No, I won't - Nkechi Achilike, businesswoman
Divorce is completely out of the way. Everybody has his own life to live. But open sex is out of the way. Because of my kids I will stay to get my own inheritance. Anyway, I don’t think he will have time for my sex, so I will stay.
I won’t divorce -Obiamaka Aniegunam, PR consultant
I will not divorce him because being famous has its ups and downs and one of them is being exposed to lust from the opposite sex. One should also bear in mind that it sometimes gets boring being with one person for so long especially for the men. Even from the biblical point of view, one should forgive.
No way -Folorunsho Alakija, fashion designer
No, I will not divorce him. He needs prayers.
Not an option -Omoshaba Grace, journalist
No, I will not divorce him if there is no threat to life and I am legally married to him. If he still loves me and I love him too, it can still work out.
It needs introspection -Temitope David-Adegboye, Celebrity writer
I guess the situation would require me to examine myself too, rather than pass judgment hastily. Fourteen mistresses? Something must be wrong with our relationship. If in the end I find it’s me that caused it, I guess I will let him go. On the other hand, if it’s just his position and money that entered his head, I guess we may have to talk things out. I feel that with all these wahala he has faced in few weeks, he won’t ever go back to it. So, I might just stand by him.
I say no -Funmi Azike, beautician
Nigerian factor, family and extended family might not allow me divorce someone of that status. And you know, we black women like to preserve our marriages no matter the degrading cost.
I won’t try that -Aramide Oikelome, journalist
No, I won’t divorce him so long as I am his only lawfully wedded wife.
It won’t be wise -Bibian Egwuatu, Immigration officer
She who deserts the husband because he was tempted is not a good wife. A lot of women are out there waiting to enter and will tolerate the man so far their own right reaches them.
I will show him love -Rubby Acholonu, businesswoman
Since she was married to the man before he had concubines, she should be there. Again since the man loves her, she should love the man and take care of the house. Since the man did not bring the women home, she should stay and show the man love may be one day the man can repent and drive away those women.
I want just his repentance -Atim Ikpeme, journalist
I will not divorce him if he shows remorse and returns home. He is my husband and father of my children.
Woods is no exception -Mary Eziashi, company CEO
Ninety nine per cent of men cheat not to talk of a young man with that kind of wealth. I will rather concentrate in keeping my marriage by ignoring the rubbish scandal and beg him in the bedroom to protect himself well from STD and HIV if he must do mistresses. As long as I am loved and cared for by my cheating husband, I would stay. Men are animalistic in nature when it comes to sex. It is only by God’s grace that good wives stay in marriage. This is simply the fact of life.
I won’t divorce -Dorcas James, teacher
If I were his wife, I will not divorce him because marriage is all about facing challenges together no matter how tough. It is also about true love, which forgives.
I leave him to his God -Agatha Emeadi, journalist
I will not divorce him because death is the only recommended reason according to the Bible. His adultery is for him and his God.
