A feminist has revealed why Nigerian women should divorc£ men more.
According to her, in Nigeria, the divorce rate is not even high enough. Women are experiencing a lot, many men in Nigeria are disturbed. The case involving my best friend still astounds me. In medical school, she was the life of the party and an incredible businesswoman. He forbade her from seeing her friends after she got married. Even travelling to meet her parents in the same Lagos will result in her being det@ined by him. He told her not to work nights, and she respected that for the marriage to work. It took her a while to get a job because most hospitals preferred doctors who could work evenings. Medical doctors make more money when they work nights. It had an impact on her career.
She eventually passed her tests and was accepted into a postgraduate medical school. She consciously chose a profession that would allow her to work a few days and then return home to care for her family. It was insufficient for this us£l£ss man, l%cking her out because she attended a discussion class with her peers prior her part 1 exams. He advised her against enrolling in the discussion class, something essential for her to pass her tests. When she returned, he had l%cked her outside. That’s how the union came to an end.
Furthermore, contrary to what you might like to believe, women in Nigeria do not divorce men frequently enough. Many women continue to put up with a lot of cr@p. Unbelievably, many women suffer as a result of the st¥gma associated with failed marriages. Please applaud any div%rced women you encounter in Nigeria. She must have thought long and hard before deciding to end that marriage. Many people still str¥ggle. I will always be in awe of Nigerian women who escape unhappy marriages.
The second lady she knew, a lab scientist, keeps contracting STDs despite not having any extram@rital aff@irs. How are you bringing STDs into your home while you are married to a microbiologist? Before she contracted something, her parents had to remove her from that union. Men in Nigeria are fer%cious; my friend’s father actually advised her to respect her husband if he asked her to stop going to her parents’ place. He is your spouse.
Additionally, her father questioned why she was attending weddings and meeting her friends. if that’s what he wants, stay at home. We don’t talk enough about the fide£ity that many Nigerian fathers owe to the men their daughters are married to, yet it still wasn’t enough. They give their husbands the authority they held as dads. It seems as though women have no agency and are merely objects. We need to eradicate shame in Nigeria, and while I’m happy that the st¥gma associated with divorce is being addressed, the truth is that only a very small portion of the issue has been addressed. Many more women still put up with a lot in order to merely stay married.
