I’m a married woman and what is bothering me right now is how my father treated us when we were young. He abandon my mum leaving three of us for her to take responsibility. My mum struggled all alone from shelter to feeding nd school fees.
My dad never cared. Unfortunately we lost my mum in 2012, after a brief illness. Three of us struggled and buried my mum, till today am still in pain over mums death. 2years ago someone asked my hand in marriage. When we got to the village, after introduction.
My dad join hands with other extended family members and gave my husband bride price list worth 1.5 million naira. I cried.
After all many talk and movement we agreed and my hubby begged them that he just want to pay bride price alone. My father gave my husband bride price list worth 1.5 Million naira and on my upbringing, He spend nothing.
My uncle begged them, and they collect the bride price. Now after abandoning us since childhood, my dad is now calling us to send him money and even getting angry on top of all he has done. I don’t feel like responding to him because my mum has not forgiven him before she died. Infact I still see myself as a fatherless lady.
