Pete Edochie, a veteran Nigerian actor, has put his own perspective on the rising trend of divorce and remarriage in today’s world.
That behavior, he claims, is not African, and our ladies must learn not to be like White women.
During a recent interview, the actor stated that it is not in the character of Nigerians to divorce and remarry as frequently as white women.
“A lot of you run out of your husband’s houses …what is the excuse? He was cheating on me! Solomon had 1000 wives and 700 concubines. If your husband is cheating on you and he now decides to take many more wives, what are you going to do? Nothing! Absolutely nothing!
If you think your husband leaves the house and says he is going on a tour and he is going to have an affair outside, put a packet of condom in his bag. When he sees it, psychologically, he is going to think this woman has my interest at heart. If it is his intention to stray, he’ll pull himself together.
But you women are not even creative. You want to be like white women who keep on divorcing and remarrying. It doesn’t suit us. It doesn’t go down well with us. No!”he said
The actor also talked about how his 15-year-old mother was married off to his 40-year-old father many years ago. He made the point that his mother was not in love with his father.
“My mother was not educated. She was not in love with my father. My father was almost 40 when his uncle told him it was time he got married. He told them to get a wife for him.
My uncle went out to a neighboring village and told them the teacher wanted to get married. The women came out. He looked around and picked one and that was it.
He brought this 15-year-old who didn’t have the courage to look at my father. She gave him ten children and was still shy. Seven boys and three girls” he said
