Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, who got married to Phillip Ehiagwina in 2008, and divorced him in 2013 has disclosed what led to the failure of the marriage.
In a recent interview, the screen diva said she got married early because she wanted to have a family so it wouldn’t seem that she chose career over family, even though her career is also very important.
She said: “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”.
She also said distance was one of the factors that affected her relationship with her husband, stating that being together actually helps 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,” she said.
The actress also dwelt on lessons learnt from her crashed marriage and how it has made her stronger stating.
“I try not to regret my actions so I will say it has been an experience which I have learnt a lot from” she said. “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.”
