Foluke Daramola-Salako, well-known Nollywood actress, has revealed reasons why she remained in an abusive marriage for an extended period.
She revealed this in a recent interview with TVC, the actress, who has since remarried, revealed that she initially became aware of the abuse on her wedding night.
Despite this, she stayed in the marriage because she was concerned about what others would think, and she was grateful for the children she had from the union.
Eventually, Foluke realized that she needed to leave the marriage for her own safety. Although some people were unsupportive of her decision, she knew it was the right one.
“If I hadn’t stepped out,” she explained, “if I had died there, by now I would have been a forgotten case.” Foluke understands that not everyone will agree with her choices, but she is willing to stand by her truth rather than risk her life to prove something to the world.
“Sex to me was like punishment but my first husband wanted it everytime” Foluke Daramola
Foluke Daramola Salako recently opened up on red flags in relationships.
The wife of politician, Kayode Salako in an interview with TVC Your View revealed that she lost her virginity through rape.
As such, she developed hatred for sex and saw it as a punishment, but her first husband didn’t bother about her plight and wanted it every day.
To her, she saw it as beatings and was always scared of going home.
“I lost my virginity thru rape, so sex to me was punishment and the person I got married to wanted it every time. It felt like he was beating me”.
She added that before she married him, she saw the red flags but ignored them.
Foluke stated that her partner was rushing her into marriage and since she wanted to get married because of peer pressure, she jumped into it.
She disclosed that she got a broken sim on her wedding night as her husband asked her to cut her sim.
“When I wanted to enter my first marriage, the sign was there even though my partner was rushing me into marriage and I was like my friends were getting married. All the signs were there. Anger issues.
My first experience was on my wedding night. I got a broken sim cause I had to change to a new sim.
I saw the signs of abuse and anger but I overlooked them.
I had to stay there because of what proof would say”.
