After almost two years of her divorce, Nollywood actress, Ini Edo finally opens up on her failed marriage to her USA based husband Philip Ehiagwina.
She said she got married initially because of her desire to have a family, so it wouldn’t look as if she prioritized her career over family, though maintaining her career is of great importance to her.
“Basically there would never be a particular reason. You know how these things work. It’s like I said, differences. I mean, incompatibility. Not being able to reach certain compromises or finding common ground.”
In addition, she said distance played a big role in breaking her marriage, asserting that being together actually helps a lot in understanding.
“Distance plays a very important role in a relationship, no matter the difference or incompatibility. If you are together a lot, you can find a way to work things out.”
“I try not to regret my actions so I will say it has been an experience which I have learnt a lot from. It’s made me a stronger person, it made me wiser and I think it has actually made me more matured. So I won’t say that I regret anything; I’ll say that I have learnt my lesson.”
Ini Edo got married to Philip Ehiagwina on November 29th 2008, the marriage lasted for a period of five years, and they finally divorced in 2013.
