May, wife of controversial actor Yul Edochie is not backing down from her stance against polygamy.
The entrepreneur took to her Instagram page on Friday, where she reacted to a recent public apology from her soon-to-be ex-husband.
Yul apologized to May in an Instagram post on Thursday, a month after revealing he fathered a child with his colleague and second wife Judy Austin.
In his apology the actor said: “My dear wife, Queen May Yul-Edochie, I admit that I have hurt you a lot and I have apologized to you countless times.
“I take responsibility for my actions. I agree with you that polygamy should not be forced on anyone. You never bargained from the start, neither did I. But I guess life happens. You already know the whole story.
“I didn’t do it to disrespect you. I didn’t do it to replace you, or because I don’t love you anymore, no. I will always love you and I will always have you.’
However, May reiterated that she would not be “forced to accept polygamy”.
The mother of four previously revealed after her birthday in September. In a post shared on her Instagram page, May clarified that although they appeared at the birthday party, she will not be returning to the wedding with Yul.
In Friday’s post, May said that while she forgave the actor, she had not negotiated a polygamous marriage and would not have accepted it.
“Forgiveness is the highest/most beautiful form of love for me. There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. Therefore, my ability to forgive past, present and future mistakes in relation to the matter on earth is for the benefit of my mental health and inner peace,” he wrote.
“I decided to hold on to love… Hate is too much of a burden to bear. I’m still not very capable of hating anyone, let alone the father of my children. The point is that anyone can choose to practice polygamy, but they can never be forced to accept what was negotiated.
“To confirm my positions, I will not be tricked into accepting polygamy, which goes against my beliefs, faith and values. They won’t count me out in a house we started building with love, faith, tears, hope and prayer, in a Catholic marriage of 18 years, after a long relationship before marriage.
May also asked the actors to end their “constant ‘show’ in the social media space”, where their children are also present.
“Let’s prevent our lovely children from all the ongoing series of drama that can directly (or) indirectly affect them among their peers. May God in his infinite mercy and compassion guide us all in the right direction,” he wrote.
