I will not cheat on my husband but I also will not agree to no oath taking
What nonsense?
What if the man dies tomorrow and I have to remarry?
Or what if he starts misbehaving after 6 months and the marriage packs up? Then I ll forever be tied to the effect of swearing before one juju or something?

I don't think she did the right thing by refusing.
She should sleep with only her husband.
She can sleep with others when he becomes an ex husband or dead.
Whether her husband was asked the same question or not is immaterial.
We ought to be accountable, for ourselves. If other people are not, that's them.

The old man then told d idiot dat he will take d same oath so dat it will apply to the two ofthem but d mofo refused. So d idiot was asked to run along. You want to tie a girl and be sharing ur community prick abi?

Enter your comment... Her refusal to take the oat, means she was never going to be faithfull in the marriage. I pity her supposed husband to be. The lady get spare Dick even before the marriage date was fixed.

both should have agreed or be compelled to take the oath. they want to tie her down with that

They are aware their son is irresponsible and want to psych her into dying there when the demon reveals himself.
Anyone that think that babe is promiscuous hence her refusal is sick upstairs. Why try to chain nd mistreat someone's daughter coz she accepted to marry their son...rubbish.
Stupid family with an archaic and deeply selfish tradition.

Being accountable is different from oath taking. Marriage vows no do them again now na oath swearing. Some women will swear their destinies away all in a bid to bear mrs.

Daenerys_targaryen said...

Sense is far from you. The oath taking has nothing to do with cheating. They use it to tie women down so the man can be gallivanting around. Backward people.

Arianna loves Wide Eyed! said...

Choose your battles wisely , and early too.
And I think a man who loves a woman should familiarise her with the traditions and ways of his people so you don't just waste her time for nothing like this one here.
And ladies, learn to ask questions too.

My Opinion: It's not a big deal for a woman who truly loves a man to take such oaths but when it's one sided, it simply spells doom.
Some of this traditions go beyond the marriage. Even if she should divorce the man tomorrow, once she sleeps with another man she's doomed for life.

I know of a place where it is the man that falls sick if the wife cheats. And if she doesn't confess and do some sacrifice with a goat, the man might just die.
I know some of y'all will nod at this one, lol.

Daenerys_targaryen said...

She's not ready to be faithful or she's doesn't want to be tied down spiritually. Is the man ready to be faithful too. Some of you men will destroy someone else's daughter all in the name of stupid tradition. Continue thinking through ur anus till kingdom come. Ode

Fab Mum said...

I believe whatever oath, bounds or vows you take with your partner ends when death happens to the other.

Then if you are divorced I don't think you have any bounds together whosoever. According to the twitter handle, she was asked to swear she won't cheat on her husband so that means in marriage. He can't be hour husband if you are divorced or when he is dead.

But is till won't swear. Unless he is also sweating that he will be faithful to me in marriage. Not because I'll cheat but then why should I swear when he is not swearing

Anonymous said...

My view on how to treat women.
1.Don't compare your wife to other women. You don't know what their husbands are going through.
2. NEVER expose your wife's weakness to your family or friends or run to them whenever you have issues. Problems are best solved between you and your woman.
3. Don't think you are man so you can use intimidation, shout or violence to communicate your moods. Agreesive men don't make a happy home.

4. Speak gently and calmly to your wife. Never raise your voice at her, it demeans her and shows you think she is stupid.
5. Do your responsibilities as man...don't leave every to your woman.

6. Never blame your wife if she doesn't take care of the home everyday. She is swamped with house work and helping you raise the kids.

7. Don't be wasteful spending money on drinks, friends and extended family.The wife and children are your first responsibility.

8. Sex is also important to women. Her pleasure should be considered before your own.
9. Never compare your wife to your ex-girlfriends. If you loved them so much why didn't you marry them instead of your wife.

10. Never shout down your wife or challenge her in front of the children. The children are watching. They won't listen and obey her too.

11. Tell your wife she's beautiful even if you know she's looking normal. Women love compliment.
12. Don't forget that women also want attention and someone to share their thougts with. Never be too busy for your wife.
13. A prayerful man is a better equipped husband. Pray always for your wife and family. Don't leave the prayers to your wife.
14.Treat your wife like a queen. Buy her gifts, take her shopping and once in a while, cook for her.
15.Please don't forget your these anniversary dates. Wedding ,engagement,the first time you kissed. I beg you. These dates mean a lot to women. (Don't ask me why). I also don't know.
16. Your mother should not have the final say in your marriage. You married your wife, not you and your mother. Let her talk in her own husband's house.
17.There are 5 days each month that you have to say "I'm sorry", "yes baby" and "I love you" more than 7 times a day. That's when she's menstrating. Copied

Jimmy said...

Madam anonymous I am not in ssupport of a man cheating on woman or getting married to two wives or more but it is a sign of total godlessesness when both spouse cheat on each othe. On what gground are you going to stand to ask God for a change. Don't you know every action is a seed and this seed will become a tree and bear fruit that you will reap whether now or in the nearest future?

TRIUMPHANT ZION said...

It's so true. I heard about a man who made his wife go through it and then after wedding,he will only sleep her for procreation and no other time,he continuously starved this woman while he goes out to enjoy with his concubine.
The lady tried to divorce him but he refused to collect the dowry.
So this kind of oath exist but only the ones that are not wise enough take it.
The husband and wife should take the oath if they must or nothing.

