How lack of sex ruined Shade Ladipo’s marriage


March 24, (THEWILL)- Media personality, Shade Ladipo’s marriage has collapsed less than two years after she tied the knot. The media entrepreneur tied the knot with her husband Jide in Lagos and by the end of 2020 the union folded up. The erstwhile couple were able to keep their marital status under wraps because they both relocated to Canada. But opening up on her failed marriage, the media entrepreneur and social activist revealed that lack of sexual intercourse for six months, among other issues, contributed to the failure of her marriage.

When they relocated to Canada, they resided in her brother in-law’s home and as such were not able to communicate or function as a couple. They could not have sex to reduce the tension. They were also not able to find their footing. They could not use the bathroom because there was only one and her in-laws were also at home, including their two-year child.

The plan was that after six months, they would leave her brother in-law’s house and get their own place. But by the end of the six months, her husband did not want to leave because he owed debts and was doing a contract job. He wanted to get a permanent job. He was happy with everything, but she needed to be happy first and had to leave. Their natural separation resulted in their official divorce in 2020. While she was in Nigeria, she served as the Country Director for WEConnect International in Nigeria. She founded Avienti Limited, a destination management company. She had previously worked with United Nations Volunteers-Nigeria and advertising agencies where she specialized in event management, account management and client services.


She is a Goldman Sachs fellow and was a public speaker who regularly appeared on radio, TV and live event platforms. Her talks included topics such as gender equality in the economic workforce, connecting women enterprises, and leading successful businesses in Nigeria.
