Yul Edochie, a Nollywood actor, has explained why he married a second wife after a 17-year marriage to May Yul-Edochie the first wife.
On Friday, the actor posted a video to his Facebook page in which he explained why he chose to marry his coworker.
Despite common thought, Edochie acknowledged that he should not have allowed another woman into his life after his first marriage. He went on to say that he couldn’t let go of his second wife because she had a significant impact on his life.
“I have heard from people that a man can’t love two women at the same time. I used to believe it until it happened to me, I realised that never say never. At this point in my life, I think it is possible for a man to 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.”
The former presidential aspirant also admitted that allowing another woman into his life during his first marriage was wrong.
“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.
Edochie described his two wives as “great people in their own right,” saying that they each bring “different things to the table.”
