Years ago, when I just got married, I and my husband had some of our siblings living with us because both of us first born from our parents. We wanted to help our younger ones staying with us at the time.
Because we were living in a 3 bedroom apartment, I had my aunty who was helping me with our small children staying in one room with my husband’s younger brothers. One of the brothers was looking for a job at the time while the other one was in school. It was not a comfortable living arrangement but that was the best we could afford because our children were in one room and myself and hubby were in the master bedroom.
Years later, my husband’s brother got a job and he moved out of our home. Not long after, he brought someone he wanted to marry. A lovely girl and we all accepted her. But after marriage, it seemed like this guy was having issues with his marriage cos it was always issues with his wife.
The wife kept complaining about her husband cheating on him. That he is always on the phone with girls…my husband and myself scolded him many times but he kept saying his wife is just being ridiculous and exaggerating. This continued for almost 2 twos. Their issues were compounded because this lady was not able to conceive for him too.
They finally separated. I noticed that this guy started coming to our house when his wife moved out to take food. Which is understandable. I mean, his wife left him so anyone would understand that he may need home made food and him coming to our house for food was no surprise.
What turned out to be a surprise however is that one day, my aunty was making food and said that this guy had sent her money to help him cook different soups and stew. So that he can store them in the freezer since he had no wife. I was like: why will this guy send my aunty on this kind of errand but I still tried to be on the understanding side. And that is how my aunty started cooking for him and he will come and pick up the foods she made.
Sometimes, my aunty will take the food to him. He will send a driver or give her money for Uber. Like I said, its a family situation and we all truly believe in helping each other. But this guy’s former wife then called me one day and was shouting. That she found out why the marriage did not work out. That she found out that my aunty and my husband’s brother are f*kcing each other.
I was like: this woman is really crazy and must have lost it totally. Maybe she heard my aunty was cooking for her husband and felt threatened but to suggest that my aunty was sleeping with her husband was crazy. So, I told my husband. My husband and I called his brother and he of course went mad and said his wife was lying. The entire family was mad with her for that lie she was trying to cook up.
