Lilian Esoro opens up on failed marriage with Ubi Franklin

Nollywood actress Lilian Esoro has finally opened up on her failed marriage to talent manager, Ubi Franklin.

Lilian Esoro and Ubi Franklin are one of the couples that had a messy breakup. Ubi Franklin filed for divorce in an Abuja court. The case was finalized on the 28th of January, 2021 with Lilian taking custody of their son, Jayden.

Speaking in a recent interview with on-air personality Toke Makinwa, Lilian disclosed that she battled with depression after her marriage failed.

In her words, she said;

“Here’s what people don’t know, my marriage had been shaky from engagement. Some people always say, ‘you shouldn’t have gone ahead with the marriage at all’. But, when I think about it, I made the right decision. “Now, my son is very important to me. With everything that happened, when I want to feel sad, I show that. Social media is trying to push the narrative that marriage isn’t important but actually is.

“I was reading something and a working lady was saying it was until she got married that people started respecting her. The reason people see marriage as a problem is that we’ve lost time having conversations.

“Go out for dinner anywhere and everyone is on their phone when dinner is meant for you to see the environment and reminisce on things. People are scared from the beginning of relationships to let the other know about them.”
