- Extending a hand of friendship, she sent a touching message to her former student-turned-second wife
A Nigerian woman, Fatima Yusuf Nuhu, had nothing but kind words for her husband as he married her former student as a second wife.
On Wednesday, November 29, the woman shared her husband's wedding IV, inviting people to grace the December 2 occasion.
In another Facebook post on Sunday, December 3, the businesswoman opened up that she got to know about the wedding a week before it happened and commended her husband for being open about it.
The Muslim woman said they have been married for 20 years and reiterated her support for her husband's decision.
Fatima encouraged women to allow their husbands take new wives
She defended her husband's move as a way to reduce the number of unmarried women in the society and advocated for women to support their husbands when they decide to take second wives. In her words:
"...Given the considerable number of unmarried women today and the societal shifts we experience, I find it fitting to open our home and my husband's heart to another woman.
"Through this message, I aim to advocate and encourage women to support their husbands who choose to marry more than once."
Fatima had a message for the new wife
Writing further, she said her daughter would willingly embrace any role in marriage knowing she did so.
She welcomed the second wife with kind words. She wrote:
"Henceforth, my daughter is willing to embrace any role—be it first, second, third, or fourth wife—knowing her mother respects and accepts her father's decision to add more wife.
"Congratulations to the bride, and I look forward to a harmonious life together with our husband."
