Last week, I got talking to a lady who recently got a job in a location not too far from where she lived, not long after resuming at the new place, she moved house to an area very far from where she was before. I got curious and asked why she had to move house, also considering the fact that her salary could not sustain the fare to her new ‘home’. She first told me she just felt like moving house. It was after I asked if she was under any kind of pressure that she confessed that her brother-in-law daily disturbed her for sex, knocked on her room door, called her phone so she could allow him into her room every night. She hoped it would stop, or at least, her sister would notice; but when nothing like that happened, she had to choose to either bow to pressure or move out. She chose the latter.
I then began to think about those ladies who have no other place to move to, and have to either keep resisting the pressure for as long as it takes or succumb to it. Unfortunately, succumbing to the pressure, no matter how much it is, always amounts to a loss more for the woman.
I sure have heard so many cases like this over and over again; but I feel compelled to write about it this time. Is it a crime to stay with your sister while you try to get a footing in life? Why would a man go for his wife’s sister? What’s the compelling force behind it? Is it this same sex drive or a temporary loss of reason? For the lady faced with this challenge, what do you think she should do? Do you think she should inform her sister after she must have left the house? Let’s have your thoughts…..
Have a great week everyone!
