In related news, a woman has reportedly gotten married to a man with two wives despite divorcing her first husband because he took a second wife.
A man identified as Kawu Garba, shared the story on Twitter, saying the lady sold her properties to sponsor her husband through law school.
However, when the man finished and got his dream job, he decided to take another wife, but his first wife refused to be in a polygamous marriage.
She asked for a divorce and he initially declined but later agreed after much pressure from his in-laws. He got custody of their three children, whereas she left empty handed and remained single for four years.
After a long wait as a divorcee, she agreed to be the third wife for another man who asked for her hand in marriage..
Kawu wrote; “This woman sold her furniture and paid for her husband to attend the school of law. After he finished and got the job of his dream, he decided to add another wife. The wife insisted on a divorce, but he refused to let her go. After much pressure from the woman and her family, he later divorced and collected his 3 children.
The children are known with his new wife, in his house while the divorced woman is recently married as a 3rd wife after 4 years of being at home. I feel staying with her old husband and allowing him to have married the second wife would have been a better option. Now her children would have to be raised by another woman.”
