Anozie and Ifeoma were very much in love. It was love at first sight and they've been together for four years. Ifeoma went on a two-months vacation and when she returned, she got the shock of her life, – the love of her life had replaced her with another woman. She was devastated as she didn't see it coming. Somehow, she went past it and had a daughter for another man. She is a grown woman today and she recently brought her fiance to meet her mother. The introduction date was set and guess who walked in as the future father-in-law? If you were Ifeoma, would you allow your daughter marry Anozie's son? These are the responses of some of our celebrities:
As a mother, it will be a hard decision to make - Yvonne Enakena, Actress
First of all, I will try to talk her out of it, but if she insists, I'll give her my blessings. Before that, I'll carry out an investigation on him to know the kind of person he is, if he deserves and genuinely loves my daughter. Truth is, people lead different lives. One person's character shouldn't affect another person negatively even if they are blood relatives. As a mother, it will be a hard decision to make. I will put up a fight to stop them, but if she insists that they want to be together, I'll let them be.
I can't stand in the way of true love-Belinda Effah, Actress
Personalities are different, so it will be wrong to judge one person based on another person's mistake. I may still be hurt, but if the love is genuine and I have the conviction that it is, then I can't stand in the way of true love.
If it makes her happy, she has my blessing-Seyi Hunter, Actress
I have no problem with my daughter marrying the son of a bad ex. What happened between us shouldn't affect our children's relationship. If it makes her happy, she has my blessing.
I won't let my daughter marry from an ex's family-Shirley Igwe, Actress/Model
I jilt men, they don't jilt me. In any case, I won't let my daughter marry from an ex's family. There's a reason I 'exed' him. I will have to examine those reasons before taking decisions. Bottom-line, I can't watch my daughter make the mistakes that I made.
I won't judge an innocent girl based on her mother's past - Lawrence Onuzuluike, Producer/Actor
I don't think jilting a man is hereditary. So, I won't judge an innocent girl based on her mother's past. And what if I was the reason behind her mother's actions? Should I still blame her daughter? I will totally allow it as long as they love each other.
