Good morning and Compliments of the season. Trust you had a great weekend. For some of us, we resumed to work last week, while for some we are just resuming today. There is also school resumption today in most places. Here is wishing everyone a pleasant and fulfilling 2018.
Back to our story on the Abioyes, I shared the story two weeks ago (you can visit my blog http://www.adewumioni.com, if you missed it).
Some questions were raised, and here are my views:
1. Where did the Abioyes get it wrong?Upward change in wealth usually tempts us to buy new cars, houses or some fancy vacations or clubs. We start spending less time with our family, which is where the Abioye’s got it wrong. Did they need a maturing girl alike Ebele as an househelp? Maybe, but she should have been enrolled in school also.
2. Should David have told his wife when he stumbled into Ebele scantily cladded?
Absolutely. She would have been able to scold Ebele and plant some fear in her.
3. What should they do?
I believe Ebele needs to leave but they both have to take responsibility for her upkeep before and after delivery. They need to inform her mother and probably secure accommodation for Ebele and her mother.
4. What are the learning points of the story?
Consider well before accepting juicy job offers, they come with a lot of baggage that damage homes.
Don’t be in a hurry to change your status when your wealth increases.
Spend more time with your spouse.
Be man enough to tell your spouse or a reliable mentor, when you are having strange feelings for someone other than your spouse. They can help you get over it.
Thanks to those who contributed. I will share another case study next week.
Have a great week!
