  • Published:

"Dear Pulse,

My name is Dami, a 35-year-old woman with a sad story to tell. I don't know if my problem is spiritual or just a case of making wrong choices in my life.

It will interest your readers to know that at my age, I have been married five times and all the unions have ended in sadness with me always being at the receiving end.

Out of the five marriages, I have been saddled with four children to take care of with their fathers not wanting to have anything to do with them or their welfare.

I first got married when I was 18 and I must say I was madly in love with Segun and could not wait to become his wife. We had been dating for two years and when he proposed to me, I accepted wholeheartedly.

My father was not happy that I decided to get married at such a young age as he wanted me to go to school and get a degree but I assured him that I would continue with my education even as a married woman.

But the marriage did not last up to two years as Segun became something else the moment I moved into his house. He became so irresponsible that most days, I would go hungry and had to go to my mother to beg for food.

All he knew was to drink to stupor and chase after women. Then the beatings started and he would turn me into his punching bag. Even when I was carrying our baby, Segun would beat me so much that I lost the baby in one of such beatings.

By the time my father forcefully took me out of Segun's house, I was already pregnant again and my parents did their best to take care of me till I put to bed. Segun did not even show up for the child's naming ceremony.

I decided to move on with my life and went back to e polytechnic where I got my OND. At 25, I decided to try marriage yet again when Akin came into my life promising me heaven and earth.

But once we got married, I found out that he was already married with kids and his wife who had been living in the village, came back with her children and made my life a living hell. When she wanted to kill me, I had to leave with my second child.

Since then, I have tried marriage three more times and they have all ended in pains, heartaches, and sorrow for me. I don't know what is wrong with me. I have had to go for some spiritual deliverance or what Yoruba calls washing of head but to no avail.

I don't know if I was not destined to have a happy marriage. I need help fast.
