The Divorce

Autumn leaves scattered across the lawn, driven by a strong wind from the relentless sea, as Chidimma stood by her hotel room window for a long time; watching the sea, thinking of what transpired between she and her new husband the previous night at the beach side.

Her new husband had thought that if they traveled to Puerto rico for their honeymoon, it will take her mind off her best friend’s death.

But Chidimma knew better. Kaine would never have encouraged her to marry Phillip if she had told her what he really was.

She thought of many times Phillip had told her sex before marriage won’t be accepted, until after they are married.
But she felt lucky to have met such an incredible young man who had so much Chastity and fear for sin.

Her ex husband Baako used to beat her up and had sex with her uncountable times in a day; she couldn’t cope anymore, she ran away to New York to stay wit Kaine for a while, and after Baako had stayed for long time without her, he seek for a divorce and remarried a girl from south London. But before a year ended, Baako was jailed for killing his new wife.

Dark storm clouds gathered, and a chill shook Chidimma as she tried without success to loosen the tiny hooks at the back of her dress.

Her honeymoon should have been part of the happy moments of her life, but it wasn’t.
Her father had refused to attend the wedding ceremony because he did not approve of her marrying Phillip.

Chidimma’s father knew that Phillip was an American who was forced to be married by his campaign manager. He was a democrat who had not dated or being with a woman all through his years as a young American politician. And for the California senate to grant him a go-ahead, he needed to have a wife by his side.
And Chidimma’s father found the characteristics of Phillip as being weird and suspicious.

There had been a time he was in friendly terms with politicians, but suddenly he changed when Phillip came into Chidimma’s life.

“Hi” Phillip said, as Chidimma exhaled out of her thoughts.

“Hi” she replied in soft whispers.

“I am sorry about yesterday, I mean what you saw at the beach. I didn’t mean to hurt you, please do not tell anyone. My career as a governor might be canceled.”

“I won’t. But I seek for a divorce.” Chidimma said boldly.

“No? No divorce please, it’s gonna affect my career.

“I don’t give a damn about your fucking career! We’ve been married for two days and you haven’t seen my panties, no kiss, no hugs, no romance, no love making! I am not a piece of furniture. This marriage wasn’t based on political contract, I married you because I love you.”

Chidimma’s eyes took on a faraway look.

“You don’t wanna be California’s first lady?” Phillip said settling on the soft sofa.

Sadness tore through her like ground glass, as she strode out.

“Get ready to be in court for a divorce, I can never ever marry you again!”

Phillip ran after her and stood in front of her, blocking her way out. “Please Dimma, please don’t do this.” He said and knelt on the Persian rug.
But Chidimma pushed him off and walked away.

“I heard that Nigerian girls are heartless! I would have gone for a Mexican!” He yelled.

A month later, the news about Phillip being divorced by his wife went around, reasons was unknown by the reporters.

Chidimma stood stiffly in court, staring sternly at the Judge.
Philip had been shivering since Elis his campaign manager took him.

“Relax, comport yourself. I had told you that black women are crazy people, you have told her you really are.” Elis whispered into his ears, and walked away into the crowd of reporters who were waiting anxiously.

“Mrs Phillip, may we know why you seek to divorce your husband of two days?” The female judge asked shrilly, pulling her eye glasses to her nose and glaring at Chidimma.

“He is homosexual, I caught him making love to Becham Tailor his running mate at the beach side.” She answered loudly. Her voice sent down spines into people’s veins.

Philip became ashamed, as everyone murmured and screamed aloud. It was the worse moment of his life.

Nigerian couple, Anita and Asuquo are getting maried this week, starting with a traditional wedding in Akwa Ibom today.

Taking to Facebook , Anita narrated how she used to make fun of Asuquo over his political views, aspiration and disposition. In fact, she never liked him and one time went into his inbox to tell him that he is a complete joke after she spotted his campaign posters. Read below:

He was my friend on Facebook but we never chatted, even though I saw some of his posts, I took no notice.
All these political people, nki dogho do interested.
I never liked him (nki bata bad anye)
I remember making fun of him with a friend once…
One day I saw a poster of him, he was contesting for a position; I felt it was a complete joke because I knew he wouldn’t win at that time. So I Went to his inbox to tell him bluntly what I felt about him and his poster.
That was the first time we chatted. He asked for my number, I RELUCTANTLY gave him my “business number.” I prayed he wouldn’t call.
That night, oga sent a love text, I rolled my eyes in contempt (mme ani do ayem). In my mind he wasn’t up to the standard I dated or had in mind to date, I mean, I was even quiting a relationship I called ‘standard’.
I didnt know God was in a corner laughing.
God’s ways clearly differs from man’s ways!
Thereafter the baba called and I just knew I had entered one chance!
I finally met him on my sister’s wedding day and he WILLINGLY paid for all my pictures, he stayed with me till the very end. I was amazed at his kindness… I had found a diamond in the rough.
Overtime, I have learnt not to judge a book by its cover.
I have learnt what it means to love and be loved unconditionally.
I have learnt about sacrifice, forgiveness and hope.
I have learnt what it means to be courageous and determined against all odds.
We’ve been termed an unlikely pair with little connecting interests but we’ve been through the hurdles of a relationship even though we were a thousand miles apart.
We have trusted and believed in God and each other.
God has blessed me and I am thankful.
One year and 3 months later we will be saying ‘I do’ and spending a lifetime together.
I’m saying “I do” to my friend, cheer Master and partner in everi everi!!!!
Dear friends share in our joy, be happy for us, pray for us.
It’s today 22nd and 24th of November.

Without regular sex women risk mental disorder – Nigerian Psychiatrist

Published

on

A Nigerian psychiatrist, Dr Maymunah Kadiri has advised married women to have regular sex with their spouses in order to prevent depression and be happy.

 

Kadiri, who is the Medical Director of Pinnacle Medical Services gave the advice in a recent interview saying sex is not just to nourish a woman’s body, but it is also beneficial to her mental health.

“As women, there is need for us to make our spouses our best friends if we want to be mentally healthy. Studies have shown that women who have more active sex and in long term relationships were less likely to be depressed than women who went without sex.

So, more sex is important and essential. It is a remedy to curing women from having persistent headache. Low sexual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into.

A woman can be depressed when that sexual drive that she used to have is no more there. Frequent active sex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and quality of life,’’ Kadiri said.

 

She explained that sex was not just for procreation and to have children, adding that it could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep. Kadiri, popularly called ‘celebrity shrink’, urged women dealing with depression to frequently indulge in sex, while boosting their self-esteem.
