Marriage is and would always be a sensitive issue, most people dabble into this sacred union for one material or physical reason or another. Most times it is not sustainable for too long and they have to call it quits. These people do not just break their hearts, they break the souls of their kids, they scatter relationships between people their union have brought together and so on and so fourth.
According to reports, more than 30,000 broken and failed marriages were recorded in Badagry, Lagos, between January and September 2016, an NGO, Family Reloaded Organisation, revealed on Wednesday.
The organisation’s coordinator, Mrs Sesi Sebinun told NAN in Lagos that the major cause of broken homes was negligence of duties from both parties.
“There are so many broken homes in Badagry and the number is going to increase if urgent steps are not taken to address the situation.” On causes of failed marriages, she said: “The husband fails to see that he is the man of the house while the wife isn’t submissive and these cause friction in the house.”
She noted that violence in marriages was due to impatience from the two parties.
