May, the first wife of the popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has finally reacted to her husband’s public apology for taking a second wife.
The mother of four in a lengthy post she shared via her Instagram page a few hours ago disclosed that she has forgiven her husband as she is incapable of hating.
However, she maintained her stance by stating that she can never be cajoled into accepting polygamy as that was never bargained for at the onset.
She averred that she can’t be numbered in a home that was started with love, faith, tears, hopes, and prayers.
May Edochie also seized the opportunity to call for an end to the incessant marital dramas while stating that these could affect their children directly or indirectly among their peers.
In her words:
“I strongly believe that mistakes are a major part of human existence. It is our response to these errors that count. In other words, forgiveness is one thing, and righting a wrong is another.
FORGIVENESS is the highest | most beautiful form of love for me. There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. Hence, my ability to forgive the mistakes of the past, present, and future with respect to the issue on ground is in the interest of my mental health and inner peace.
I decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear. I am still very much incapable of HATING anyone, let alone the father of my children. The fact remains that anyone can choose to practice POLYGAMY, but can’t be impelled to accept what was never bargained for.
To reaffirm my stands, I will not be CAJOLED into accepting polygamy, which goes against my beliefs, faith, and values.
I will not be NUMBERED in a home that we started building with love, faith, tears, hopes, and prayers in a CATHOLIC marriage of 18 years following a long term premarital relationship.
This is also a passionate appeal to put an END to the constant “show” on the social media space where our kids are growing into unless it is absolutely necessary. Let’s prevent our lovely children from all the incessant drama series that might take a toll on them directly or indirectly amongst their peers.
May GOD in His infinite mercy and compassion guide us all in the right direction.
Merry Christmas in advance everyone!”
