Beyond Religion And Culture: Be you a man or woman, the day you call your in-laws out on the social media, means you don’t have respect for them and also, you do not have shame.
As Africans on the continent of Africa, we have a communal way of resolving our problems. We exhaust all the aunties, uncles, sisters, brothers, father, mothers and finally, kinsmen avenues, before taking any other step.
Taking any other step should not be washing the dirty linen of your in-laws and yourself in the public and then, tell the world to understand how good you have been to your wife or husband, yet their persecution of you.
You might be what they had been accusing you of, by your appearance on the social media with what was supposed to be a private and family issue, that needed to be settled.
No sensible person takes it when a brother, sister or whoever that is connected to one by blood or marriage or bond takes what ought to be a family or roundtable affair to the social media. It is a sacrilege!
Imagine a president of a country who has often been sick for a long time, yet his sickness has not been made public. Can someone take a clue from that?
Just a little thing, you rush to the social media to tell them how brainless you are and call it wisdom. Who cares and who do you want to cover your shame?
No couple opens the two eyes for each other in marriage. You did this for him, you did that for her, for the family, yet the family does not like you? Check your manners!
Be careful how you run to the social media with your family issues; social media is a different issue and should be left at that.
Do everything within your coffer to avoid the social media with any sort of family, relationship or friendship issues.
Restraint from publicly making your family issues known is the key for a respectable and mature lifestyle.
Not even separation, divorce, fracas should make headlines. Clandestinely move your way and move on if you so wish, in lieu of jabbering on the social media.
