Nigerian media personality, Daddy Freeze, has listed and explained two major causes of divorce in the country.
The media personality took to his Instagram page to note that there would always be a high divorce rate as long as people keep getting married for the wrong reasons and consider marriage an achievement.
He wrote: "As long as people keep getting married for the wrong reasons and as long as they keep thinking that marriage is an achievement this will keep happening.
“Marry for the right reasons and divorce numbers will plummet. ~FRZ"
This is following the recent observations made by an Abuja-based lawyer who was disturbed by the number of divorce applications filed in the FCT this year alone.
"4000 divorce applications in Abuja already and the year just started,” she tweeted, with her handle @Sandraorokodo.
“Some of these marriages are less than a year old. What's really happening?"
Responding to her tweet, another Twitter user, who is also a lawyer, observed that the most common reasons for divorce are domestic violence and infidelity.
"I have handled enough divorce cases to know that 80% of this stems from domestic violence and infidelity, and that the petitioners are usually women Smiling face with smiling eyes, " the lawyer tweeted.
