Chronicle Of Blog Visitor Narrative...

 Hmmm...








STAND ALONE NARRATIVE
EXHAUSTED FROM BEING MARRIED



Hi Stella,  please help me post. 

Pls married folks how do you guys cope? Especially women married to Nigerian men with kids; combined with in-laws that won't stay in their home?


As a married woman with kids sometimes I feel like running away, but to where I don't know. I Am just so exhausted doing the chores alone down to looking after 2 toddlers alone, sometimes in-laws still drop their kids with me for days not minding if I can cope with it or not. 


Me wey lazy and hate doing chores and cooking but since I got married I turned a super woman that can do anything. I Am just tired and exhausted and I think i am falling into depression because I need help, I need my family to cheer me up.


 Even if i am married I still feel lonely. Oga is not always around and the few times that his around instead of spending time with us, he would rather go see his family then come back at night eat and go to bed, the next day he is off again.


I will be bothered that he is still at work since he is late not knowing he is having a nice time with his family, after hanging out with them he will still drag them 2 the house without letting me know he is not coming alone. when they arrive late at night I will still enter kitchen 2 prepare something for them.


I really don't care if he spends time with his family, what pisses me off is that he always gather his family to my home just to stress me out, as I will turn chief cook and cleaner to them, when I don't even enjoy cooking.


sometimes I wish i am not married because i am exhausted. This holiday I planned spending it with my family so that I can rest before school runs start and also to get away from his family as I know my sister in-law would come and drop her 4 kids for me as she always does  in the name of holiday, wey dey find were to drop my kids even if is just for a day so I can get my sanity back na him person wan come drop four children for me.


If not in-laws that won't use their sense or don't have conscience that would do that because my family will certainly not do that since they know couples need their privacy and i won't be able to cope but my in-laws don't know anything like privacy or if I can cope knowing fully well that I don't have a help yet sometimes my house will be looking like a hotel. 


My husband is now saying I can't travel because of insecurity, I so much need my family right now because they are the only ones that will allow me to rest from chores, cooking and looking after my toddlers but right now this man is saying something else, this is actually coming from someone that cannot stay a day without his family in his life now depriving me from seeing my family that I haven't seen for more than 3 years. 


I want to tell him that he shouldn't bring his family home this holiday and I can't babysit his nephews and nieces since I need rest and he has refused to let me go see my family. How do I go about it without him feeling am chasing his family or not happy about him bringing in his family to his house.


 Note whenever his family is around my husband doesn't relate with me well, even when I greet him he doesn't reply, he treats me like i am invisible till they leave before he starts relating with me like nothing happened. we don't even sleep on the same bed whenever they're around as he would just stick with them till they leave then he would start acting normal.



*Ah!!.. This is a one chance Marriage oooh...WHAT!!! .... My mouth is just hanging loose. Please tell him you are breaking down and need some rest this holiday, if he doesnt get it then pretend that you have broken down.....Tell him also that you cannot take care of his sisters kids as you need time for yourself....What in heavens name made you agree to be taking her kids?

I feel so bad that you are in this situation all in the name of marriage......


How in heavens name did you marry this man?

    1. This was me 10 years ago. This is slavery. He comes from a family who sees wives as house helps. It’s the reason he avoids you when they visit to consolidate what they all believe. You either define clear boundaries as a wife and helpmate or you leave. It only gets worse if you enable it. Stand up for yourself!!!

    2. Was so angry while reading this 🥺. You mean you can't tell your husband not to allow his sister's children come for holiday? Are you scared of your own husband? That's why they say, don't start what you can't finish.
      As for me, I will tell him straight up I can't. Ah ha?
      And why won't he let you visit your family? Hmmmm. Continue nagging him please. Always remind him you're tired and rest, look for an example of someone that broke down because of stress and tell him.

    3. Madam, you haven’t even had the conversation with your husband and you are complaining.
      When I was still young in marriage I called my mum up telling her I was tired and exhausted… she simply told me to rest, she said if you can’t do anything say so, the world will not fall and really the world did not.( and I even had a help, I just liked doing something’s myself)

      Also have you heard the term “boundaries” set them, when next your sister inlaw is coming to drop her kids off, tell her you are tired and would not be able to handle them, when she gets “NO” 3 times her brain will reset (who keeps 4 kids for another woman)

      My hubby used to work in another state so I can understand how aloof your hubby may be in helping out or being present in your marriage because he is used to a “come and go” lifestyle but you have to make him understand the importance of family time.

