Make sure his family likes you – Woman gives advise as she divorces husband after 10 years
A Nigerian lady, Rebecca has taken to Twitter to reveal the piece of relationship advice she got from her aunt who split from her husband.
She said the woman divorced her husband after being married for 10 years and she told her some important things to know before settling down.
Rebecca quoted her aunt as saying that a woman must first have her own money before settling down.
The second point was for her to ensure that the family she is marrying into actually likes her.
The lady wrote; “My Aunty divorced after 10 years and she had two advices for me
1) Kiki please don’t marry without your own money.
2) Make sure his family likes you
I can never forget this and I always look out for this.
Once you’re more successful than their son na there wahala de really start. And you’ll be wondering is it not this people that was forming love for me? The shock is crazy in that moment.
You have men who report physically to their people practically every week. Them asking what the wife feeds him with, cloths , run errands for them (his parents are not old or bedridden), even to the extent of how and when he colabo wt his wife etc. And yet, he has a stable Job.”
In related news, a woman recently lamented bitterly after making what she thought was a sound financial decision which turned around to affect her negatively.
She said she fixed all her assets and properties in her brother’s name, but his wife recently filed for divorce and demanded half.
According to the woman, who wrote to Ugandan financial advisor, Ssalongo Ssali, she had been saving and acquiring properties without informing her husband.
The mother of three bought plots of land, motorcycles for business, started a rental company and registered everything under her brother’s name.
She did that in case her husband tries to divorce her, unfortunately, her brothers’s wife who is aware that she fixed her assets in his name still wants half of the properties in the divorce settlement.
The distraught woman has asked for advise on what to do now that her sister-in-law with to kids wants to claim her properties through the divorce.
In her words; I am a married woman and a mother of 3 kids. My husband is financially well off. I am working at my professional job and he left me with full authority and freedom to manage my finances as i wish.
I have saved and by God’s grace, i have secretly accumulated a number of property including rentals, various plots of land, taxis for business etc. To be honest, i registered most of my property into my brother’s names with fear that in case my husband divorces me, i have all my property and i move on.
Unfortunately my brother’s wife of 2 kids has recently filed for divorce and wants more than half of his property and fortune. To make matters worse, she is aware of all property registered in her husband’s names including my investments! And she’s very serious with divorce and property sharing! I really regret why i did this! How can i save my investments? Advise me.
