MyStory: My father took other wives

What’s that gonna cost him?

I grew up in a happy family in a small village. We were five kids My family was well known because my father was rich man. Life was pretty awesome.

Then my father took more wives and they had children. The family started to get so big that my father couldn’t look after all of us. He wasn’t rich anymore.

He wasn’t able to afford all his wives and children. So he told us that that each wife would have to take care of her children without his help. After a few months my mother, who was the first wife, decided to get a divorce. She could not accept my father’s behaviour any more.

The second wife didn’t want us to leave. She begged my mom to stay. Then she asked my mom to leave us with our father. My mom said she would never do that! We left and we haven’t seen my father since. He's never sent money or asked how we are doing.

This Tune Me reader struggled to deal with his/her father having many wives. How would you cope in the same situation? Would you be as upset as this reader’s mother?

To tune me member who wrote the story: my father took other wives. Know one thing, millions of children around the whole would live under this error...even I myself live in it. Yes it is painful and awful while at the same time disturbing, and like I said I'm from the same situation, life gave me a lesson that goes: it doesn't care where you are from or what happened to you, it cares about what you have. So my advise to you is that do not use that as a reason why you are stagnant in life but rather make it a motivation, fight to liberate yourself from the chain of poverty. Change what you can change, leave the rest to God. You can still change your future to a bright one but your father's decisions you can not change...don't greaf on that just cultivate yourself, even if rain falls but if it falls on concrete it has no efect so motivate yourself and you shall be the best.
