You are doing a good job BellaNaija. I’m writing on behalf of my sister-in-law who is at a crossroad. I will try to be as precise as possible. She has been separated and not divorced from her legal husband over five years now with three children. The husband abandoned her and the children with her mother (my mother-in-law) without taking financial responsibility over any of them up till date. That’s a story for another day. My husband pays the school bills of one of the children however, and she also struggles on her own to cater to the needs of the remaining two children. She likes me a lot and confides in me, hence, her reason for seeking my advice on this difficult issue I’m about to share.
Now, this man has been financially helpful to my sister-in-law and promises to take care of her and all her needs and also help train one of her three children up on till university level but not without my sister-in-law marrying him legally and having atleast a child for him. She doesn’t wish for more children, at the same time she doesn’t want this opportunity to slide. Note that the man is financially capable.
Please share your thoughts on how to advice her. Thank you.