Anonymous said...

Nigerians and hypocrisy, people don't have the fear of God but fear tradition like mad, I mean it's the same oath we take at the altar with the bible, but most pple already feel God is merciful so they can always cheat but will not dare it with small gods.

Anonymous said...

But both parties will still take same vows at the church. Oh I forgot Christians take God for granted, those vows at the altar mean absolutely nothing to them

OmaBuoro said...

Why is it that women are always made to go through somethings that are debased ?.why did Jesus not condemned the adulterous women in the bible ? The punishment for the sin of adultery is not a one sided issue because God will judge both genders.so if a woman must take an oath the man should also do the same.moreover some of this there so called oath have a lot of implications beyond the ordinary. Also a real child of God should avoid oath taking.

Janeaustaconnection said...

The lady did the right thing,what if the man starts abusing her,she wont leave because of the oath.If it happens the man is a one minute man she stay glued to the man because of oath.She did the right thing biko

Passenger said...

For me it's not about if the lady or the man was asked to take an oath, but about how people have fear for our traditional gods but disregard and ridicule ALMIGHTY GOD. Its easier to take for granted Oath taking before God cos He's merciful. Its oath and allegiance couple pledges in church before God using Bible to exchange vows. Same applies to court how some will still lie after taking oath with Holy Book, but they dare not lie if cutlass or iron is used cos they'd meet their doom straight ni.

Justify your statement that the man doesn't need to take an oath as well as the woman.
If she must take the oath, what is the reason?
By the way, u say she has to take it to stay faithful to the man.
Then u think the man doesn't have to do same so that he stays unfaithful to the one who is faithful to him. This is simply WITCHCRAFT!!!
Control freaks! Wanting to have your life to yourself while you think others shouldn't have their basic freedom so that u can manipulate them too.
If this story is true, the lady did just perfect. There's no equity in that pronouncement. It is like lending someone your life savings knowing that the fellow is a pauper would has maintained track record of swandering resources at his disposal. Only a fool will yet take part in such deal either by proposing or accepting such.

Ronalda. said...

Stellz, by now you ought to realise "gender equality" in cases of marriage or infidelity can never be attainable, especially in countries like Nigeria. It will be a monumental waste of time and energy to keep the debate on. For one, traditional marriage, which is one of the 2 valid marriages‎ in Nigeria, clothes the man with the right to marry more than one wife. Surprisingly, a lot of people, women included, favour traditional marriage to marriage under the Act (Registry or Church wedding). A lot of people have more regard for the payment of the dowry  or bride price than the marriage certificate issued at the Registry or in a licensed church.

Clearly, the instant cases is about a traditional marriage where the man can sleep with and marry other women but the wife is not permitted to sleep with or marry another man. Polygamy is accepted by tradition but polyandry is considered a taboo. So how can you wonder whether the man was asked to make the same oath? Of course he wasn't. That would be untraditional. It's only marriage under the Act that somewhat insulates the wife. She can file for divorce on grounds of adultery if her husband cheats (we all know it's still the woman who will be under attack if she chooses to exercise this right). Secondly, once a man marries under the Act, he can no longer marry a 2nd wife, even under tradition, without dissolving the 1st marriage. If he goes ahead to pay the bride price of another woman while his 1st marriage subsists, that amounts to bigamy, a criminal offence (of course, a lot of women are still discouraged from filing criminal charges against their husbands, plus a lot of courts will frustrate the complainant till she has no choice than to withdraw the charge and settled her marital issues at home). You see? Even when the law protects a woman's interests, it's still almost impractical.

I'm not sure why the lady in question refused to swear but I commend her guts. I'm a stickler for honesty, no matter the backlash. It's also possible that her faith forbids her swearing. We should also consider the fact that she was blindsided. Perhaps she had no idea that she will be asked to take such an oath. A lot of oaths taken in traditional marriages are fetish because the "enforcer" of the oaths are the village deity.

Anonymous said...

There s not trust in d relationship from d beginning.

Ronalda. said...

Relax guys, traditional marriage is also known as polygamous marriage. It allows the man marry other women but it forbids the wife "having" other men.

If you want "equal rights", which is more enforceable in theory than in practice, insist on marriage under the Act, which is conducted at the Registry or at a church licensed to wed couples and issue Marriage certificates.

Most traditions are unfair to women and has been in existence for centuries, but it is what it is. You either subject yourself to it or refuse to be bound by it.‎

Ronalda. said...

You guys fail to realise that this is a traditional marriage. The husband is not expected to be faithful because he can marry other women. It is unfair but that's tradition for you. It's marriages conducted at the Registry or at a church authorised to wed and issue certificates, that both parties take the same oath and infidelity by both the man and the woman, is forbidden.

Ronalda. said...

If the man refuses to accept the return of the bride price, the lady in question should file for the dissolution of the marriage at the customary court. The customary court has the powers to dissolve traditional marriages where the man refuses to accept the bride price.

It will be paid into the court's Registry and for all intents and purposes that marriage ceases to exist in law and tradition. You can "cage" a wife by refusing to collect the bride price you paid. I hope lady gets legal advice.

They both need to be accountable to themselves and each other otherwise the good one among them suffers due to the bad one's conduct/actions/extramarital activities. It is not in every situation that you have to bury your head in the sand as long just because you're the one doing what is right. No no!
