I’M RETARDED. PLEASE MAKE ME UNDERSTAND…

Please, please and please make me understand why a woman will remain in a house where she’s been battered physically, emotionally and mentally?!

Make me understand why you will tolerate an abusive relationship or marriage for so long!  *abi dem do you

Make me understand why you will choose not to expose a monster you call husband?

Make me understand why it doesn’t bother you that your kids watch as you are battered!

Make me understand why you won’t leave to fight a good fight or leave so that you can live to see your kids grow the way you wish for them to grow!

Make me understand why you choose not to fulfil your destiny as a mother, not just to your kids but to a nation that yearns for your motherly touch!

Make me understand why you think you will have no life without him… Is he your God?

Make me understand why you want to add to the general statistics of women who died from Domestic Violence

Make me understand why you choose to end your life this way

Even if you don’t want to live for your kids, at least for the sake of all those human hair you have acquired over time… Peruvian, Brazilian, Mongolian… Who will wear them?! That is, if you don’t value human life!

Ronke Shonde chose to stay with a monster, and what was the result? Death. Her husband murdered her in cold blood, he beat her to death, right in front of her kids (6 and 4 years). In 6 years, she could have left, but she chose to remain in that house.

Anyway, no point dwelling on what could have been. The point is how do we keep other women in domestic violence situations alive?

Please, women, let’s all stand against domestic violence . Abi, we should start helping them report without their permission ? #confused

THE TRAGEDY OF BEING MARRIED TO EMEKA IKE

image

I’m not trying to be judgmental here but this ‘Emeka Ike’  case is a typical example of what happens to any woman who is trying to have custody over her children, after a escaping a marriage filled with Domestic Violence.

See, I know for sure 2 wrongs don’t make a right and at the same time, no woman will just wake up one day and start accusing her husband of being physically violent or otherwise. In fact, most often t than not, Nigerian women like to protect their husbands, and even cover up their mess.

But it takes only a sensible woman to save herself from a domestic violence situation, no matter the cost. It is only a woman who is alive that can try to then get her children…but from a very safe distance.

Emeka Ike’s marital issues is something I’ve been trying so hard not to talk about. What saddens me is the way society frowns at a married woman who flees from her home, no matter the reason. See how long it’s taking the court in granting the woman’s request! If a wife says she’s not interested, then she’s not interested.

And I mean the role Emeka’s mom is playing in all these ongoing brouhaha, shouldn’t shock people. Every woman should not foolishly think that it is every mother inlaw that has their backs when the chips are down! Mba nunnu! Whether she likes it or not, you are still the outsider, therefore don’t expect that she will quarrel with her son over you! It’s a matter of “soldier come, soldier go”!

Emma, Emeka’s wife, said that the last she tried to speak with her kids, it was her mother inlaw who picked the call, and asked her to read Exodus 21!

Emma has moved out of the house for over 2 years now, in which no attempt has been made by her husband to reconcile. So naturally, the poor chic had to file for a divorce. Initially, Emeka’s counsel pleaded that the court give them 6months to allow for the possibility of a settlement. But Emma has cried that it’s too long, so the court shortened it to 2weeks. *Talk about a woman who knows what she wants*

I can imagine what she endured for 12 years! I’ve never been a fan of Emeka Ike sef! There was always something creepy about him, that tended towards violence, and this his wahala has just confirmed it. There a lot of actors that share the same spot like Emeka, that I seriously suspect may be violent to their wives – Emeka Enyiocha, Jim Iyke, ehm…these are the only 2 I can remember for now.

Anyway, I would love to use this medium to personally plead with women in Domestic Violence situations to please take a cue from Emma’s situation. It’s never too late to back out! Ignore what people may say to you, nothing else matters apart from your life! Save yourself first, then worry about other things later.

One more thing, if you’ve left the house completely, never agree for a meeting with your husband in the same house that you left…it may very well be the last time you will come out alive. So don’t make that mistake. If he wants to see you, then ensure the meeting is in a public place! #JustTakingPrecautions

Have an awesome day ahead.

CRAZY GROOM BEATS UP BRIDE ON WEDDING NIGHT

Few minutes after their wedding

Lol! This is sheer madness…

29 year old Gavin Golightly, beat up his 22 year old bride on their wedding night, just because he couldn’t undo her dress, as in open the dress. The poor girl would have died in his hands if she hadn’t escaped to call a night porter.

Bride has filed for a divorce

The crazy groom was only charged with hours of community service (no wonder men keep getting away with domestic violence, when they will only be given a pat on their hands).

image

Crazy groom!

And to think they have a child together. Anyway, the wise chic has filed for divorce. She claims his ‘madness’ did not start that day. I love her, a woman after my heart that appreciates life, instead of dying in a man’s hand.

Those of you in abusive relationships, are you still thinking about it?!…*lips sealed*

COULD SHANIA HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

According to PEOPLE,Shania Twain has released a video public service announcement speaking out against family violence.

“Sometimes home is where the hurt is,” says the singer in the video for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s YouTube channel. “It’s really confusing to be hurt by someone you love. Whether it’s physical, sexual or emotional – abuse is abuse. And it can happen in any family.”

Shania did the video as repayment for getting to ride into the Calgary Stampede on horseback wearing a full RCMP dress uniform to the delight of fans last July.

In the clip, the Canadian-born singer speaks as images of domestic abuse appear over her shoulder, “Violence, especially in your own home, is never acceptable,” Twain says, and urges viewers never to keep family violence a secret.

*I hope anyone reading this article and who is in an abusive situation has heard. In Nigeria, we are fond of keeping silent on issues that matter the most!*

Monalisa Chinda, still remains one of the very few actresses I really admire.

It’s sad to hear that she was a victim of this dreaded act but the good thing is that she is alive to tell her story.

This was what she put on her twitter page yesterday,

” I was once a victim of Domestic Violence but survived and even stronger, so, YES YOU CAN! I say NO to Domestic Violence and you should as well”

Mona dear, I also lend my voice in this fight!
