am not in any way in support of raising a finger at a woman.
consider it barbaric. In fact, only a mentally disabled man will beat and
beat his wife at the slightest provocation. Having said the above,
and with a thread on Nairaland about her friend that was always
receiving the beating of her life from her husband, the story of my
step brother came to my mind. Before my brother got married, he was this
gentle, quiet, caring, loving and hard working type. He got married
to this beautiful and also easy going lady. We were all happy about the
union and expecting a kind of union that will be a model for us his
was this evening we received an unusual call from the wife saying
my brother has been giving her the beating of her life since
has nearly killed her. Immediately she dropped the call, her mum called
again that if anything should happen to her daughter that my mum
and the whole family would be responsible and in for it.
Her younger sister called again, calling my brother unprintable
names and giving different kinds of warnings, if anything should
happen to her sister.This destabilized us in the house. We were confused.
Nobody has ever reported my brother in the house before, hence it was
strange.We called my brother but he didn't even pick.To cut the long story
short, my brother eventually came home after three days to actually
explain what happened.
He said since he got married to the popularly believed
gentle, innocent girl, it has been horror for him.He said he has been trying
to protect that good quality popularly believed by the family,and that was the
reason why he has not reported her newly discovered characters to
anyone and was hoping that she would change sooner .
He said for the past two years, that his wife slapped or
beat him on the slightest provocation.He showed us old and new wounds all
over his body.He said he has been enduring it all
these while. He further said he noticed his wife was becoming
stronger and happy with her actions because every time she would introduce
new styles of beating him.
He said on this faithful day, there was an argument and
before he could say one or two words, one, two slaps don land gidigba
for his face. She didn't stop there, but went further to use her high
heel shoes on him. Not yet done she went further to bite
him severally (the hand bite almost resulted in Whitlow).We saw with
our eyes all the injuries inflicted on him.
In fact, my younger brother had to ask him if his legs and
hands were tied together while all these were going on. He said he
was just smiling and trying to hold her together .After all these, he said
he had to talked to himself:
For how long would these continue? He said his wife was
doing all these just because she knows his position towards beating a
lady, and before they got married he had one time or the other condemned
men that do beat their wives and even called them animals. The wife
having realized this, was now doing the beating and expecting the
husband to keep to his words and be strong in his conviction.
He said on this particular day, when his wife had finished
doing her worst, he went to her (not in anger but intentionally) and
told her that what he was about to do is necessary at this point. That
he wanted to prove one thing, which is, not that he doesn't have the power
to beat but he has vowed not to in his life and seeing the type of
woman she is, he has to prove this point today.
He first begged for forgiveness from God and her, and then,
immediately, he landed two hot slaps on her face which caught her
unawares and her jaw dropped. Immediately he did this, she went
straight to pick up her phone and started calling her relatives and
telling them lies that he has nearly finished her with beating.
In this case, what is your judgement? I just finished reading
this kooky experience on Nairaland, and all I see is...
"People taking lenience for weakness" Personally,
I hate been pushed to the wall.
I so hate it like I detest gbegiri soup.
