Actress Georgina Onouha Opens Up About Her Failed Marriage
Hey guys? Do you all remember beautiful Nigerian actress Georgina Onuoha? She was one of those faces we all loved to see in those days and she very popular in the late 90s and early 2000s. She left the limelight to settle down and relocated to the United States to be with her medical doctor beau, Dr. Ifeanyi Igwegbe.
Surprisingly, in a public battle, the family of the husband showed their disapproval of the union. Though Georgina was one of Nollywood's most respected actress, her in-laws felt their brother/son deserved better.
She was looked down upon by the husband's family simply because she was an actress.
Luckingly for Onuoha, her man stood by her through out the struggles. The couple later had peace and the family seemed to have respected the decisions of the 'two grown adult.' The marriage was blessed with two beauiful daughters.
Just recently, Onuoha returned back to acting after many years of being a loving wife and a mother. Rumors had it that her marriage had hit the rock.
Onuoha, known for her maturity in handling sensitive issues, kept quiet for a while until now.
On January 7, she took to her Facebook page where she opened up about her marriage and yes, it ended in 2012.
In one of the most diplomatic ways to disclose a bad news, she shared this very emotional yet inspiring post about her failed marriage.
“It has taken almost four years to do this; it’s taken a lot of soul searching, prayers and counseling to get to this juncture. It’s not a breaking news that my almost a decade relationship is over.While I do this with highest respect for my kids, family, friends, I also do owe you my fans my sincere gratitude for your support and prayers. A lot has been put out there on the internet about my marriage. I crave your indulgence to please pray for my family.
There are no victors or vanquish(ed). I still have tremendous respect for the father of my kids and I ask same from you all. He is a good man and a great father, the fact that this marriage did not work is our failures as two adults. I take full responsibility for the part I played in it.While marriage ends, true friendship never dies. We remain good friends and great parents to our two lovely daughters. We will do our best to give them the best life has to offer. Once again, thanks for all your love and support through the years.
Sincerely yours, Georgina Onuoha.
“Ps: I leave this with you. Have you ever watched a film and a certain character or saying strikes a chord in your very soul and you think THAT IS JUST LIKE ME (?).Yes?
Me too. I watched the film, The Holiday for the first time the other day. And I sobbed my heart out. Have you watched it? You should. A part of my soul resonated so loudly with Kate Winslet’s character, Iris it actually scared me.
I, at some point in my life, had felt the deep pain that she was feeling in that film.And what pain was that? The pain of a broken heart. The pain of feeling worthless and used. The pain of having someone toy with your emotions repeatedly and relentlessly and view it as a game. I have felt that. I have lived that. It isn’t nice.
“If you have never had your heart broken, then I hope – with every fiber of my mended but scarred heart – that you never experience it. I really do. However, if you have experienced it, then I am talking to you. I know how you feel, believe me – I do.
Whether you have been lied to or warn (run) down, I want you to know this: No matter how bad it gets or how low you feel, you will come out of it. You will recover. Because you are special. TY”.
