That I am unmarried or I don’t have kids doesn’t make me less of a woman – Kemi Adetiba

Filmmaker Kemi Adetiba has made it known she is not less of a woman becuase she isn’t married or have kids.

She shares a video of Black-ish star Tracee Eliss Ross on her page and wrote;

“Before the “miss the point” folks start running rogue in my comment section, Tracee Ellis Ross has never once said she never wants to be married or have children. What she is saying however, is that because she currently has neither, some people choose to invalidate all of her personal achievements and growth. Their line of reasoning is her life is yet to have TRUE meaning until a husband and child punctuate her entire existence.

This struck a chord as I get this all the time. I will be 38 in just over a month and a half, and while I would LOVE to be married (to my God-chosen companion, and best friend) and have child(ren), I am very comfortable with the knowledge that my life is just as valid, and beautiful, and happy, and successful, if for some reason that never comes to pass. Marriage and kids is not my “crowning glory”… It’s another BEAUTIFUL step in life I would love to take. I’d also love to make (and keep) a billion dollars in my lifetime, but I won’t be any less of a woman or Kemi Adetiba if that didn’t come to pass either.
No… I’m not comparing the two. I’m just highlighting it doesn’t diminish a (Wo)man’s -Kemi Adetiba’s – worth if it never happens. Hello… Good morning

  1. Kemi Darling, the best time of your life is actually your single days if you have discovered yourself and found GOD.PLEASE NEVER EVER feel that your life is not valid and you are yet to find true meaning of life because you are almost 38 and still single.Be in tune with your maker and creator, i believe once you have found GOD, then you have it all. marriage is not what makes your life happy and beautiful. Marriage is good only when you have found GOD and have developed your spiritual life.Marriage is service to humanity and a battlefield not a bed of roses. If you are not happy as a single person and your life is not beautiful, no human being can do that for you, only GOD. SO hold on to GOD and he will grant you the desires of your heart. My marriage will be 11 years in December and i have 2 kids, a boy and a girl.GOD has held my marriage together and is still holding me like a baby giving me strenght to go on. I am so grateful that i found GOD before marriage so stick with your maker. CHEERS!
