A sister's story will Amaze you

So, early this morning a friend wrote:

A man had a fatal accident and his wife who is a trader at Enugu main market used up all the money she had and even borrowed to make sure her husband recovers.   Husband's account couldn't be accessed because husband neither uses ATM nor cheques.  He does all his transactions across the counter no matter what.   He was in coma and everyone advised her to save him first before talking money. 

Husband was discharged and fully recovered. He organised a big party to celebrate his recovery.  He resumed his own business and has refused to support wife's business.  A business she practically closed down to get him out of hospital bed.  A business she was feeding the kids and picking all the bills for about 3month with hope that when husband recovers,  he will do the needful.   Husband feels wife Should stay at home and take care of the kids rather than having a source of income.. Source of income that kept him alive when everyone said sorry to him and went back to their homes.  

Is this not wickedness?  Is this not witchcraft?  Is this not man in humanity against another?  Will I call it greed? 

Who bites the finger that fed him?  Who turns his back against the only person that stood by you at your challenging period? 

Should women hoard money rather than helping their spouse?  Should she  have sat and watch him die?  Should she sit around and do absolutely nothing? 

Why is the world becoming so wicked and filled with heartless people.  

Woman,  take heart.  That is all I can say to you.  I am sure it is clear to you that you are married to.

Hi Edith,
Its sad this is what we see every day in our society. Why should men be intimidated by their own wives? Well your thought provoking questions answered them all.
Thanks for speaking up.
Regards

Hi Edith,

Oh, this is sad. They need to have community meetings educating men and women about how it benefits everyone when women can generate income as well. Plus, I'm concerned what this teaches their children and what patterns they perpetuate with their own families if this is the model they are taught. I hope the cycle gets broken for them, and that she is able to have a thriving business. Perhaps that's unrealistic but it could happen.

Hope you and your son are doing well, dear:-)

Hello my dear sister Jill, yes we are well. Yes the chain will be broken because women are becoming more informed
