Nollywood actress Padita Agu has taken to social media to open up on her failed marriage.

The actress via her YouTube page opened up on how she met and married her ex-husband alongside the three-year-old marriage was torturous for her.

According to the actress;

”This guy and I have been talking over the phone and we got to the point of agreeing to be married. So he decided to sell me this wonderful idea, that how about we go on some adventure, let’s get married the very first day we get to see because all this while we have been talking, I don’t remember his face. I haven’t seen him. He just saw me once when I came to my friend’s place to console her. He might I see me in my movies, I don’t know. All I know is that at this point, we don’t really know each other. We haven’t seen each other but we have been talking over the phone. I don’t remember his face, I don’t remember how he looks but we have been talking so we are so familiar but not just facially.

So he said okay, how about we try some adventure, we arrange marriage and we just see ourselves right at the registry when we are getting married. I was like wow, that’s deep, that is serious. I was like what would my family say? What would I say to them> I was just scared but excited at the same time. So he said for my family, we don’t have to tell them about the secret marriage. So once we are done, we would go and meet them as though we were just dating and we tell them we want to get married and we take it from there.

So once we get married, maybe years later, if we had kids and all that, we can now open up to them and say ‘oh, by the way, we had a secret wedding. At that point, it wouldn’t matter because then, we are already married. And as for him and I, once we do it and we meet ourselves and we realise we don’t want this anymore, as quietly as we did it, we would just go and undo it.

So I thought to myself, there is no harm in this. If we don’t want it again, we dissolve it quietly like he said and my family don’t have to know because eventually, we would wed properly. So, I thought it was a nice idea.

So, I went to the registry because he was out of the country at the time. I went to the registry, got us registered. The day came, it was my birthday. He also chose my birthday to make it special. So I felt wow, this is amazing. That day I didn’t tell anyone. In between, he told me not to tell anyone. that if I tell people, nobody would encourage it for some negative reason. Some might be jealous.

On the wedding day, I arrived at the registry with a cab. He arrived with a cab. The cabman who brought me signed as my witness while the one who brought him signed as his witness. and we wedded. From there, we went to see my family to tell them we were dating and wanted to get married.

The marriage lasted for three years and that three year is the worst I have ever gone through in my almost four decades of living to the point I attempted suicide. I just wanted to kill myself and end it. There was this thing about actresses not staying in marriage so I just couldn’t see myself leaving and so I just wanted to stay there. Since I couldn’t leave, I thought I should just end this whole trouble. I know some of you would be like this is why this girl left the industry. Yes, this is why I left the industry. He didn’t tell me to leave directly but indirectly, he got me out of the industry, cut me off everyone, everything…my career, my school, my family, friends…except friends he was okay with them”

On lessons she learnt, she said;

1. Never give in to pressure be it parental, peer group or societal.

2. Never assume you are familiar with someone you are chatting on talking with on the phone or social media. This goes to people in long distant relationships. Never commit deeply until you see that person.

3. Never settle for a spouse you are not compatible with

4. Never leave in Isolation.
