Chronicle Of Blog Visitor Narrative....

Hmmmmm.......









 STAND ALONE NARRATIVE

HOT SLAP



I think I am ready to end my marriage. On Saturday, my husband and I had an argument over something that would have been a non issue on a normal day and without provocation(God bears me witness that I did not attack him verbally with insults or physically), he slapped me repeatedly.

 This is unforgivable because I am 5months+ pregnant. 


Even though it has never happened before and he was under the influence of alcohol, that is not an excuse. I have told him I dont think I want to continue in this marriage and he has been begging. 

He even swore with a bible for God to take his life by accident if he ever hits me again. He has been a good husband and father before this event and I dont know if I should give him another chance because he hurt me badly. 

DV is a no no for me and its not something I grew up witnessing with my parents so I have Zero tolerance for it.



*Your hubby got drunk and slapped you and has sworn that God should take his life if he does it again?Madam you should not have even allowed him swear because under the influence he will not remember


Sometimes,the first slap is just the beginning......

  1. “He was under the influence”, what it means is that he just needs to get under this influence whenever he wants to hit you so he can get away with it.
    Honestly, the ball is in your court. If you claim you have low tolerance for something, you wouldn’t be here seeking advice because majority will definitely ask you to stay since you have stated clearly that it has happened only once. Hopefully, if it ever happens again you’d be alive to come and share with us. Married people with 100 years experience should be able to guide you accordingly. All the best!

    1. Seriously babe, you can't know it all. You always feel we are waiting for your opinion. And you ensure you must come give it to us hot hot on every chronicle.
      Pls you sound so ignorant it renders me mopping and then I burst out laughing.

      It's a faceless blog, chill with your great wisdomic opinions doppelganger. You almost always miss the point. Ciao.

    2. Yes @ Doppelganger I will advice her to stay, we all make mistakes.

      Madam pls forgive him since is his 1st but if he tries it again DIVORCE him straight up.

    3. Forgive but warn him. Pregnancy causes anger issues too

    4. I agree with Lily simple, I'll just add that you get him to stop drinking since that was what influenced him. Let him choose between you and alcohol. Then pray for him and cancel the curse. But make it very clear that any day he drinks alcohol that you are out!!!

      Delete
    5. He wont stop drinking. Next time it will be more than a slap, he will keep swearing and keep testing you to see how much of abuse you can tolerate. I have been there and I finally left but wish I left earlier

    6. Hmmmmm

      Many men in naija have this violence trait in them. It's like a norm because of society and environment.

      Even Nigerian parents batter their kids how it pleases them, even in adulthood.

      I stopped at a mechanic sometime in march last year to fix something in my car and was shocked with what I saw. A full grown man supposedly in his 30s was kneeling down and the oga was flogging him on his ass.

      I wept. I waited for the show to be over before approaching the so called oga and he said the boy didn't take in some work materials and rain messed them up. Told him what the guy did was wrong, but he shouldn't be flogging a full grown adult.

      He was like *icho ka umuazi a la niyi* (u want this kids to spoil?). Told him which kid? He went on rambling about the worst things he endured while doing his own apprenticeship

      That was when it dawned on me that it was a cycle!

      Majority of them make noise on social media, but still do this shit in their homes.

      The day my colleague's wife confided in me that he sometimes beats her up, I almost fainted! This guy is one of the best in human rights activism in my office (I am a lawyer).

      I am not telling this to suggest you stay back poster (cos I don't know what to say as per advice)

      I am just using this as an opportunity to voice my thoughts on how this madness is a cycle that is still deeply rooted in our society and majority of the people screaming blue murder for it are still doing this shit/enduring this shit in secret.

      May God help everyone

    9. As a man, who to a certain extent understands the psychology of men. If it was one slap, i'd say stay and wait it out, it might not be a thing. But it was repeatedly done, thats a different animal altogether and you are pregnant?!!! Nigga had been holding it in for a while. HE WILL HIT YOU AGAIN. Its not a taboo to him, from this point, advice yourself.

    10. Why not leave Doppelganger and face the chronicle? I have noticed that anon always complaining when Doppel posts. I thank God Doppel no dey send una.

She did not abuse anyone and she has every right to comment. Tankio!

    11. please leave doppel alone. Some of us love to see her comments. Everyone cannot be rubbing your head or trying to kiss your ass.If you don't like her comments, just jump and pass. Leave her alone!!!!

    12. Madam, I know you wil not leave so I will tel you this only this one time.

      Counseling!!!!
      Do not do the ‘forgive and let go’ thing that We Nigerians do. Well, that is if you want your marriage to be peaceful and happy going forward. Because if you do? 3 years or less down the line, it will happen again and he will be drunk too. Or when any hardship comes, he will turn to alcohol and use that excuse to batter you!!

      Put your foot down! Keep that anger burning and let him agree to go for couples therapy as your only condition to continue the marriage.

