i've read so many tales, witnessed so many cases, where wives are always at the recieving end of insults, curses, and abuses anytime their husbands fail at their endeavours in life. it's so common to hear the husbands' family members turning against these poor women, even when it is glaring that the husbands are at fault, not the wives. why is this so?
I had a friend(may his soul rest in peace) who died earlier this year due to colon cancer. he had a very young wife(23 years) old and they had been married for just over 2 years b4 he died. his family members refused to allow her to attend the funeral, calling her a witch, saying that ever since he met her and married her, his problems had started. and everyone saw how she was running from pillar to post trying to save her hubby. am sure if it were another lady, she would have left him a looong time ago. i read several stories too about wives being tormented by their husbands families. (most recent one in nigerian tribune) the husband lost his job in lagos, relied on the wife for finances, later got a job in abuja, and started an affair with another woman there. when the authentic wife came over unannounced, he got angry and told her to go back to lagos. she was even contemplating on moviung to abuja but she later didn't. along the line the husband was duped of a large sum of money he stole from his company by this woman he was having an affair with, and he was fired. he returned to lagos with his tail between his legs,, and still the wife took him back. later his mum came over and started saying the wife was the cause of his woes, and stupidly he agreed. they took her to a native doctor to swear she wasn't the one, but she just didn't do it. he later left the house, saying he can't live with her anymore.
there are so many tales like this. i keep wondering why such things happen to the wives. atimes it's true, atimes it isnt. but why? my fiancee has been telling me that once we get married, she doesn't want anyone going around telling everyone that ever since she came into the family, i have changed, but i tell her that once that time comes, i'll have to re-prioritize, cos she will then become my number one priority, my wife, my family, and whoever doesn't seem happy about that shld take a hike.
what are u peeps views on this?
