She revealed her children, who had reached maturity, earnestly pleaded with her not marry.

They expressed concerns about potential societal reactions, especially from their peers.

In her own words, Ms. Ozokwo said “I wanted to remarry, but my kids had already come of age, and they pleaded with me not to marry another man, and they promised they would be my husband.”

Acknowledging the sacrifice, she continued, “They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried, and I understood them. Though it was selfish of them, I paid the huge sacrifice for them. No sacrifice is too huge for family.”
