Sonia, wife of actor Ik Ogbonna has come out to say that women are not destined to suffer in abusive marriages. and that they should leave for the sake of their children, instead of being humiliated, disrespected and unappreciated.
Some Nigerians have said this probably comes on the heels of the Tonto Dikeh’s video on her failed marriage to her estranged husband Olakunle Churchill which has since gone viral on social media.
See her post below:
”It makes me sick to know that there are more women than men out there advising ladies, fellow sisters, mothers and daughters, to “try and make their marriage work” and “stay” by their husband’s side due domestic violence or any form of disrespect or mistreatment. No marriage is perfect (I know you were about to say that bish) but there are things that are most definitely NOT considered as “usual” marriage crisis. Your mom didn’t carry u for 9 months with so much love and care for you to become someone else’s punching bag. “Stay for the sake of your children” – if I hear that again!!
All of you “wise advisers”, please tell me, how can a child EVER grow into a normal, mentally and emotionally stable adult after being traumatized with such a terrible experience such as witnessing a domestic violence at his home?? For that sake I will tell you LEAVE BECAUSE OF YOUR CHILDREN if nothing else.
Stop making women feel like they were destined to suffer!!! No!! You were meant to be loved and cherished, no matter where you come from, not humiliated, disrespected and unappreciated! F* SOCIETY!!!! Your life MATTERS !!! NO ONE CAN MISTREAT YOU UNLESS YOU STAY AND ALLOW THEM!!!! #IAmMySistersKeeper
