Even though marriage is a vow, it is also a contract, which means if one person breaks the terms of the contract, no one will fault the other person for leaving;
For women: How to know when to call your marriage quits
There was a time when the saying, ‘we will not inherit the silence of our mothers’ was trending, we think it’s time to bring that saying back.
Here are some signs women need to leave their marriages:
1. One time adultery
You have every right to leave the marriage if he cheats, even if it is once. Though it is still a forgivable offence, perhaps it was one time when you both were having problems.
Many people forgive adultery and still go on with their marriage, but if you can’t live with it, fine.
Here's why adultery even once is enough because it is possible he has numerous children outside your marriage, and it was indeed not the first time.
2. He keeps cheating on you
This is continuous adultery, adultery that never stops, serially cheating.
Just when you think he has one mistress, you discover that they are five.
It’s disrespectful to yourself to stay in such a marriage, and anyone who says they love you but continues to hurt you is a manipulator.
3. He gave you STIS
He isn’t only sleeping around, but he is doing so without protection and now your vagina is infected with all sorts.
Marriage is about trust and if you can’t trust your partner in bed, then move on quickly.
4. He is physically abusive
If he hits, beats, shoves, slaps or threatens to do this to get you to obey him or conform to his behaviour, then you need to run away as far as possible.
Even if you have no money, your life is way more important. You can also report him to the police, family, and community members, so you are taken care of.
5. He takes your money
If he steals from you, then sis he has to go. The fact that you keep working and he continues to take your money without your permission shows he doesn’t care about you.
Men love to be providers, if he enjoys that you are the only one slaving away and not only that, he swindles you of your income then you got to leave him.
No one is saying leaving a marriage is easy especially when kids are involved, but often the repercussions of not leaving a toxic marriage on your mental and physical health are beyond words.
