“I’ve been through a lot in my life, faced a lot of challenges but this is one topic I’ve tried so hard to avoid and have been waiting for the right time but I have come to a resolve that there’s really no right time because every second of the day, lives are being lost due to domestic violence.

She also gave some marital advice; “I can imagine her state of mind and what she went through. I for one would have said this same prayers 6 years ago with so much hate in my heart and can count many others who will equally be saying same prayers. But grace, mercy and forgiveness surpass the pain of wickedness. I succumbed to God’s grace and strength.

“May God touch every soul going through pain, give them the grace to forgive and wish them well. Forgiveness is not for the other person, but rather for your own peace of mind and sanity. May God heal us all.”

  1. Mercy Aigbe tops list of Nigerian Actresses whose marriage crashed OVER ADULTERY not domestic violence stop deceiving us with make up story’s no man will beat such a beautiful lady like this? If something is not wrong n do u know the kind of pains the man has been through just to keep such a beautiful woman? My brother let’s speak the raw truth n help people’s

    • How do you know? What stupid raw truth. Come to think of it, if adultery be the case, what would you have advised? So you will tell Lanre Gentry to kill her abi? You are a wicked person to write this rubbish. May your sisters face domestic violence. Let’s see If you will be quiet. Aproko man. Isy!….

  2. Congratulations to them, when are they going to receive their awards?…Yeyebrieties.
    Most of these ladies are lesbians in disguise,therefore no affection or feelings for their husband and the other way also. That’s part of the demand from the industry for you to be and remain famous.

    In the near future, women will only be looking for sperm donors and not husbands while men will be looking for surrogate mothers not wife, so sad,but it’s gona happen.

  3. Life n our children also cos no mother would love see her daughter parking her out from the husbands house every one should advise them to love themselves again n leave whatsoever that went wrong thanks

  4. If you or your family member have not experienced it you won’t know how it fees. I was once a victim too for 8 good years I was in a marriage where my husband and I showered each other with love until jealous members of his family came between us simply because I questioned house helps exposing their bodies to the glare of my husband that was how the beating for me starts. It’s not everything that has to do with adultery. So please if you don’t know what comment to give to issues just stroll pass like the HUNTER.

  5. I agree with Smith that Mercy Aigbe’s marriage crashed over Adultery. Many women as beautiful as Mercy or more beautiful are very arrogant and have no respect for anybody because they know there is always a man out there to want her. One thing they fail to realize is that beauty does not last that long. As the saying goes “THE BEAUTY OF A WOMAN IS LIKE THE EARLY MORNING FLOWER THAT FADES WITH SUNSET”. Those who long for them and cause them not to respect their marriage only want them for sex and nothing more. And when one goes there he tells the others and this causes them to look down on her husband.

  6. In the case of Mercy, Lanre went to far with the beating. It is obvious he wanted to kill her judging from her battered face. Lanre knew that he married a beautiful woman and that roving eyes of men will always find her. It appears that Lanre has no trust his wife or what did Mercy do to make her husband not to have trust in her? Or is Lanre insecure? what caused the breakdown of Marcy’s first marriage, insecurity too? There is a limit to which you lay your hands on any woman let alone your wife especially if she has a child or children for you. When you raise your hands up to beat her and remember your children, you should have a rethink. Always have in mind that women have bullet and acidic tongue and when they unleash it on you, you can do the unthinkable. It is their nature. If you remember this, you will not get into trouble.
