Unorthodox threesome

Infidelity is never acceptable but for some reason, we seem to normalize it nowadays. No one has seen Hell or Heaven. The latter is more desirable than the former. There is absolutely nothing that remains normal forever in life. Drama is part of our daily lives. We can never undo what’s done. Some people will do anything to protect their partners. Even if it means killing.

A lady dated the guy for ages to find out the guy is sleeping with her daughter. He is supposed to have been her stepdad but hence in our culture if you have paid any dowry nothing counts. I really do not know if it’s love, obsession, or being too attached to each other to chase your daughter out because of her infidelity. She indeed betrayed her mom but she is only 14 and that should send signals to the mom that her boyfriend crossed the line.

I cannot give advice to her because we differ when it comes to reacting to some problems in life. The daughter gave birth to her second child on her birthday month turning 15. She had to go and stay with her grandmother as her own mother excommunicated her. All along they’ve been sharing a man which for me is not even sharing. The grown-up man took advantage of or preyed on her. It is only my opinion as the girl is underage. I also do not know if the grandchildren are from this guy or if she moved on but I suspect the first one was his.

The mother though decided to take sides in such an unorthodox threesome. She loves her man and the unfaithful party according to her is the daughter. I feel for a young girl. I suspect she was protecting the man from being arrested for sleeping with an underage, allegedly. I do not know how I would react if I was in her shoes because I do not want to be.
