Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite has revealed that her marriage to Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh has thought her some lessons she hopes never to repeat.
According to her, even though she is not ready to marry again now, she won’t repeat the mistakes from that marriage should she decide to marry again.
Damilola and Chris got married in 2015 and together they have a son, Brian. After a series of denials that their marriage had hit the rocks it was finally confirmed in 2017 that they were no longer together.
Asked if she has plans of marrying again any time soon, she told Punch that, “Of course, why not? I never say never. This time, I will be looking out for a man; he has to be a man (in the real sense of the word).
“I don’t try to foresee things as I prefer to live in the moment. I learnt a lot from my past experience (in marriage) and I may have to write a book about it.”
She added that “There are quite a lot of things and I wouldn’t want to single out one. If I single it out, it may seem like the most important one when it’s not so; they are all very important.”
Shortly after it became public knowledge that they were no longer together Chris Attph explained that the reason most marriages don’t work is that ‘we’ have forgotten what the fundamentals of marriage are.
“When you love someone it is important to be able to forgive, to be able to respect, to be able to submit. As a woman, you need to trust the captain of the ship. It’s really important if you want peace in your home,” he said.
He noted that he does not regret marrying the Nigerian actress. “I believe that life is too short for regrets and everything happens for a reason. I have a beautiful baby boy. I have a wealth of experience and I have a lot of work to do.”
