{RELATIIONSHIP} Text message got me the beating of my life – Wife

A 29-year old new bride, Perpetual Ezenwa, has bitterly described how her husband of four months beat her up because of a text message she got from a friend which reads, “Good day mad­am, how’s your weekend.”
She has asked the customary court in Igando, Lagos to dis­solve her four-month old mar­riage to Charles Ezenwa. She said that her husband started beating her less than four days after paying her dowry. Perpet­ual said she married Charles af­ter dating him for less than two months and now seeks divorce over what she tagged ‘domestic violence.’

She said, “We married af­ter courting for less than two months. Before I married him, I started noticing his behaviours but when I told my father, he said I should not leave him that he would change after marriage
“I believed he said that be­cause they are from the same village in Imo State and being the first daughter of my par­ents, they wanted me to marry on time. But, he kept becoming worse and I’ve decided to leave after four months of our mar­riage. Four days after the pay­ment of my dowry and our tra­ditional marriage, he started beating me on flimsy excus­es. He beat me with turning sticks in one of those days all because I received a text mes­sage from a friend and the mes­sage only reads ‘good day mad­am, how’s your weekend.’ This was what Charles saw that day and he nearly killed me. Come to think of it, this same man that was beating me is having an affair with a fiancée of one of our neighbours. He was caught on one of those days and I got to know about it. I told my fa­ther of all the happenstance but what he could only say was that I should endure it. When I couldn’t bear it again, I moved to my parent’s house and I’ve asked Charles to come and get his dowry back according to our tradition so that I can marry an­other man but he has refused to collect it saying he would allow me to suffer because he knew I can’t marry another man unless he collects the dowry and that I would grow old in my father’s house.”
