Daily we hear reports of fatalities between spouses, and more recently women have been murdering their husband’s in Lagos and Abuja and other parts.

It is imperative to know that life is VERY important and marriage is contracted here on earth.  It should not be a DO or DIE situation.

Make sure you KNOW who you want to marry and not flow by fear of your ‘biological clock’ or ‘depth of his pocket’ or ‘her beauty, or because ‘your peers are getting married.’ etc.,  There are too many failed marriages amongst young women and men AFTER the pomp and pageantry.

Have proper counseling, not only faith based counseling but go and talk to relationship and marriage coaches or counsellors.  Do personality profiling.  KNOW WHO YOU ARE MARRYING – when you know BEFORE hand you can decide to work on the weak areas because AFTER marriage it may not be possible.

In a partnership situation – same applies.  Why would you, a young lovely lady, be hooked with a man who doesn’t know how to control his temper?  And releases his frustration on you.  You need to know your worth and respect yourself and then you get respected.  Love doesn’t hurt – lust does.

If you need to talk to someone, you can call: 08033951460 – for a quick counseling consultation or intervention because we work with other NGO’s and Lagos State Domestic Violence Unit.

Meanwhile, these are the Lagos State numbers to call – even if you are not involved.  Be your ‘neighbours keeper.’  Don’t keep silent against any form of abuse around you, especially against children.