      Oh and by therapy. I do not mean go to your pastor. Please find a licensed marriage counselor. There are a couple popular ones in Lagos now and I have heard of their wonderful work.

    13. Anon 17:55 You are so right. Violence is sadly a defect that many Nigerian men turn to when things dont go their way. That and calling women ashawo. It's like they secretly hate women. Even as bad as bolt or uber drivers getting physical or abusive with female passengers to prove one rubbish point to their manhood or what? I experienced it for the first time on Friday. Luckily for me I ended the trip before it turns physical and the guy use his frustration and bad market to spoil my weekend or harm me. The guy con dey order me to get out of his car ontop say I wan quietly and neatly eat popcorn for his car n he didnt want me to eat. Only in naija bolt driver will say u cannot eat. When someone is almost dying of hunger?? Na wa. I've never heard of such. I don't get embarrassed esp when I know I'm in the right so if that was his plan, then he failed. Lol. I made sure to report his dumbass to bolt and they have suspended the guy. Very vile, bad mouthed creature. Men like him hate women and are waiting for every opportunity to run to blogs to say one woman was rude to him. Frustrated beings

  2. Sorry about the slap, I wont tell you to leave now, u can leave when it becomes consistent, when a man/woman is drunk, avoid them, they can stab you n claim drunk.

      Let him just set his face so you can give him two hot slaps... That would teach him never to do it again๐Ÿคฃ

  3. He shouldn’t have slapped you like that in your condition. What if you passed out or something had happened to your pregnancy? No matter what you did or said to him, he shouldn’t have done that.
    Since he’s been an amazing husband and father, please forgive him and give him a second chance.
    If it happens again, you have every right to walk away.

  11. Sorry poster. We all know you are not going anywhere! Atleast not this first time!
    Warn him seriously and inform important peeps in your marriage of this development.

    Have it at the back of your mind that he will do it again.

    But start planning for the next incidence.

    Fix your finances, make sure you have savings that can pay rent, pay school fees, feed and cloth you and your kids comfortably for 1 year minimum without assistance when shit gets real next time!

    Don't ever inform him again you will leave if he hits you. Keep it to yourself. Taking him unawares next time will be to your advantage.
    That is if you have it in plan to leave with your kids.

    Just start putting boss moves in place for eventuality.

    Pele ooh. Please take care of yourself to avoid developing Pre-eclampsia because of high blood pressure.

  14. DV is never a good thing and no man should ever hit a woman no matter the circumstances
    not to talk of a pregnant women.
    Mmmmmhhhh, so this man was drunk and slapped you without...?"
    Eziokwu?๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Never vouch for or believe the words or actions of a drunk person
    But never vouch for or believe the words or actions/behavior of a pregnant woman
    I don't mean any insult here (make ndi uta). All I am saying is that during pregnancy
    you may not know when you run your mouth (if you do not live a life of discipline through fasting
    before the pregnancy). I've been there -fasting before taking in and knowing the difference... ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
    All I can tell you Sisi is this, tell your husband that "swearing with a bible" won't cut it, but
    living according to the biblical teachings of Jesus (in that case, you take the first step).
    Since alcohol is the culprit (which I don't think he suddenly began drinking during marriage), let
    him drop alcohol once and for all. Tell him that you want both of you to
    read at least a chapter of that bible, especially the New Testament, every morning and pray
    before he leaves the house. Yes, that that's your condition to know that he means not to
    land hot slap on you again. if you don't take this steps, mmmmhhh, that red pen up there
    may mean we should expect the second, third and, and... don't offload him o.
    Ekwuchakwa m -I don yarn finish.๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜



    Make I show you one of those verses to show him;
    Ephesians 5: …28In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies.
    He who loves his wife loves himself. 29Indeed, no one ever hated his own body, but he
    nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church. 30For we are members of His body.…

  16. Please pardon him, for the sake of God Almighty. Your hubby askd for forgiveness, plus 4give.Also what brought up this argument that made him slap you playing avoid it. Also you two should always pray TOGETHER, for couples who pray together, stay together. God bless you and happy pregnancy journey and safe delivery when due. E go be ✌

    ReplyDelete
  17. Okay, one slap i can say it's the drunken state but repeatedly?
    Just how drunk was he?

    Arguing with him knowing he was under the influence was not a smart move but his action is inexcusable.

    If the table was turned and it happened to me just like you detailed, i wouldn't leave just yet. There's always room for forgiveness for a first time offense. But that's just me, i don't know bout you, sis. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. My first reaction was to sigh to this chronicle.

    I work in a liquor store and I take many bullshit from customers who are tipsy, not because I can't quit (which equates to divorce) or because I dey do 'customers is always right' (after a degree in Philosophy I don't believe that they way it is misused). I hang on because I know alcohol alters the senses.

