My Two Marriages Failed Because My Ex-wives Were Greedy - I’m In My Third Marriage – Nollywood Actor, Akin Lewis Says

Veteran Nollywood actor, Akin Lewis, has blamed the greediness of his two ex-wives for why his previous marriages crashed.
In an interview with TheSun, when asked why his two previous marriages failed, he said: “You will probably need to ask the women, but I think they were just being greedy, they didn’t understand their roles as wives. 

On whether he was the one who didn’t manage the relationships well, Lewis said: “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 a headache. 

That is why I said they were selfish; they wanted it all without thinking of the implications it would have on the 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.”

Mr Lewis who stopped wearing a ring years ago said wedding rings that Nigerians so cherish doesn’t stop young ladies from having an affair with a married man.

In a recent telephone chat with Sunday Scoop, the actor revealed why he married three times.

See excerpts:

“I am in the category of people who don’t have to wear wedding rings to show that they are married.

Every married man is in trouble; with ring or not, women will come. For me, I have been in this business for a long time.

“Doctors get to a point you don’t call them doctors anymore. They call them ‘mister’ because they are more experienced than consultants.

So, I think I have gotten to that level that I don’t need to wear a ring and my wife doesn’t get bothered about it”.

“Even these ladies want a man with the ring. The reason is that he is not likely to marry another girl because they are not ready to marry and he is likely to have money.

They believe that if he has provided for his family, he must have money. They like the man with the ring because they feel single guys are still struggling.”

“When my first wife wanted to leave me, I made efforts to make things work, but I couldn’t save it.

I went into another marriage that did not work out as well. I didn’t want to stay single for too long because I knew I would become promiscuous.

This is my third marriage and it is working out fine.”
