    Hope the woman doesn’t turn around and claim that this facebook user is lying. Some women would do that just to save face and remain married, afterall the husband na oil worker.

    Am a young Married Man, and i always think what leads to DV every time? could it be lack understanding right from dating days or people marry with wrong minds set…. bcos i dont see why a guy will beat someone he love and respect.

    10years of beating. Can she at least physically seperate her self from that environment first before anybody starts to judge the matter.

    Women don’t die in marriage. Don’t marry violent men. And for those of you who provoke your violent husbands, please close your mouths or leave.

    can’t believe those blaming the woman. As if we don’t live in a society full of elders, pastors and what have you who advise women to stay & pray no matter what ‘for the sake of the children’. As if as a people we don’t mock women who ‘fail at marriage’ & single women. And i don’t agree with the comment on provoking husbands either. As human being, unless you’re being attacked by someone, you have no right to lay hands on them not even if they annoy you with words. You can always walk away.

    You know I still try to imagine how some men do it. You hit a woman till she starts bleeding this much like how do you do it? What type of anger is that? It is this type of man whose house should be taken and given to the woman and he should be kicked out…maybe even jailed sef.

    Something is wrong somewhere. When we see white people who don’t beat their kids and we all think they are ‘spoiling the children’ but look at it, cases of DV among white people is so low because they are trained to think law is what will justify not force! I think it comes from young age. Even women are ready to lock up anybody in cell or use military to beat up someone they can’t handle themselves physically. The men just do it themselves instead and it’s so so wrong! It doesn’t have to be a violent home to raise a violent man/woman.

    Majority of women here if their maids should steal their expensive jewelry and deny. I bet you’d call police or SARS to beat out a confession out of her and same you will come here to decry DV.

      Good point. Beating kids is also domestic violence. You’re teaching that child that it is okay to act or react violently.

    This issue of domestic violence in Nigeria I really don’t know when it will end.
    Recently a man who says he’s a councillor in church, in the office where I serve , said women who leave their marital home sue to domestic violence are disobeying God, that the only time God permits divorce is only when a woman cheats, her husband is permitted to put her away.
    I went further to ask him “what if the woman dies in the process” he said “then let her die, It is for better or worse, marriage is a cow which she signed and besides if the man kills his wife he will not go free, God will punish him”
    My mouth was hanging loose at the end of our chat.
