Why divorce is on the increase in Nigeria

Published

on

In recent time, divorce has been on the increase and it is a major cause for concern for those who respect the institution of marriage in Nigeria. Divorce can occur for a variety of reasons, many of which are still being discovered. Here are some of the causes of rising rate of divorce in Nigeria.

Infidelity

Infidelity is a significant contributor to divorce. It is one of the legal reasons for divorce in addition to the longer-than-a-year separation and abuse of your spouse (mental or physical). You only share everything with the person you are married to.

Lack of proper communication

Couples who cease communicating with one another may also feel alone and isolated and stop showing affection to one another altogether. The relationship can end as a result of this.

Lack of forgiveness

Unforgiveness generates grief and resentment, which develops wickedness and hatred. This is the explanation for why partners are murdered in their sleep by their spouses. Without forgiveness, nothing and no one can endure in any marriage.

Lack of love

Without love, marriage is merely a contract and will lack the qualities of love listed above. Only love can motivate two people to be married. Thinking of your spouse before yourself is a sign of true marital love. Always put your spouse first and be willing to support them no matter what.

Lack of mental preparation

Another reason for the increase of divorce in Nigeria is the lack of mental preparation among married couples. It is as such good for everyone to have a consciousness of their mental readiness for marriage. Knowing this will alert you to be on the lookout for the unexpected and nothing will catch you off guard.

Alarming rate of divorce among young couples in FCT worries Cleric

Published

Abubakar was speaking at the Annual Ramadan Lecture organised by the Afemai Islamic Movement in Abuja on Sunday with the theme: ‘ The Role of Parent in Raising God Fearing Children’.

The scholar called on parents to ensure they follow the Islamic regulations before giving their children out in marriage.

According to him, most parents don’t follow the instructions of the Holy Quran but only follow their children’s bidding when the issue of marriage arises.

” As a judge, we are having a high rate of divorce, especially the rate in the FCT is so alarming, young couples in two years, three years marriage, dragged themselves to courts.

” And we discovered that in so many of it there is no other way than to just separate them to live in peace.

” The implication is that if we don’t follow the Islamic regulation by making prayers to Allah for guidance and follow the Islamic teaching, their will be domestic problems.

” This teaching is for the husband to know his duty and his rights and for the wife to lower her duty and rights and by the time you think of those rules, it is to bring harmony in our homes,” he said.

He added that though Islamically, divorce was acceptable, but adding that it was also detestable, hence parents must find ways to help their children come out of it.

Abubakar charged parents to take a lead role in their children’s decision in taking a life partner, saying this would help guild their choices and ensure the couple live together thereafter.

According to him, if a woman is pious, it gives you 70 per cent assurance that the choice of their children in marriage will not be bias.

” As a Muslim, you must ensure that your home is an Islamic home, a home where you recite the Quran, a home where you take turn to gather the children and teach them the word of Allah.

” You teach them the words of the prophets and not just allow them to fully have western education but add Islamic education to it as this will guarantee your children will be pious Muslims,” he added.

Also speaking, the Chairman of the Board of Trustee of the Afemai Islamic Movement, Alhaji Momodu Kadiri said the aimed of the movement was to promote Islam among the Edo people in Abuja and Muslims across the country.

Kadiri urged Muslims to work together to promote the good course of Islam.

He said that the movement which started in 2001 had been able to acquire over 40 hectares of land in Abuja for the construction of mosque and schools to train youths on skills acquisitions.

He, therefore, solicit the support of well-meaning Nigerians to achieve the dream of the association.

The Afemai is an ethnic group living in the northern part of Edo, South-South geopolitical zone of Nigeria.

They occupy six local government areas of Etsako West, with headquarters in Auchi, Etsako Central, Etsako East, Owan East, Owan West and Akoko Edo. (NAN)

• Photo of a lady trying to commit suicide by drinking sniper used for illustration

A 23-year-old hair stylist, Motunrayo Balogun has been reported to have attempted suicide after she was allegedly dumped by her boyfriend who resides around Ijapo Estate in Akure South local government area of Ondo state.

The lady was said to have consumed a poisonous substance popularly known as Sniper.

It was gathered that Balogun has been having a smooth relationship with her boyfriend until the boy told her that he was no longer interested in the relationship.

This is coming barely two weeks after a DSS officer in Lagos jumped into the river after she reportedly had issues with her fiancée.

It was also gathered that Balogun’s mother who saw her lying on the floor in her room breathless, with an empty bottle of poison in her hands, rushed her to the nearest hospital where she was revived.

It was also gathered that Balogun, who is always full of life before she met her boyfriend, withdrew to her shell and turned an introvert.

Speaking with our correspondent, a close friend of Balogun who craved anonymity described her as a very beautiful lady that every man would want to have.

“I don’t understand why she did such a thing to herself.

“The man does not give her breathing space. He is always monitoring her movement and everything she does. Yet, he doesn’t have regard for her.

“Even when she comes to work, three hours later, you will see him drive down to check up on her every now and then.

“I’m sure it might be because most guys stay away from their girlfriends when the festive period is approaching, so as not to spend money on them, only for them to reconcile after New Year celebration. Maybe that was the case. I can’t really tell. Because I don’t see any reason for the break up now.

“But the reason she took that step is what I don’t understand. For me, no man is worth such decision. It was a very bad idea,” she lamented.
