Marriage Is Not A Do Or Die Thing – Yul Edochie

By Oluwarantimi Oludase

Controversial Nollywood star turned pastor, Yul Edochie, has aired his view on his perception of marriage and divorce.

Yul, who is currently in a divorce battle with his first wife, May Edochie over getting married to another woman, Judy Austin.

Yul believes that marriage is one's choice and people's opinion should not guide you in terms of getting married. Furthermore, he stated that a person is free to get married many times as he or she wishes.

He stated that a person should put oneself first in the issue of divorce and marriage, as it doesn't matter if a marriage is not working out, the person can file for a divorce and remarry until he or she finds happiness.

The controversial star aired his views in an interview with White Pearl Studios. His words in quote reads;

“For me, marriage is not a do or die thing. If you see it is not working, walk away respectfully. You don’t have to hurt each other. And when you walk away and you see the next person and you decide to marry, go ahead and marry. If e no work again, go. If you see another one, marry. If e no work again, go. You can marry 50 times as long as it works for you.

“You can’t control how people react towards you. And what makes me happy is different from what makes you happy. Don’t let anybody tell you what’s good for you. Find out what works for you. And if you decide in this life that you will not marry till you die, please do. Be happy.”
