Married Ghanaian men have been advised to report their wives who wear tight jeans in bed to police if it causes them emotional abuse.

Ghana’s Central Regional Coordinator of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU), George Appiah-Sakyi, explained that “denying your spouse sex amounted to emotional abuse.”

Speaking during a meeting with leaders of churches in the Cape Coast Metropolis on terrorism and other security issues, Appiah-Sakyi, said emotional abuses were also offences punishable under the Domestic Violence Act 732 of 2007.

“If your wife wears jeans to sleep thus causing you emotional abuse its an offence and you can report her to DOVVSU,” he stated.

For the women, he said, they should report any action from their men that makes them unhappy.

“If your husbands refuse to eat your food, come home late and make you unhappy then they are causing you emotional pain and you can also report them to the police,” he said.

He noted that though these were punishable offences, citizens had no idea leading to a situation where many of them continued to perpetuate such offences.

He said a majority of the cases reported only involved physical abuses and not emotional abuses.

He described economic abuse as things one was entitled to but had been deprived of them.

“Some husbands even seize certificates of their spouses and prevent them from working,. This is economic abuse,” he added.

Appiah-Sakyi explained that anything which made one jittery, unhappy and uncomfortable in a domestic relationship constituted to abuse under the Domestic Violence Act 732 of 2007.

He noted that many people were suffering in the domestic environment and could not maximise their God-given potential besides limiting their contribution to national development.
