Nancy Acosta was an American woman of El Salvadoran descent and every housewife around the world with a serial cheating husband, whether Black, White, Asian or Latino can definitely relate with her story.
In Africa, we always have this notion that ‘oyibo’ (white men) are better lovers because they are monogamous in nature and hardly cheat. We can now see that a bad man is a bad man, irrespective of race or colour.
Our African men are unashamedly polygamous in nature. They flaunt their affairs to get cheered on by their friends and most wives have naturally settled down to the idea that they’ll always have to share their husband’s dick with some woman out there. You’ll even hear some women say something like:
“As long as she provides adequately for me and my children, what’s my own with whatever he does out there?”
Na lie!!! Of course they care. These women know that it’s almost impossible to put an African man on a leach, so they say so out of exasperation. That’s why the bad women go to the strongest witch doctors to cast an obedience spell on their husbands, while the good ones go on their knees, weeping and praying for God to have mercy on their husband souls and save them from STDs. Some women even offer their husbands condoms whenever they are travelling out of town. So all these focus and attention on who he’s sleeping or not sleeping with, only helps to fan their egos until it explodes into uncontrollable proportions.
My mission is to ensure that no other housewife anywhere in the world dies for a worthless cause leaving behind her adorable children without the love and care of a mother. In the process, I’ll be sharing some personal stories, not with the intention to shame my spouse but to save someone’s life and sanity. Believe me, I too at one time in my life suffered a nervous breakdown…I almost completely lost my mind but somehow, I found the will to pick up the pieces and fight for the sake of my children.
Now, let me explain why a wife gets to this stage of emotional vulnerability…
Summary of it all is Mrs. Housewife has no life. When all this is happening to her and the thank you she gets is a cheating husband? Add the mix and you get the highest level of Crazy. Since the housewife is familiar with cooking, I’m going to illustrate what I’m to say next with ingredients. If you are married to an unrepentant cheating man, here’s what you need:
How do you combine these ingredients and bake them to give you sanity and happiness?
