Popular Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola-Salako, has revealed why she chose to stay in an abusive marriage with her first husband, Tunde Sobowale.

Foluke, who was married to him for three years, stated in an interview with TVC that she saw clear signs that he was abusive on their wedding night.

According to her, she was subjected to domestic violence by her husband but did not end the marriage immediately because she was afraid of public criticism.

She said she was scared of what people would say if she had filed for a divorce after only a few months of marriage.

She said when she eventually left the marriage in 2008, some people still insulted her without knowing what she had gone through at the hands of her spouse.

The 45-year-old thespian, who has since remarried her second husband, Kayode Salako, said,

“My first marriage, on the night of my wedding was when I noticed abuse. But because of what people will say… And God has already orchestrated it because my wonderful kids are from the marriage.

“When I finally decided to step out [of the marriage], people did not understand why I stepped out. But I understood that I needed to go. A lot of people did not receive it well, but if I hadn’t stepped out, if I had died there, by now I would have been a forgotten case.

“So, it is better for people not to accept my reality or my truth but I accept my own truth than for me to lose my life in the process of trying to prove to the world what I’m going through.”
