A Nigerian mum, Alabi Temitope Enitan, recently took to Instagram to share a bit of the conversation she once had with her six-year-old daughter, Oluwasemilore.
According to Enitan, just a few days after they moved to their new house, her daughter had asked her if a woman could marry another woman or if a man could marry another man.
She said she replied her daughter in the affirmative before her daughter said the next words:
“I don’t want to get married, they will beat me.”
Enitan then went ahead to explain how she was once in a very abusive marriage where she endured her husband’s numerous cheating and beatings.
According to her, she had wanted a home with her husband but he was far from being an apartment. Enitan said that the abuse started verbally and even recounted the first time he hit her.
She said it happened when she was in the car with her ex-husband and she sat in the back seat carrying their daughter. Enitan added that all she did was summon the courage to finally reply his numerous insults by saying ‘you too’.
The woman said that he reached out from the driver’s seat to hit her, not minding that he was driving or that their child was in the car.
In her words:
“You had cussed me out in Yoruba and for the first time, I found my voice and replied to you, not by cussing you, I simply said ‘’you too’ and out of nowhere, I saw your hand moving swiftly towards me. You didn’t care that you were driving, nor that our child was in that car, you hit me, remember?”