      For the in-laws that show up in the night looking for food, simply form sickness or fainting for them, do this 3 times and they will get the message.

      Kindly try all these after you have sat your husband down and explained everything to him, beg him to understand that you are also human. If he has a conscience he will adjust and speak to his people.
      But with your in-laws you do need to be firm and say your mind. If you only keep complaining it will lead to resentment.

      Push up (original)

    4. Madam this is slavery nah. You still call this marriage. You would soon be a shadow of yourself. I wouldn't ask you to leave. But use your tongue to count your teethooo . Don't die before your time. This might just get worse with timeoio

    5. Have you explained to your husband. Communicate this with him or show him this post to read directly from this blog and he will get to see our comments hopefully, after reading that majority do not support him he may repent.

      If the above doesn't work then learn to use those kids that will come for holidays to ease your work load at home. It is an advantage to some extent. Look for house chores and assign to them one by one. One person should always sweep the parlor, kitchen and corridor, the other person should sweep the rooms and your kid should sweep outside. Make them to mop the rooms on Saturdays or when the rooms are dirty. They should wash the whole toilet everyday. Share the washing of dishes among them. The eldest should always be in the kitchen with you when you are cooking. Use errands to finish his/her comfort and next time she/he will tell mommy that no more spending holidays with you.

      Make sure you don't lift a pin as long as they are in your house. The only thing you should do is to cook.

      Again,anytime your husbands direct siblings visits don't do anything for them. As you are cleaning the house, tell them to assist you in doing other things. Make sure you always cook and serve your husbands food so that when he comes black and sees that his food is already served, he won't tell you to go and prepare another food. After all you had no idea that he was coming home with another person. You have served the food and warmed the remaining so nobody should come and disturb you again to prepare another food. If he insists that you go serve them with the left over food, then try to stylishly grumble so they will see that it's stressful to you after serving and warming the food for the day and someone and comes home compelling you to go back to the kitchen

      If your husband will read and see my comment please tell me to delete it or tell Stella to delete

    6. Slavery indeed, if I say I was angriest while reading this, it is understatement.
      It seems you are house wife.
      But not withstanding
      The early you let him know that you are a slave not a his wife is better.
      I will advice if you have money to travel to your family do travel before him or any of his family members will come around.
      When they come or he comes, he will look out for you and the kids. If he calls tell him you will come back when he is ready to take you as his wife not his slave and family slave.

    1. Communication is key in any situation. Poster communicate your feelings first to your husband and see his reactions. Explain to him why you needed the rest and if he fails to understand, when his sister brings her kids, politely refuse them . It's simple o. At this level of our lives, it's not nice closing your mouth and dieing in silence. If hubby no wan understand as na man e be , tell the Sis too how much you need rest.

      Delete
    2. Madam, sit him down and talk to him and if he doesn't listen, fake "anything". As per your sis in law, tell her that you are not too strong, and if she insist and send her kids, share chores for all of them, next time, they will tell their mum they won't come again and even if your hubby complains about the chores, tell him to get you a maid. If you're tired go inside and sleep. Also, always put his food in a food flask and go and sleep in case of those night visitors. No kee yasef o.

    3. Poster, your husband doesn't care about you. You are just a doormat and a housemaid. Divorce him and live your life.

      People living in loveless marriages should learn to file for divorce. Marriage no be by force. This long-suffering woman will lose it day if care is not taken. I won't tolerate half of what people tolerate these days in the name of marriage. Haaaaaa! After going through hell all these years, I'll still go through hell in marriage again? Mba!

  4. Madam, marriage is not by force, and I don't see this like a marriage but a thing of convenience. Your husband is not really int you. He values his family than the one he has with you. You have to talk to him and pour out your mind. Ask for a help, if he doesn't agree agree, tell him you cant do it alone. Tell him you need to see your family too because you miss them. Are you sure he doesn't have a family elsewhere? If he doesn't agree to any of your opinion, the decision is left to you if you want to continue or not.

      You need to take your Husband out to a private place and ask him what really is the problem. Find someone to take care of the kids for you.
      I also guess he's wealthy and the family has a big hand in it.

      Sorry for what you are going through

    2. The way you people comment sef - How can you say her husband does not respect her?

      Someone in a marriage is refusing to actually state her pain point to her husband who is always not available due to work - yet you say he does not respect her?

      Make una dey use sense small small.

