Sanaa McCoy Lathan (born September 19, 1971) is an American actress. She is the daughter of actress Eleanor McCoy and film director Stan Lathan. Her career began after she appeared in the shows In the House, Family Matters, NYPD Blue, and Moesha.
Why did Sanaa Lathan never marry?
Sanaa Lathan is devoted to creating her own Nappily Ever After, and she doesn’t need a husband to do it, she said. The actress told journalist Taylor Rooks at this year’s CultureCon, held last weekend inside Brooklyn’s Duggal Greenhouse, why she’s prioritizing investing in herself rather than finding a partner.
“You see how many relationships aren’t working,” Lathan continued. “The divorce rate is—I don’t know—it has got to be over 50 percent. So I wouldn’t invest in something with less than 50 percent. That’s more than half of failure.”
While the star isn’t preoccupied with walking down the aisle, Lathan hasn’t ruled out relationships altogether. In fact, she believes that loving herself first will bring her a better quality partner.
