The purpose of marriage many don’t still know, is not all about beauty and a man showing his muscles. Men are to act as counsellors to their wives at home and everywhere, whiles wife’s are to act as pillars for their children and other single women to look up to before joining the wedding bells association. What started to be a loving marriage, is on the brick of collapsing after Francis Aban 25, decided to show his prowess skills on the faces of his newly wedded wife. The wife happens to be the daughter of a powerful woman.
It is not compulsory for a woman to cook in the house said Madam Efua, the mother to the bride Lilly. Lilian as written Lilly and affectionately called by her friends and family is a twenty-four year old woman who got herself messed up with marriage proposals. She is a young woman doing her national service at the regional coordinating council of the Bono East whiles Francis Aban is a mechanical engineer who works with an auto fitting shop due to unemployment into a sector he wants.
Aban and Lily met when Lily was transferred to the Bono East to do her national service. Their encounter made Lily took to labour and as Lily didn’t want her friends to know about her situation, her family forced her to either marry or leave the country. At 24, she had nothing to hold on for foreign travels so she accepted to marry Francis. It wasn’t easy as Francis too didn’t have much on him since he is temporary working with a fitting shop.
Both families helped the young couples and they were able to make the financial burden a past story. Lily’s parent paid for the house they are living in with an assurance the couple will come and pay the money back when two of them start working full or Francis does. The little they got from the donation at their wedding was given to Francis to start a personal business with since he is well practical with engineering machines. Lily’s parents are rich people and lives a rich life so none of their children knows how to cook.
Lily according to her mother Efua, has never touch cooking stove before and that is why she messed up with the food. Francis told his newly wedded wife to prepare him something to eat and according to Francis, Lily brought this. Francis couldn’t control his temper and went straight attacking his wife like a bull dog on hunt. Nobody knew what was wrong with him but he still did that. Lily has been admitted to the Sunyani Government Hospital whiles Francis has been handed to the police to prepare him before court for abusing Lily, the young wife.
According to Lily’s mother, even if she destroyed a whole cow, that doesn’t mean he should touch my daughter and abuse her like that. We thought he was a gentleman and supported him by paying for most of the wedding and buying them a house of their own and even gave him something to start business with, if the bride’s family was wicked, could we have given you all this, said Madam Efua, Lily’s mother.
Francis Aban’s family has been pushing Lily’s family to allow the case to be settled in the house but the woman especially, Lily’s mother Efua thinks Francis has crossed the line when he touched her daughter and needs to be thought a lesson. Francis if arranged before a jury on Monday 16 November, is likely to face remand before the case is even heard said Lawyer Apaw the prosecuting lawyer madam Efua hired for the case.