      Poster - hear my words:

      1. We men don't really see what women see. You expect him to see your hard work and then defend you. We men are busy with legacy, working, making money and don't see the small stuff.

      Call a meeting, sit with him, explain all you are going through, how it affect you. How much work you do. Let him know you are okay with your inlaws - but when they come, you need help e.g. maybe get someone to come and cook/support you in that time period etc.

      Your husband is a family oriented person. He loves his family.You can't take him away from that. Same way you will feel bad if your sister in law were to take your brother fully away from you.

      Speak with him. We men are usually very sensible as long as you appeal to our logical sense of reasoning. Don't speak out of emotions. Don't insult his family members when detailing the painpoint, be polite - ask for what you want and even add sex ontop for him.

      Trust me - he will be the one to resolve the issue without you saying too much.

  11. He's still attached to his family more than to you. It equally means he does not value you as much. He's into pleasing them overlooking your convenience, concerns and (mental) health. He knows what he's doing but getting away with it because you have not brought it up. I hope you know stress makes one age quickly. Choose being a "good" wife, keeping quiet and being stressed or letting him know how you feel and his family stop stressing and inconveniencing you.

    Good luck.

  17. I don’t know if he’s into his family more. I think he’s into fun more
    He works and then wants to enjoy and you your food is good. It just takes one of two times of them coming and you saying you’re having a bad headache and need to rest but they can continue while you go to bed. They have made his house the fun house and there are pros and cons to that. The fun house person gets to know what’s going on cause people talk whe they’re having a good time. But then hosting is work
    I think you’re looking to him to meet your need for companionship and your need for help. Why don’t you get a nanny or househelp that comes and goes to help relieve the stress. It seems he too is running from work in the house

  21. Here is what you are going to do, that's if you are ready.
    1.) Stand up for yourself. Because no one else will do so. If you die today, they will replace you. It doesn't look like this man loves you. Have mercy on your toddlers and DON'T DIE. That same sister in law will get somewhere else to put her children if you are no more. Stress kills faster than most diseases.
    2.) If you cannot stand up for yourself, you can take this route. When you notice he is driving in, lay flat on the floor close to the kitchen. Fake faint. Let them take you to the hospital. A lot of drama will follow, possibly your family will complain that you are under a lot of stress and they want to take care of you.
    All in all, you need to realise that if you die for people that will not move a muscle for you, you have wasted your life and rendered your innocent children motherless.

    Don't forget to give us feedback.

  22. Your husband na way. Tell him you need your space for your sanity but don’t send your kids to the sister ,if you are not comfortable with that. Tell him you can’t cook once it is past a particular time of the night and make sure you learn to sleep without him being back. Put his food on the dining and sleep, that way he will share the food with his people and get the message clear and loud.

  23. I understand your pain,from your narrative it's like you're afraid of your husband.Tell him how you feel, let him know that allowing his sister's children to come to your home every holiday is stressing you. You've tried and it's time you stop them.

      Not true. Wives complain more publicly. So we hear more of wives tales. It is the female relatives of husbands who know. A complaining man losses respect. Men bear all or take action. Women shine teeth and go behind to complain in public.

      This poster as, usual, has complained in public. But no where did she write that she has discussed with her husband or even the sister-in-law.

      If you ask that woman, she will tell she thought poster enjoyed her children stay with poster as much as the children do.

      Children don't go to where they don't enjoy being at. If they regularly allow their mother to drop them off at Poster's, then poster is a big pretender. And that's why her husband married her. He would be very surprised the day poster discuss this matter with him

  30. Hmm
    I think your hubby is just too attached to his family but even at that he shouldn't let them discomfort or stress you out.
    Before he even initiate their coming, try be the first to tell him you are looking for where to drop your kids and rest, even suggest them going to his sister's house, he might object but it'll register in his mind that u are even tired of your own kids talk more of bringing other people. Good luck

    A lady who was going through domestic violence had her husband beat her one time. She lfte the house for about 3 days or so. No one knew where she was. Her husband went through hell looking for her. I'm told that was the last time he laid his hands on her.

