Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s ex-wife, Anita has shared a blog post about a couple facing the “reality of a dead marriage in which the wife spends many years of endless hope in anticipation for a change and enduring a relationship that is bereft of life”

 

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s ex-wife shared:

Happy Anniversary to the best couple in the world
Wife : Hello
Husband: How are you?
Wife: I amgood. How is your day?
Husband : Good
Wife : Today is our anniversary. Happy Anniversary.
Husband : Happy anniversary.
Wife : I noticed many greetings on social media wishing us a happy anniversary. I find it confusing to read comments from your close friends saying “ best couple in the world”; it sounds like a complete joke, when they know we rarely see each other. We see each other at most ten days in a year; I can’t understand their reason for making this comment, such flattery. It is confusing to me.
Husband : Well, at least they sent their greetings.
Wife : Their greetings are on social media, no contact by text or by email.
Husband : Silence
Wife : Hello
Husband : Yes
Wife : I sometimes wonder if we are married. There is nothing more to this relationship to indicate we are married apart from a ring on my finger; the ring is another story and our pictures are interjected because we are rarely together to take a proper picture. I feel sad that we are not together.
Husband : Look, I have told you over and over again that we cannot live in the same country because we are very busy and one country is too small for both of us. I expect you should be able to figure that out.
Wife : One country is too small for us?
Husband : Yes and you keep coming back to ask the same question.
Wife : Okay. Since you don’t often call either, please call the children, at least once a month. They go on for months without speaking with you. I noticed they don’t seem to care anymore.
Husband : Okay
Wife : That is about all.
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Have a beautiful day.
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Bye
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Hello
Husband : Silence (Goes off the Phone)
Wife : Okay
Facing the reality of a dead marriage, where a spouse spends many years of endless hope in anticipation for a change, enduring a relationship that is bereft of life. Believe it or not, this was somebody’s experience and is another person’s state of affair.
There is so much in life to be enjoyed.
