Yvonne Jegede Reflects on Marriage and Financial Struggles in Candid Interview

Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has opened up about her reasons for leaving her marriage, candidly stating that in hindsight, she should have married for money instead of love.

In a recent interview on The Honest Bunch Podcast, Jegede discussed her marriage to ex-husband Olakunle ‘Abounce’ Fawole, revealing how dynamics changed once they were married.

Jegede recounted that after they wed, her ex-husband began to take issue with how she spoke to him, particularly highlighting their age difference, which had never been a problem before. “He is eight years older than me,” she said. “But the moment we got married, if I tell him, ‘You dey crase,’ he would say I’m disrespecting him. I would then be like, ‘It’s the same me, same thing I’ve been saying for over 10 years.'”

One of the significant reasons Jegede left the marriage was due to financial responsibilities. She disclosed, “I was bringing more of the money. Now I’m taking care of my son like nobody exists around me and it’s not easy, it’s not funny. I should have gone for money instead of love. Let me be very honest.”

Her revelations have sparked various reactions on social media, with many users discussing financial responsibilities in marriages.

An Instagram user commented, “May we not marry men who don’t take responsibility.” Another user advised, “As a guy, nor let money finish for your hand sha😢😢. Try ur best🙏.”

However, not all comments were sympathetic. One user remarked, “Anything a woman does for a man is never forgotten, but she might not always recall the times when the man supported her.

Some women have selective memories, and it’s like they have two sides to them.”

Jegede’s openness has ignited a broader conversation about the importance of financial stability and responsibility within marriage, illustrating the complex interplay between love and financial security
