Why I remained in an abusive marriage despite being abused on my wedding night — Foluke Daramola

Foluke Daramola-Salako, a Nollywood actress, talks about why she chose to stay in her abusive marriage.

During a recent interview with TVC, the actress, who is currently remarried, revealed that she saw the warning signs but was unable to leave.

Foluke Daramola added that she was abused even on the night of her wedding.

Despite her ex-husband’s constant abuse, the mother of two stayed in the marriage for four years. When questioned, she admitted to being afraid of being criticized.

“My first marriage, on the night of my wedding was when I noticed abuse. But because of what people will say… And God has already orchestrated it because my wonderful kids are from the marriage.

“When I finally decided to step out [of the marriage], people did not understand why I stepped out. But I understood that I needed to go. A lot of people did not receive it well, but if I hadn’t stepped out, if I had died there, by now I would have been a forgotten case.

“So, it is better for people not to accept my reality or my truth but I accept my own truth than for me to lose my life in the process of trying to prove to the world what I’m going through.”
