I sacrificed my marriage for acting – Christiana Awuni
Actress Christiana Awuni says she gave up on her second husband when he asked her to stop acting and make time for their marriage.
The Kumasi-based actress explains her ex-husband failed to understand the demanding nature of the acting job which takes her out of home on several occasions – making her have little time for the marriage, hence he started having issues with her.
The mother of two who has been divorced twice, says she chose acting over her marriage when she was confronted by her ex-husband to either be an unmarried actress or stop acting and focus on their marriage.
“For my second marriage, what happened was that he didn’t like my acting job. I had to go on set; sometimes away from home for days. Now that I’m here in Accra and don’t know when I’ll be returning to Kumasi, imagine I’m married. He didn’t understand that,” the Actress said in an interview on the Delay Show.
She added, “He asked me to choose between acting and marriage. I chose acting because I was an actress when he met me. That led to the divorce. It wasn’t because I was arrogant.”
Christiana Awuni also revealed she had her first child at age 17.
