After The Collapse of Korra Obidi and Husband Justin Dean’s Marriage, Perhaps Celebrities Should Consider Open Marriages

Open marriages permit couples to have other dyadic relationship outside their primary relationship, it’s a concept that’s increasingly gaining popularity and maybe more celebrities should start considering it

Nigerian singer and dancer, Korra Obidi and husband Justin Dean confirmed their imminent separation few days after welcoming their second child. Obidi and Dean tied the knot in 2017, and according to husband Dean, Korra’s attitude has been questionable since 2018 and is the ultimate reason he is filing for divorce. However, he remains committed to the welfare of his two girls, as confirmed in an Instagram post.

It’s only March and we’ve already lost count of how many popular relationships and marriages have been marred by this kind of controversy.

Korra Obidi and Family

Generally, people love a love story. That admiration is even bigger when it’s two influential people or two people going against the odds to be together. It’s a concept that’s typically adored and makes up about 80 percent of the books, films, and TV shows we consume. However, taking reality and trends into perspective, humans are increasingly becoming polygamous.

Relationships based on monogamous romance, starting, and nurturing a family is still widely regarded as life’s sin qua non. Society perpetuates that notion. But with the ever-dynamic pressures of life, people are increasingly finding it difficult to remain in such relationships, more so famous people.

High-profile marriages are more likely to be subjected to microscopic examination from the media and public. It’s even exacerbated when the couple turn their daily lives into content like Korra and Dean did.

Nonetheless, they’re not the first people and will not be the last to toe that route.

Marriage as an institution is a core pillar of every society and comes with many advantages including children, stability, fulfilment, pleasure, approval and respect from society and state. No doubt people know and desire all of that.

Including for fear of being judged, it’s the reason many people go into marriage despite their high propensity to engage in extradyadic relationships. Being a star or a famous person makes that propensity even higher and a lot more difficult to shut out noise.

It is well documented in several anthropological reports that extra-dyadic affairs amongst many others, is the leading cause of distrust, breakups, and divorce in marriages. It is also the most reported cause of high-profile marriage splits.

When billionaire founder of Microsoft Bill Gates announced his separation from wife Melinda, the entire world was shocked, even more so when several sources reported Bill had a thing or two to do with other women that Melinda certainly didn’t approve of.

It’s probably the most shocking high-profile marriage splits ever.

Kanye and Kim 2

We later found out that Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian and that was partly why Kim regarded their union as irreconcilable.

Beyoncé and Jay Z wouldn’t be together today if she hadn’t chosen to forgive him. And this list can go on and on.

Putting all of these into perspective, perhaps people should start considering unconventional mutual partnerships and open marriages.

Open marriage is a form of non-monogamy in which the partners of a dyadic marriage agree that each may engage in extramarital sexual relationships, without this being regarded by them as infidelity, and consider or establish an open relationship despite the implied monogamy of marriage.

This allows them to expand the scope of their relationship, to satisfy their internalized desires, although sincerity has to be at the core of it for success.

That way, we can all be spared of the drama.
