Nollywood actor and self-styled cleric Yul Edochie recently shared his thoughts on marriage and divorce.

In a candid interview with White Pearl Studios, the controversial movie star emphasized that there is nothing wrong with ending a marriage that isn’t working.

“For me, marriage is not a do or die thing. If you see it is not working, walk away respectfully. You don’t have to hurt each other,” Edochie said. He highlighted that one’s happiness should be the priority, not public opinion.

Edochie further added, “When you walk away and you see the next person and you decide to marry, go ahead and marry. If e no work again, go. If you see another one, marry. If e no work again, go. You can marry 50 times as long as it works for you.”

The actor believes that personal happiness varies from person to person and people should find what works best for them. “You can’t control how people react towards you. And what makes me happy is different from what makes you happy. Don’t let anybody tell you what’s good for you. Find out what works for you. And if you decide in this life that you will not marry till you die, please do. Be happy,” he advised.
