Veteran Nollywood Actress, Georgina Onuoha has schooled her younger colleague Yul Edochie on polygamy, tradition and Christianity.
The veteran actress who was a prominent screen diva in the early 2000s made out time to educate Yul Edochie on Friday, 10th June on her Instagram handle @georginaonuoha.
The schooling came shortly after Yul who has been under public scrutiny for months, boasted how his second marriage has brought blessings to his family.
Recall Yul, the youngest son of Veteran Actor Pete Edochie had openly taken another colleague of his, Judy Austin as second wife after she had a son for him.
Since the incident happened, the actor despite being fiercely criticized for his actions has never stopped flaunting and promoting his second wife on social media.
However, fans and social media users who had perhaps expected the actor to own up to his actions and show his first wife, May Edochie some respect were shocked when he boasted about how his actions brought him blessings.
The actor while breaking the news of his first wife’s endorsement deal on his IG handle @yuledochie noted that what others saw as a problem has become a blessing to his family.
Although he used the opportunity to apologized to his first wife, May, Yul went on to reference some noble men in the bible who had more than one spouse.
While justifying his action, Yul said, “don’t be deceived by the white man’s culture.
Same White people that condemn polygamy are encouraging men to marry their fellow men. In the end judgement is for God. Even white people don’t understand God fully. Nobody does, actually. That’s why He remains God.”
Reacting to the post, Mrs Onuoha who made a separate post and tagged Yul educated him on what culture, tradition, polygamy and respect in marriage means.
she 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’s 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.
Marrying the same woman without the knowledge of your wife until she finds out on social media via a blog; is the worst kind of betrayal of trust.
Eyin, 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 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, 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 and for yourself and kids. I hope you find peace and rest. Zukwanike. Ozugo. Rest.” she added.
