DON’T BE A SAVAGE TO YOUR ‘TIWA’
Last month, I wrote the first part of this message titled, ‘Don’t let Tiwa turn you to a savage.’
Today, I write the second part and I will address the men.
The cases of domestic violence have become so many that I need to ask the big question: Men, what is happening? What will make you lift your hands to brutalise and in some cases KILL YOUR WIFE?
What is the matter?
You went to her father’s house to prostrate; you swore to love and cherish her; you brought her home and made her change her name. You started using TIWA(Our own) instead of TEMI (My own) because you became ONE!
Why have you suddenly become a SAVAGE (of persons or their actions, able or disposed to inflict pain or suffering- word web definition) to your TIWA?
I have heard men give the GOLDEN EXCUSE: some women have such BITING TONGUES that they deserve to be beaten up! Interesting line of thought but I have to ask this: Haven’t you had a female boss that has such a BITING TONGUE? Have you EVER DARED to slap her, not to talk of beat her up, even if you are older than she is? How can you? When you remember all the luxuries that you will KISS GOODBYE if you try it, your HAND WILL HANG!
Then why do you batter your wife? A woman who left everything to be with you, who serves you, carries the children? Yet you treat her like trash? May God forgive you!
If she annoys you that much, remember you did not MARRY HER ON THE STREETS! Take her back to her family IN ONE PIECE!
Stop this WIFE BATTERY!
I rest my case!