    1. I think what happens is when a young girl is newly married, She is all neat and tidy , has time to do the cooking but that is because She had the strength at the time. With time, kids come, they might move to a bigger space, She gets busier, interests change and she is even trying to figure out life. While she is growing and evolving, unreasonable inlaws expect her to just be static and be the same person that could meet all the expectations etc. I could feel like having your kids today and not feel like having them tomorrow. And not everyone is expressive. Some people’s conscience and temperament do not let them want to hurt others. If you see that I do not bring my own kids to your house, that should be enough signals for you. Except you just want to be unreasonable. That is also a signal that as an inlaw, you should approach the issue with every sensitivity. I think to the wife, I wouldn’t advise you not to lie to be sick or any other thing like that. You need to stand your ground. If you’re afraid of your husband, time to prayerfully put the fear away. You will need to prayerfully approach this fear by communicating with your husband and standing your ground. While at it, prayerfully increase your financial power. You need to pay for services that would make life easier for you. Hope this helps.

  42. Madam kpele, that’s a typical marriage for a woman living in Nigeria. It will overwhelm you with all manner of stress. Thank God he even provides. I used to think it’s normal for a wife to look older than her husband after some years of marriage till I travelled abroad and saw the opposite. Before I left, one baba that is 15years older asked me to marry him and when I raised the age gap as concern, he said I shouldn’t worry about that, that in five years time after marriage, we will look like mates. Can you imagine that? You wonder why when women travel abroad, they no dey gree come back again. Marriage is hard for a woman in Nigeria abeg.

You saw all these things before y’all married and still got married to him but now you want to come here and make the man look bad.Some of y’all marry for money and then cry that you are sad later.if he’s acting like this now,it means he didn’t just start it and you saw the signs all along.Your husband is extremely wrong for the way he treats you but I’m not talking about him today.

  45. Lol.. this chronicle has Anambra men embedded in it. Na them sabi do this nonsense pass anyone. Most even tag their mothers along with them to come and sample the wife's food and increase her chores.

    Madam,you want to die young sha. Why won't you open your mouth and help yourself from impending heart attack or stroke? I know how stressed I am already with a child below 6years on holiday and another baby below a year,and still doing my daily chores and other runs. Then imagine my husband's people coming to increase the stress... you say what? I will deal with him in the other room and he will find a way to disperse them back to their coven. What nonsense! We gotta stop enabling nonsense in the hopes of keeping the marriage. Even God appointed the man the high priest of the home and it's his duty to keep and defend his marriage and home.

    As for all these female in-laws, weldone oo. Many of them read what their comrades do online and follow the bandwagon to condemn but go right back to harass their brother's wife. Your karma still dey front. That your daughter go enter person house one day.

  55. I really feel for the poster but what can I say, women are raised to believe that they should live their lives to please their husbands and in laws why that is not bad idea , but when you get entitled husband and in laws, women should learn to adjust.
    I learnt a lot from my mom's marriage, she was the good wives gang that fed ,clothed, sheltered, and even pocket monied a man.
    She was accused of birthing female children, she lived her life a shadow of herself.
    When I first meet someone, I treat them they way I want them to treat me, as I learn the person I start treating them the way they treat me.
    I will cook revenge food, that after eating and complaining I will mutter am sorry na stress cause am followed by a resounding silence by the time I cook it 3 times ,nobody will disturb me.
    For the children, I will politely lie that I have ministry or a friend that I need to visit with quality I am sorry ,would have loved to baby sit, then lock my gate from outside incase you come to check. I won't stress you ooo and can never allow you stress me.
    Outright 'no" will bring hatred since she was enabling them.
    Look for ways that are perfect with "I am sorry Ma/Sir" while gradually freeing yourself from slavery, they will understand later you played them but will respect your pattern, not every problem is solved by violence.

    In event he does not understand you, drastic measures come in. You need to faint when he or family is around and if possible, tell your family about your plan so they call your man and request you come home. All the best

  67. The solution is to move to another house very faaaaar from his family. If it is your personal house, let it out to tenants.
    You are a woman, cook up stories of why you should move.
    Let me teach you one:
    Firstly, Start waking up in the middle of the night to scream, scream and shout "pls don't kill me pls don't kill me"
    Do it for a few nights, tell him that masquerade was pursuing you with a Cutlass. Other times, tell him that a monster was pursuing you with knife. Another time, tell him that armed robbers were chasing you with guns. Make it look real.
    No two:
    When he comes back from work, tell him you saw a big black snake in the room after you must have scattered it well. Tell him the snake disappeared immediately you screamed God's name(I don't know your religion)
    Thirdly:
    Scratch your body with something and tell him you saw marks on your body in the morning or qhne you took a nap in the afternoon and woke up.
    Lastly, tell him a prophet or Alfa(depending on your religion) stopped you on the road and told you the only solution to you and your kids being alive is to leave the house to a very far place because they used the land for rituals which should be renewed after a number of years, they did not renew it. So the deity is looking for blood. It is women's and children's blood that it drinks.
    Madam, use your woman sense pls. Leave that place this holiday so your kids can resume in another school next session .
    Also, pretend to be sick. Start from today. Leave the house tattered and tell him you are very sick. First buy antimalarial drugs and remove like one dose and throw away and tell him you have taken drugs but no difference, that you need bestest because when you lie down, you felt better. He will tell his sister that she should not bring her kids as you are sick. Also, get someone to come do the cleaning and some errands for a fee if you can afford it. Start now after forming sickness and make sure it continues even if you move out.

