Could Childlessness Be the Cause of the Crash of Ini Edo’s Marriage?

By on November 6, 2014

Desmond Elliot a few week ago used his Twitter page to call on Nigerians to pray for Ini Edo so that she could get pregnant. Sadly, the latter is officially separated from her hubby Philip Ehiagwina. The embattled Nigerian Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, has been explaining why she decided to walk out of her five-year old marriage unceremoniously.

According to the Ini Edo, she demanded for a divorce from her ex-husband because of a lot of irreconcilable differences. Contrary to reports that, her ‘barren marriage’ crashed following allegations of infidelity leveled against her by her husband, Ini Edo refuted the allegation, saying that she never cheated her husband since they got married.

In a tweet, confirming breaking up with her husband, Ini Edo alleged that,

“There is a conscious and malicious attempt at tarnishing my image. This saga is familiar, let’s not forget the past. Thanks and God bless.”

However, according to in­siders, the reason for the di­vorce suit was that Ini Edo could no longer bear the pres­sure being piled on her to get pregnant by all means. A source close to the actress disclosed,

“The problem has been going on for a long while now. You know, as Afri­cans, the need for children in a marriage is very important. It is what makes a woman the bona-fide wife to her husband and since Ini just wasn’t get­ting pregnant years after her marriage, her husband’s family lost patience. Maybe, Phillip wouldn’t have minded because of his deep love for Ini, but his family won’t settle for a child­less marriage.”

Ini Edo got married to her US-based husband, Philip Ehiagwina, about five years. The couple who lived separately for most of their marriage life decided to formally split in early August. There were reports that the bride price paid by Philip in 2008 has been returned. Ini has since removed her husband’s name from her social media accounts and she also removed wife from her bio on Instagram. The marriage did not produce any child.
