I Try Not To Regret Walking Out Of My 6-Year-Old Marriage - Nollywood Actress, Ini Edo Opens Up

While speaking in a Channels TV programme, 'Rubbin Minds', multi-award winning Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, who has featured in more than 100 movies since she began her film career in 2000, opened up on her marriage, saying she has no regret breaking up with her husband of six years.
The Akwa Ibom state born actress got married to an American-based Nigerian businessman, Phillip Ehiagwina in 2008. She walked out of the marriage in September 2014, following accusations of domestic violence and cheating.
The actress who spoke on her marriage crisis, cited irresolvable differences and incompatibility as the major reasons for the crash of her marriage, adding that closeness should have, may be, saved her marriage since her former husband was in America and she in Nigeria.
She said, “May be being together would have helped keep us together. Because it would enable us study and understand each other more. May be it would have helped but I’m not sure.” 
When she was asked if her estranged husband was comfortable with her kind of job, she said, “He met me an actress and I believe he was okay with that. Actually he complained. My work takes my time and interferes with so many things.

“I tried to keep my (movie) roles as decent as possible when I got married. But naturally, there are certain roles you won’t be allowed to play. Even when you are allowed to play them, you can reject them not just because of your husband but you got relations as well.”
When also asked if her former husband’s family interfered in her marriage, she added, “He was the last child, so family members will try to see if their child is doing okay.

“I try not to regret (the time I spent in marriage) but I will say, it’s been an experience I have learnt a lot from. It made me a stronger person. It made me wiser and I think it actually made me more mature.”
