What a smart woman you are, Ezinne Ukoha. I wanted to be married at twenty-five because all my friends from college were either already married or engaged. I wanted to be married at twenty-five because I wanted to change my last name. I wanted to be married at twenty-five because I wanted a beautiful diamond ring. I wanted to be married at twenty-five because I wanted to be queen for the day and walk down the aisle with everyone watching. I wanted to be married at twenty-five but didn’t know what happily ever after and until death do us part meant. Now I know better.
