DOMESTIC VIOLENCE-It’s just like seeing Eugene the wife beater in Chimamanda Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus…

Written by Chioma Kalu

My Omah lovers, Recently,domestic abuse in relationships has turn to a serious issue especially with the death of celebrity gospel artist,Late Mrs Osinachi.

Now,we can’t just fold hands and let this scourge continue.Can we?

In a scenario where one person in a marriage or intimate relationship tries to dominate and control the other, domestic abuse usually sets in.

DomesticAbuse could be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that frightens, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure, or wound someone. This abuse could be by the male or female.

While surfing the internet Recently,I was touched by the story of a lady married to a husband that always beat her up but will later come back to apologize to her with a gift, promising that he won’t beat her again. The next minute the same thing repeats but the funniest thing there is that they end spending their money replacing broken framed pictures and other households items.

At some point, she was tied by her husband who ordered the children to flog their mum.

He created the impression that it’s good for a man to beat his wife whenever he comes back from work after eating the served meal. This was revealed in a friendly conversation with the children and they see it as normal and feel happy saying it.

Recently there have been so many trends on social media about men/women who beat up their partners, embarrass them, say hurtful things to them, treat them like trash and they end up living in fear, they live a life of not expressing their feelings, being depressed and regretting the choices they made

Every woman/man deserves happiness in any relationship, or don’t they?

We are not created to our be enslaved by the fear of the unknown or the future. A divorced partner is better than a dead partner or don’t you think same.

There is should be no room for violence in marriages or relationships.

Don’t save your marriage and lose your life!
