Greed Crashed My Two Marriages – Veteran Actor, Akin Lewis Reveals
Veteran Actor, Akin Lewis In a recent interview with The Sun revealed how two of his marriages ended because his ex-wives were greedy, selfish and didn’t understand their roles as wives. Here are excerpts from the interview below;
You have been married twice and both marriages failed. Why didn’t any of your two marriages work out?
You will probably need to ask the women but I think they were just being greedy, they didn’t understand their roles as wives. But if there are other reasons, they will have to explain themselves. That’s what I can say about that. I think they were selfish; they wanted it all and do not understand what it means to be married to somebody like me.
As the man here, don’t you feel any sense of guilt that you probably didn’t manage the relationships well?
No! See, we all make mistakes because we are not perfect, but my people say that cutting off the head is not the cure for headache. That is why I said they were selfish; they wanted it all without thinking of the implications it would have on family. In management, we usually say that you make the error of judgment in employing someone. That is probably what happened. The error of judgment was mine.
What would you like to change about your past, if you have your way?
Still about those marriages, I want them deleted. Yeah, I would like them deleted because it is not funny when you give someone all you have and they take it for granted.
How much of satisfaction are you finding in your present relationship?
Certainly, I am enjoying it, that I have to keep asking God why He allowed me to wait this long.
How did you meet her?
I met her in my friend’s office.
At what point did you know you were going to marry her?
Well, it took a while. She gave more commitment to the relationship and that is what I know. You can easily compare, having gone through two before.
