Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke has berated single mothers who keep their children away from their fathers after their failed marriage.
Gideon, who just parted ways with his wife and mother of his two sons, said it was only after his divorce that he discovered that many divorced men are being punished by their ex-wives who prevent them from seeing their children.
He advised such mothers to be compassionate because it is no longer about them but about their children, whom they are blocking from building a relationship with their fathers.
Read his post below,
“It’s on the announcement of My Seperation/ Divorce that I realized that so many men are going through and enduring a litany of ills as an offshoot of a failed marriage, leaving the the kids in tow, as Victims.
My DM has messages to boot.
But I NEED to ask…
What Therapy is reserved or advised for Men who find themselves backed up in this corner?
Is speaking up a “shame thing”?
Does WORK or the advice of going back to
WORK really douse the pain?
Kids are definitely a “mumu button” to the Man who has NOT abandoned his kids and his responsibilities to them. Suddenly all your are good enough for, is FEES. But your seeds still lack their vitamin DADDY! DAMN !!!
Be HUMANE! Be HUMANE !! Be HUMANE !!!”
“Dear single Mother,
You didn’t pluck those kids from the trees.
You didn’t buy them off the shelves at
Shoprite. It took 2 of you, in love, to have the privilege of the legacy of Kids, in your life.
People go a whole lifetime without this blessings you have on your laps. They are a gift from God. Being an ONLY child myself…
I can tell U what women go through to find this gift… for free…by God’s grace.
Why you con Dey use this same gift take Dey punish another Man. Or so you thought you were punishing Him. But no! It’s the KIDS
Get out of the Way. You’re in the way of Your kids emotional balance. You’re in the way!”
