"I wish men worried about our feelings half as much as we worry about theirs..." Stolen quote from "Mrs Hughes", Downton Abbey. #Read #Comment #Enjoy.
My brother-in-law lived in the states for a while and came home (Lagos) to spend a little time with his family. He is staying with my hubby and I (for a month) which seemed like a reasonable inconvenience. We had a small welcome party for him so I was hostess with the mostess for the night. It was a fun night with a generous consumption of alcohol by most guests. Lots of good jokes and great music. I don't drink much so I stepped into the kitchen to get water and another round of snacks for the crew and my brother in law followed shortly behind me. I opened the fridge and the next thing I felt was a firm slap on my ASS followed by this statement "damn woman, you get correct particulars" I was in shock but for some reason I couldn't scream. I was temporarily speechless and couldn't believe I had such delayed reaction! What manner of man is this??? After what seemed like a long minute! I grabbed his throat and told him if he ever tried that shit again I would mark his face. I went back to the party not wanting to make a scene or be dramatic but I was uncomfortable the whole night and couldn't believe I had another 3 weeks with this man in the house. I'm wondering how and if I should tell my husband. Should I stomach it for the next 3 weeks or tell my husband to send him packing now. Is that too dramatic? I'm also tempted to say nothing at all since I've put him in his place but is that risky?
When dealing with inappropriate advances from an in-law, there is indeed an awkwardness to telling your partner the truth about a family member but at what expense? They may not want to believe you or you could be the cause of bad blood amongst siblings. #SpeakTheTruth #Relationships #Love #Wisdom #WhatSayethThee
Today's chickchat with @conniegirlswag
In such a situation as this, what course of action would you take? No woman wants to be the cause of bad blood between siblings, but then what's the price she would have to pay for her silence? Or should she just tell her husband what happened and damn the consequences, knowing that she did no wrong?
Happy New Month guys! May your September be a month of blessings on blessings. Amen.
