Her Marriage

Patience Ozokwo at 19 got married to a man who her parents had arranged for her.

Patience’s husband was a mechanical engineer who also served as a civil servant in Enugu. Lucky for her, she grew to really love her husband and she ended up having a really good marriage.

Patience and her husband together had three beautiful children together and lived quite a wonderful simple life. That was until 2000 when he eventually fell ill and eventually passed away.

On the day Patience’s husband died, she was shooting a movie on location. Upon hearing the news from her family that he had died and that they had put him in a mortuary, she stopped shooting – strongly despite the wishes of the movie producer, but Patience didn’t care.
