May Yul Edochie, a brand influencer and wife of Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has spoken out about their union.
May Edochie stated that she would not be persuaded to agree to a practice that conflicts with her family’s and her faith’s principles.
After the actor wed his coworker Judy Austin, his marriage to May deteriorated.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, the mother of four stated that she and the actor live together because they jointly own their home.
For her, polygamy is a life choice and no one should be compelled to accept it.
May hinted at forgiving her husband, Yul for his mistake as she noted how everyone deserves an opportunity to make things right when they stray.
She wrote: “The ability to accept or tolerate challenges and problems in life is a virtue, and should not be misconstrued. There is no point making an already bad situation worse, hence the need to remain calm is crucial. I understand that we all have our weaknesses and limitations as humans, and I personally believe everyone deserves an opportunity to make things right when they stray… Forgiveness is divine.
“Beyond all unnecessary facades, Polygamy is a life choice and no one should be compelled to accept it. It is something I think all parties involved should embrace willingly, and it’s okay for anyone for anyone who chooses it. Some regions/traditions allow polygamy and I have nothing against it. However, I am ABSOLUTELY against it. However, I am absolutely certain that I will not be NUMBERED as a wife or be cajoled to accept a practice that does not align with my faith and family values.
“God blessed me with a happy, peaceful and lovely family in a beautiful and JOINTLY built ‘mansion’ that started from little or nothing….humble beginnings. What more could I have been asking for? I had a stable and loving home prior to the unprecedented events regarding my marriage.
“Life is made up of an infinite amount of choices. Most decisions might be tough to make, but whenever we confront our opinions with courage and confidence, we should equally be open to the paths of our own design. I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought that comes with it in our lifetime.
“We should understand that taking life changing decisions hastily is not the best. God in His infinite mercy fixes things in His own time. He will definitely answer all our prayers. Thanks you all for your continuous prayers, love and support. May God bless you abundant. It’s still my birth month”.
