Husband of the late Lady of Songs, Christy Essien Igbokwe, Chief Edwin Igbokwe, has lashed the Nigerian media on how they have wrongfully managed his marriage to another woman, which was held on 19th of April, 2014 in Owerri, Imo State. The new lovebirds later held their white wedding ceremony on Easter Monday, the 21st of April in Awka.

According to Chief Edwin Igbokwe, he had granted an interview to a print medium where he said he was not going to remarry, but that he did not expect he could not cope alone.

“Nobody expected what happened to happen. I thought I could stay alone, but I discovered it wasn’t possible and it would have been very terrible if people started seeing different women coming in and out of my house. I wanted a responsible situation. I want to live longer,” he said.

Chief Igbokwe further stated that his new wife has been a family friend since after the war and was close to the family before his late wife’s demise and as such deemed it fit to get betrothed to her since she was well known among the family and he needed someone to appreciate.

“What people don’t know is that you need a partner to quarrel with. Once you get married, you feel a different life and when that life is cut off from you, you will feel dejected. Even if it’s from morning till night that you quarrel with your wife and you still sleep together and wake up, you will appreciate her,” Chief Igbokwe noted.

There is NOTHING wrong in remarrying after the daeth of a spouse.

Its those who profess being HOLY  but  have more than ONE wife/husband that I am WORRIED about.

Good one! U can't satisfy evrybody. If you sample women everyday,changing them per day,people will call you irresponsible. If you then decide 2 get married,people will say you killed your spouse. U can't satisfy humans.

That's true .....some would say a widow is quick to re-marry especially if they have teenage children.
Largely  in our society some still feel women are second class citizens which is not fair.

It is not easy to be alone.....it is not healthy at all.

“What people don’t know is that you need a partner to quarrel with. Once you get married, you feel a different life and when that life is cut off from you, you will feel dejected. Even if it’s from morning till night that you quarrel with your wife and you still sleep together and wake up, you will appreciate her,”
