May, the first wife of Yul Edochie has said she would not be cajoled into polygamy or be numbered as a wife.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram handle, May said polygamy though acceptable in some climes, does not align with her family values and faith.
May is making this statement following the recent revelation from her husband who disclosed that he already had a son with another actress, Judy Austin Muoghalu.
May, whose union with Edochie is 17 years and has produced four children said ‘I had a stable and loving home prior to the unprecedented events regarding my marriage’ but ‘taking life-changing decisions hastily is not the best’.
In the recent post on her Instagram account, May Edochie who did not reveal if she’s option for divorce said she’s taking her time to make her decision.
She wrote in a lengthy post, “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 the 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 who chooses it. Some religions and traditions allow polygamy and I have nothing 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.
The movie star’s wife further said, “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 options 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. Thank you all for your continuous prayers, love and support. May God bless you abundantly.”
