Nigerian woman in trouble with sisters in-law over husband’s sick father
Before you read further, guys – who do you think should take care of a married man’s aged and sick father?
Should it be the married man’s wife? Or the married man’s sisters – who are in turn daughters to this sick, aged father?
Whatever your answer is, bear in mind the family you are about to read about has been torn apart because they believe it is the wife’s responsibilty!

So one of my friends in-laws asked for her head and have declared her a sworn enemy.
And what is her sin?
My friend is married to the first son, they live in the family house which her husband built, with her sick father in-law.
According to her in-laws, she ‘open eyedly’ got a paid extra hand to take care of her sick father in-law. Aru ! Abomination!
Her sister in-laws want to know why will she be wasting their brother’s money to pay someone to take care of their sick father while she is there; that what is her job? That what will she then be doing if they have to hire someone else? Hahahahahaha! I just can’t!
Even before she made this move, each time these so called in-laws come to visit their sick father from their husband houses, all they see are faults. From their father looking emaciated to whatever ridiculous observation they will come up with.
Her husband on numerous occasions have asked them to come and carry their papa and take care of him, since his wife is not doing a good job mba! No ! It is her job because she is ‘our wife’.
I have come to the realization that the major problem we have in our society is that we don’t understand the true/real/actual meaning of marriage.
That your brother decides to marry a particular girl is because he loves her, because he wants to spend the rest of his life with her, because he wants to build his own family with her.
Your brothers do not get married to bring a nanny for your father or house help for your mother.
It is not your sister in-law’s responsibility to take care of your aged parents! It is not your right ! Shouldn’t be an expectation!
If your brother’s wife decides to do it, let it be from the goodness of her heart and should be appreciated.
And please miss me with that a woman is not married to only her husband but to his entire village bullshit! Toss that manipulative statement out of the nearest window. Ero ! Asa! Big lie!
This is one of the statements the society have used to brainwash and manipulate us women for a very long time !
A woman is ONLY married to her husband. Her relationship with her in-laws or even his entire village , should be determined by how they love, accept and respect her and not by her married to their son.
It is not automatic! It’s not buy one get one free ! It is a relationship, you build it.
A woman can not be married to her husband and two of his brothers that hates her, or five of his other sisters that wants her dead!
I don’t understand how someone’s child will stay in their husband’s house and be expecting another person’s child to take care of their sick or aged parents because they are married to their brother.
For goodness sake, Go and carry your papa, mama or a get bloody paid help, and leave the ‘our wives’ alone let them marry their husbands in peace!
