When your husband or wife has an argument with their sibling, should you also have been with them too?
It’s normal for siblings to fight, and move on after an argument.
But one woman presented to Maina Kageni her very special and frustrating family situation.
The woman spoke of the troubles she faces because her situation ‘is very silly’.
Her husband has a habit of fighting with his brother, and after, warns her not to talk to her sister in law and children.
Frustrating right? It’s worse because they live in the same compound, and life is unbearable.
When they argue he tells me that if I talk to my sister in law I will see. He tells me to even tell my nieces and nephews not to come to our house.
Yet we live in the same compound in ushago, so even my brother in laws wife has been warned not to talk to me also.
She gets so upset with me when the brothers fight and the worst thing is that our husbands usually quietly makeup and don’t tell us.
We only get to see them talking with each other. Can you imagine after they have told us not to talk to each other?
They fight in the bar and tell us not to talk to each other, I even have to tell my kids not to talk to their cousins because daddy said so, then when the men make up they don’t tell us we just see them with each other, it is so hard
If your husband is not in good terms with his friend, should you also be expected to carry the same grudge?
