After 5yrs Of Neglect,will You Tolerate A Hubby Who Returns With Mental Illness?

Culled from Vanguard Newspaper of 02/03/2010

Juliet and Charles got married five years ago. Both were blessed with two kids. But Charles left the country in search of greener pasture. While he was away for six months, Juliet was left in the dark as Charles did not leave any forwarding address . Without words from her man, Juliet gave up hope of seeing Charles. But Charles resurfaced five years later, a different man: Charles was mad!

What would she do? she wondered. Should she forgive him and perhaps, take him back as her repentant husband? Should she turn her back on him forever? After a deep thought, Juliet took him back after consulting with her family members who even assisted her to restore Charles’ sanity.

But few weeks after regaining sanity, Charles showed the beast in him, beating her black and blue, and sometimes, forcing his way into her at his own will. He even lost feeling for the children. Now, Juliet is confused. For love, should she continue to tolerate her man? Should she show him the way out? Should she run away with their kids? Should she stay in the marriage in compliance with the biblical injunction of for better, or worse?

@Op,

The man is still mad cos only a mad man beats woman. She should kick him out asap. She doesn't even need a man like him in her kids life.

if the woman's life is in danger due to the beating she is getting from the husband , she is not committing any sin by separating from the husband,

the  only time she goes against the bible is if divorces him, because the only ground for divorce is adultery

Prayers, Fasting and Vigils. . .That's the answer to the problem.

Truth be told, these would be relatively easy to do because. . .

A broken jaw will automatically lead to fasting.

Hoping it's not the present round of beating that will lead to your death. . .That's prayers.

Staying wide awake and alert so he doesn't catch you unawares. . .Vigil.

Remaining a married woman. . .Priceless.

Thank you Jeebus!!!

I think a time comes when even biblical restrictions have to be ignored and common sense has to rule. I would take my kids and run.
