January 21, (THEWILL) – Veteran actress, Patience Ozokwor, aka, Mama G has stated that women battling domestic violence in their marriages should run for their dear lives.
She made this known while chatting with Mercy Johnson Okojie, on her cooking show, Mercy’s Menu.
According to her, God is not against separation but divorce. She added that if a woman prays and her husband did not change, she should run for her life.
“God is not against separation. What God doesn’t want is divorce. God is not saying we should not separate because sometimes he does not know that we have violated.
“Coming from a Christian background, we are not allowed to divorce.
“If you pray and the man turns around to become something else, escape for your dear life. Because it is only those who are alive that can tell the story. When you are dead nobody can tell your story for you.
“For me, marriage is forever. Till death do us part. That is the way I brought up my children. What we have today baffles me.
“I feel for the children that they’re giving birth to now because I don’t know how they would learn something better from their parents.”
