She also said that age is not necessarily important and that there is no best age to get married.
The actress wrote: “You people should stop asking “when will you get married Morili.”
The best time to get married is when you feel comfortable and confident in your job and personal life.

The best time to get married is when you feel comfortable and confident in your job and personal life.”
