Would you blame Maduka for heeding his mother’s counsel and getting married to a village girl who has turned out to be a nightmare for him?

My name is Maduka, a 42-year-old man. As I write this, I am a very sad and frustrated man because a woman I got married to has made life a living hell for me. »
What is more painful is that Chioma was specially selected for me by my mother who practically forced me to dump my Lagos girlfriend to marry her.
The belief my mother held was that getting married to a woman she watched grow up from birth was the best for me and her superior argument won over in the end and I was forced to disappoint Mary whom I had dated for six years.
How was I to know that appearances do deceive as Chioma who was an angel, according to my mother, has turned out to be my worst nightmare.
Getting married to Chioma has become my worst nightmare as she is not only troublesome but adulterous, lazy and very wasteful.
Trouble started immediately after we got married and came back to Lagos. She displayed her character two days later when she fought with my landlady because the woman accused her of dumping refuse inside a gutter. My wife fought the poor woman and tore her clothes to shreds.
When I came back from work and was told what she did, I went to plead with the landlady but my wife came to meet me there and ordered me to leave the place. When I tried to caution her, she got mad and fought me.
I was so ashamed and when we got home, I tried to caution her but I got another side of her as she abused and insulted the living daylights out of me.
Since then, it has been one trouble or the other every day. We have been evicted in three different houses because of her trouble and constant fights with neighbours.
To cap it all, Chioma has been sleeping around with different men and I even doubt the paternity of two of our four children as they do not have any semblance of me or anyone in my family.
Many people have told me how men come to visit her whenever I travel out of the state on business and how she goes out at odd hours leaving the children alone at home, sometimes sleeping out.
Anytime I question her, she would fight me, break things in the house and on two occasions, she has stabbed me with broken bottles.
I am really fed up with her but I have been condoning her because of the children but how long will I be able to hold on?
Advice this fellow…..
