Yul Edochie: First Wife Does This
It is not you usual drama from Nigerian actors. Just imagine your husband comes home on a daily basis only for you to later learn that the man you’ve been giving sleepless nights have got another woman?
Will you accept to be named as wife number so and so? Many I think will walk out and this is the case of popular Nigerian actor Yul Edochie.
His first wife penned a letter refuting to be number in the polygamous marriage. She says all that the actor is doing is aganaist her belief and she can’t but it any more. Not even a second.
Uche wrote: What is more admirable between honesty and deception? Most people will tell you that it is honesty and even proceed to quote a part of scripture that says, ‘The truth shall set you free’.
But none of this is true though. Society does not value honesty and the truth will only make you enemies. It doesn’t set you free. Not on this planet. If we all went around speaking our minds, we will either end up dead or in jail. We are encouraged to tell the truth but vilified when we do. Isn’t that something?
So we lie to our wives, husbands, parents, children and all of society. We lie to protect them because we know that they cannot handle the truth. That is why we lie. The most controversial thing you can do today is not killing, cheating or stealing. Society does this everyday enmass. The most controversial thing you can do is to tell the truth. A lie is like a bottle of soda. It tastes good but it isn’t good for us. Truth on the other hand is like quinine. The taste is horrible but healthy and curative. That is why we have adverts of your coca colas and pepsis plastered all over the world but not quinine. A lie simply tastes better.
And this my friends is why we celebrate cheaters and attack truth tellers. We consider it more respectable for a man to marry one wife and quietly cheat on her with multiple women than for him to marry two or more of these women, making his feelings for them official and respectable. It seems to me that the issues we face in life are not because we are imperfect humans. We struggle as a society simply because we cannot handle the truth.
Promoting May Yule Edochie to respond: 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 devine.
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|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.
Remember Yul and May’s Co wife wished Youl a happy birthday. So cute but bitter, right?
Actor Yul Edochie’ second wife, Judy Austin, wished his estranged first wife, May Yul Edochie, a happy birthday on her IG page. Yul also wished her a happy birthday but the couple got no acknowledgement from May.
May is sitll not following her estranged husband on IG.
yuledochie responded to this blog a called Linda saying “Linda you know I have a lot of respect for you. This your caption no gel naa. Estranged wife means a wife who is no longer living with the husband. Both of us are still living in the same house, in our mansion in Ajah. So how is she estranged? Peter Obi will always say ‘go and verify’. You didn’t verify this one before writing Linda.”
