Marriage is not ‘do or die’ – Yul Edochie shares advice

Controversial Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie, has dished some words of advice to couples about the institution of marriage.

The Nollywood star stated that marriage is not a ‘do-or-die affair.’ This came on the back of colleague Bolanle Ninalowo’s marriage to Bunmi hitting the rocks.

Taking to his Facebook page on Saturday, Edochie, who is entangled in marital crisis himself, advised couples not to force things in their union.

The father of five explained that marriage as an institution does not have a set formula for the long-lasting success.

Yul wrote; “Marriage is a beautiful thing, don’t let anyone discourage you. If your dream is to get married, go ahead and achieve your dream.

“A few tips can help you have a long-lasting marriage but there is no laid down proven formula to it. You can marry someone you dated for 10 years and the marriage won’t last.

“You can marry someone you met yesterday and have a long-lasting marriage. And most times the main reason for a marriage crash is not revealed on social media. Only the couple know exactly what went wrong.

“Marriage is also not a do-or-die affair. Try your best to make it work, if it doesn’t, it’s not the end of the world. Wish yourselves well and move on. Some journeys last forever while some have to end for others to begin. Love and peace always.”
