Why My First Marriage Crashed -Mercy Aigbe
The popular Yoruba actress, Mercy Aigbe has revealed why her first marriage didn’t work out.
She revealed this in an interview with Punch newspapers in Lagos. The actress said that she was young, naïve and most importantly had an issue coping with her ex-mother in-law.
She told Punch that her mother in-law was never in support of her marriage due to tribalism.
In her words: “I had a bad experience the first time, so I had some reservations and I just wanted to face my career, even though I loved him. I decided to put my trust in God and just go with the flow. I was happy and scared at the same time. Then, I was young and naive. Now, I handle issues differently. Also, the major reason my first marriage failed was because my ex-husband’s mum did not want him to marry from another tribe,” she said.
She also clears the air on the allegation of ‘husband snatcher’ and the rumour that she was being married as a second wife to her present husband, saying that her husband was already divorced before their marriage.
“I do not think I have had any controversies since I got married. They were just misconceptions. People thought I married a married man and I was a second wife. What they did not know or care to know was that he was already a divorcee when we met,” she concluded.
