“Polygamy is a life choice I can’t accept” – May Yul-Edochie
Polygamy is a valid life choice for individuals that she has chosen not to be part of, May, the estranged wife of popular actor, Yul Edochie has said.
The mother of four stated this in a viral Instagram post, months after she fell out with her husband for marrying a second wife.
May said polygamy does not align with her values and faith, and she, therefore, chose not to be a part of it.
“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 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,” she wrote on Thursday.
Recall that Yul sent tongues waging in April when it emerged that he had taken a second wife.
Announcing his second marriage to colleague, Judy Austin, the actor also disclosed the birth of their son.
