May Edochie, the first wife of ace filmmaker and actor, Yul, has once again spoken about her husband’s decision to take in a second wife. In her words, May stated that she would not be cajoled into polygamy.

In April, the movie star took to his verified Instagram page to announce to the world that he has another wife, Judy Austin Muoghalu, despite being married to May for about 17 years; a union that produced four children.

While announcing his second wife, who is an actress, Yul Edochie further revealed that Judy Austin has a son for him.

In a recent post on her Instagram account, May Edochie stated that she would not be cajoled into polygamy as it does not align with her values in life.

She wrote in a lengthy post, “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 and 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.

The movie star’s wife further said, “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.

“Life is made up of an infinite amount of choices. Most decisions might be tough to make, but whenever we confront our options with courage and confidence, we should equally be open to the paths of our own design. I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought that comes with it in our lifetime.

“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. Thank you all for your continuous prayers, love and support. May God bless you abundantly.”
