6 Celebrities Who Walked out of Their Marriage who couldn’t do it anymore and decided to walk out of their marriages. For some reasons were given, for others reasons were not.
And I don’t mean just the process of trying to get separated, I mean the societal, religious, cultural pressure. It’s tough and society is always harder and more critical of the woman even if the man was at fault.
So when people say 6 Celebrities Who Walked things like “She didn’t know it will be hard when she married?” or “People these days can’t just endure”, it’s very interesting to me because I believe that in a marriage, before a woman gets to the point of saying “Okay, I want to go”…it means she’s really gone through it. read 6 Celebrities Who Walked out of Their Marriage
1, Monalisa Chinda
Many people don’t know this but earlier on in her life, veteran Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda, entered into one hell of marriage with her now ex-husband, Tony Obieri.
The marriage according to Monalisa was very violent. She had no intention of leaving him. In fact, she didn’t believe in divorce or separation. She wanted to fight. But according to her, when the slapping and the beating became too much, so much so that one day he beat her to the point when the neighbors had to shout “Ah ah, is it every day?”, that was when she knew it was time to go. Couple that with the fact that this was all happening in front of their daughter, Tamar. Monalisa said she couldn’t continue that way. So the next morning, she took her and Tamar’s things and left to go stay with a friend.
When she realized that she’d forgotten one of Tamar’s essential clothing at Tony’s house, she went back hoping he wouldn’t be there. Unfortunately for her, he was. According to her, he beat her so bad, she almost died. That was the final straw and that was the minute she decided she was going to officially divorce him.
Thankfully, Monalisa and her daughter are now doing well. The actress is now married to her husband, Victor Coker.

I’ll share with you some excerpts from the book. In Chapter 33, Letting Go,
I took the beatings for five years after my wedding day. Leaving an abuser means admitting that you’ve been co-dependent. You’re not running away, but let’s go of a person who doesn’t love you after all. You’re letting go of the fantasy, to step back into your real-life where happiness is possible.
One time while I was still married, probably in the first year, I took my little dog and left to spend the night in a hotel. But I went back the next day. I was scared to turn away from the perfect image I’d been trying to create. Leaving meant admitting: This man is never going to change. He doesn’t even like me.
She officially left him in 2013. They were married for 7 years.
