May Yul-Edochie, wife of actor Yul Edochie, has said she would not be cajoled into accepting her husband’s choice of polygamy.
Yul unsettled the peace in his home in April when he announced he had married actress Judy Moghalu as his second wife and that they have a son together.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Saturday, May, who has four children with Yul, said polygamy is a life choice and that no one should be compelled to accept it.
May added that the house in which she lives was jointly built by her and Yul.
She also hinted she had forgiven her husband, noting that “we all have our weaknesses and limitations as humans.”
She said, “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.
“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.”
“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,” May added.
