A Twitter user simply identified as Uloma has said that if she was happily married for 15 years and on the 16th anniversary, everything fell apart, she would not consider her marriage a failure.

According to her, she would rather say that the marriage ended.

She stated that she was happily married for the first 15 years, she would always cherish the memories rather than toss it away as a failure.

The woman revealed that she would rather leave her marriage if the issues are irreconcilable than stay in it to save face or make people see that her marriage was successful.

She reiterates that she would also not want her marriage to be described as failed because it diminishes the meaning and impact of the 15 years she had.
