The 39-year-old – who found love with farmer Mark Hughes on the most recent season of the Channel Nine matchmaking show – has used social media to slam those who have criticised her for not “dropping everything” to be by her “husband’s” side.
In an Instagram post over the weekend, Christie claimed that she had been “judged” for the decisions she had made in life, especially her decision to not relocate to her husband’s rural Victorian farm.
Never expected to do this out of the show but I was shocked how strong men and women loved me and others judged my decisions in life- eg I was hammered by the fact I was single at my age, that I (the woman) should drop everything I worked for and make the move ! Really? It’s 2016, why should it be the woman- heard of compromise. So it has encouraged me to start a blog on relationships and lifestyle balance. I’m not saying I’m an expert but I don’t apologise for my decisions in life. I’m happy, and that is what it should be about. let’s get talking, so hard for women today wearing so many different hats, we should support each other not bring each other down. #womancanbestrong #its2016people #whyshouldthewomandropeverything #marriedatfirstsight #christieinthecity #jordeesisters #balance #dontapologizeformydecisions #lovewhoiam #hopeyouenjoy @jordeesisters
