Couples group: do anything to save your marriage from collapse

By Cecilia Ijuo

The Moral Values ​​and Ethics Support Foundation (MoVES), a non-governmental organization (NGO), called on couples to do everything in their power to avoid divorce.

The president of the foundation, Ms. Pat Oseh, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

MoVES is a non-profit organization that focuses on children’s education, women’s rights, the empowerment of women and girls, the eradication of violence as well as gender equality.

She urged men to work on their marriage, saying the idea that only women should work on their marriage was one of the main reasons for the rising divorce rate in society.

She said men also have a major role to play in keeping their homes intact.

According to her, one of the main reasons for divorce is disrespect.

“Men should treat their women with respect and allow them to explore their God-given talents rather than stifle their growth.

Oseh, who is also the founder of the foundation, noted that some cases the foundation has negotiated over the years have disturbed men using their position as head of household to abuse and disrespect their wives.

Times have changed, she says, and women want the opportunity to explore their talents.

Oseh stressed that women are meant to compliment their husbands and not be seen as competitors, saying such a notion has caused so much conflict in families, leading to an increase in the divorce rate.

She said the foundation would hold an event called “Dear Man” to educate men on how to live peacefully with their wives.

“We are planning a program called ‘Dear Man’ and the reason is to educate men.

“We need to let the men know that these women are no longer the women of 50 years ago.

“They should have the opportunity to grow up, to be a part of what society does, their voice should be heard.

“It is disturbing that the divorce rate is so high in society today and one of the reasons is that there is so much attention on girls while boys are not getting half of that. Warning.

“There is a need for balance. In doing so, we will help marriages last much longer, if possible, forever, ”she said.

She lamented that parents’ lack of attention to the moral education of their male children has done more harm than good.

Oseh said, “This little girl in whom you have given so much training and invested so much in, will eventually marry a male child who has not received all of this training.

“In the end, they are not compatible, they are not able to understand each other.

“In some cases, challenges and even divorce show up very early in marriages.

“I’ve seen six-month-old marriages break down, which is unfortunate.

“So the Dear Man series is going to address these issues.

“Men or boys have to have this training so that that ‘perfect girl’ to whom you have given all the training, education and discipline does not end up marrying a man who does not have 10% of the discipline whom she disposes.

“Plans are being made to start this series and the boys who grow up to be men will eventually know how to behave with their wives to keep their house,” she said.

The president further pointed out that the organization is also planning a similar program for girls.

She said the program, called “The Path Project”, would focus on teaching leadership skills to girls from school age as well as how to balance work and family.

“The age we are in today, women are starting to break out of this societal norm where women are held in a corner and can do just a little.

“Today we have the Vice President of the United States as a woman, our own Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the Director General of the World Trade Organization and many more.

“Women should be allowed to speak out, to earn the same salaries as men in organizations, etc.

“Women should also be promoted to the top of an organizational framework like a man would be.

“It’s not about competing with men, it’s about complimenting them, it’s about fairness, it’s about justice.

“Our plea here is this: if a woman proves herself in any setting, whether intellectually or in terms of skills, she must be recognized as such and not deprived of her rights because she is a woman. . “

Oseh added that “we want to start training the elementary school girl to be a leader, so we catch them young.

“We don’t want them to wait until they graduate before taking leadership training.

“Every female child, by the time you graduate from high school, your aspirations should be high.

“We’re not going to teach them just how to cook and clean houses, but how to learn leadership skills.

She pointed out that the United Nations and Nigeria’s Ministry of Women’s Affairs are also working hard to change the narrative and ensure that women’s voices are heard around the world.

She advised women not to neglect their families or disrespect their husbands no matter how high they are, stressing that “it takes two for tano”. (NOPE)
