True Life Story: My Brother Is A Hypocrite -His Wife Deserves Better Treatment
Hello Lively Stones,
My brother is a hypocrite. Money is truly the root of all evil. My brother married his wife whom the entire family adores about seven years ago. Aunty Vero met my brother when he had absolutely nothing to his name. Aunty was a business woman when she got married to my brother. My brother joined her and they both built the business to a multimillion business today.
From a one room apartment, they have built their own house. My family members love Aunty Vero because she accommodates all of us. Even when they were living in one room, we all stayed with them. To when they are living in their own house. My siblings and relatives as well as her relatives can come to stay with them as long as they like.
I have been living in their boys quarters since last year after NYSC. In February this year, Aunty brought a woman that was going through abuse in her marriage in the village to come and work as a cleaner in the house. The woman claimed that her baby daddy almost killed her. She went to church to complain and that is how the village pastor begged Aunty to help this woman.
Aunty brought this woman to work as cleaner from the village so she can get money to stand on her own. Aunty asked her to stay in the quarters. That is how big Aunt’s heart is. This woman started staying in the BQ me and one other relative. Its 3 different rooms in the BQ.
Not up to 2 months after, I started noticing this woman would receive late night visitor. I became curious cos I was like, who does she know in the city. The person usually comes around few minutes to 1am and leaves before 5am. Her door opens very quietly and I only noticed cos I am a very light sleeper.
I got too curious because I was wondering how come she was receiving guest and the security man was allowing the guest at such an ungodly hour. I planned to catch her red handed. One night few weeks ago, I got up as early as 4.30am…and the guest came out from her room exactly 5 minutes to 5am. I stood by my door and pointed touch at the person and guess who I saw…it was my stupid brother.
This man with the most loving and caring wife was sneaking into this woman’s room from 1am to 5am. I was weak. I planned to shout that day but I could not. My brother just started begging me…that he will explain later. For five days, I was avoiding him cos I was too shocked and angry at what I discovered. He kept trying to call me but I ignored his call.
Eventually…he came to my room and begged me to listen to him. He explained that it was a mistake and I should not tell Aunty Vero…that he will not do it again. I told him to send the woman away cos its unfair on Aunty. He said…he does not have any reason to send her away and if he does,…Aunty will suspect something.
When I confronted the woman…she said she never wanted it …that my brother persuaded her. And because she cannot go back to the village…she agreed. I am pissed off…its been over two months…even though I have not seen my brother come to the woman’s room anymore…each time I see this woman and my brother … I get so angry and feel the injustice to Aunty.
The all of a sudden…two days ago….they started again. This time, my brother asked me to mind my business or leave his house. That I have no right to get myself involved with his marriage problems. That I will understand when I get married. I love my Aunty…everyone loves her. She does not deserve this treatment. She is too kind. That evil woman must be removed. Even if they want to cheat…not inside Aunty’s home. Its wrong and I want it to stop.
Please advice me…should I report my brother to his wife or my other siblings, maybe they can talk to him . Yes…he has money and they may not want to offend him but without Aunty…he would not have this money. I don’t know what to do. Please advise me.
