‘We’re trying to console Yul’s first wife, our family didn’t support his action’ – Yul’s brother Uche Edochie breaks silence – FashionStyleng

Recall that the internet went agog on Wednesday, April 27, after Yul shocked everyone with the news about his second wife, who happens to be his colleague and actress, Judy Austin Muoghalu.

According to Uche, he feels for his sister in-law, and Yul’s first wife Mary Edochie, who didn’t agree before she married Yul, to go into a polygamous marriage with him. He added that their family isn’t in support of Yul’s action and decision.

He further noted that since Yul isn’t a Muslim, their family, as well as majority of Nigerians are finding it hard to accept the fact that Yul had to bring in a second wife into the family, when he has a wife, and children already.

Uche however feels it’s better to wish Yul and his family well, because if anyone who hasn’t been in Yul’s shoes find himself t., the person will do worse. After all, children are gift from God, and since Yul accepted the new born baby as his, so be it.

Uche Edochie’s statement read below.

“Hello guys. So my younger brother Yul Edochie just married a second wife out of the blue and Nigerians are freaking out. I get it. We are all shocked. I am a low key type of guy and I have tried to mind my own business but this circus is chasing me around too.

“So . is my take. I see two main problems .. His first wife Mary, a wonderful woman and my sister in law did not go into a relationship with my brother agreeing to be part of a polygamous marriage. That’s the first problem.

“So I feel for Mary. It is not fair on her. My family are not in support. This is not what we do and we are trying our best to console Mary. What else can we do?

“The second issue is that Yul is not a Muslim. If he was a Muslim, no one will be talking about this. Muslims marry as many wives as they want and nobody says shit.

“Traditional rulers and traditionalists of sorts do the same thing too and the Nigerian constitution recognizes polygamy as a legal marital union. Maybe we should burn that bloody constitution.

“We told Yul not to do it. He did it anyway. Have you ever tried controlling an adult when it comes to relationships? Good luck with that. Yul is an adult who feels marrying a second woman is the best way to own up to his mistakes and make things right. It took a lot of courage for him to do this too.

“A Muslim marries two or more wives and his people throw a party. Totally normal. A Christian does the same thing and he is the worst human being alive. It is tough. Women throw themselves at famous people so bad that it is suffocating.

“If the average person walks in Yul’s shoes for one year, they will get five or more women pregnant. So don’t be quick to judge if you have not lived that life. Most people will do worse. So this is Yul’s new baby with his new wife. Beautiful boy. Children are a gift from God. It is the circumstances of their birth that gets us all riled up about what’s right and wrong. I wish them all luck.

“Maybe Yul should become a Muslim and shut this circus down. It is said that life is what happens when we are making other plans. I was minding my own business. And now this. Fantastic.”
