Inter-familial cheating

04 October 2016, 07:38Shakila Alivitsa

Abuja - I don’t think that is what it is called but what do you call it when you find out the people closest to you are the one’s betraying your marriage for you?

For example: when you find out your sister has been sleeping with your husband. Or your wife has been cheating with your brother. Or it is a cousin… just a close family relation.

I have two sisters. One, I do not see doing some things but the other one I totally can. Let me give you a bit of a small background as to why I think this way. This sister is the one that gives a new meaning to sibling rivalry. She broke up with a boyfriend because she did not feel he does for her as much as mine does for me. The next one I got around her; she flirted to a very dangerous extent. You know there is harmless flirting, then there is dangerous flirting- she was the latter which gave me a window into her mind.

There are some people who never understand why a certain family member no matter how dire their straits they will not be invited to stay overnight. Any other person, this woman will not have a problem with; they can even stay a week. But there is this one that when it gets to 4pm, you see them being asked where they are spending the night.

It is because that person saw the writing on the wall a long time ago.

We would all love to have family members we got along with, did not have to have an issue with and we could all just live and love. Who would not love to have sleep overs with their sisters?

It is very hurtful and shameful for a person when the person that is closest to you is the one that easily betrays you. 1. You can either speak about it or 2. You keep your mouth shut so as not to look bad 3. When nobody understands and everybody is telling you to get over it and forgive them- How?

This is why some people take very serious measure when a relationship or the person they are married to is very important to them. No offense, when you see where they are coming from.

They will not want this sister, brother, cousin, relation… near their spouse because as they say; prevention has always been better than cure.

You will wonder why this older sister living in town will not let her younger sister come and stay with her while she looks for a job. People are not stupid; no one wants to co-wife with someone that carries some issues with them from childhood. Co-wife for any simple thing for that matter. Can you imagine your face when your younger sister comes and tells you your husband is responsible for her pregnancy? Where will you even start, where will you go with that? What if she is proud of herself and does not mind being wife number two?

Don’t judge someone when you see them trying to protect their spouse, you do not know the back story between some family and some relationships. So when you see someone try to find accommodation for their relation yet they have a 5 bedroom house that has three free, it is not in your place to talk- keep quiet!
