Why my marriage to Philip Ehiagwina crashed - Actress, Ini Edo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Ini Edo, a well-known Nollywood actress, has discussed the reasons why her marriage to Philip Ehiagwina, her ex-husband, ended in divorce.

In a recent interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV's Rubbing Minds shows, the 40-year-old movie diva discussed her marriage.

The actress, who wed Phillip in 2008 but filed for divorce six years later, said that their distance caused their union to fail.

She believed that if they had remained together, they could have been able to communicate and understand one another more effectively, leading to a successful union.

The single mother noted that her husband's family's opposition to some of the roles she portrayed in movies also contributed to their failing marriage.

She says, "No matter the indifference or incompatibility if you're together in love, many things can work out.

"However, you don't get to work things out when there is no contact. When you are with someone, and you can't agree on certain things or find common ground, I think being together could have helped us understand each other better.

"Most of the time, we attract the wrong people, sometimes for the wrong reasons. Because when people come to you because of what they see on TV, it's hard for them to accept you because you are just acting because that is your job.

"When they find out that it's not the real you, it becomes a problem. Marriage is an experi­ence which I don't regret. My ex-husband met me as an actress. My job takes my time because, naturally, there are certain roles you are not allowed to play once you are married.

"Even if your husband understands, his relatives might not understand. My ex-husband is the last child, so family interference in the marriage was normal."
