For this weeks #everydayheroes we’ll be focusing on Hafsatu’s story
#jarumamagzine #arewa #sheroes My husband's dream was to have an orphanage one day. He loves kids a lot. We've been married for 6years before we adopted our little angel, Zahra. People always think the adoption idea was mine, but it was my husband's. He is a very supportive partner.

Dear Arewa Ladies,
 Today I'll be sharing some advice with the unmarried sisters. To avoid ending in tears you should consider 3 factors before getting into relationships. Although in the end everything is destined to be, we do our best to be safe than sorry So; CULTURAL DIFFERENCES/FAMILY BACKGROUND, TIMING and AGE GAP. Even though now that I think about it, the subsequent ones both depend on the first. You have to be realistic and honest with yourself. What is your culture like?

My name is Umaimah,I am an indigene of katsina state,I come from a humble family of 19 and extra family members living with us. My father was the eldest son and bread winner in his family and although we were educated, we didn't have much. I’ve always been the book worm so, when my family started making a fuss about me getting older, they would blame it on boko. They felt I made it a priority, girls married early in my family so when I was 27 and still no prospect of marriage a family interventions was arranged

My name is Maryam and this is my story of growing up in an abusive home. I am from Yola in Adamawa state but I was born and raised in Kano. Growing up, I didn’t have the ideal family. My mom met my dad when she was 18 and after what was supposed to be a relationship, things went south. They met on a Friday, on her way to school and as she told me he followed her around. Since that day, her life was never the same.

Relationships have always been complicated from the very beginning of time.

My name is Zainab Salihu, I am from Niger state but grew up in Kano, I am the first born of my parents. #DIVORCEDIARIES #Jaruma People judge you for making mistakes when they have not been in your shoes.

My mother died when giving birth to my brother when I was 5 and 2 years later my father married my mother's cousin who at the time was a divorcee with a daughter.

My name is Salisu Chiroma, I come from Jigawa and I want to share my #DivorceDiaries with you.

I met my wife hafsah after my parents insisted that I couldn't possibly travel out of the country without being married.

A thread... You see I had given up on love a long time ago since my girlfriend of four years dumped me just after our university days to get married to a "ready made",I was devasted because we had made so many plans for our future together... #DivorceDiaries.

I hardly knew him, to be honest.But it was the Fulani way; we were arranged for each other. Everyone said I was lucky #DivorceDiaries #DomesticViolenceinNN

@yashafeni

#DomesticViolenceinNN #yashafeni #DivorceDiaries I met Garba when I was a young impressionable and naïve 19 year old. For him, it was love at first sight, but for me, i realized much later that i didn’t even know what love was when I met and married him. #DomesticViolenceinNN #DivorceDiaries #yashafeni

[A thread] Aisha was my wife for 10 years. She was a powerhouse of intellect. What attracted me to her was her brilliance in class always answering questions even during group discussions. Her contributions were always brilliant and thought provoking. I was floored #DivorceDiaries
