollywood actors who wed at roughly the same age, with MI Abaga’s wedding.
According to the woman, who goes by the Twitter handle @aunty neme, everyone appears to be silent about MI Abaga being married at his current age (40), but there was a lot to say when Mercy Chinwo and Rita Dominic got married at ages 30 and 47, respectively.
“No one actually has anything to say about M.I and getting married at his current “age”. But on Mercy Chinwo and Rita Dominic’s day, Una wan use motivational speech finish us. Odiegwu”. She wrote on Twitter.

The only perfect time and age to get married is when you are fully ready and prepared mentally, but others don't see it that way. So many people belive that if a woman isn't married before the age of 30, then something is wrong with her, even when shes not ready for marriage

Recall that Olemerezi Basil, a motivational speaker from Nigeria, advised young unmarried women not to emulate the actress by getting married at age 46 after Rita Dominic’s nuptials a few months ago.
The man posted on his Facebook page to argue that at age 46, one should be enjoying 20 years of marriage rather than a brand-new union.
“Ladies please don’t follow the footsteps of Rita Dominic. There is no sweetness in marrying at 46years. At 46 you should be celebrating 20years of marriage anniversary with your husband and your 20years old undergraduate by your side, even though it God that bless with kids.” He wrote in part.
