My dear, it is best for the young lady to first consult with her spiritual leader. Let her hear what he has to say on the matter.

Pregnancy outside wedlock is very dangerous. Marriage is only good when u marry at ur own free will without pressure from any party... This one no be apc or pdp thing oo if u know u know. Thats why we see divorce flying everywhere like glo simcard. It doesn't dictate love oo.. Make she carry her cross oo... Or better still go find something to do... U can't be totally dependent on a man... Atimes if one keeps giving every time, it will get to a point where he will be tired of giving when there isn't any improvement from the other side...make I stop here

Blame the Nigerian factor.... Bad economy... Love is worst and at the lowest low at this time .

I suggest the lady try and get herself a job or continue her tailoring so as to get her own money and reduce fustration

She’s unhappy yet she’s pregnant with her second child with him. She should manage her husband like that please. Let’s even assume she wanted to plan her way out of the marriage, is it by giving birth to another child where she’ll feel even more trapped? The man is barely giving her money now and she thinks it will get better with a second child? That man is stuck in his ways and she doesn’t have the support of his family. It’s only prayer that can solve this, I’m so sorry. Sometimes we need to be smart as women, if you know you’re not happy with your husband with one child, save your womb the stress and do not have any more children until you are sure you want to remain in the marriage. It’s easier to leave a man with one child than 3. Especially in Nigeria where there’s absolutely no support for single mothers, and your friend relying on her husband for monthly upkeep. She should be realistic and ask herself if she can survive on her own with two kids.
If the answer is no, then she should please focus on gaining financial independence more than anything, and ignore her husband for now. Financial freedom will then give her the liberty to do whatever she wants in the future. When one is idle, the mind focuses on things that will only deteriorate mental stability.

Then your friend should carry her cross and stop disturbing us on Nairaland. Since d**k is all that matters in her marriage, she should go and pay a mainstream counselor to convince her husband to treat her right. Some of them charge around 250k in Lagos, and that's for a week or two week session.


Good luck.

Yup..



Love, morality, and spirituality/religion have the strongest impact on family relationships/bonds. When the three die, the marriage dies COMPLETELY.

true,the fact that he doesn't know how to treat a woman right, if he was going to church with her at least some of his character will change,though she feels he has thoughts implanted in him that makes his act those ways towards her..though she loves him but his attitude towards her is reducing the love,its well

He's probably one of those screaming "religion issa scam", "religion is bondage" on Nairaland. Well, freedom is good but not without a cost. Freedom to maltreat people, freedom to change brothels like diapers..

Re: Help,an Unhappy Married Woman by Prec1ous(m): 8:08pm On Mar 20, 2021
First, he is not going to church is not the problem. I have found the irreligious people to be more tolerant, accommodating and direct without pretence.

Second, that directness is what he I s using now to send a plethora of message.

Here is the meat...

The man still loves you but like you know, love is never enough.

He feels he got hitched due to the pregnancy, the thought that he did not decide his marriage time himself is haunting him, but he is not fair to you because you both "tangled".

You are not working thus, the bulk of things are on him. The moment a man's head unlock and he sees you as a liability, he will start to detest you. You are like a drain to his watery money.

You guys need to talk, you need to tell him not just how you feel but how does he feel too. Ask him what he needs off you and you can achieve that.

Your man sees you but he feels you are not who he imagined again. In his head, you have lost yourself!

One more secret, a man honestly needs love but will never ask. Show him that. Make him feel like like a king and see the wonders that will unfold!

They're always direct without pretence until problems start. Only a problem makes the difference.

Look, tell him/her to seek for a God-fearing pastor. Why I say so is because this is a delicate matter that requires wisdom from God. For there are alot of foolish suggestions I am seeing here that may lead your friend into greater problems than she is currently facing.

i would always prefer a direct person any day. They give enough feedback to know when problem is starting and what can be the likeliest solution just from their complaints alone.

With what you wrote here, including there's tendency that he's being influenced on how he treats her, believe me it can only get worse.

Tell her to gradually withdraw her emotional investment on him then prepare her mind towards leaving the marriage. Since she's not financially independent, she should build herself up to be. Thank God she's already learning a trade.

But to be expecting baby number 2 in this type of toxic relationship, she messed up big time.
