What is the point of getting married if you will not live with your wife, was the question Maina Kageni posed to his listeners after a woman confessed how her husband left her with his mother, with a silly excuse.
The husband thought it was a good idea to dump his wife in ushago (upcountry) with his mother and sadly is causing untold stress to his wife.
She narrated to Maina Kageni
I’m a victim. I’m liviing with the mother int he same house and it’s been six years now.
He said that things are not doing good in Nairobi and he took me to his mothers house but he is living in Nairobi himself.
I’m with the mother in Kaimbu, but hatuwezi kaa wawili, there is pressure, nimejaribu kumpush anirudishe Nairobi akasema hapana.
It’s so hard here I’m like the maid, I do everything in the house for his mother, it’s not easy.
I have two children, I see myself living here forever, coz I have tried pushing him to remove me from here but he resists.
He doesn’t visit me often. The last time he visited was 2017 December, I went once to Nairobi and he chased me away saying Nairobi is not for someone like me
Can y’all see how she is being played by her husband?
Have you tried living with your in-laws? How did you make it work, or didn’t it work?
