Why are women encouraged with stories of bad marriages?

Why is it that when Nigerian women are being encouraged to stay with bad husbands and irresponsible fathers, they are told harrowing stories of women who endured years of abuse?

They are reminded of different women who dressed beds for their husbands and their many side chicks. People think this is normal.

They are told stories of women are now ‘enjoying’ their marriages after suffering emotional, psychological and physical abuse at the hands of men who vowed to love and cherish them for life.

They are told stories of women who welcomed their prodigal husbands back home years after these men disappear with side chicks. This one annoys me.
