Marriage is not a bed of roses. It’s full of ups and downs. One needs one to be mature and well prepared psychologically and emotionally before deciding to settle down. Local celebrity Anerlisa Muigai, who recently turned 30 years old is yet to settle down, and she has finally opened up after a male follower asked her why she wasn’t married at her age.
Anerlisa has confessed that she is not in a hurry to get married and in her message, she said:
“People question me why at 30 I am not married or have kids and my question is, who said having a husband and kids is what completes a woman? There is more to offer as women other than just giving birth and again people are getting too quick to the alter with someone who isn’t worth the commitment. Don’t try to play the role with someone who doesn’t fit the part. Your happiness and peace of mind should come first, that’s what should matter not this superficial life some people are trying to live. Nobody should rush you to do things. I will one day start my family but not because of society pressure.”
The young CEO’s post attracted hundreds of suitors and here are some of the comments from Kenyan men.
Kibet Kipkosgei: It only when loneliness starts to dawn on you, you will be 40 something then and you will start hearing some whispers from nowhere, that loneliness is similar to being overweight and you feel ashamed or disgraced, you will not wish it away as long as planet earth is your home, as those who have tried kids in vain? Ask those who have kids and single they are really struggling deep inside their hearts.
If you are a lady please get married even if its a gardener or a herdsboy, time is of essence and your mental health will allow you to live long on this very earth. Thanks.
Mwiti G. Kinyua: All the best with that, Miss independent. But I think if it didn’t bother you, you wouldn’t see the need to clarify your position on social media. Marry if you want to, for Pete’s sake. Don’t, if you don’t feel like it, too. Its your life, and you have a right to hug whatever you want to hug, just before you sleep!
Theddy Siembo: I’ll be the first to propose for you here, I have nothing to offer you, just true Love, 😂😂😂. Mungu Tupe watoto Watatu Tajiri!
Ngochorai Ngatia: For now its justifiable but time is coming when all that glamour will fade! Its advisable to marry and have kids !! Your mother hopes and prays for grandchildren! Do justice zaa!! I hope you won’t regret when it’s too late.
Enoch Oyugi: Hehehehe lets be single together hata mimi sina mbio…..i mean the population is way to high and got individual life goals i have not yet accomplished.
Kevin Odhier: Just look at my face, very good-looking and sexually energetic . By hearing my voice will make you ovaries twerk. I’m heaven sent, yani the better option In fact more than Safaricom. Try me and make your village proud 😂😂😂.
Women, on the other hand, agreed with Anerlisa Muigai that having kids or getting married because of society pressure is a waste of time.
Eunice.gachugu: Live your life and have fun while you are still single. If it’s God’s will, marriage and kids will happen in His perfect time.

Milka Ndung’u: I am a mother there is no other greater job en wen your baby comes you will understand I think being stable you can have a baby and leave the alter if it never comes all the best…
