Media personality Carol Radull has for the first time spoken about her failed marriage.
In a TV interview with Betty Kyallo, Radull spoke alot about her childhood, family, career, and relationships.
Radull says she divorced her husband a few years ago.
“I was married for seven years and it wasn’t bad. It was a great six years and then one year was a bit rough. But having been in an institution of marriage is not something you easily jump into again.”
She went on saying;
“The lessons I learnt, I would never say anything negative publicly about my ex-husband. I believe he was a good man and I was in love with him when we were married but things just change and you grow apart for whichever reason maybe he is just not meant to be the one. By the time you’ve got there, how many people have you dated and it has not worked out? You can’t assume that maybe he just came along at a time when we were ready. I learnt alot in the institution of marriage and if it doesn’t work don’t force it.”
Radull then urged the society not to be judgemental on divorce cases.
“If you asked me this, four years ago when I was going through it, I would probably be in tears because people need to understand it is not an easy thing. You don’t wake up and decide this relationship is too hard I’m getting divorced. It’s not an easy decision you make. You give it a lot of thought, try seven times seven times and even after making the decision as you go through, it’s not easy even a year later. You always ask yourself if this is something I could have done?’ she said.
She added that people need to understand that it actually hurts when somebody belittles divorce, she prays that people don’t have to go through it.
“It’s hard Betty you’ve been there but there’s life after it [divorce].”
Her advise to divorcees was;
“Beat yourself up and if you’re lucky enough to find happiness in somebody else maybe that’s what was meant to be.”
Carol Radull has been in the media industry for more than 20 years focusing mainly on sports.
