“Desperate Wife” in Limbo as Six-Year Marriage in Absentia Goes Sour

Nana Afia Nyarko’s marriage in absentia has left her in a state of uncertainty as she is yet to set eyes on her husband of six years. The Kumasi-based woman entered into a marriage with a Ghanaian based in the United Kingdom with the assurance of joining him after a period. However, after six years, she still does not know what her husband truly looks like, except for some photos she has seen of him.

In an interview on Nhyira FM’s Obra Show, Nana Akua, who is 64 years old, revealed that her friend, who is also her husband’s sister, proposed the marriage on behalf of her brother. She had stayed single for 10 years after her husband passed away and her now-husband was also a divorcee, which is why he agreed to the proposal.

Nana Akua had faith in her friend and thought her brother would possess the same character, but the reverse is the case. After some conversations with the UK-based husband, he promised to take care of her and make available documents for her to travel if she helped him win the court case against his ex-wife.

Nana Akua stuck to her part of the agreement and helped him win the case, but years on, her husband is still full of excuses whenever the issue of staying together is raised. In their six years of marriage, they have never consummated, and the most she has enjoyed from her husband is their international calls.

All efforts to have him move her from her single room to a well-furnished matrimonial home have also proven futile. For a man who works with an engineering company, the aggrieved wife stated that she expected some financial commitments beyond the GH₵‎150 monthly upkeep he sends.

Due to the breach of marital agreement, Nana Akua wants to opt-out, but the ‘borga’ and his family have refused to meet her demands. The situation has left Nana Akua in a state of uncertainty, wondering what the future holds for her.

For the most part, this case highlights the potential dangers of entering into a marriage in absentia. It is crucial to exercise caution and ensure that all necessary legal arrangements have been made before proceeding with such an arrangement. It is also important to ensure that there is mutual trust and understanding between both parties before making such a life-changing decision.
