Speaking to Paul Anumah Kodia, she said, she does not want to be one of those women who will stay in a marriage for the sake of their child.

“I am a Muslim woman, independent and educated who got married to someone who was of a different religion and wanted to convert. In the process of marriage, we realized that if you marry someone who is not of the same intellectual capacity as you, they will always be a difference in terms of thoughts, view and opinion” she said.

“At that point in time in my marriage, I was asked to abort the pregnancy but thanks to my Gynaecologist who advised me to keep my daughter.
That period of my life was quite challenging, and I asked myself if the baby coming is to replace my father who was to pass away but Thanks be to God he did not die”.
She concluded by saying that some men it challenging been married to women who are Educated Independent and hardworking but they should realise that they are in this together.
