A Nigerian woman finds herself contemplating divorce after uncovering her husband’s inability to father a child, six years into their marital union. Their commitment to each other as virgins when they got married exacerbates the situation.
This complex situation was shared by a Twitter user, @ruleyourspace, revealing that this perplexed woman is her kin.
An incendiary couple.
The narrative suggests that after six years of marriage, the couple found themselves childless. Upon seeking medical attention, they discovered the main hurdle.
The man’s infertility was identified as the issue, preventing his wife from getting pregnant.
In her longing to bear children, the woman is now deliberating ending the marriage.
The narrative continues…
“We were both virgins at the time of our marriage. After six years, it emerged that infertility on my husband’s part was the reason for us failing several fertility tests. He suffers from a low sperm count. He remains hopeful of divine intervention. I want him to seek treatment. At 37, I yearn for my own children. We both serve in church. Is it possible for me to seek a divorce?
This is the ordeal of my cousin. She fervently hopes for a solution within the marriage, but her husband is reluctant to consider treatments or hospital visits. Recently, she encountered a single father with a child, who expressed interest in marrying her. She is conflicted and seeks my counsel. Troublesome!
Our conversation was thought-provoking. He lamented, ‘I’ve dedicated my life to the service of God, why has this hardship befallen me?’ To which I replied: Do you recall the tribulations of Abraham and Sarah, those of Job? Perhaps, this is a test from God. While her worry centers on her ticking biological clock, he feels that every action cast doubt on their faith. We learn new things every day.”
Review the narrative…
We both entered the marriage pact as virgins. Six years down the line, my husband’s infertility emerged, rendering us childless despite numerous fertility tests. He has a low sperm count. He is trusting for a miracle. I want him to seek help. I am 37, and yearn for children of my own. We are both church servers. Am I justified to seek divorce?
Could I pursue divorce?
