A 33-year-old Nigerian man cry out over domestic violence from his 24-year-old wife.
He narrates how he became house boy to his wife who is from a wealthy home.
He wrote, “I am a 33 year old man and my wife is 24 years old we are 5 years of marriage.
My father-in-law is a very wealthy businessman. He paid us for a well-constructed plot and we lived peacefully until our first daughter was born.
When I come home from work, my wife forces me to take care of the child. Each time it’s me who cleans the child, changes his diapers, gives him the bottle, I also have to prepare food, tidy up the house, I can’t even watch the game on TV or go out to see my friends. She makes me watch novelas with her all night yet she won’t go to work like me.
She is the one who decides everything in the house, even when we have to eat, when we have to make love. I accept all this without resentment, because I love her with all my heart and I don’t want to lose her but what I can’t bear 😭, since her father gave her a car, my life has become a hell, she makes me wash her car, she blames me, she hits me regularly, she once sent me to the hospital, I have the wounds all over my back.
My wife terrifies me, when I see her, I panic. What can I do to change my situation? Because I love her and I don’t want to lose her.”
