The lovely Nia Long and her 2 beautiful kids are on the cover one Essence Magazine. She talks about marriage and how she is happy in her relationship the way it is and she doesn't need marriage to have happiness.
“Marriage is not a priority for me. I’m not saying I’ll never do it; It’s just not where we are as a family,”
“I’ll be at home with my man, having a perfectly loving time, and I’ll see all these comments on some site about how wrong I am for not being married,” she says. “I don’t feel less loved or less loving because I’m not married.”
“I’m a lot calmer. Less clingy and demanding., said Long, adding that she doesn’t feel anxious about what Ime Udoka is doing when he leaves home. “I took it as an opportunity to nest,” she explains.
“Motherhood is not easy, but it’s natural,” she says. “I worked hard to have the career I wanted, but I’ve also been deliberate about my personal life. None of this is a mistake.”
