“I Lost My Pride, Self-Esteem And Baby In My Marriage” – Chika Ike
Chika who acted in several Nollywood movies including ‘Standing Alone,’ ‘My Prince,’ ‘My Princess,’ ‘Paradise’ and ‘Emotional Blackmail,’ exposed her pain via her Facebook
posts: “Growing up as a girl, I was always known as the sweetest kid on
the bloc. Before I got married, I have been through some relationships
and for once, no man had ever laid a finger on me.
The first time it happened in my marriage, I didn’t understand it
because I am not the type of woman a man beats but I guess there are no
types. It just happens and no woman deserves it. I thought it was love
or his way of expressing his emotions, but after every beating, he
pleads, cries and says it won’t happen again; once again, I thought it
was love and made excuses for him.
Over the years, when it kept happening consistently, I started looking for other definitions for it. I started losing my self-pride, self-esteem, self-worth, and most painfully, I lost my baby, (miscarriage). I almost lost my life in the process, and then I realized how serious and abnormal it really was.”
So sad there! Real men do not beat women.
