Yul Edochie, a Nigerian politician and Nollywood actor, believes that a guy can love two different women at the same time.
Yul, who announced this in a video posted to his official Facebook page on Friday, also explained why he married a second wife after a 17-year marriage to May Yul-Edochie.
Yul claims that ending his connection with his second wife was impossible because she had had such an impact on his life.
“I’ve heard that a man can’t love two ladies at the same time,” he explained. I used to believe it until something occurred to me, and then I realized that nothing is ever certain. At this stage in my life, I believe that a man can love two women.
“Two women can be in your life and bring different things to your life. They reason in different ways, they contribute different things to your life, and make you realise that is just the way it is.”
Admitting that it was wrong to have allowed another woman into his life while being married, he said “Yes it’s wrong, I take the blame for that. Things happened, it happened to me and I realised I couldn’t let this woman leave my life.
“You may say the circumstances are wrong, but these things happen, and then you realise you can’t let this person go. This person has a lot of impact on your life, you don’t want this person to go,” he added.
Speaking of his two wives, Edochie called them “wonderful women in their respective rights” as they both bring “different things to the table.”
