Patrick Doyle, a veteran actor, has counseled ladies who feel Joke’s commitment to her dying husband, Olu Jacobs, stemmed from his faithfulness to her in the early years of their marriage.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Patrick Doyle wrote that Joke Silva would have shown Jacobs the same amount of love and devotion even if Olu was a wife abuser.
“ALL THOSE WOMEN HINGING JOKE SILVA’S DEVOTION TO HER AILING ELDERLY HUSBAND ON HIS DEVOTION AND CARE TOWARDS HER IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THE MARRIAGE HAVE SIMPLY GOT IT WRONG,” PATRICK DOYLE WROTE. ACCORDING TO THEM, “NOT SO FAITHFUL AND DEVOTED HUSBANDS” SHOULD NOT EXPECT THE SAME KIND OF TREATMENT IN THEIR FINAL YEARS. THEY EVEN GO SO FAR AS TO TELL SUCH MEN THAT THEIR WIVES WILL TORMENT THEM IN OLD AGE. IN THEIR MINDS, THEY HAVE DECIDED THAT JOKE SILVA SHARE THEIR WRONG PHILOSOPHY.
“THE JOKE THAT I KNOW WOULD HAVE TREATED UNCLE OLU WITH THE SAME MEASURE OF LOVE AND DEVOTION EVEN IF HE WAS A PHILANDERER AND WIFE BEATER, WHICH HE WAS NOT, THANKFULLY.” SHE WOULD NEVER USE HIS VULNERABILITY TO TORTURE HIM BECAUSE IT IS SIMPLY NOT IN HER DNA TO DO SO.
