Abstract:This paper examines issues of divorce as they are presented in Matthew 5:32 and contemporary divorce practices among the Urhobo of the western Niger delta, Nigeria. Interviews conducted with Urhobo people in 2004 reveal many reasons for divorce, including spirit possession (mostly in women), infidelity, and, particularly, abuse of husbands by their wives. Ref.
