Socialite and entrepreneur Zari Hassan, popularly known as Zari the Bosslady, has opened up about her marital history following her recent Nikah ceremony with Shakib Chama. In an interview, Zari was asked about the number of times one needs to get married before they settle down.
To clarify, Zari Hassan stated that she has never been legally married before Shakib. She revealed that she had an introduction ceremony with her late baby daddy, Ivan Ssemwanga, but they never exchanged vows to be wed officially. Therefore, Shakib is the only man who has ever put a ring on her finger to become her legal husband.
Zari went on to describe Shakib as a very different individual from the men she had previously dated, making being his wife fantastic. Despite the 8-year age difference between them (Zari is 42 while Shakib is 34), Zari insisted that she is unconcerned by the criticism of their age gap. Zari Hassan emphasized that as long as their relationship is characterized by love, she does not adhere to societal standards at any moment.
Zari’s response sheds light on the importance of clarifying misunderstandings in our personal lives, especially those concerning marriage. In today’s world, there is often a lot of pressure to conform to societal norms, including getting married by a certain age or after a specific number of relationships.
However, as Zari’s experience shows, it is essential to follow one’s heart and not be influenced by external expectations. Her openness about her past relationships and her current marriage is a testament to the importance of transparency in relationships. It also emphasizes that we should not be defined by our past experiences, but instead focus on the present and future.
In conclusion, Zari’s clarification about her marriage history and her decision to marry Shakib in a Nikah ceremony is a reminder that love knows no bounds. As long as there is mutual respect and understanding, age and other societal expectations should not be a barrier to finding happiness in a committed relationship.
