A Nigerian man has taken to social media to write on the damaging words his wife who he thought loves him, said to him during a quarrel.
According to the man who appears to be a peace-loving fellow, the wife called him a disabled man and revealed to him that she married him out of pity.
Read his full story:
Let me first tell you my kind of character. For you to make me angry, you have to repeat an offense more than 30 to 40 times. After each offence, I would only give you facial expression that will let you know that you offended me. And I would ensure you get the message.
So wife kept repeating same offence. I told her I don’t like what she was doing. She said she would adjust, but kept repeating the same thing. When I got fed up, I tried to retaliate. My only retaliation is that I stopped being around in the house. I would leave the house very early in the morning and return late at night. I would go for business in another town and return 4 days later. She knows nothing stops me from coming home everyday from the other town because I have means of transportation. She flared up. Started calling relatives that I’m maltreating her. They asked her to say which ways I have been maltreating her…she said I’m avoiding our home. Relatives asked if I’m beating or starving her. She said no.
I know why it pained her very well. If she wants to go and urinate outside, I would go and drop her there. When she is through, she would call me and I would go and pick her up again.
She’s a woman that’s always settling fights for couples in the street. So, she never wanted it to be heard anywhere that we are quarelling in our home. She won’t want anybody to come to our house to settle disputes. So this prolongs our fights always.
When she couldn’t bear it again, she sent a message to me that goes like this: I INITIALLY DIDN’T WANT TO DIVORCE YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR DISABILITY AS I PITY YOU. BUT NOW, IT’S OVER. YOU HAVE TO BEAR THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS TOWARDS ME ALL THESE YEARS. WHAT DID I HAVE TO DO WITH A JUJU DIABOLIC MAN IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.
Let me disect those words in capital letters for you. I have a disability, but you can’t notice it easily until you start talking to me. She said I have to bear the consequences of my actions towards her… looking back, I have done unimaginable things to make her happy. I even saved her life when she didn’t want blood transfusion from unknown persons as a result of her Christian belief not to contract demons from the blood of unknown person. Fortunately, my blood group is that of a universal donor. That means I can donate blood for anybody. Note that she had never done any noteworthy thing for me apart from giving birth to our babies. About being a juju man, I will tell you how she arrived at this: somebody was about to give birth from her family side and the baby was in breech position. She asked for advice and I told her that if I take the woman to the village my uncle will give the woman a concoction to reverse it. Her faith is against it, but because someone from her side just gave birth through CS, which almost led to the death of mother and baby, she asked me to take the woman to the village. The breech position was reversed. I’m surprised she now labelled me a juju man.
Instead of me to take her message personal, I urged her to please herself. This infuriated her the more. Instead of leaving me, she invited someone to intervene, tracked me to the second town, and it was settled there.
My problem now is that those words are still ringing in my head… someone I thought was a lover said she married me out of piety.
