- An Abuja-based lawyer identified as Annebrafa has said that there are 4000 divorce applications in Abuja already
- The lawyer lamented that it is really much considering that the year is barely two months old
- Annebrafa also said that some of the marriages seeking legal separation are not up to a year
Marriages are hard work as it takes a lot from both parties involved to make things go well. Perhaps, this is what some people see when they say that a good marriage is an achievement.
While it is a better choice to go separate ways when things do not longer work, a broken marriage is a dent, a mark that something serious must have gone wrong or that both partners were just never ready.
An Abuja based lawyer, Annebrefa, on Twitter on Friday, February, 21, raised an alarm on the 4000 divorce applications that have been filed this year alone.
She said that those applications were just those filed in the country's capital. Imagine if other states are factored in.
Annebrefa added that some of the marriages involved were just a year old. She ended her by asking "What is really happening?"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a couple who met in the 80s and married three days after is celebrating 37 years of marriage and boy if this is not relationship goals then tell me what is.
A Twitter user shared a sweet post of the couple who happen to be her parents and social media was abuzz with shock and joy in equal measure.
Only identified as Africanprize, the lady wished her folks happier days ahead as she praised their dedication to each other.
"My parents got married three days after they met. They just celebrated 37 years. Love knows no timeline," she wrote.
The excited woman showed off a photo of her parents back when they were young and all that could be seen in their eyes was unending love.
Of course in this modern-day, such relationships are frowned upon as most people insist on dating for a couple of years before settling into marriage.
