….He’s running away with retirement monies - estranged wife
he family feud has degenerated to a bitter spill as the estranged wife of the retired army officer is also accusing her husband of abandoning her now that he has retired and has money.
The estranged wife confessed that they are currently facing problems in the family, but blames her inlaws for siding with her husband without assisting with reconciliatory means.
The wife said, “My in-laws are siding with their brother as if I’m the only one to blame on the challenges we are facing now.
The challenges have been there for a long time and six children have been born out of wedlock and we fought until I accepted the situation.
I welcomed his six children here at home and some of them are still very young and still at school”.
She stated that she has silently endured the pain of his husband’s transgression and accused him of still holding on to her mistakes of the past without forgiving her. “Family problems are there in every marriage and everyone has his own skeletons in his or her closet but it’s painful when your in-laws decide to abandon you instead of uniting the family.
It pains me that I’m staying with his minor children here and now that he has money he has abandoned us for other women as that’s the reason he moved back to his parental home”.
She described the situation as not new as her husband has been doing the same disappearance acts for some time and that such has always been followed by reports of a child born out of wedlock. She said he would come back home and they have to start all over again.
“I’ve withstood all this for years, hence the six children that have been added to our family. We talked about the issue of the last cheque with my husband on how we should save and take care of the family, but that has changed and now he is at his parental home”.
The wife said it pains her not getting the support of the family as she had hoped that with the last cheque they would unite as a family.
She said the situation is very bad in their homestead and she is also concerned that she is fighting a losing battle as her in-laws are ill-advising her husband.
“I will leave the family home eventually, but I’m concerned about the minors he brought home from his escapades. They are still young and they only know me as their mother,” she added.
