Today, I will like to share an educative but inspiring story with you. It will only take just 2 minutes to read this short story!
A couple had a misunderstanding and as a result drove in separate cars to church.
When they got to church, they sat down together smiling as people complimented them but all they did was to put up a smiling face for people not to know that they were at ‘war’ with each other.
At the end of the service, the husband drove home while the wife waited to attend the women’s meeting after the service. The husband was home already, when he checked his phone, his wife had called him thrice. He disregarded calling her back out of malice. The wife drove in some forty minutes later. He saw Usman opening the gate for her as his phone went on ringing. He checked it. It was his wife. She was in her car at the garage already.
“What is she calling me for? Foolish and stubborn wife!” He said and ignored her calls.
The call went on for a while. He ignored it as he sat with the TV.
Thirty minutes later, she did not come in. Something told him to go and check.
“Is she still in the car? Yes she must be there.”
He called Usman, “Is madam in the car?”
Few minutes later, Usman rushed in. “Madam dey sleep inside the car o!”.
That was when he woke up and rushed downstairs.
“Asthma! She was Asthmatic! Could she be having her usual attack? Could she have forgotten her inhaler?”
He quickly took the inhaler and rushed downstairs. When he got there, she was almost breathless. Usman and the husband quickly carried her to the back seat and drove off, he sped like a bat out of hell, to a clinic nearby.
The wife was confirmed dead! If he had picked her call early enough, probably she could have been saved. When you leave domestic disagreement to fester for too long, it leads to greater evil. The Husband is weeping mad, blaming himself…”I killed my wife!”
Only God knows how many wives, husbands, children have died such a needless death.
Couples must cultivate love for one another. No matter how angry you are with your spouse or friends please don’t allow any disagreement to go on for long without settling your differences. It is senseless to lose a Spouse or a friend this way. May God keep you and bless your marriage and relationship.
In my next post, I will write on the effects of anger in marriage.
Before you read the next post, I have a question for you:
Is the man guilty or not? Please give your opinion on this.
It is good to share this with others. Feel free to share this with your family, friends and loved ones.
