A legally married man has ran away from his matrimonial home because his wife continuously beats him.
Marriage, a union between two compatible adults, which is to be enjoyed by both parties is a hell for Smith (not his real name).
A lawyer at the Legal Aid Commission – Ghana, Mrs Ita Tetteh, disclosed this unfortunate incident on ‘My Lawyer, My Counselor’ on TV XYZ on Sunday night.
Lawyer Tetteh was sharing with the audience some of the cases that are brought before them at the Legal Aid office and added that about 80% of the cases are marriage-related issues.
She said the man reported the case at Legal Aid to seek help to divorce his violent wife.
“The man said we should annul the marriage else his wife will kill him through the numerous beatings, and we were surprised to hear that his wife beats him upon the least provocation,” she added.
Mrs Tetteh revealed that Legal Aid Commission offers free legal services to the citizenry and called on the vulnerable in society to seek help from the commission.
My Lawyer, My Counselor is hosted by Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman and shown on TV XYZ at 7PM every Sunday.
