I celebrated the collapse of my first marriage – Kumawood actress
Kumawood actress, Portia Asare, says she heaved a sigh of relief after her divorce was granted.
Portia married Rev John Wilberforce Aidoo in a colourful ceremony in 2015, but the marriage lasted for just 5years.
“I was happy with myself and God after the collapse of my first marriage,” she said.
She explained that she was unhappy in marriage, and divorce was the only option.
“My former husband was neither violent nor a womanizer, but we just didn’t click. I did what a wife would do to make her husband happy. My direction was different from his, so we could not make things work.
“I was married to him for five years but separated for two years, and we finally called it off,” she said in an early interview with Delay.
Culturally, divorce is usually discouraged especially as Portia’s ex-husband was a pastor.
Many often groan and wail for losing their marriage, but Portia said she celebrated her divorce.
“I have a strong conviction about certain decisions I make in life, and this (divorce) was one of it. I celebrated it in my quiet time,” she said. “My heart was at peace; my soul was rested”.
Three years after the divorce, Portia Asare remarried in a private ceremony on July 2, 2021, in Accra.
