“My father rejected all my suitors” – Single 96-year-old woman with no child cries out (Video)

A 96-year-old single woman, Susanna Nwachukwu has shared her lifelong struggle with singleness, revealing that her father’s staunch adherence to the Catholic faith played a pivotal role in her unmarried life.

Speaking with a female content creator, Nelojosh, Ms. Nwachukwu tearfully recounted her life’s journey, which was marked by the rejection of numerous suitors, all because they were not Catholics.

Ms. Nwachukwu disclosed that her romantic suitors started approaching her as early as elementary school, specifically in fourth grade.

Despite receiving advances from various eligible bachelors, her late father steadfastly refused each proposal due to their non-Catholic affiliations.

In a heartfelt video testimony, Ms. Nwachukwu listed the names of some of her suitors in her native Igbo language.

However, she reiterated that her father’s unwavering desire was to see her married to a fellow Catholic, just as her siblings had done.

When questioned about why she did not defy her father’s wishes, Ms. Nwachukwu explained that, during her youth, it was exceptionally challenging for children to oppose their parents’ decisions.

In her era, such defiance carried significant consequences, and she had no choice but to respect her father’s fervent beliefs.

Ms. Nwachukwu expressed profound regret over the impact of her late father’s actions on her life, highlighting the heavy toll it had taken on her personal happiness and fulfillment.

Despite the odds stacked against her, she managed to find solace and purpose in her work.

During her active years, Ms. Nwachukwu dedicated 21 years and two months of her life to serving in a local hospital in Emekuku.
