Every since the news of Yul Edochie’s second wife went viral, Nigerians have been continuously debating against and in support of Yul’s abrupt decision to add a new wife to his wife May Edochie.
While women are faulting Yul’s decision and stating how totally cruel his abrupt actions are, some men are putting his back with the age old mantra of “men are polygamous in nature”. Are men really polygamous in nature? Or they are selectively adventurous with their sexual desires and need for affection.
In some African cultures and religion, polygamy is an accepted norm, and isn’t a big deal as women often gather to welcome new wives into families and households, and so it fits very well. While in the more Christian cultures, polygamy is not accepted, even biblically.
This is the reason for the backlash that lots of Nigerians are giving to Yul. And moreso, for the fact that he had continuously commended his first wife as being a loyal woman who had stuck with him in the past and had remained married to him for seventeen years. Nigerian women have questioned the loyalty of intentions of Yul after only deciding to marry a second wife without regard to his first wife, just because blogs threatened to expose him, with his first wife equally finding out a day after on social media, that he had performed the traditional rites of his side chic turned second wife.
