That phrase, ’till death do us part’ or ‘for better for worse’ isn’t for this generation – True life story of a Nigerian bus driver

Published

By

I am a commercial driver in the city of Lagos. I’m married with three children. I love my wife and children and make sure they’re not denied the good things of life I can afford. I do well financially because the bus I’m driving is mine and don’t account for anyone.

Things were going on well, we’ll have issues and settle. I believe my wife loves me as much as I love her. I did not hold back from showing her that I love her. Little did I know she’d show me the true meaning of ‘terrible.’

My problem started when I had an accident that almost claimed my life, my legs were affected badly and I stayed months at LUTH. My wife stayed with me giving me care but pouring her frustration on me. I didn’t bother as I understood her reasons. She was angry money wasn’t coming in and I was using my savings to pay for hospital bills. My family was giving the little they have and coming to see us regularly at the hospital. Sometimes, they stay with me while my wife goes back to the children.

The accident almost incapacitated me because it affected my wife’s behavior towards me. She stopped seeing the future with me. On one occasion, she lashed at me and the nurses scolded her. I was bearing her ill treatments believing she’ll change or even understand I didn’t bring this predicament to myself and that anybody can be involved in an accident. Some people’s situations change even without an accident.
Several times, I’ve pleaded with her while in the hospital bed to bear with me and put up with this situation, that once I’m out, healthy and strong, things will be fine. But that didn’t yield any change in her attitude towards me. I resorted to bearing her and pretending those things weren’t happening.

On several occasions, she had told me that this is not what she will do all her life but I didn’t read meaning to that. I took it as mere words coming from someone who is angry. Sometimes, she will come stay with me at the hospital other days I won’t see her, I will call her on phone but to no avail. This kept happening and I stopped complaining since other caregivers whose loved ones are in same ward with me were helping me.

One morning, my wife brought my three kids to the hospital, I was happy believing it was a visit to see their father not knowing my wife brought them because she’s leaving me. In her exact words, she said, I’m tired of this thing, I am leaving. See your children.’ Before I could understand what she said, she had left. I was confused, I couldn’t talk, I felt my life was finished. How do I take care of these children while being confined in a hospital bed.

I called my family to inform them of the new development. They tried to reach her and her family members but it was futile.
My family members took my children.

When I got better a little, I begged to be discharged because I have exhausted all I had saved. I brought my two sons back to stay with me because I’d be needing help to stand and move around while I allow the eldest one my daughter to stay with my brother.
I’m looking forward to start something small in front of my house if I see money to help me cater for the two children with me. Since my wife left me, it hasn’t been easy but I believe I will be up on my feet one day and my children won’t forget my little efforts towards them.

If you ask me if I had seen the other side of life, do you know my reply? I have seen the extreme side of life!

‘Aunt, I’m asking for help. ‘Aunty, please help me. It’s not money that I want; I just need you to buy me exercise books for school – 12-year-old boy named Ernest Make a Viral Headline Request

Published

“I met a 12-year-old boy named Ernest who approached me and said, ‘Aunt, I’m asking for help.’ Initially, I hesitated and ignored him, but he persisted, saying, ‘Aunty, please help me. It’s not money that I want; I just need you to buy me exercise books for school.’ He explained that he lives with his grandmother and younger brother, and his grandmother’s legs are swollen to the extent that she cannot walk. He told me he attends a small community primary school and has no one to provide him with books, although he already has a uniform and shoes from the earnings of the odd jobs he’s been doing.

We went to a shop in the market, and I bought 10 exercise books for him. The boy was overjoyed and said, ‘Aunty, they’ll last me the whole year until I write my final exams.’ He shared that his grandmother used to sell vegetables to support him and his brother, but her swelling legs prevent her from continuing, leaving him with no choice but to walk to town every day to seek help or find work if available to earn money for food.

His eloquence and the details he shared in such a short time amazed me.

Please, let’s not ignore those who ask for help, as some truly need it. I’m glad I could extend a helping hand to this little boy in the best way I could.”

for 6 yrs of marriage, I and my wife were unable to have kids, luckily my family wasn’t given us any pressure but rather they kept encouraging& consoling us to wait for God’s time .

My wife brought a suggestion that we adopt a baby, I refused at first but I later came to a conclusion it might be the right thing to do since, she was crying almost every night for our childlessness. so I thought to my self this could be a way to make her feel better while we wait for our own,

We finally adopted a baby of 5 yrs old, Miraculously, 2 months later my wife got pregnant, glory be to God I’m now a father of twins a boy and a girl… It’s been a year, so I noticed my wife  gradually becoming cruel to our adopted son, as she now mistreat & even starves him on daily bases as heard from very close neighbors, especially in my absence

She even wants us to go and return the boy to the orphanage were we took him as she no longer wants him, she claims we now have kids & there isn’t need keeping the boy around as she can’t  raise someone else’s child . I’ve tried begging my wife, but she has refused to see reasons with me why we should keep the little boy because according to her she wants to protect her childrens future

Actually, I believe God used this boy to bless us, even my business started to flourish the moment he came in to my house but yet I don’t want to loose my family as my wife threatens to leave with my children if I do not send the boy away

pls people kindly advise me on this because I don’t know what els to do  at the moment”

I met a guy by name Frank, I was 17yrs old that time, he’ll always help me & decided to sent me back to school. He sold fruits on the streets so that he could pay my fees before he later got a job as a truck driver & sent me to university well, thats by the way, actually as we speak, I’m actually working as a lawyer. My problem is that, honestly i can’t continue with this relationship, I’ve tried & tried to keep up but i can’t, Franking is just not my type of man, not even close, I no longer see myself in this, i don’t want to go into a relationship or marriage just out of pity, I don’t deserve that..

I’m actually grateful he helped me when i had no one but I can’t..
I want somebody in my own class not a truck driver! it doesn’t look good on my reputation, i can’t even introduce him to my friends or colleagues because am ashamed of him & very sure they laugh at me behind my back well, to cut the long story short, i met a guy in my final year. We’ve been going on for almost a year now & he has proposed, our wedding cards are already in process as we speak

But, the issue am facing now is, i just do not know how to go about it telling Frank, he’s a good guy, pls help me, advise me on this, how best can I tell him this without hurting his feelings I’m so confused in this pls!. .