I went to an Igbo end of year party one car blocked me so tight I couldn’t drive out and an uncle was desperate to leave to go to work went back gave car reg to everyone on the table no one claimed the car. Approached the mc to announce the reg for where it took him 30 mins to do so . The owner a lady whom I’d approached earlier that denied ownership of the car now reluctantly came out to enter the car .i approached her and gave her a piece of my mind! Omo she vex begin walk away that she’ll no longer move if you see how I dragged the cretin back ehhn it wasn’t a small thing people now came to separate us that’s how she received sense!

  69. Your husband does not love you simple.
    He just married you to fufil that part of his life, to have kids and keep a home.
    Omo marriage don dey fear me o.
    Which kain life be this na.
    My advice is if your husband has money grab as much as you can.
    If you have your own money still grab as much as you can from him, spoil yourself by hiring maid and a nanny, one to look after the kids and the maid to clean and maybe cook.
    Spend money on yourself, groom your self to the point you become a baddie, not only will you feel good about yourself and your body, you will feel rejuvenated, do weekend vacations with you alone, like go to a nice serene hotel and sleep the night there(biko don't add +1male/female)
    Just feel good and rejuvenated.
    Return home and dont overwork yourself, soon this horsehairight come around and maybe e you can work on your marriage
    Lass lass if this doesn't work leave him.

  71. I tot when a man get married and have his own family he will reduce how he is attach to his family like sisters and brothers.

    I tot when a man loves his wife he protect her from her in laws that want to give her high blood ?

    I tot if a man loves his wife he will assist her with house chores. My brother is always assisting his wife with all house chores oh, I love it when I see him assisting his wife and both of them are playing love.

    Each time we visit them we also assist her to do one house chores or the other even thou she will always be saying please come and sit down and watch film leave it I will so it. I think if there is love between you, your husband and his family then they will respect boundaries. Talk to your husband

  78. Madam
    First, face your marriage. Your husband and wife relationship. Find out what is missing. A comment has been made that your husband is a fun person. That maybe true. Are you a fun person?. Why did your husband marry you. Why did you marry him if yours is not an arranged marriage. Was your husband a family around me person before you married him. Were you going along with the family in marriage theme before your marriage. Did you let your husband know you ware lazy as you said before marriage or you hid. No matter the blame on your husband, the fact remains you are doing beyond your physical level. Without the in-laws, you and your husband would still have had issues caused by your physical limitation. Do serious soul searching. Find answers for yourself first . Treat them as subject to futher review. Meet your husband for a calm non-accusatory serious talk session

    Do not let anybody deceive you. Your husband knows you really do not welcome his adult family during their stay. From your post you do not get very involve in their interactions. That is why he is able to ignore you when they are around. If you are with them or you all are all together, he cannot ignore you.

    It is hard to tell you. And this is from personal experience. There is a void between you and your husband. Settle and fill that void. The rest would be easy.

    Till then, forget all the drama. How may times are going to fake fainting. Avoid any confrontation unless sure it would work.

    Do not wait for children to be brought before you refuse their stay over. Dont turn back children at your door. they will never forget. You have made their stay comfortable and welcoming so far. That is why they agree to repeat visits Call their mother ahead this holiday. Ask after them. Praise their previous company and stay. Tell her that this holiday you will miss their company because you really want the rest. All these said in jovial and chuckling tones should send the message. Dont send your children over to her. A woman selfish as you potrayed her, cannot and will not care for your children. If she accept them, your stress circle continues. She even becomes more entitled to send hers over to your place

    If your husband brings home any female well known to you as family, jovially co-opt her into the kitchen with you. I suspect, however, that most of the family he brings home are male
