“Have we ever in life went to beg for food ever since we got married?
“Has you mother ever brought food for us to eat one day because of hunger?
“Have I not told you at the beginning that I hate someone insulting me?
“In the first place, did you really come out with your own full mind?
“Did you come to marry me because of money or for who I am?
“Who gave you the order to pack your property away from our home?
“Who is your adviser in this marriage that is polluting your mind against me?
“You always pray that God should help you to eat the fruit of your labour?
“So no man has the power to take one’s life but today we are going together.
So how do you feel now?”
