Wife battery

Was going through a blog that reminded me of a true life story I heard a while back...
Now this was before J-Lo film 'cos I was telling someone and she was like ooo that was a movie...so now before I start the story...I am specifically saying "this is real life" okay...
Story goes thus...
Dee(assumed name for the lady) is a beautiful mixed race lady.Her British mother left her in Nigeria and moved back to UK. She grew up with her Dad in Ibadan and with the help of an area aunt( a lady like a family friend that lives close by), was able to learn to cook,clean and just generally be a lady.
Years later,area aunty's nephew came back from yankee(he relocated back to naija) and developed an interest in Dee. when area aunt realised it was getting really serious, she called Dee aside and told her that her nephew was spoilt i.e doesn't know how to clean himself not to talk of cleaning up after himself!...Well you know how it is when a woman is in love,bad habits the guy oozes looks "sooo cute"(LMAO) and they ended up getting married.
Then the scales fell...but she really didn't mind the fact that he was spoilt 'cos she was domesticated anyways and she loved him...
Months/Years in to the marriage,Ajebo(spoilt brat...the guy) turned Dee to a punching bag at every given opportunity. It first started the night the guy came home late "ded" drunk and she asked him where he was coming from...the response was a slap and she suffered a black eye as a result.
The beating became very frequent and just about anything could make him boil over to get to this stage.It got so bad that on several occasion, he drove her to the hospital after a beating session for treatment and she was too ashamed to tell anyone about it thus the excuses varied from falling down the stairs to hitting her head on the door depending on the gravity of the beating.
Finally, Dee decided to "do something" about this...she secretly joined a boxing/kick boxing gym where she learnt how to fight and I mean "FIGHT"!
She avoided the husband like a plague during this training and made sure she didn't get into any trouble that will affect her flow...she still loved her husband...in spite of all the beatings.
The day finally came when she was able to use all the fighting techniques she had acquired; he went out and returned late at night...drunk as usual.
she asked him where he was coming from and before the usual slap that follows such questions landed on her face,she had him on the floor eating the sand(not that there was sand in the living room!).
He was shocked...that element of surprise was there and he was in such a bad state that she quietly picked him up and took him to the hospital for treatment(the hunter has become the prey! hee hee heee!!!).
she nursed him back to health and thereafter beat him at every given opportunity. He became calmer and started behaving himself again.although she still keeps fit,she doesn't think she'll be needing the skills anymore...

Moral of the story...learn a defence technique(God forbid you never know when you may be needing it)
and for all the wife beaters out there; practising and potential ones...especially the potential ones...beware...ladies have woken up now...no more miss nice gal...

Oh my goodness! I don't know where to start.

Just because she can defend herself doesn't mean she should stay with someone who doesn't hesitate to use her as a punching bag. This is awful! I think it's great that she learned how to defend her self, and a part of me is glad she had a chance to give him a thrashing, but what's to stop him from one day raising a weapon to her, especially now that she can beat him up real good in an unarmed fight.

If I were her I'd worry o...

And God save us from men like this!

I know this shouldn't be funny but the irony... Good for her! Glad it worked out in the end - but I do understand where goodnaijagirl is coming from too... Hmmm... xoxo
