Jan 31, 2015 – Taiwo Hassan Ogogo: I Broke My Promise To My First Wife After Taking A 2nd Wife

In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beat, veteran Nollywood actor Taiwo Hassan opens up on how he hurt his first wife while planning to take a second wife.

The actor who said he vowed never to marry a 2nd wife spoke briefly on how he hurt his first wife when another woman came into his marriage.

See excerpts:

How did you meet your first wife?

We were in the same theatre group and I admired her a lot. I saw her and I was interested in her. I told her that I would like to marry her and she agreed. I later married another wife but I believe everything in life has to do with destiny. I vowed that I would not have a second wife because I never fancied polygamy but it happened and I believe it was for a reason. It is God’s doing.

When you told her you wanted to marry another wife, how did she react to the news?

She felt bad and I begged her. May God give us a good wife; if I had money I could have bought a hummer jeep to beg my wife but I am not that rich. I made her understand how it happened and that regardless, it would not change anything between us. I begged her to please accept it as our destiny and I appreciate her for her understanding.

But some women will either pack out of the house or make it unbearable for the man. Did such a thing happen to you?

Not at all, she did not do any of that. I asked my younger brother and two of my sisters to help me beg her. When they begged her, she said she believed that it is destiny.

What is the atmosphere in your house?

One thing I like about my first wife is that she encourages me to help people, especially my family members. She always makes sure I satisfy them if they need my help. When my mother was alive, she took good care of her. God is the only one that can forgive us our sins and I pray that he forgives me. I also pray my wife forgives me.

    Enough begging Mr. Hassan. It’s right of men in Islam to marry more than one wife. This is the way God designed it. Many said the same you said but never happened as planned. Those who claim “me and my wife alone”, never trust them. If you penetrate their secret life, it is so dirty.

    However, marrying second wife, according to Islam should never be at the expense of the former. Qur’an teaches us to marry 2 or 3 or 4 but if we can not do justice we should marry one.

    Justice Quran refers to means everything from satisfying them (wives) in bed, to taking care of them financially etc. Sincerely speaking though, i give kudos to your first wife. Such woman truly submitted her will to God Almighty. May God ease her affairs. Amin

    This is not God destiny is the handwork of devil. Well the first wife knew even if she refuses you will still keep the woman behind her back by either renting her a place outside and start having children.

    I am sure god has forgiven your sins. you must pray very hard not to bring in third wife and then beg both wives, assuring them is destiny.

    Note is not the wives who will suffer is the innocent children who will not have all what they require in future as such turn into dating sugar mummys or daddys for more and hence marry as second wives as well.

    I don’t agree that it is your destiny Mr. Ogogo,are you not flirting around before, there is a lady you dated for many years at Agege before she got married! Please don’t hide under God or Destiny to justify your shameless attitude! Your wife was not giving you problem, she was not barren, then what is your excuse for cheating on her for all those years before you finally take one of them as a second wife!!!
