Compared to lots of marriages in the West like US or UK, married couples in Nigeria tend to spend most of their lives together and I have come to know that divorce is rare despite the high level of poverty and domestic abuse. What makes married couples in Africa, particularly among Nigerians stay together for a long time?

I think it is because of the nuclear family which you get married into. Unlike in western societies, couples get to marry only themselves but in Nigeria you will be married into families and every family member needs to be responsible for you and you likewise for them. People get to intervene when you are having problems with your wife or husband. They help in making your married life last longer so it goes beyond just the 2 persons who are married.
