The award-winning actress, Ini Edo opened up about why her marriage to Philip Ehiagwina failed, and according to her, it had something to the with distance.

She reveals this during an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels Television’s Rubbing Minds show. The actress disclosed that one of the factors that caused the collapse of her marriage was distance.

She stated that her distance from her former husband did not give them the opportunity to understand one another.

She said;

“No matter the indifference or incompatibility, if you’re together in love, a lot of things can actually work out. Howbeit, you don’t get to work things out when there is no contact.

When you are with someone, and you can’t agree on certain things or find a common ground, I think being together could have actually helped us to understand each other better,” she reiterated.

“Most of the time, we attract the wrong people, sometimes for the wrong reasons. Because when people come to you because of what they see on TV, it’s hard for them to accept you considering the fact that you are just acting because that is your job. When they find out that it’s not the real you, it becomes a problem.

“Marriage is an experi­ence which I don’t regret. My husband met me as an actress. My job takes my time because naturally there are certain roles you are not allowed to play once you are married. Even if your husband understands, his relatives might not understand. My husband is the last child, so family interference in the marriage was normal.

“Marriage has taught me a lot of lessons, it made me wiser and stronger. I think it actually made me more mature. I don’t think I married too early, maybe I was a little bit in a hurry.”

Ini Edo and Philip Ehiagwina tied the knot in 2008, amid several controversies from his ex-wife, Ruth Okoro. However, their union did not last, as at 2014, they got officially divorced.
