Fast rising Nollywood actress, Ann Edidem Bassey ,who hails from Akwa Ibom State had disclosed her view following continuous marriage fails in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
This year , Mercy Aigbe and Tonto Dikeh left their marital homes over domestic violence amongst other claims.
Ann told GoldmyneTV during a recent chat she said “I appreciate the fight against domestic violence because some men are so untrained about the issue of marriage,”
“But what happens to the good men, should they be psychologically killed by their women because of fear of not being included among the men that beat up their women? No.”
The actress who made her acting debut appearance in ‘Sexy Vampires’ with Ini Edo and Oge Okoye. also starred in ‘Child Seller,’ alongside, Mike Ezuruonye, Patience Ozokwor, Mercy Johnson and Angela Okorie.
“All I say here is that women should also be educated on the laws of marriage because it has laws just like all other institutions,”
The actress continued adding that “A wife cannot disobey and be stubborn to her husband and still expect a peaceful marriage or home.
“Fighting against domestic violence without educating today’s women, also, about the laws of marriage is like going to the farm without the farm tools. The strongest law is “wife submits to your husband and husband love your wife.”
“Women should be respectful. You can never be equal with your husband, apply respect to your marriage and see if he will be violence with you. If he does, then I support you to make a wise decision.”
Most of the Nollywood celebrities that have fallen victim of domestic abuse include, Faithia Balogun, Muma Gee, Foluke Daramola, and Chika Ike.Monalisa Chinda.
