“I got married to my friend but after we got married, we stopped being friends” – Nigerian man shares
A Nigerian man has taken to social media to narrate how his marriage almost fell apart shortly after getting married to his wife.
The young man simply identified as Chisom in a Twitter thread, admitted that he married his best friend, but soon after their nuptials, things started to go south between them. His wife, who used to be his closest friend, seized being his friend.
According to him, his change in attitude almost ruined their union until they sought the help from a marriage counselor who assisted them in restoring peace in their home.
Sharing his experience on Twitter, he wrote,
“I got married to my friend but after we got married, we stopped being friends…My wife is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Apart from sharing the same value system, she understands herself and me a lot! But, no matter how good you and your spouse are, there are principles that when disobeyed, your marriage will be a mess.
“My wife is the kind of person that confronts someone when they do something she doesn’t like. She doesn’t pretend. On the other hand, I can swallow stuff because ‘I don’t like wahala/disagreements’. Over the years, even before we got married, when my wife does something I don’t like, I often didn’t talk about it because I wasn’t in the mood for an argument. Unknown to me, the tiny hurts I thought I let go of were piling up somewhere in my heart and before I knew it, I became resentful toward her.”
