Education of women has been recognized as a crucial panacea for development of any nation. In virtually all public interactions, which have been convened to fashion out ways and means of optimizing the country's educational development, the need to provide women with equal opportunities of acquiring education including tertiary education has been emphasized. The continued emphasis of the need for quality, sound education of women is rooted in the saying that if you educate one woman, you have educated a nation. Government's effort at ensuring sound, quality education of women is reflected partly by its provision of post-primary female institutions of learning and its award of special scholarships to female students of various institutions of learning in the country. This intervention has spurred the women to pursue education to its zenith stage, the tertiary level. In the tertiary institutions established across the country, women have been enrolled in different courses of study. While some of these women are single, others are married. Married women have been acquiring tertiary education in the country with a plethora of challenges, which significantly affect their academic performance. It has been observed that most of the challenges affecting the performance of married female students of tertiary institutions have their roots in their marriage.
