In a poignant video, a 95-year-old Nigerian woman named Suzan, still single and a virgin, tearfully revealed the lifelong reason behind her unmarried status – her father’s steadfast insistence on suitors adhering strictly to the Catholic faith.
This emotional disclosure highlights the significant impact of religious beliefs on Suzan’s marital journey, underscoring the influence of her father’s stringent criteria in her life choices.
The video depicted two women – a young lady and Suzan herself. The younger woman assisted in interpreting Suzan’s sentiments, elucidating that despite numerous suitors interested in marrying Suzan, her late father persistently rejected them due to their non-adherence to the Catholic faith.
