Since it is my right to associate, can I flee from a marriage where my life is in danger?

The scope of your right of freedom of association include your choice whether to associate or not. Many spouses have lost their lives as a result of not fleeing from homes that posed serious dangers to their existence.

In a popular case of Salisu v. Lawa[1], an order of court asking a wife to return to her matrimonial home was held unconstitutional in the light of this right.
