A Nigerian guy has divorced his 17-year-old wife only eight months after they were married.
The young couple’s wedding, which was held some months ago, sent social media into a frenzy owing to their ages.
Sharing a video from his traditional wedding on TikTok, the Mbaise native from Imo state lamented that it is better to be single than married to his estranged wife.
“It is better to be single than to be with someone like her. So that is why I came out to let everyone know we are no longer together. Thanks for the advice,” he wrote on the clip.
He described his wedding day as the saddest day of his life.
“I thought my wedding day is going to be the happiest day of my life. It turned out to be the saddest day of my life.”
In another clip, he explained that he tried dialoguing with his ex-wife severally, but she wouldn’t listen.
“Marrying a 17-year-old girl is the worst mistake I ever made. I wish her best of luck,” he wrote on the clip.

“You as the husband can help her not by divorcing your wife. This is a spiritual battle we are talking about here not a physical stuff.”

“My dear when you divorce her is not our problems but don’t insult her she’s not good for you but she can be good for another man simple.”
The 20-year-old, in a TikTok video, lamented that they have not had sexual intercourse since becoming a couple. He said that she keeps coming up with excuses each time he makes advances at her in that regard.
The lad, who is an only son, admitted his inability to cheat due to his love for her and asked netizens for advice on what to do. The young man confirmed that he is indeed married to a 17-year-old and wasn’t chasing clout with his video.
