    Why Some Women Are Dying In Silence In An Abusive Marriage?

    Women

    Without equivocation, many women have witnessed enough domestic violence in their matrimonial home to speak out or take a stand against it. When discussing abusive marriages and domestic violence, Mercy Aigbe’s case comes to mind.

    The worst part of being physically and emotionally abused by her ex-husband, according to Mercy, was not being able to talk about it. She was beaten, slapped, and shoved for many years during her marriage, and she felt alone and isolated.

    The shame associated with domestic violence can be felt throughout society in Lagos, Nigeria. Wives have found it difficult to speak out because of the stigma. Many women who have experienced domestic violence have been afraid to speak out because they believe “it’s better to be a Mrs. than a Ms.”

    Married ladies are more valued and respected than unmarried ladies. Unmarried girls, for example, are less likely to be allowed to rent houses on their own because landlords believe they are irresponsible or financially unstable. They are expected to bring a male figure to vouch for them if they can demonstrate stability and responsibility.

    Because of the discrimination faced by single women, many women who have experienced domestic violence find it much more difficult to restart their lives.

    What is your opinion on this?

      A good number of these women stay put because of their children. They strongly believe that if she leaves the man, the husband will take custody of those children. Also, they believe that nobody will take care of her children more than her.

      because the society has created a false narrative on the situation, making marital abuse a norm that women have to grow through without complaining
