Uche Jombo Rodriguez: Are long distance marriages in?

Top Nollywood actress Uche Jombo just recently got married to her American lover Kenny Rodriguez at a secret ceremony in Puerto Rico.

Mr and Mrs Rodriguez

According to her she wanted a hush hush ceremony. The only Nollywood actor present at her wedding was her best friend Desmond Elliot. She had decided to keep this particular relationship a secret because she had previously been involved with a popular footballer, Ikechukwu Uche and her business was just out there.

Not too long after her wedding she was spotted out and about in Nigeria working. This left people asking if the marriage really took place.

Her husband Kenny Rodriguez is an American that lives and works in New York while Uche is based in Nigeria.

Distance really does make the heart fonder... or does it?

Which brings me to the crux of this write up

I've observed that many women particularly celebs or high profile women usually opt for long distance relationships. I recently asked an aunt whose husband has been living in US for 15 years while she is based here. She says its the best and that its the easiest way it can work because living with a man consistently could cause friction.

I'm almost tempted to believe her but is that really God's concept of marriage? It is not good for man to be alone was the sole reason for the institution of marriage in the first place.. especially with this very cold nights we have these days *wink * you need to see how tightly I hug my pillow every night then i'll now allow my husband to be far from me... hell-to-da- no! lol

What's your take on long distance marriages? Does it help or destroy a home? Is it good for the kids? Is it good for the society? or does it make one lonely, looking in the mirror and crooning Brandy's 'This long distance is killing me..

Please share your thots.. I look forward to hearing from you


  1. Uche Rodriguez...? Hmmm! her husband is a fine man. well i dont think theres anything wrong in long distance relationships but each individual should try as much as possible to make sacrifices to be together often.

    I've missed reading you MizV

  2. Abeg long distance is a long thing. Not even at the beginning of marriage, what's that. For this cold weather again?

  3. it's a no no for me. we might as well stay best friends...smh

  4. i guess its different strokes
    your aunty probably knows what she is talking about
    I think it is ideal for a husband and wife to live
    together at least for intimacy sake
    a closeness beyond sex...yeah yeah yeah!
