Marriage Battles is a drama series which revolves around a newly-wed couple, Kenny and Omolola from the Western part of Nigeria who was finding it difficult to agree on a particular subject matter, in this case, Fasting and Sex in marriage. While Omolola religiously believes that it is wrong to be fasting and at the same time continues with the sexual activities between married couples, Kenny thinks otherwise and strongly so.
Immediately after their wedding, it was the beginning of the year and a 100 day fast was declared by the church and Omolola participated fully in the fast without the consent of her husband Kenny, and so denying him his marital rights. Her action was firmly supported by her Pastor’s wife who insisted that she must ensure that she completes the fast without consenting to her husband’s demand. This happened without the Pastor’s knowledge. Omolola completed the fast with encouragement from Pastor Mrs Dele but she was raped by some Armed Robbers a few days after the fast and that was the beginning of the woes that befell her marriage.
Marriage Battles addresses serious controversial issues within the institution of marriage and especially between couples. It exposes some of the issues in homes and proffering scripturally based solutions to them.
