According to her, she was too young when she got married. She stated that at the time she was not ready to settle down, but the thought of what to do next with her life after school had brought the prospect of marriage.
She expressed that if she had been more mature like she is now, she believes she would still be married.

Chigul further stated that she learned that allowing a man to be a man and take charge is what should happen in a marriage.
She said: "I think in retrospect, looking back at and thinking about it now, I think I wasn’t prepared as I thought I was, you know you sort of plan your life, you know you say when I finish school, what next? Marriage and then you go along that path and then you get into it and you are like, nobody told me about this path, nobody told me about how difficult it could be.
Thinking about it now, I’m more matured now and I think if I knew then what I know now, we would probably still be okay. There are so many things that I would have changed. I learned about men and that word called ego and allowing a man to be a man and sort of allowing someone to take charge because that, in my opinion, is literally what they should do.”
