Ben Pol filing for divorce from Anerlisa Muigai surprises no one

Ben Pol and Anerlisa Muigai look like they are headed towards being a statistic of just how flighty modern day marriages have become or maybe because they haven’t been married for more than a year, the end of their marriage will be an annulment.

Ben Pol allegedly files divorce from Anerlisa Muigai barely a year after their wedding

Ben Pol and Anerlisa Muigai have been the fodder of gossip for quite a while as she did the rubbish that modern women do that is childish: deleting photos of her husband whenever they fight and constantly unfollowing him.

Anerlisa Muigai was quick to let us know alot of men were thirsting after her when her marriage to Ben Pol was first rumoured to be on the rocks

Often, this is how modern women let us all know that she is upset at her husband rather than deal with everything in-house. And given that Ben Pol is a high-value male with status, wealth and good looks, he was never going to the one to vumilia the nonsense.

And now the chicken have come home to roost but the question I want to ask is; who exactly is surprised by the outcome of their marriage? Who can say they were blindsided by the news that Ben Pol filed for divorce? I don’t think this has even caught Anerlisa Muigai by surprise.

Anerlisa seemed unaware that her husband wanted to convert to Islam

You see, when we take a look at their relationship from the outside looking in, what we see is a woman who had refused to follow her husband’s frame. I get it, she is an heiress to the Keroche Industry business, but when it comes to the household, she showed an unwillingness to fall into his frame. That is why her social media remained unchanged other than a few cosmetic things.

Then when he went to Saudi Arabia, Anerlisa Muigai seemed as shocked as we were to learn Ben Pol, her husband, had converted to Islam. And she did nothing to try and meet him halfway by trying to immerse herself into that culture. You see, it makes sense that she, having been raised a Christian, probably wouldn’t want to change her religion but like with all other religions, there is a culture that comes along with the faith. She did not immerse herself into the culture.

You see, another major hurdle that we do not want to discuss just yet is the fact that Anerlisa Muigai came from Nairobi Kenya. A decadent city coiffed in pretences of being liberal. She, probably, like most girls raised in Nairobi, did not know what marriage entailed. And Ben Pol comes from Dar Es Salaam (or is it Dodoma?) where they have an entirely different mindset towards marriage.

Anerlisa Muigai has had a plethora of relationships including one rumoured dalliance with a female who goes by the name of Natasha Johnson and all her relationships ended in animosity. That is a precursor to what she knows about maintaining relationships. Ben Pol might eventually be convinced to take back his wife and they might try their hand at fixing their issues but I wouldn’t advise him to waste his energy.
