In 2022, Anerlisa publicly confirmed the dissolution of their marriage, commending her legal advocates, Hamza Jabir and Hosea Chamba, for their efficient handling of the process.
In a recent interview with Mpasho, Anerlisa Muigai shared insights into her life post-divorce, highlighting the valuable lessons she has gained while expressing her enduring belief in love and marriage.
“You don’t give up that easily,” she remarked.
Anerlisa acknowledged her past mistakes have contributed to her personal growth and self-improvement.
Furthermore, Anerlisa stated her intention to keep her love life private, explaining her decision not to share relationship details on social media.
She outlined her criteria for discussing her relationships, stating:
“I have made mistakes in the past, and I’ve had a personal meeting with myself where I decided that I would only talk about my relationship when someone has put a ring on my finger. Not just an engagement ring – I’ve been there – but when I am married. I currently value my privacy greatly.”
Offering advice to those contemplating marriage, Anerlisa emphasized the importance of prayer and self-sufficiency.
“Just pray for God to give you the best partner. Men do have their egos, and sometimes they might leave you for ego boosters. While everyone desires a financially stable partner, it’s equally crucial for women to be self-reliant.”
Reflecting on her own journey, Anerlisa shared her insights, saying:
“I’ve learned so many lessons. It has been three years since my divorce, and it was a wake-up call for me to prioritize self-care. Don’t rush into marriage or marry someone solely for the material benefits they offer.”
