A classmate and friend of mine who has become a successful business man in Lagos was to get married to this girl that claimed to love him very much. He has paid the bride price, negotiated and cleared all protocols with the family of the girl. In fact, he is just waiting for this Xmas to complete the wedding and traditional marriage ceremonies. However, the girl in question who happens to base in the village has been visiting on regular basis, her future aged mother in-law to see how she was doing and take care of her to the wish of the intended husband. Each time the girl visited, the mother in-law would arrange for her to pass the night with the younger brother of the husband in his own room. This, the old woman does because she believed she would be more comfortable with him than putting up with her in her own little local hut. She also did that having nothing silly in mind to go wrong between the supposed in-laws. But to her greatest surprise and ignorance, they started sleeping with each other right under her nose. The act lingered even as the girl began to frequent her visit often than she used to. On the process, she became pregnant (i.e. for the younger brother of her husband). When the aged woman noticed the development with the secrete eyes of the old age, she excitedly called the ‘to-be’ husband to come home and finalize the marriage rites, considering the new condition of his wife, not knowing the pregnancy is not his but of the younger brother. When my friend arrived home, his mother congratulated him, thanking God for the new baby that is on the way to arrive. But she received the greatest shock when my friend denied having slept with the girl at all, not even when they were together during the marriage negotiations. The girl after receiving intense pressure from her own people confirmed the claims of the supposed husband. She went ahead to confess it was her brother in-law who owns the pregnancy, blaming also the mother in-law for indirectly engaging her emotionally with the traitor. Now, the problem that my friend is facing is that he has made up his mind to stop the marriage, judging by the humiliation his wife to be and his younger brother has brought him. But the two families are begging for forgiveness including the girl, asking him to re-consider and save the image of the families which are at stake. However, my friend has told me that he rather support his younger bother (both financially and otherwise) to get married to the girl, than get himself entangled in a marriage that will bring him nothing but unhappy and regrettable life. Please guys, if you are in this guy’s shoes, what would you do? Do you think his proposed actions are in order? Should he forgive the girl, and go ahead with the marriage in order that the public do not get to know what has happened? If he marries the girl, isn’t his brother going to come back for his baby someday? Puzzling issues that need your immediate heart-healing solutions to conquer.
