“It is hard to accept but the fact is that the number of gay and bisexual men is increasing in the country and most of this will only be exposed when those with handsome faces and shapely bodies are forced into marriage by their families.”

“Most of the reported cases were wives complaining that they had not been intimate at all since the 1st day of marriage and that the cold attitude of the husband who refused to be intimate with them raising suspicions,” the news portal said.

The article went viral on social media with some criticising these gay men, and the rest justified their actions.

Several netizens said that if these men know they are gay, they shouldn’t have married a woman in the first place.

“If you know that you’re gay then don’t get married. You’re just causing problems,” a netizen said.

Another netizen called out to the homosexual men to be honest and not manipulate people. “You’re really getting married just to prove that you’re ‘normal’. This is very cruel to do it to someone’s daughter.”

On the other hand, some defended the gay husbands and said that they are receiving a lot a pressure from the society to get married and have a child, especially when they are doing well in their career and business. “They want a legacy and an heir for all of their hard work,” a netizen shared.

Another netizen pointed out that this would not have happened if it weren’t compulsory for heterosexuality and the pressure from society and families for one to get married. “As well as the belief that getting married would ‘cure’ gay/lesbian people.”

“A substantial amount are forced into marriages by their family and society. So maybe before we start pointing a finger, we can address the main issue, which is homophobia,” said one user.
