During her book launch in Ghana over the weekend, celebrity mum and actress, Juliet Ibrahim opened up on her divorce and dealing with the pain of cruel judgments from the public who have no clue what her experience was or how the sum of it affected her.
Whilst admonishing the public to resist the temptation of judging a person who wants out of a marriage, the star actress appealed to women to quit their ‘unwholesome marriages’ for the sake of their sanity and mental stability. Where kids are involved, the mum advised that women in unwholesome marriages make a bold decision, regardless.
According to the single mum, sometimes it is better to come out of a marriage than to stay in it. She told Citi News that her own marriage in a dark place where she was miserable.
Read what she said below:
“People have had their own perception about what led to my divorce.
I have sat down for many years and have had to deal with the pain and insults from the public who had no clue what I went through as a person during that period and how it affected me.
The depression and all that happened. All I will say is you should never judge someone who wants to come out of a marriage.
Because sometimes it is better to come out of it than to stay in it. For your own sanity and mental stability it us always good to take a bold decision for yourself.
For your kids, if there are kids involved take a bold decision,”
Juliet Ibrahim had before now revealed that her marriage was a mistake which shouldn’t have happened while pointing out that her ex-husband’s family was never in support of it.
She reportedly married Kwadwo Safo in 2010, after she got pregnant for him in the course of their friendship. They were however granted a divorce in June 2014, after he allegedly cheated on her.
