- Krist, a Ghanaian man living in the UK, has opened up about his failed marriage and working life
- He sat for an interview with SVTV Africa's DJ Nyaami and discussed how he overcame abuse from his estranged partner before their divorce
- YEN.com.gh reached out to US professional intimacy coach Erica Daniel about how the ex-couple can manage the disappointment
A UK-based Ghanaian man, Krist, has recalled how he overcame tribulations and marital problems when he relocated from Ghana to the European country.
Speaking to DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, he revealed that his ex-wife physically abused him during their marriage and threw him out of their home before finally divorcing him.
Krist explained that he moved to the UK with the support of his ex-wife when his business collapsed in Ghana, but the marriage fell apart because of her quick-tempered behaviour.
"My ex-wife was quick-tempered. She attacked me outside once after roughly a month in the UK. My wife is petite, but she smacked me twice.
''I encouraged her to calm down since she was upset with her mother. She chastised me for failing to defend her. After that encounter, I had four visions of our divorce," he said on SVTV Africa.
YEN.com.gh spoke with Erica Daniel, a professional intimacy coach from the United States, on how the ex-couple might manage their disappointment.
''When a couple divorces, there might be resentment and disappointment, especially if you have a loving relationship with someone. As a result, people must appreciate and be honest about their emotions.
''They should take advantage of whatever is going on inside them to decrease their hold on them. They should also receive the necessary assistance in transitioning from emotions that control them to emotions that control them. These would assist them in dealing with disappointment and other difficulties,'' Daniel told YEN.com.gh.
