• And when the bed of roses turns toxic, many have chosen to walk out.
  • There are men who are victims of emotional or physical abuse.

"Until death do us part!" is the vow that lovers take during their wedding day.

However, many relationships have not waited for the grave to break.

Instead, they have ended because of emotional and physical abuse.

On many occasions, women are the ones who suffer from abuse in relationships. 

This does not dispute the fact that there are men who are victims of emotional or physical abuse in their relationships/marriages. 

And when the bed of roses turns toxic, many have chosen to walk out;

The former news anchor's first marriage was an abusive one and she managed to walk out when her daughter was 3 years old. 

One day, she was left with marks on her face just before appearing on TV, that's when she reached her limits. 

“I decided to move on for my baby and myself. At least I was financially stable when I walked out. Dependence is what traps many women in abusive relationships."

The TV siren's marriage to Dennis Okari did not last a year over what Kyallo's family termed as abuse. 

After it ended, Betty's brother said;

“Women go through so much pain and society ignores this. Pain may come from an unappreciative family in law, dishonest partner, and spousal abuse."
