Being A Ghanaian Footballer’s Wife is Deeply Pathetic | Five Footballers’ Wives & One Ex Speak Of their Ordeals

First of all, before you ask the most reasonable question; why are they still married to these douche bags called men, let me mentioned that, that’s the exact question I kept pushing down the throats of these women I spoke to—and none of them could give me a tangible reason as to why any sane woman would endure the level of nonsense, violation, disrespect and humiliation that have become part of their lives.
Beyond the recent John Paintsil and wife’s case, we’ve been witnesses to various shocking scandals involving Ghanaian footballers and their wives.
How can anyone forget the infamous Afriyie Acquah and Amanda unending issues, Sulley Muntari and Menaye Donkor’s near marriage breakup, John Mensah and wife’s scandalous breakup, Emmanuel Duah and Lawrencie’s issues, and the Odartey Lamptey and wife’s shocking children DNA public judging.
If you ever want to back up the adage “not all that glitters is gold” with a real life example, then just step into the backyard of the various Ghanaian footballers’ wives—most of them come off as happy and rich when from what GhanaCelebrities.Com has gathered, they have become punching bags of their husbands and do not even get enough sex in their marriages, because the men are chasing every thing wearing a skirt out there.
After speaking to 5 current wives of Ghanaian footballers and an Ex of another, I’ve concluded that, marrying a Ghanaian footballer is perhaps as dangerous as having been married off to Joffrey Baratheon and being called the Queen of King’s Landing.
It’s pathetic; what some of these women are going through is beyond humiliation and probably, they are hanging in there because of the financial gain, which sometimes do not even flow as most would expect.
1. Husbands Sleeping With Every Woman Out There:
All the five footballers’ wives plus the one divorcee I spoke to shared a common denominator in their stories: that’s, the men they call their husbands have no respect for their marriages and proudly sleep with countless women, and even have children with some of these mistresses.
One said; “my husband has children with 3 different women that I know of, some even say there is a 4th woman he has a child with but he keeps denying it. For the other 3 women, I know them and I know the children.”
Can you imagine being still married to a man that has gone out there behind you to have children with as much as three other women? What would glue any reasonable woman to this sort of despicable marriage?
Another, the divorcee said, “my husband just was not sleeping with every woman and having children with them, he even had a child with my own best friend and I could not do anything about it.”
She added; “the situation is so bad in most footballers’ marriages such that as I talk to you now, the wife of a certain Black Stars former captain has turned to alcoholism because of how pitiful her marriage has become.”

  1. i know there is no such thing about rosey relationship…but i really agree on nr3…thats something i have realised lately, that some african men who are rich and also famous (doesnt have to be a celebrity) think they can treat people anyhow it suits them. I wont say all but its very hard to be with some ghanaian guys…especially those who grew up home with that mentality that a woman is worth nothing…that a woman is just meant to be there to as baby machine maker…but these men forgets that a wife or woman is supposed to be their supoort system and also the men are supposed to be the strong man and respect them…a woman that respects a woman will not lift a finger on her…as for Bukom Banku he needs strong therapeutic sessions…with all that being said marriage requires lots of work…why did they marry these men in the first place

    1. They marry them for the money and men arenot stupid they know that so they don’t give a hoot about them

      1. My dear say it again, i’m not defending footballers but to say the truth those women should only blame themselves period.Let say the truth would they accept to stay with the footballers if they were poor?because he ‘s a footballer you don’t reason anymore,you don’t think anymore,you don’t even care to ask God if the man is the one you were meant to marry,and i know that most of them will not seek advice from God because he will tell them “this man is not yours”.No marriage is perfect but for God sake some are just not meant to be period stop following men because of money trust God for your future and everything will be alright. What is yours will never burn your feets and hands.

  2. I don’t know why these women follow these uneducated men who do not have any respect for them or the relationship. Men in general will not respect you if they don’t regard you as valuable to their well being. These women mostly do not work, they sit home and paint nails and comment on social media 24/7. And they want to be respected?
    Also, they cannot leave because of MONEY. They are in there for the money so no matter how many times they are beaten or cheated on, they will stay. It is stupid. Tears came down reading this.

  3. Wow, this is pitiful, I think everyone knows that they cheat and that is disgusting in itself but the other stuff is even more dreadful and horrible but tbh the women also have to be questioned on why they put up with it and if it’s because of money and fame then it’s their fault.

  4. My opinion is that, these women obviously do not have a life on their own and not willing to get one either. They are so bent on having a cash cow to fund their flamboyant lifestyles etc thereby depending on these jerks and consequently availing themselves to all sort of ill-treatments and disrespect. Their families also endorse these facade of a marriage. “As the saying goes, as you lay your bed so shall you lie on it”. And to the perpetrators I leave them with this wise saying “People pay for what they do, and still more, for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it simply: by the lives they lead”.
