My Husband Called Me a Rejected Stone, I Attempted Suicide - Caller

"Love is not stupid and there is no justification to subject love to abuse." These were the words of Sunny Side Show Host Joyce Onyemuwa to a woman (caller) who said her husband subjects her to abuse in their marriage.

The caller, clearly distraught, explained to Joyce why she almost took her own life because of her husband's behaviour.

She said, "My husband told me I was a rejected stone, he had mercy on me and married me." 

"I attempted suicide twice, I almost drank sniper since I run a grocery shop, I don't know what to do," she cried.

Callers who phoned in to proffer solutions had different views on the matter. While some called for calm and patience, backed with prayers, others loudly called for an end to the union.
