According to online rumour, Ini Edo’s marriage crashed because every little man in Lagos with money was running through her project—left, right and center. And no man should be expected to keep such a woman as a wife so her US-based husband ended their 5 years of marriage.

That is the rumour but at least, Ini Edo and the rumour agree on one thing; the marriage has ended and divorce has been filed.

According to Ini Edo, she filed for divorce because of the usual ‘irreconcilable differences’ which can mean everything under the sun.

If you’ve been wondering why most celebrities always cite ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for divorce, let me explain how things work in Family Law to you…

In Family Law, there is a single ground for divorce which is; the marriage has irretrievably broken down. However, irretrievable break down must be proved in one of the five different specific ways (in England and Wales under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973); Adultery, Unreasonable Behaviour, Desertion, 2 Years of Separation with Consent or 5 Years of Separation.

When it comes to other jurisdictions like the USA, a spouse may get a no-fault divorce based on a breakdown of the marriage which is legally termed as “irreconcilable differences” or “incompatible of temperament”.

This means the couple can’t agree on fundamental issues involving the marriage or their family, and they never will agree.

So ‘irreconcilable differences’ actually may mean a lot but because a person is not required to state more when he or she goes for ‘irreconcilable differences’, a lot of people run for that so to hide the dirty things…

By going for “irreconcilable differences” or “incompatible of temperament”, this legally means the breakdown occurred through no fault of the spouses, without blame to one another—so it is a decent way of seeking divorce.

Mostly, when irreconcilable differences is cited, the Court looks for; conflict of personality, whether there is mutual concern for the emotional needs of each other, whether the marriage suffers from financial difficulties, long physical separation, difference of interests, resentment, distrust, constant bickering, irreversible antagonistic feelings and others…

So ini Edo’s “irreconcilable differences” may mean that there is distrust—and what causes distrust? It could also be that the marriage suffers from financial difficulties or any of the above and more…

Did she say THANK GOD? What for…?

  1. Ooh wow!! well am not surprise….. ppl were talking a lot about her marriage how her in laws didn’t like her she haven’t been able to have kids since she got married. well Ini Divorce is nasty…but thank God there’s no kids involve.

    1. How will she have kids if she lives in Nigeria chasing after men and the man stays in USA? I guess have kids through skype

      1. DId you say skype? linda skype is old news, am thinking through viber and whatsapp, better still tango. She sound very happy though. I don’t think she liked the man enough.

        1. oh come on, you kraa what do you know about marriage? She’s not happy but gotta move on. She can’t be crying over this forever.

  3. If she couldn’t have kids in the marriage it could also be a fault from the man. African men are sometime too proud to go for medicals to check their reproductive system but they are soo quick to blame everything on the female. Especially her in-laws always pointing fingers at her. Not cool.

    1. I agree with you ….the women always get the blame for not having kids….they refused to understand that the problem maybe from a men too

    2. TRue, most african men cant get women pregnant and he could be the one at fault. Is sad it ended this way. Ini dear, don’t worry your missing ribs would soon find you. She’s my girl so gotta defend her always.

  5. At the end of the day Ini Edo is just stupid to have married and let the man stay in USA while she stays in Nigeria. or the man is stupid to have married a woman and allow her to stay in Nigeria while he stays in USA. What is the point of such a marriage? Married people must work together and live together and when these two are not possible, don’t go into marriage else it will break down. What did they expect for living 5 years apart?

  7. I’m so glad Ini is FINALLY divorced, cs that marriage was a stand-still, nothing came out & good thing they didn’t hve kids. She can nw mingle fr a while and wait on a 2nd marriage, & I’m positive her 2nd “husband” will give her kids.

  9. i think this union came to an end b’cuz of children and despite the fact that Ini’s ex hubby has got two kids from another women doesn’t mean he can’t have any medical condition and plus i think both of them were not compatible in terms of having children. I believe that Ini will have children with the next man that come’s her way. This situations are common and it happens all the time.
