Why I Remain Married to My Husband – Jaiye Kuti, Actress

Jaiye Kuti

Jaiye Kuti, an actress and filmmaker, gained notoriety when she admitted that many married women, including herself, have thought about ending their relationships.

She disclosed that she had made three attempts to leave her own marriage. In a recent interview with Saturday Beats, Kuti underlined the need of forgiveness and empathy when dealing with marital difficulties.

In her words;

“I actually wanted people to know that marriage is not a bed of roses. I want women to know that understanding has 150 per cent to do in the success of every marriage, because love is not enough.”

“Yes, you need to love one another. But, there will be a time when you will look at each other, and wonder how you got married in the first place. That is the point where understanding comes in.”

“Both spouses will have to understand that everybody is human, and are prone to mistakes. If the parties involved are not ready to forgive each other, they won’t be able to sustain the marriage.

“What if your husband cheats? Even men that don’t cheat could have other issues. I have been married for over 20 years. If I add the period of our courtship, that will be 25 years. My husband actually sponsored my education at the University of Lagos before we got married in 2000.”
