Onuoha advised Edochie to stop talking about his second wife and allow his first wife who had been with him for ages to heal from his betrayal.
Georgina Onuoha’s advise comes after Yul
Yul Edochie noted how his first wife, May Yul Edochie had bagged her first endorsement which was something that never happened before the scandal.
He admitted that he had offended his wife in several ways but he has apologised to her in a sincere manner.
Further counting his blessings, he stated that the scandal has made him more famous and has brought Judy to the spotlight.
Reacting to this, Georgina Onuoha wrote, “My dearest brother Yul @yuledochie I appreciate that you acknowledged you wronged your wife, May @mayyuledochie. And I don’t recall anyone saying marrying a second wife is a crime. Our culture permits that, and some Christians take more than one wife.There is a reason they say process and intent matter.
It is one thing to impregnate another woman ( adultery ) while you are still married without discussing with your wife your desire to marry a second wife, which our traditions demand. Since you are quoting our traditions on polygamy, have you forgotten there are rules for such engagements?
Most of us have parents who were born into polygamy. Who will tell you that their mothers brought the new wife home for their husbands, which is a sign of her giving her blessings to her husband.
I bet you know that is our culture and traditions. Taking a second wife because you impregnated her while still married is not noble; it is called adultery, and God punished most great men in the Bible you are quoting for such acts.
Going to marry the same woman without the knowledge of your wife until she finds out on social via a blog; is the worst kind of betrayal of trust. Nwannem, there is nothing noble in what you did. You don’t force polygamy on people when they are not prepared for it. Give them an option. Not everyone has the grace to be a polygamist.
So both traditionally and scripturally, you failed.
Don’t justify your indiscretions with impunity by citing religion and tradition. On both counts, you failed. Abraham, our father in faith, got thumbs up from his wife Sarah to lay with Hagar, the slave girl.
God punished David when he slept with Bethsheba and killed their first fruit born out of that fornication/adultery.
So many examples in the Bible regarding adultery and its consequences.
What you did, did not glorify our culture and traditions because it was done with impunity and with total disregard for the humanity of your wife. I bet if the table were turned on you, you wouldn’t be singing this same song of getting more fame and her getting endorsement.
What it shows is that you have no respect for her. I hope you find peace and rest.
Zukwanike. Ozugo. Rest
