May 12, 2015 – Mercy Aigbe Divorces First Husband, Blames Evil Mother-In-Law For Marriage Crash

Popular Nollywood actress recently revisited her first divorce and blamed the whole marriage problem on her first husband’s mother.

According to the Edo-born mother of two, her then mother-in-law didn’t want her to marry a man from another tribe as a Benin lady.

She said because she was young and naive then, she picked up issues with her ‘evil mother in-law’ which eventually led to the marriage crash.

In her words;

“I had a bad experience the first time, so I had some reservations and I just wanted to face my career, even though I loved him. I decided to put my trust in God and just go with the flow. I was happy and scared at the same time. Then, I was young and naive. Now, I handle issues differently. Also, the major reason my first marriage failed was because my ex-husband’s mum did not want him to marry from another tribe”.

Mercy Aigbe addresses controversies in her new marriage:

 “I do not think I have had any controversies since I got married. They were just misconceptions. People thought I married a married man and I was a second wife. What they did not know or care to know was that he was already a divorcee when we met”.

Aigbe is still happily married to her hotelier husband, Lanre Gentry who has been her financial backbone since.

      why do some of you talk and make comment senselessly, she said her ex mother in law never wanted her son to marry from another tribe, no matter what she does, it would be right in the eyes of this in law….. even some sons because they know whom their mother is, wouldn’t want to live around their family, my dear some in laws are terrible…. i mean listen and read your own comment….if your mother in law does not like you she simply doesn’t and it doesn’t have to be the fault of a daugther in law… be wise my dear

    As far as God is concerned, you are committing adultery with your so called new husband while your first husband is still alive. My advice to you is to go back to your first love (husband) if you want to make heaven.

    Jojo bible does not support divorce except adultery and if such occurs they must be settled and is only death can separate them

    Hi friend,l went through the same problem with my mother in-law.She do not want her son to marry outside the village.She did all she can to separate us.At the end he married a phillippino.He married his dead.l am writing a book about this and will be made into a movie.What GOD has joined together, no man put asunder.l Loved this man so much ,that his mother separated us.Some of this mother in-laws have good husbands, and the messing with your home.God forgive them.
