The Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN) Kaduna State chapter has blamed the high rate of divorce among couples in Nigeria on lack of understanding and forgiveness.
The State Amira of FOMWAN, Aisha Isyaku Tukur, stated this during a marriage counselling for parents and couples held in Kaduna.
According to her, “Marriage is an Ibadah (devotion) and people should see it as such, unfortunately, people who go into marriage do not understand what it is all about.
“Many young couples today marry without knowing what marriage is all about. They think it is about posting flamboyant marriage proposals, wedding pictures and all sorts on social media, those are an outward show of love; not from the heart and just a few months into the marriage, they start having a crisis.”
Speaking earlier, the guest speaker and Permanent Secretary of the Kaduna Peace Commission, Khadija Hawaja Gambo, said the corruption in the land is also affecting the family setting.
According to her, “When parents give food that is obtained through dubious means to their children, the food rather than nourish them, inculcates in them some bad character that is seen today.”
