Betty Irabor educated women about the need to leave an abusive relationship before it’s too late.
Popular Nigerian columnist Betty Irabor educated women about the need to leave an abusive relationship before it’s too late.
The founder of Genevieve Magazine, who has been married to her husband for 37 years, stated in an open letter that women in abusive relationships are far better alone and alive to look after their children than they are to a stepmother or family whose love Interest must not include children.
Betty urged the victims of abusive relationships not to allow others to persuade them to stay, with glaring dangers ahead of them.
Your letter is:
Dear women in abusive relationships….
Marriage is not a do or die matter, especially if you are the one likely to die of abuse or end up living dead in a mental health home.
BETTER FOR WORSE does not mean that you should romanticize the suffering head, especially when used as a pack animal or punching bag that induces mental and psychological trauma.
“Until death do us part” does not mean that you will stay until you die and be carried out in a coffin because you are staying for your children and because “GOD hates divorce”. Is it God’s will that you be brutalized and sent to an untimely death without serving its purpose in your life?
“With illness and health” … does not mean that you should stay married to a sick person (psycho). Protect your own health.
Do not let others persuade you to stay when you alone know the impending danger. Go while your legs can carry you …
You are far better alone and alive to look after your children than leaving them to a stepmother or family whose love interests may not include your children …
Please, please, we understand that you are afraid to start over. But stop sabotaging any efforts by domestic violence activists to rehabilitate you after asking for help.
Stop running back to the vomit.
No! Half a loaf (managing marriage) is no better than none. Don’t let the company and peer pressure surprise you.
Your life is gold You are a precious diamond. When you can’t see nobody else …
Me and my Boo are living our best lives almost 37 years later? His grace was upon us … but we also play our own roles. “