    And I give these customers shit sometimes too. I don't do it because my uncle owns the place but because "To live is to find a balance". Gandhi was a pacifist, but he knew when to add some pepper


    Do you have a mother figure? Have you spoken about this with them?

    Many people be shouting leave, divorce, this that, it's easy putting down words. I tell you eh, the reality of life is difficult to navigate.

    Marriage ain't a bed of roses, that's why people are advised to seek God's face concerning their partner before marriage,& also continue in prayers while married.Pls,Have you been praying for your hubby & your marriage?...don't you know dat d devil is out to ruin marriages & you want to give him a hand by walking out of your marriage becos of a mere slap??...have you worked on your marriage (both spiritually & physically),before you decided to call it quits?..I can never quit my marriage becos of a slap & I won't advise you to.pls wake up in the midnight & pray concerning your marriage!!!....

    when ladies are single,they know how to pray & cry to God for marriage.But once they get married(thinking everything has been settled),they forget God & begin to enjoy the world.Pls,carry your cross & fight your marital battle yourself!

  21. Hmm. I absolutely hate anything that threatens the sanctity of marriage, and that's why I hate hearing stories like this. My dear start saving for a rainy day because you and I know that you are not going anywhere and oga will not stop. If I were you, I will move out to stay with my parents for a few months. I will then get him to sign an undertaking that he will never lay his hand on me and that he will quit alcohol. I will also demand he pays 'compensation' so I will at least have some financial buffer. I truly wish you the best but this does not bode well for the future.

    1. And who says he will not stop? Please stop making marriage look like child's play, where you can leave at any provocation. The young man in question has apologised, he should be given a benefit of the doubt. No be only undertaken...

      Delete
  22. Well, one thing you should have at the back of your mind now is that your husband has a wicked side to him, alcohol doesn’t give new behaviors, it amplifies existing ones. Hitting a woman who is pregnant shows a man that is wicked and violent; he may have controlled himself thus far but if you let this one slide easily, he could let himself loose and he’ll hit you whenever he has the urge to - alcohol or no alcohol.
    I will advise you raise a much dust as possible on this one instance, e.g reporting to family, taking a break from living together, enforcing a condition to living together (like quitting alcohol) etc; you will know better what you can do. I will also advise after this to forgive him and continue the marriage, but by then he will understand that the next one sees you out of the marriage.
    On the other hand, reflect also on your words before the incident. Consider if you said something you shouldn’t have said, if so, also refrain from such going forward.

  25. I would advise you give him a second chance since he has been a good husband. Though domestic violence starts just like this, give him the benefit of doubt. It might be difficult but please don't condone any form of abuse the next time.
    Also, he needs to stop getting drunk and then coming home to hit you, let him know that he needs to stop asap.
    At this your condition, you need all the love and attention not slap and any other forms of abuse. Be safe dear, sending you lots of love and kisses.

  29. Madam, I understand your situation but I don't think u should quit ur marraigm yet.

    In my first year of marriage, I and my husband had a hot misunderstanding and he slapped me. Just like ur's, he pleaded and pleaded with me that it wouldn't happen again. True to his words, this is 10years later, He hasn't hit me again. He has been a wonderful father and the best husband anyone could ask for.

    I'm not asking u to entertain Dv, I'm saying give it time. If it was a mistake, it won't happen again and then u can make a decision.

    If he is a good man as u said, then don't lose him because of a "mistake".
    It's not easy to raise a child alone

  33. The second time may be your last time on this earth. You are also pregnant and more prone to blood pressure and other such things. If you must stay please inform your siblings and both your parents, your closest friends (people who will go out of their way to investigate should (Godforbid) anything bad happens to you and you’re not there to tell your story)
    People on this blog often guilt people for saying “leave a bad marriage” but the reason we value marriage in Nigeria is simply because it’s valued. That’s all. It’s a sacred institution but it’s not the only way to live to please God. If you must stay, please have it chronicled with relatives and have him sign an undertaking. Act as crazy as you must: he slapped you and continued, that’s like a baby lion (cub) who tastes blood and keeps going for more. Ask them if they’ve ever seen a black man slap a white woman on tv or anywhere in their lives. Mistakes they never make with white women they feel free to make with us

  34. Please, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR MARRIAGE!

    My hubby hit my in our third year of marriage, he pleaded and promised NEVER TO HIT ME AGAIN. This is our 19 years and he never hit me.

    Please FORGIVE!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just let your famiky know and if you have able brothers, let them roughen him a bit to scare him, so he won't think or dare it under the influence of even PURE WATER. How can a grown man slap his own pregnant wife and blame alcohol? It means he is not mature enough to be a man and married. Can a drunk man slap himself? His wife is his flesh, so why slap her. It is not acohol but a hidden nature which if not TAMED, will repeat it again. But once he knows the family knows and has been CAUTIONED by his fellow men, he will discipline himself.
